The Inova T3R USB Rechargeable Tactical Flashlight by Nite Ize – A Product Review

Okay, I have to confession to make… I’m a bit of a flashlight fanatic (at least my wife says so) and when it comes to flashlights I tend to be very picky although I have to admit that I do have some of those cheapo’s.
