Top 10 Flashlights - 2008 Q1

Top Ten Flashlights - 2008

This report presents Top Ten Flashlights for year 2008 (Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4 combined). Overall, year 2008 shows a mixed picture. At one end, there is a continued interest shown by visitors in renewable energy source based flashlights where as, at the other end, the pace at which new flashlights being brought to the market has reduced. You might have noticed that there is no Q4 2008 Top Ten Page. That's because we wanted to provide a overall picture for the year 2008 instead of just Q4 results alone. As the global economic downturn takes it's own toll, the the number of new flashlights being designed, created, reviewed & brought to market has also reduced considerably.

Flashlights with MCU (Microcontroller (µC) Unit) and Cree XR-E or Seoul Zpower P4 LED rule the whole of 2008. NiteCore Extreme from Edge Tactical Co. Ltd gets the ruler 2008 award as it tops on both the top 10 lists.
