The Nitecore VCL10 Multi-Functional All-in-One Vehicle Gadget is a 25-lumen emergency flashlight, a flashing red safety light, a magnetized trouble light, and a window-breaker for emergencies— and thanks to its Quick Charge 2.0/3.0 circuitry, it can charge your phone or device quickly. Plug it into your car's DC power (cigarette lighter) socket, and take maximum advantage of the vehicle's power with 5/9/12 VDC, 2.4-amp charging in QC 2.0 or 3.6-12 VDC, 2.4-amp charging in QC 3.0. The VCL10 adjusts its output to suit the device being charged, with a suite of protections against short circuit, over-voltage, under-voltage, and overheating.
The light head on the flashlight tilts 90°, and the VCL10'as built-in battery will run it for up to three hours on a charge. Click the rubber power button on top of the gadget to switch from steady white red to flashing red. The built-in photodetector will sense oncoming traffic and increase the speed of the flash from once per second to 10 times, alerting motorists to your presence on the side of the road (and alerting you to the approaching car). A magnetized body allows you to place the light almost anywhere, making things like changing a flat tire in the dark easier and safer. And if you've been in an accident and your power windows are disabled, the hard tungsten steel window breaker can be used to escape your vehicle.
The ultimate car utility, the Nitecore VCL10 combines all of the features that you need when you have a vehicular emergency. The VCL10 at its core is a 12V USB adapter, sharing that familiar shape that fits into standard cigarette lighter receptacles. While plugged in, the VCL10 can charge just about any USB powered device you have ranging from smart phones to tablets. The VCL10 is also outfitted with a fully functional glass breaker, so in emergency situations it can be used to shatter a window for a quick escape. The body of this gadget is magnetic, making it easy to store hands free which makes the lighting features even more useful. Speaking of the lighting features...
With an internal rechargeable li-ion battery, the Nitecore VCL10 can produce two forms of light for emergency or utility purposes. The first light is a standard white LED that is great for looking in or outside of your vehicle in the dark. The second light is an emergency red light with flashing modes that can be used to signal for help in the event of a breakdown or other disaster. Both lights are mounted on a 90 degree tilt-able head that can be adjusted to suit your needs.
