The NTOI™ Key Ring Flashlight
Everyday Carry tools take many forms; some are designed strictly as weapons and some have greater utility in terms of common needs throughout the day. The NTOI™ Key Ring Flashlight is an excellent addition for men, women, and even your children. The size and profile of this flashlight is really amazing considering the powerful stream of light it provides.
It is made of Aerospace-grade Aluminum Alloy and it is extremely light (0.56 oz.) so you won’t even notice that you are carrying it. The flashlight is about half the length of a pen (3.3 inches x 0.53 inches) and it can be recharged using a USB port (included). It has a pen clip and a keychain loop for convenient carry. Additionally, the NTOI™ Key Ring Flashlight appears to be very durable. This tiny tool packs a visually blinding punch at 380 lumens with the included 10440 Li-ion battery or 210 lumens with a single AAA alkaline battery.
Clearly one of the major advantages of this tool is how convenient it is to carry. This flashlight can be hooked to your keychain, clipped to your purse, or placed in your pocket, just to mention a few. Let’s face it: no tool, whether for self-defense or for your job is valuable if you have to look to find it. That is not a problem with the NTOI™ Key Ring Flashlight!
EASE OF DEPLOYMENT:
Warriors Magazine firmly believes Carry Convenience is directly related to Ease of Deployment; and Ease of Deployment is perhaps the single most important determinant for effectiveness in a sudden street attack. I carry the NTOI™ Key Ring Flashlight on my keychain and to me there is no better place to have it for fast deployment. Unless you are chauffeured around (if that is the case you likely have a security detail as well), you generally have your keys on you. To turn on the light, simply press the tailcap button located at the end of the flashlight itself. If there is any issue at all with this tool, I would say it is engaging the strobe for self-defense. It requires slightly less pressure on the tailcap on/off button without fully depressing it which would turn the light off. While the reason has good purpose - so you don’t accidently deploy the strobe – it is somewhat difficult to do; however, with a little practice it really is not a serious problem.
EFFECTIVENESS: There is zero doubt that this flashlight will disorient a potential attacker at night or during the day and provide a window of opportunity to escape. The strobe on this small tool is substantial in terms of blinding light. When I first got the NTOI™ Key Ring Flashlight I tried it out on myself just for fun; I literally could not see for 5 minutes. This is in addition to having a way to illuminate your target in the dark when attempting to use a weapon, for example a gun.
Here are some highlights of the NTOI™ Key Ring Flashlight:
The legality of any potential self-defense tool is best determined by contacting your local authorities and state legislature. It is very likely this tool is legal everywhere – it is a flashlight and causes no permanent damage to an attacker. However to be certain, you should contact the appropriate agencies including the TSA at, https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/whatcanibring/all ).
