We know a thing or two about flashlights. We went from the World's Smallest in 2015 to the World's Smallest, Even Smaller in 2017. After 6 successful Kickstarters, $1M+ in funding and delivering 100,000+ flashlights, we wanted to visualize things through a slightly different stream of light; a brighter one.
B U L L 3 T : World's Most Powerful Micro Flashlight, EVER.
We believe that your everyday carry essentials are a reflection of you and your lifestyle. BULL3T is no exception- not only is it functional, beautiful and minimal, but its new design makes it the best, most powerful everyday carry micro LED flashlight available.
We wanted to create something better, brighter and more robust. Keeping the roots of our BULLET design but improving it's functionality and strength.
The most powerful BULLET yet! 100 Lumens packed into a robust design.
How on earth did we pack 100 Lumens into such a compact design? Simple, we upgraded to a state-of-the-art SUPER THIN SMD LED Module offering a higher lumen output for lower energy consumption.
How did we finish this tiny, powerful key torch? Our signature black aerospace aluminum and a NEW SOLID Titanium BULL3T.
One of the most notable advantages of titanium is its strength. It’s among the strongest and most durable metals on the planet, which is why we used it for BULL3T.
In fact, titanium has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element on the periodic table, making it the best possible metal to use for a tiny flashlight. Another key advantage associated with titanium is its natural resistance to rust and corrosion.
We've come a long way since 2015. Our initial BULLET design was flawed, coming undone at the threads at times. To many, a quality control disaster. To us an opportunity to show the world what we were about. Fast forward 4 years, 6 successful projects and over $1M+ raised, here we are.
We wanted to top ourselves when designing BULL3T, designing it smaller than BULLET 02 was near impossible since it's already the World's Smallest, so we took a slightly different approach. It was very important for us to give people what the want out of a EDC flashlight. People wanted brighter, stronger and easy to use, so that’s what we did.
We used a SMD LED Module (surface-mount device light-emitting diode module) LED and added bigger more powerful batteries.
SMD LEDs mount on the surface of electronic boards but do not physically go through the boards like other types of LEDs. This minimizes the amount of space needed to mount the LED. One of the biggest improvements is that SMD spotlights offer a higher lumen output for a lower energy consumption – making them more powerful and energy efficient than older LED lights.
We stuck with our Spring-Lock Mechanism design due to how well it worked for BULLET 02 - second iteration of the World's Smallest Torch Light. However, we made the Gold Plated spring bigger and thicker to provide more pressure inside the casing, giving you a smooth, sturdy operation experience every time.
This time we threw in more powerful batteries, made the threads tighter, finer, and added a rubber O-ring inside the casing to create a more secure and waterproof flashlight. We upgraded our LED to a premium SMD LED, providing a brighter output of 100 LUMENS. In addition, the leverage provided by the mini O-ring makes it easy to twist on/off.
We ditched the "V-Ring" design and added a loop system with a mini key ring. This new design helps BULL3T stay just where you need it, right when you need it.
