Flashlight Accessories You Never Knew Existed

Flashlights are pretty straightforward; you push a button or a switch and a light turns on. Flashlights are one of the most basic types of tools around; a two-year-old can figure out how to use one in a matter of seconds. You might think you know everything there is to know about flashlights, and maybe you’re right. But I bet there are some flashlight products that you’ve never heard of before. Allow me to introduce you to these stellar flashlight accessories.

Interesting Flashlight Accessories

Fenix Flashlight Traffic Wand Tip Diffuser


This is one of the more interesting flashlight accessories out there. I was a little stumped when I first saw this product because it doesn’t really look like anything you’d ever combine with a flashlight. Believe it or not though, it is in fact meant to be used with an LED. Basically you attach your LED flashlight to the open end of this cone, and when you turn the light on, it creates a “glowing orange high visibility wand.” There are a couple of different traffic wand tip diffusers, but this one is compatible with only the following Fenix series: PD30, LD20, LD10, P2D. (The other tip diffusers are compatible with these models: TA20, TA21, TA30 TK11, and the TK12.)

UCO Stakelight Tent Stake


There’s nothing more annoying than tripping over a tent stake in the middle of the night! They just seem to jump out at you when you’re making your way back to the tent after a midnight bathroom break. To prevent that from happening again and again, UCO has a way to help you out! These tent stakes are pretty great because they light up so you can clearly see those accidents waiting to happen. These beauties have a runtime of up to 10 hours on the continuous setting, but on the strobe setting, they can omit light for up to 24 hours.

You can buy these stake lights in a set of 4, or you can buy them individually. Rain is always a possibility when you’re camping, and these Stakelight Tent Stakes are extremely water resistant so you don’t have to worry about them breaking down in bad weather.

Flashlight Sheath


There are sheaths for knives, and yes, there are sheaths for flashlights too. Flashlight sheaths are great for when you want a decent-sized flashlight but you don’t want to have to hold it in your hands. From what I’ve found, flashlight sheaths are typically more convenient when they are used for smaller flashlights. If the sheath and flashlight are too big or long, it will make walking a challenge. Smaller sheaths and flashlights, on the other hand, are less constrictive and allow you to go on with your activities without being hindered.

Flashlights are a tool that I’d be willing to bet are in every home across America. You don’t even have to be an outdoorsman to have an interest in having a great flashlight. They can come in handy camping, in the event of a natural disaster, and even when you need to find the remote under the couch. These flashlight accessories can add an element of fun to your everyday flashlight. Check them out at Blade HQ.
