This Mini LED Glowstick is a compact yet powerful source of illumination, perfect for safety or for fun. An excellent alternative to traditional chemical glowsticks and available in multiple LED colors, the Glowstick has a sleek design and a simple twist on/off function. It also features batteries that last over 60 hours and can be easily replaced. Waterproof and equipped with an S-Biner for clippability, these colorful Glowsticks are perfect to keep in your car or home emergency kit, or simply to have on hand for hours of nighttime visibility and safety. As an added bonus - they float!

Red 3 in 1 LED Mini Flashlight

NL1A_Feature_00_n

Remember: good things come in small packages. The 3-in-1 LED Mini Flashlight may fit easily into your pocket, but don't be deceived by its size. This fully featured mini flashlight can illuminate the night as a flashlight, lantern, or safety light. The ultra bright, 80 Lumen flashlight has high and low modes both as a flashlight, and when converted into its lantern mode with a simple sliding motion. The tail end of the light features a red safety light with its own switch to set it to glow, flash, or SOS modes. The compact size, durable machined aluminum body, and convenient lanyard loop on the tail will make this a new favorite for your glove box, emergency kit, or next family camping trip.

GQotDPinterestHey Cachers! This is Lookout Lisa from Cache Advance, and I’m your host for the Geocaching Question of the Day.

Cache Advance is your geocaching hub for all of your caching needs, including the Cache Crate, a monthly subscription box of geocaching and outdoor gear.

Monday through Thursdays, we ask our followers on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ a question about geocaching.

We recently asked: What is your on your geocaching wish list?

We just published a blog with our top 10 geocaching gifts, so it was really fun to read through everyone’s wish lists. I am going to do a top 4 list for you, based on everyone’s responses:

  • #4 on this list was gear and gadgets to help with geocaching
    • Mike on FB shared: Just got a kayak on black friday, hoping to get an action video camera like a gopro for better quality YouTube videos.
    • Mark shared: Ammo cans and good rain pants for caching in western Washington.
  • #3 on the list is Geocoins.
    • Tony shared: I have a list of geocoins I'm hoping to get.
  • #2 on the list is a Cache Crate Subscription!
    • Josh shared: Cache crate with the added Trackable option would be great as well! I watch the unboxing videos by the GCDoc. Very cool stuff! --Well thanks Josh!
  • And #1 on geocachers wish list is: More time to geocache
    • RJ on Twitter shared: more money and time off to go caching.
    • Darryl shared: More time off work so we can travel and cache more.

While we at Cache Advance probably can’t help you with more time off to go caching, we can surely help you be prepared with all the gear, Geocoins and Cache Crates, so you’re prepped and ready to go when you do find time to caching! And be sure to check out our blog for more gift ideas.

As always we really enjoyed hearing about geocaching wish lists, and you can too, if you-
