Pierces the night with ease. They look different and they behave differently. Our goal was simple. We wanted you to have the brightest flashlights of their size.

It’s a difficult balance designing an everyday carry (EDC) flashlight that’s blindingly bright, in such a small package, tough as a tank and feels good in the hands.

SOG achieved this masterfully with the smallest version of their Dark Energy Flashlights($), the 214A.

It’s about as small as a legitimate tactical flashlight can and should be. Despite it’s miniature stature, it pumps out a staggering 188 lumens (brightness) through an optical-grade polycarbonate lens – not the brightest by any means but impressive for a sub 4 inch flashlight.

All this radiant power and it can disappear in the palm of your hands, feeling extraordinarally solid with just the right hefty weight and ever-confident grip.

The T6 aluminum body is anodized in matte black with aggressive bi-level knurling that will ensure your grasp whether your hands are covered in grease or blood.

As the button is on the tail as a rubberized switch, it’s natural and convenient to activate and cycle through the 4 operational modes with the thumb: momentary touch, full power, half power and strobe.

With the overtexturing of the rock solid housing, reverse grip handling and a bezel designed for striking, this SOG flashlight earns its tactical status.

I’ve been using Dark Energy flashlights since they first introduced them nearly 5 years ago.

This specific model is my second, but only because I gave the first one to someone who needed it more than I.

That being said, these SOG Dark Energy flashlights are built to last and illuminate for a lifetime or maybe a couple of wars.

The 214A retails for $105 but they’re available for as low as $45. Regardless, this is very likely the best designed and the most value you can find in a flashlight of this size for either of those prices.

So whether for survival, tactical or everyday practical, this is a prime choice for a compact flashlight.

I have and will be using the SOG Dark Energy for vagabonding lifestyle and everyday carry.
