flashing lights says...

One great feature of having a super bright flashing lights or torch is that it will give bright light using simple AA batteries. The Emergency light will also run longer on these batteries than the regular strobe light. The lumens or bright light of police light is at ninety lumens.A stress ball is a good tool to release stress.
