Our friends stateside often refer to a phenomenon known as the "EDC". It refers to the things that reside in the pocket on a daily basis, things like car keys, mobile phone, wallet and it stands for "Every Day Carry". Of course a powerful flashlight deserves to be an "EDC" but the prohibitive size and somewhat exotic need for large rechargeable batteries normally hinder their adoption as a comfortable "EDC" and leave them relegated to the desk drawer or glove box.
Today I want to look at a light that's small enough to earn a place in your EDC inventory, that takes standard AA batteries and that allows the flexibility of running from either one battery or, with a slight gain in brightness and bulk, a pair of them.
Balder is a relatively new company founded in 2009 and whose mission is, in their own words, "producing tactical flashlights, which are designed for multi-purpose especially for law enforcement, military missions, outdoor sport, rescue, camping, hunting and personal safety, etc.".
