The NiteCore SRT7 is a top-of-the-range midsize tactical light. It features the newest CREE XML2 LED and kicks out a staggering 960 lumens! With an estimated beam distance of 308m and using a 2600mAh battery, it can operate at it’s brightest for a total of 105 minutes, and close to 200 hours at its dimmest. What makes this light truly special is the red, green and blue signaling LEDs incorporated in the reflector, and the smart selector ring technology that allows you to vary the brightness from a mere 1 lumen all the way to 960 lumens, or anywhere in between. If you’re willing to throw a couple of bucks around, this is one light to have.

The LotusGrill is a compact and easy to use portable braai that is ideal for camping, on the beach, on boats or at picnics. The LotusGrill operates with a battery-operated fan which constantly supplies the charcoal with air, ensuring hot, ready-to-use coals within four to five minutes. It’s double-layered construction means it keeps heat in the inside of the bowl, ensuring it can be touched, moved or even carried around during use because the outer bowl never gets hot. The stylish and safe LotusGrill means that you can have the perfect braai experience without all the fuss and mess of dealing with gas bottles or bags of heavy charcoal.
