Products must pass a battery of rigorous tests conducted by safety agencies before getting a stamp of approval. When you’re in a potentially hazardous environment, using a flashlight that carries these approvals is vital.

We feel that designing a flashlight that’s safe to use in volatile situations should not be a feature. It’s fundamental. That’s why Pelican lighting tools are the most safety approved flashlights on the market.

Innovations like our battery polarity tray makes operating a flashlight impossible if one or more cells are inverted. This also safeguards against dangerous "outgassing" of hydrogen from an accidentally reversed cell. Another industry first is the addition of gas-absorbing pellets to our lamp modules. It is a back-up system that absorbs excess hydrogen retained inside the flashlight. No gas, no spark.
