Branded flashlights are popular promotional giveaways because they offer durability, usefulness, and a variety of sizes and price points. We’ve expanded, and improved, our light-up product category with the addition of chip-on-board (COB) lighting.

COB technology is a form of LED grouping and bonding that produces brighter light from a smaller space. In simpler terms, COB lights bring together nine or more LED chips, creating a single powerful light instead of multiple smaller lights.

They offer other advantages, including:

  • Compact design
  • Lower rates of failure
  • Higher light efficiency
  • More options for product design

In other words, these flashlight gifts come in a variety of designs that use less power but create more light.

Those are the advantages of COB technology. When you hand out a useful giveaway, like a branded flashlight, there are benefits for your brand too. For instance, the longer a promotional product is kept, the more impressions your marketing message makes. Nearly 60% of consumers who own promotional products keep them for more than five years (PDF). These COB flashlights are the perfect example of a lasting item with a long shelf life to keep your brand within reach and top of mind. Just pick the item that your customers will find the most memorable and these flashlights are sure to shine a light on your brand for years to come.
