Surefire’s new Sidekick key ring light looks really handy.

It’s got a 300-lumen beam as well as a 60 and a 5-lumen setting.

“The rechargeable Sidekick was designed to attach to keys so it’s always available and, most importantly, ready for everyday use and emergencies,” according to a recent Surefire press release. “Its wide, smooth 300-lumen MaxVision Beam illuminates all dark areas at night, providing peace-of-mind navigation with a useful range well past 50 meters.”

The Sidekick is easily rechargeable via its micro-USB port using a vehicle or wall charger.

An easy click-type switch permits access to all 3 output levels with repeated presses. It will run 1.25 hours on the 300-lumen setting, 4 hours on the 60-lumen setting and 45 hours on the 5-lumen setting.

The Sidekick retails for $80.
