Magic is just a wavelength away

"Little did I think 5 years ago that thousands of people across the world would be using Yooperlites Flashlights to find rocks & minerals and more, let alone along the Great Lakes!

It amazes me to hear about what folks are discovering in their own backyards with Yooperlites Flashlights.

That moment when you discover something new that lights up? It's what I live for.

I hope you too can discover magic in your own backyard!"

1. Great Lakes Tested

Before the Yooperlites Hunter made it on the website, Erik put the Convoy C8 thru the wringer. It's been accidentally dropped, thrown in backpacks, left on for too long, and most importantly, tested at night along the Great Lakes to find Yooperlites. Needless to say, it's ready for you and your adventures!

2. Yooperlites Simple Guarantee

We know you'll love using the Yooperlites C8 for all sorts of adventures. Know that if you have issues with your Convoy C8, we're here to support you! Each official Yooperlites C8 comes with a lifetime warranty. Having a problem? We'll swap it out for you - no problems!

For a clean future

Lake Superior is such a meaningful, clean place. I take care to try to leave the beach better than I found it.

I hope you show as much care for the land as I do. We can all play a part!

You'll find all sorts of things with the C8 flashlight other than Yooperlites. I hope if you find waste or garbage, you'll do the right thing and make the beaches a little cleaner.

The Great Lakes really are Great. As stewards of this land, let's keep it them Great!
