About this deal

If that sounds like you, then take a look at our next best LED torch review: – the Anker LC90 model. Before I get going here’s a good unboxing. The guys slow and the clip starts best where I’ve put you. Also, might want to turn your volume down 😀 : I could have better understood the location of the charging port if its placement allowed Anker to make the flashlight submersible. Since it is not, I can’t really fathom how its placement makes a lot of sense for the end user. Testing Klarus XT11X 3200 Lumens Rechargeable Torch, 283M Beam Distance Tactical Torch most powerful LED torch for tactical use If Anker reduced the time between activations from 2 seconds to less than 0.5 seconds, it would likely avoid this problem entirely. The flashlights manufactured by Streamlight manages this very well in my experience.

Make sure you always fully charge your battery before the first use. Once that’s done, you want to allow it to run down as low as possible without actually completely draining. There’s an art to it, but once you’re familiar with your own flashlight it becomes second nature. Every review you read should disclose any potential biases that might reasonably influence the results. While most writers do not, I do. To activate the light, you can half-press the switch for a momentary activation. You can also fully depress the switch to get a constant-on activation. The light is cool in temperature and on high is very bright, more than adequate on medium and not much of a reduction in low mode.The light source of this flashlight is not replaceable; when the light source reaches the end of its life, the whole flashlight needs to be replaced. Do not stare directly into the beam or shine it directly into anyone's face. Doing so for more than a few seconds could cause retinal damage. We’d choose a functional and very bright flashlight over a flashlight with all the bells and whistles, but a low lumen count.

One feature which I think most of us will appreciate these days is the ability to use this LED torch as a power bank and charge up your mobile phone while you’re out in the great outdoors. Let me be perfectly clear: I do not recommend the LC90 for any kind of tactical, self-defense, law enforcement or military use.The problem with the charging system is that you have to disassemble the rear of the flashlight to access the charging port. This means that you cannot keep the Anker flashlight on the charger and have it instantly ready for an emergency. When not using the flashlight for long periods of time, please remove the battery and store in a cool, dry place. Anker is not a sponsor, nor am I in any talks with them to be one. I have no financial interests in any flashlight manufacturer. Having to remove the end cap to charge is pretty annoying for me as it means this cant be left on charge and used as a grab it and go emergency light.
