Here’s a twist on your everyday LED flashlights: a right-angled light whose head articulates 45-plus degrees in either direction. You can let this poke out of your pocket like Kilroy’s nose. It certainly follows the military style of right-angled flashlights, although this is the modern LED version and much smaller. It can be clipped to your belt or chest strap or hung from a carabiner. Testers liked the right angle grip to just grab and go. We set it vertically on a horizontal surface thanks to it’s flat bottom and we could easily tilt the head to illuminate the table in front or we could angle it back like a bounce strobe. Same thing when we hung it from the tent stays via it’s hanger.
We could angle it anywhere in the tent. And with the diffuser on the lens, it made the perfect reading lamp at the medium setting. A single AA battery provides three levels of brightness: an eye-burning 87 lumens, a moderate 39 lumens and a moonlight 3 lumens, all accessible from the rubber button on the top.
We ran it for just under 2 hours at the high setting. We understand that the medium setting has a 6 hour plus runtime and at lowest setting it will run for up to 53 hours. Fenix suggest using rechargeables, as we do, but this unit is quite happy with Alkaline or Lithium batteries. Measures just under 4 inches long and just over 3/4″ diameter and just under 2 ounces. Comes with a pocket clip, a lanyard, a hanger and diffusion screen.
