This flashlight is water resistant and not waterproof. That being said, we do not recommend dropping this flashlight in water. It is fine with being used in the rain.

This tactical flashlight is capable of operating standing up on a flat surface to serve as an emergency candle.

There is a variable focus / adjustable zoom on the bezel to either spread or focus the beam depending on what you want illuminated.

The flashlight has a push button on the tail:

  • Lightly press the button once to change brightness
  • Lightly press twice to switch to strobe and SOS modes

A firm click of the button turns the flashlight on and off.

It is also compatible wth 3 Triple AAA batteries.

With the charger, it takes about 4 hours to full recharge the battery. The package comes with a plastic tube / jacket so that the included battery fits well in the casing.

The body is made up of a rugged aluminum construction: 6061T alloy. It’s very durable and can resist being dropped several times; perfect for camping and hiking. However, it has a plastic lens so it would be best not to drop it on its head.
