I received an Odepro KL41 from Odepro Outdoors for review. They have a presence here on Blf for just over a year and have just set up a new Amazon store in the UK and will be fleshing out their Amazon UK store with more flashlights in the future.
The flashlight arrived in a fairly large box , well protected from any potential trips or falls that the delivery guy may have had in his haste to deliver a man’s new toy(you know how it is, I’m sure it’s not just me that waits impatiently to get their hands on something new).
The flashlight comes with qty 2 18650 button top protected batteries, marked as 3000mah capacity, a lanyard, 2 spare o rings and a 2 bay charger.
The wrap is slightly kinked on both batteries but doesn’t affect battery insertion.
Dimensions are approximately 178mm long with a head diameter of 48.5mm.
The driver is press fit into the pill and the tail cap connection to the battery is a sprung brass pillar.
AR coated glass, a deep aluminium reflector and an Xml2 U4 make up the head of the flashlight. The Mcpb is screwed down with 2 screws with a good amount of thermal paste. The mcpb looks to be copper but I haven’t removed it to see. I will remove if anyone is interested.
The shelf which the mcpb is screwed to is quite thick with a good 4 or 5mm of meat left on to help sink and remove the heat from the emitter.
The smooth aluminium reflector is a thing of beauty. It is just shy of 58mm long, just under 43mm wide at its widest point with an inside diameter of 38mm.
Listed at 1000 lumens with 400 yards of throw, I was unable to test as it’s raining and I do not have a integrating sphere.
However, the tail cap currents using stock leads on my dmm
Using the supplied batteries,
Low,med,high,strobe,SOS are the included modes with a forward clicky.
In the hand, it weighs about the same as my Blf X6 triple with copper spacer so it’s built well.
In conclusion, a nice flashlight from Odepro outdoors. It is a shame that the driver isn’t easily removable for those who like to tinker but it’s good as it is.
I personally would like the flashy modes hidden but it is sold as a tactical flashlight.
