The Klarus XT30R Rechargeable LED Flashlight was designed with two purposes in mind: hunting and searching. The handheld searchlight is equipped with a super-bright CREE XHP-35 HI D4 LED and is capable of throwing a beam up to 820 meters. That’s 2,690 feet or half a mile away! The Klarus XT30R flashlight is therefore a great tool for identifying items far off in the distance, such as while on a search-and-rescue mission. This ultra-bright flashlight also offers a maximum output of 1800 lumens, as well as three additional outputs to accommodate any illuminating needs. This Klarus XT30R search light also functions as a hunting tool, due to its programmable setup. In fact, the Klarus XT30R offers two preset modes that cater to the individual task at hand.

First Look :
Flashlight in it’s box , a small box compared to the size of the flashlight :
Package Contains :
- User manual
- USB charging cable
- 2x O-rings
At this point i should remind you that xt30r has an intergrated battery pack .
A closer look :
“Front” side with e-switch :
Flashlight is perfectly balanced , has a nice grip and it feels lightweight .
And the other side with the charging port and the Klarus logo :
The head of the flashlight has an interesting design with lots of cooling fins in various sizes :
You can notice the battery indicator at the center of the e-switch too .
Max. head diameter : ~58mm
Bezel has a small “hot” logo too :
Flashlight has an XHP35 HI D4 , a deep SMO reflector and AR coated lens :
Reflector diameter : 50mm
Charging port close-up :
A closer look at the body , with a not-so-aggressive knurling :
It has a tactical ring at the end of the battery carrier , just before the tailcap :
Tailcap with the 2 switches system :
Round switch is a regular forward clicky switch , and the other switch is a momentary (reffered as tailcap’s momentary , later in the review) .
The magnetic USB cable :
And connected to the flashlight :
Charging system works great , when tested with a 2,5 amp charger , it draw around 1,6 amps and battery was full in about 3 hours 10 mins .
Kind-of teardown :
If you unscrew the battery tube , you can see the driver with it’s contact springs :
The other part that it connects to (head side) :
Non anodized threads for good contact , but still smooth :
The other end (tailcap side) :
And inside the tailcap :
Flashlight’s Holster :
Holster is designed for xt30r , fits very nice! I really like when companies give a high quality holster . :
It can be attached with 2 ways on the belt etc :
How it works (&modes) :
Flashlight has 4 basic modes : Low , Medium , High , Turbo + hidden Strobe/SOS modes
Here are two pages from the manual describing every little detail :
Basically every switch turns the light on .
Side switch turns the light everytime on the last used mode . Further click changes mode in descending order (turbo-high-mid-low) , double click enters strobe , and longer single click (1-1.5s) turns the light off . Tailcap’s e-switch (momentary switch) changes modes in ascending order .
Forward clicky switch in the tailcap turns on flashlight every time at turbo , even if flashlight is already turned ON . If flashlight has been opened with the clicky switch , side switch works as before (change modes in descending order) , and tailcap’s e-switch changes modes in ascending order .
Tailcap’s momentary switch gives low mode momentary if pressed for < 3s , and low mode stays ON if pressed longer . And now flashlight works again as before : side switch changes modes in descending order , and tailcap’s e-switch changes modes in ascending order . Long press (> 1.5s) of side switch or tailcap’s e-switch turns the light off .
Battery Indicator :
After power on , the indicator will will show battery status for 5 seconds :
Green : >70% capacity remaining
Orange : >30% capacity remaining
Red : <30% capacity remaining
Red (flashing) : <10% capacity remaining , you must recharge it immidiately
Flashlght has a 3400mAh battery pack , of 2 batteries in series resulting in 8.4V when fully charged .
Lumens , 30 seconds after turn on :
- Low - 23 lumens
- Medium - 130 lumens
- High - 470,5 lumens
- Turbo - 1819 lumens
My runtime test :
Here is runtime at turbo , as you see it regulates output based on the temperature . It continues this way for about 1h 45m. Room temp was 20°C .
Test with cooling is coming .
XT30R : 154,5kcd
Here you can see the beam profile , pretty clean : photo
And a beamshot , road end with cones is at 90m :
Control shot :
A high quality and lightweight flashlight . Xhp35 makes it very bright and throw wells , but as seen in the “uncooled” diagram heat makes it stepdown to keep temperature low . to be updated
Comment if you want me to check something on the flashlight , or tell your opinion . Thanks !
