First Look :
Flashlight in it’s box , a “classy” box :
Package Contains :
- Holster/Protective case
- User manual
- 2x O-rings
- Pocket Clip
- Micro-usb cable
A closer look :
So , here is the light itself Nice design ! :
Flashlight in hand . Slightly bigger than other similar 18650 flashlights :
It has a “high grade” anodization , pretty nice and durable …
Really nice to see something different than normal knurling :
Flashlight has a SMO reflector that works nice with the xp-l and AR coated lens :
Check out the nicely centered xp-l hd v6 too :
The blue reflection is the AR coating
It changes modes through the e-switch (and tailcap switch works as an on/off switch) :
Below the switch , the USB charging port , “hidden” under it’s nice cover :
Notice also the cooling fins on the head, one of it’s kind !
So , if you unscrew that ring , the usb port and a little led are revealed :
Logo on the head along with a “hot” warning :
Tail switch , for on/off function :
Did you notice the emergency glass breaker ?
Tailcap has a smart design for grip :
And here is the switch assembly with the little Omten switch :
Nice , “square” & anodized threads :
There is space for even long protected batteries… Here is a test with an unprotected 18650 :
Flashlight’s Holster/Protective case :
Inside the package , you can find a nice protective case for the flashlight, that it can be used as a holster too , and the flashlight fits very nice! :
How it works (&modes) :
Flashlight uses the switch at the tailcap for on/off function . E-switch navigates easilly through modes , with a short press (Ultra Low - Low - Medium - High (referred as turbo) - Flare) .
It takes a double click of the side switch to get into Flare (“turbo” mode), and it won’t stay in the memory if you turn it off but the main 4 modes will .
Usb Charging :
When you plug the Micro-USB charge cable into the power adapter , LED indicator will flash red and green over and over again. It means that you need to click the tail switch to allow the charger to work.
After that , when the battery :
- is being charged , RED led will be on .
- is fully charged, Green Led will be on.
Charging Current : 700 mA

My runtime test :
Flare mode :
The flashlight at Flare mode , after the first 30 seconds that light is running at about 1200 lumens , is running pretty stable at about 60% (650-750 lumens) of the total output for about 100 minutes …
Wall @ 12m :
Flare (a bit over-exposed unfortunately) :
A great light , or a great all-in-one solution if i could describe it in other words , with over 1200 lumens ,and as a bonus an intergrated charger . It has an innovative design , including a smart cover for the charging port that only a few lights have . SMO reflector along with the domed emitter gives a nice throwy beam , with a big hotspot .
I think detailed info can be found in my detailed review , but be sure to comment if i missed something
Comment if you want me to check something on the flashlight , or tell your opinion . Thanks !
