It's fine for dog walking, probably slightly overpriced at £45 but generally fine.
Build quality is average, beam focus is a good happy medium without zoom, unnecessarily bulky for output (much more powerful torches available with much less bulky design). USB charging and battery included is good.
May have given 4 stars if option to buy with on / off only button without multiple modes.
If you've never owned a modern LED torch before I've no doubt this one wil seem amazing but it is nothing more than fine. Not bad enough to return and not good enough to buy again or recommend
Als die Lampe eintraf war ich doch sehr überrascht welche Lichtausbeute die Lampe abbilden kann. Sie steht meiner Lupine Wilma in nichts nach. Und die Wilma kostet das 10x. Auch die Leuchtfauer ist enorm. Preis/Leistung ist mehr als nur gut zu nennen. Ich liebe diese Lampe.
Was den Kundenservice von Anker angeht, ist dieser nicht zu schlagen. Jede meiner Anfragen wurde schnellstens beantwortet und immer zu meiner vollsten Zufriedenheit gelöst.
Der Kundenservice von Anker ist einfach nur sehr gut
I was right.
It's way OTT for walking a dog around a village or town. Residents and drivers will be p****d off with you if you use it on a street, it's too bright!
However, it's a really impressive flashlight. I tested it the other night on the edge of my village away from streetlights in near pitch darkness with some moonlight.
On the brightest mode at 200m+ you can make out objects clearly, if it's a human, a cow or an electricity pole etc. As rain clouds moved in and the air got more humid I had to hold it out away from my position to reduce reflected light just as fog lights on your car do as opposed to full beam headlights but it still gave me a clear view at 200m. This torch is at least as powerful as a single modern xenon or LED car headlight on full beam. It just doesn't have quite the spread of light you get with two headlights. But you don't need that as you're not driving.
It is not zoomable but the beam is very well designed, not super narrow at distance but also doesn't light up a wide area in the foreground. I didn't buy this for close in work and it's too bright for that anyway. Even on low brightness mode it's bright and the beam is narrow at close up distance, so not designed for walking the dog.
This would be ideal for use at sea, coastguard, mountain search and rescue etc. probably as a flashlight you would carry as a personal search light or back up to the lights you'd get issued with. Also possibly hunting although the beam may not be narrow enough at longer distances and there's no trigger switch available that I know of. Could be used for potholing cave and mine exploring but the beam may be a bit too narrow in short to medium distances especially if you want to use it for photography and light painting a chamber. You could use it on a bike with a handlebar adapter but as it's not really designed for that, there are two problems, it's not easy to switch quickly between high and low brightness if a car comes towards you because of the 5 mode switch in the tail cap and a crash could see you get a nasty injury as it digs into you as you go over the handlebars! Ouch!
However, there is another use for this. Home and personal security. This could just stand on your bedside table (it's very stable when standing on the lens end) and in the event of a break in it has two uses. On high power mode or strobe it will blind any burglar for probably long enough for you to get out (BE WARNED, this will probably cause eye damage if you shine it at people close up). You could also use it in self defence as it's quite heavy and is a good grip in the hand with the wide lens.
It's a bit unbalanced in the hand, it's lens end heavy. I found that if I held it underarm it wanted to tilt down and slip out of my hand over time so you have to grip it slightly tighter or use it overarm. If held overarm it balances on the bridge of my hand (btwn thumb and index finger) where the wider lens meets the shaft, the problem with holding it like that is my thumb isn't long enough to reach the on/off/mode switch in the tail. I usually take a large size in gloves so only people with very long thumbs or giant hands are likely to find perfection. The provided lanyard helps though.
It fits easily in a pocket but the wide heavy lens end means you can feel it and I think kept in a back pocket in you trousers (lens up) it could fall out if you're walking. Finding a suitable belt/rucksack holster may be difficult because of that wide lens.
It has waterproof o-rings but I haven't tested it's waterproofness. Charging involves unscrewing the waterproof end cap (which is tethered to the charging cap internally via an elastic cord, wierd but it stops you losing the end cap) to find another internal end cap or charging cap retaining the battery with a micro usb input and a charge light. A short micro usb cable is included along with the battery (Li-ion 26650 5000mah).
It has five modes, high, mid, low power, strobe and SOS (which both seem to use high power). You can scroll through each mode in that order by either momentary on by pressing halfway down on the switch and releasing or fully press and click and then repeat to scroll the modes. If left off for a few moments it will remember which mode you were in so when you switch on again it will be in the last mode used.
I have not tested how long the battery lasts on full power but after half an hour of use I didn't detect any reduction in brightness, a spare battery is easily obtainable and fairly cheap.
Construction is the usual high quality from Anker but I do have a concern about the aluminium threads long term, because one is inside another they're shallow and you need to be careful not to cross-thread them.
The only real gripe I have is why these flashlight manufacturers insist on having strobe and SOS mode switches. For most applications it's not needed and in practical use is just frustrating when you're trying to find the brightness level you want. I wish they would include an exta tail cap switch which is simply a two mode high and low switch or have it as an option when purchasing.
So overall it's an impressive flashlight for its size, weight and price. More for specialist use and TOO BRIGHT FOR WALKING THE DOG.
Did I mention that ;)
Not having to worry about batteries and being able to top off the battery (I'm hoping once a month) via a USB cable is fabulous. It was easy to complete the initial charge.
And who could not love 1300 lumens and the ability to signal SOS?
Should I need to revise this review downward, I will; but for right now, I could not be more pleased.
