The new JETBeam RRT-3 is a true monster of a light. Instead of the single SST-50 that the old version used, this new version uses triple CREE XM-L LEDs to pump out a blistering 1950 lumens. The ideal power source for the RRT-3 is three 18650 rechargeable lithium batteries. The 18650 cell will offer the highest output and the longest run time when compared with the CR123 primaries that most lights use. Operation of the RRT-3 is made simple with the use of a rotary switch paired with a tail cap clicky. The clicky turns the light on, and the rotary ring adjusts the output – it’s really that easy. Check the video below out to get a feel for just how insane this light really is.
When you need to turn night into day, the choices don’t get much better than the RRT-3.
The Klarus XT20 is a tactical light with mega output. The XT20 differs from a lot of tac lights in that it has two whole heads built into the same bezel. Having two heads means that it has two different LEDs set into two different reflectors. This set up allows the XT20 to have ridiculous output with a very unique beam pattern. The hot spot is wider than most, while still being extremely intense. The XT20 uses two CREE XM-L LEDs to pump out 1200 lumens of light on high. Having that much output makes this torch perfect for search and rescue, or just as a general duty light. The XT20 also features Klarus’s dual switch system which has become very popular due to its ease of use.
With its phallic shape and crazy output, this is one powerful light!
We took a cool light and made it even cooler with the addition of some color. The EagleTac T20C2 is no longer only available in boring black. We have more than a few colors to choose from, so there should be something for just about everyone. The coating is durable and very scratch resistant, so you don’t have to worry about treating the light like its made of glass. Let’s face it, in the flashlight world we see a sea of black. The addition of some color makes these lights stand out from the crowd. We still have a few different colors in stock as of right now, but who knows how long they will last.
When someone asks for an affordable, high output light the JETBeam BC40 is the one that I mention almost every time. The performance is amazing at its very modest price, which is well under 100 dollars.
Using a CREE XM-L and 4 CR123 batteries the BC40 can spit out 830 lumens on the max brightness setting. Performance like that is mostly only seen in high dollar lights which are 4 to 5 times the cost of the BC40. The version in the video uses a warm tint LED which will represent colors with higher fidelity. The warmer tint means that greens and browns will still be green and brown, without having a blue tint cast over them.
With output that high and a price that low, there is a reason the BC40 is one of our most popular lights. If you’re in the market for a mega torch that won’t break the bank, then look no further than the BC40. Seriously, it’s that good.
The Surefire UB3T Invictus is one of those lights that leaves you with a smile on your face. From the super high build quality to the blistering output, there is literally nothing else like this on the market today. Using three CR123 lithium batteries the UB3T is able to spit out 800 lumens on the max brightness setting. Thanks to Surefire’s TIR (total internal reflection) lens those 800 lumens are concentrated into a nice clean and tight beam which throws way past 100 yards. At distances 100 yards and closer the UB3T has almost too much output.
A torch like this doesn’t come around often, so I imagine this will be Surefire’s flagship for at least a few years. It’s hard to explain just how well this light performs, so luckily we included a video below for your viewing pleasure!
The Maelstrom X10 is virtually the same light as 4Seven’s popular S12, but with one major change. The X10 features the new CREE XM-L LED while the S12 uses a Luminous SST-90.
The smaller XM-L LED of the X10 will give it the edge in throw compared to it’s brother, the S12. While the S12 does put out more light overall, the X10 will appear to be brighter at distance due to the increased throw. The X10 uses a single rechargeable 26650 battery to push the XM-L LED all the way to 640 blinding lumens. While there are plenty of lights with comparable output, they don’t even compare in size to the X10. The X10 is one of the smallest and brightest lights to ever come through our store. Getting that much output out of a torch this small is definitely an accomplishment.
If you need something small that will light up the whole world around you, then the Maelstrom X10 is definitely the light you are looking for.
The M20-X and M21-X are essentially two of Olight’s most popular lights, with an upgrade to the new CREE XM-L LED.
The M20 and M21 have proven themselves to be amazing lights. The new upgraded LED makes an already great light even better. The XM-L LED allows both lights to have more output while also being more efficient. Not only will both lights be brighter than the previous versions, they will also run longer. The user interface is essentially the same as the previous versions but there have been improvements. Both lights still use the dual button system which has become widely popular in this class of lights.
The M20 and M21 are the epitome of the tactical light. Both will work well as a duty light, weapon light, or just an every day companion.
The Olight i2 and i3 are essentially the same light. The main difference between the two is the power source. The i2 is powered by one AA battery, and the i3 is powered by one AAA battery. Both lights have roughly the same output being only 5 lumens apart. The i2 maxes out at 75 lumens, and the i3 tops out at 70 lumens. The larger reflector of the i2 will give it more throw than its smaller counterpart, the i3. Both lights have enough power to illuminate objects at 100 feet out, which is amazing considering the size of these torches. With power like this available in keychain size there is no excuse not to carry a nice EDC light. Having bigger flashlights on you is great, but having something like the i2 or i3 on you at all times is pretty much invaluable.
The RRT-21 is JETBeam’s new super pocket light. Most of JETBeam’s lights are very bright for their size, but the RRT-21 is on another level.
Using a CREE XM-L LED and two CR123 lithium batteries, the RRT-21 spits out 460 lumens on high. That is enough power to do pretty much anything that you would need this light to do. Since the XM-L LED is larger than the previous XP-G LED, the hot spot will be a little bigger on this version of the RRT-21. The wider hot spot and higher output of the RRT-21 makes for a larger over all volume of light. This increase in volume allows the RRT-21 to light up a larger area at once than previous versions with the smaller LED. Having more of a floody beam is very useful in EDC tasks since you don’t get the tunnel vision effect that comes along with a lot of other lights.
JETBeam puts out some of the highest quality and most unique lights available today. The XM-L LED combined with JETBeam’s rotary system makes the RRT-21 an instant favorite.
I love writing about fun items, and the Fenix TK70 definitely qualifies as a fun item!
In the flashlight world almost all of the super high output lights are powered by some form of lithium battery. The TK70 bucks that trend by utilizing the ubiquitous D cell battery. Using a D battery makes the TK70 super convenient for the regular Joe that wants to play around with a light brighter than anything he’s seen previously. The D battery is much easier to find and a lot cheaper than its lithium counterpart. Thanks to the D cell, battery changes are safe, quick, and most of all inexpensive. Rechargeable NiMH batteries are definitely recommended, although regular alkaline cells will work.
The TK70 tops out at 220 lumens, so it is definitely brighter than anything else in its class. The poor Mag lite doesn’t stand a chance!
