Acebeam K30 Energy rechargeable LED flashlight. 5200 lumen 400 metre torch. Smaller than a Red Bull! Reviews here.
Acebeam's all-new K30 delivers an unprecedented fistful of light from a torch the size of a small can of energy drink!
The latest and greatest Cree XHP70.2 emitter, fed by three super-Li-Ions, blasts a wide 5,200 lumen beam over 400 ANSI metres according to my lux-meter, giving a real-world throw of 128 metres! With such gobsmacking performance this tiny torch is ideal for security, adventure and emergencies.
The K30 will erupt for a couple of minutes at this "turbo" setting – more than enough time to sear the eyeballs of an intruder – but it will also deliver a blistering (and constant) 2,000 lumens for two hours and a rock-solid 1,300 lumens for four hours - just what you need for a lengthy power cut, an extended night-ride on your mountain bike or a hike through the bushveld.
The single-button interface provides intuitive one-handed operation with instant access to all the major functions – even from the "off" position! This includes the all-important "firefly mode" for moving around in the dark without spoiling your night-vision, the volcanic turbo, and a shockingly bright defensive strobe. The Energy even features a remaining-charge indicator so you aren't caught flat-footed in the bundu.
When you handle the K30 you can see how far torches have come, in form and function, over the past few years – it really is a gorgeous piece of industrial art, showcasing the very latest LED and batteries. But it's no ornament – it's built to take whatever you can dish out, being IPX8 waterproof (tested to 10 metres!), impact resistant, and supplied with a strong holster, lanyard, spare o-rings and 5-year warranty.
If you've been sitting on the fence, waiting for the ultimate torch for daily use, it's time to climb down – the K30 means daylight is always within your grasp.
