This flashlight is more versatile than I expected. The 1 lumen firefly mode is great to see on such a large, powerful light. I feel the low at 280 lumens and the medium mode at 1000 lumens are the sweet spots for this light. I have other lights that will do 1000 lumens, but that is usually the turbo mode and only intended for a minute or two. The high mode of 2500 and the turbo of 6500 are truly impressive, but as to be expected, the body of the flashlight gets rather hot very quickly.
The 4 LEDs provide a great flood light with a nice, large hotspot. This isn’t designed to throw light a long distance, but the 6500 lumens work pretty well in a pinch. I wouldn’t EDC this light due to the size and weight, but you can carry it in your pocket or on your belt with the large, strong pocket clip and the included holster is great. The 6500 strobe (I like to call it party mode) is the most powerful I’ve seen and I would not want to be on the wrong end of that. It also has beacon mode (one flash every few seconds) and SOS mode which are bright enough to save you in an emergency.
My only negatives include how quickly the light gets very hot in turbo mode (but you have to expect that) and the proprietary barrel charger. USB-C charging would have made this an easy 5 star product. On a smaller note, I prefer the function of Olight flashlights, but that’s just personal preference. I’m just more used to them. Finally, I’d like to see a different method of exiting lockout mode. You just hold the main button down fully for a few seconds. This could happen accidentally far easier than having to press a pattern.
