Up for review today I’ve got another flashlight from a company called Reyo and it’s really a kit and I even comes with a plastic padded carrying box so you can take everything with your easily. Reyo includes two 18650 batteries and a dual charger for you as well. The light is made of aluminum making it sturdy but it does have some issues. Read on to learn more…
Specifications and Features
The light is just slightly under 5.5 inches long but it can expand or focus the beam by sliding the front section in and out. The light expands up to just slightly over 6 inches. The light is made of an aluminum alloy and it has a fine knurling pattern on the shaft for grip. There is a wrist strap attached to the light for convenience. Overall the light seems well made and rugged.
The light can come apart at the front section to reveal the Cree XM-L T6 LED. The front crown does have a rather sharp jagged edge which can be used for self-defense if need be. The lens of the light is plastic and not glass. The tail end has the power switch which is a bright orange rubber covered button. The tail section screws off to reveal the battery compartment and inside is an adapter so you could use three AAA batteries for power if need be. The specs and description say this flashlight is waterproof but there are no rubber seals inside the front or back of the light so I can’t see how it’s waterproof at all honestly.
The light has five modes for high, medium, low, strobe and SOS which are activated by clicking the tail button.
I use a flashlight all the time, multiple times every day in fact when I take my dogs out at night and I used this one as well the same way and I found it’s very bright and does have a long throw distance but I do have to questions the claim of 1200 lumens brightness. I have a light I know is 1000 lumens and the Reyo light isn’t as bright, but it’s still very bright.
The price of this kit is under $20 and for that this isn’t bad at all in my opinion, it would be great to toss in your car or backpack to take with you just in case of emergency.
The light isn’t 1200 lumens but it’s still very bright, more than bright enough to light the way on the darkest night.
The included carrying box is a nice addition but it’s not very sturdy at all, it would be fine as a storage box, but it doesn’t seal to keep water or anything out.
The specs claim the light to be waterproof but I can’t see how as there are no rubber seals to keep the water out. The light is well made though, it seems sturdy, I would just avoid water or you can add some rubber o-ring seals yourself which is what I plan to do.
