Review of TruPath 2500 Lumens LED Flashlight Kit













trupath3
I have a thing for flashlights, I don’t know why really, I just like to collect them, I have all sorts of them, different shapes and sizes and of varying brightness. Today for review I’ve got a flashlight kit from a company called TruPath and in the kit you’ll find battery, flashlight, adapter, charger and even a sturdy padded carrying box. The flashlight itself is waterproof and very well made of aluminum so it should be able to stand most any conditions. The flashlight is rated for 2500 lumens but I highly doubt it’s that bright, my 1000 lumen one is brighter, but it’s still a bright light though, more than bright enough for any uses. Read on to learn more…

Specifications and Features

Once you get everything unpacked you’ll find the flashlight, charger, battery, and battery adapter.

The charger is pretty much like all the other chargers I’ve seen that come with LED flashlights, it’s spring loaded to hold the battery and the prongs fold in and out for storage and use.

The included battery is 2200mah in capacity which is fairly decent and should offer long run time. They do include a clear plastic adapter as well for you.

The flashlight is made of aluminum and it feels sturdy and well made. The light does have a wrist strap attached to it when you get it and the flashlight is supposedly waterproof, IP68 rated actually. IP68 means it’s dust proof and it can be submerged under up to 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. It’s safe to say you’ll be able to use the flashlight on a rainy day and not worry about it.

The flashlight is just under 5.5 inches long but the front extends in and out to focus the beam from flood to spot and when extended the flashlight is 56 inches long.

The front comes off so you can clean the lens if need be and I’m happy to say there is a rubber gasket in the front to keep the weather out. The lens is plastic and not glass though.

On the back end is the button, just a push button, rubber covered and it clicks audibly. The flashlight has modes for high, medium and low along with strobe and SOS as well. When you remove the tail cap you’ll find another rubber gasket to keep water out and then inside of the flashlight is the three AAA battery adapter.

The charger has an LED on it that lights up red to indicate charging and then turns green to let you know it’s done. Charge time depends on how much you use the battery of course, it took a good 8 hours to charge for me the first time.

Conclusion

The TruPath LED flashlight kit isn’t bad especially if you consider the price, it’s only $14 right now on Amazon and I don’t think that’s too bad for the whole kit. It would make a nice gift for the outdoor type person or as a gift for emergency use to keep in the home or vehicle.

The storage box is a nice addition, you can just toss the whole thing in your car or bag and the flashlight will be safe.

The flashlight has rubber seals on both ends, which I’m happy to see as they will keep the water out. Lots of flashlights claim to be waterproof but after inspecting them you won’t find two seals, only one.

I really have to question the 2500 lumens claim on this flashlight, I have 1000 lumen flashlight and it’s much brighter than this one is.

Pros:
+Inexpensive
+Rubber seals on both ends to keep water out
+Includes AAA adapter
+Includes storage case

Cons:
-Not even close to 2500 lumens
