Calling the Klarus XT30 a torch seems an understatement. Portable spotlight would be a more fitting description for this high-powered, military-spec torch, which can throw a focused beam 400 metres. The secret behind this blinding performance is its single Cree XM-L U2 LED (a whopping 820 ANSI lumens output) and specially designed deep parabolic reflector, which produces a perfect beam profile.
Made out of aircraft-grade aluminium and featuring toughened ultra-clear glass, it’s waterproof down to two metres. There are three lighting modes: 820 lumens (2-hour burn time), 150 lumens (13,4 hours) and 10 lumens (208 hours). The seriously intimidating variable frequency strobe pushes out 820 lumens. A dual button tail switch allows quick, one-hand operation; the XT30 can be gun-mounted, too. Price: about R1 600. Contact Klarus SA on 071 613 6777 or visit www.klaruslight.co.za
