First Light TORQ Flashlight: Most Unique Flashlight I Have Ever Tested – Multiple Colors, Ergonomic

  1. It is interesting looking when it comes to ergonomics and I like the idea of the movable head, I would however want to see it slightly larger so that you can use two 18650 batteries and the max output increase you mentioned.

    The manual found on their website does specify on page 9 that it has a low battery indication, could be nice to include those things in the video (test how much useful light runtime is left after the indicator turns on, with both alkalines and NiMH for example?). Personally I prefer a way to get a fairly accurate readout of the battery state of charge, harder with alkaline and NiMH but if they did switch to lithium ion it’s much easier since there’s a direct correlation between open cell voltage and state of charge.

    With regards to the “1m waterproof” listing on their website a bit more explanation like the relevant ingress protection it is tested and certified for would be nice. I could see moving parts like the head making significant waterproofing difficult, still I would like to know to what degree it is tested and certified. Water proofing and internally charging batteries is a thing that doesn’t always work well together, so to keep things simple and reliable I think skipping that but including a good easy indicator option of how much capacity is left in the batteries would be a good middle ground.

  2. I LIKE IT…BUT, possibly good light for on the boat. needs 18650!! They are all over Amazon and Ebay. Also needs the USB recharge…..”keep up with others if ya want to play in this market.” the double A’s kill this for me. MO’ POWER! needed. or get off the porch

    1. AA and AAA have their place still in my opinion but only for compact 1xAA or twisty 1xAAA type models. I wouldn’t want to see an AA model being much larger than for example a Zebralight sc53 form factor. In a design like the subject of the video my preference would be to make it large enough to fit two 18650 batteries.

      reference page for mentioned Zebralight torch:

  3. I think going to an 18650 would make sense to inprove the run time. Also, the switch-interface seems so unconventional as to be confusing.
    BUT- the design of the ‘light with a grip, and a swivel head’ I do like.
    90 degree lights make a lot of sense, and the red, blue and green modes are certainly desirable.
    A good start, but needs some work
