LEP flashlight only available at Alibaba
You don’t need to check AliExpress, Amazon, or any other major retail websites, because no platform has this brand for sale, except Alibaba. And that’s probably the main ‘problem’ with this brand and flashlight.
The iTarlights WL30 comes in a zippered case filled with microcell foam. It also includes quite a few accessories, including a 5,000mAh battery, manual, lanyard, charging cable, pocket clip, and split ring.
Switching works with a side e-switch. The switch has aux LEDs under the rubber boot to show the charging state.
iTarlights are pretty nicely made, solid lights for a good price. It’s nothing special, but it is a step above the cheapest LEP out there Natfire SF2. Except for the outer lens, because it was very dirty upon arrival.
Use, batteries, and more
The user interface is simple with 3 main modes and a strobe mode. It always starts in High mode, and with single clicks go from High to Low. A double click activates strobe.
The WL30 comes with a single 21700 battery with a 5,000mAh capacity. You don’t need to remove it for charging because it has onboard charging via a USB-C cable, which is also included. So you get a read-to-go package.
I don’t personally own this flashlight, so I copied most information from my fellow reviewer at 1Lumen, Nick.
Here’s what he measured:
|Mode||Specs||Lumens @turn on||after 30 sec||after 10 minutes|
|High||380||245 lumens||241 lumens||220|
But lumens aren’t the most important, and for LEPs it’s too big of a deal to not reach the claimed output. But the beam distance is the most important.
Here’s what the candeala measurements did:
|High||>200,000 cd||502,900 cd||1,418 meters||1,620|
The specifications were very vague, and incorrect. As you can see, the throw measurements for High mode were pretty high!
