Nextorch T10L white laser flashlight reaching 1.1 km
After owning and reviewing some Nextorch flashlights I came to the conclusion that the brand is not as popular as it should be. Not many people in the flashlight community talk about Nextorch flashlights, and that is a shame.
Some people say the T10L looks like an upgraded Nextorch T7L with a few new features, but in reality, it’s much more than that. During my review of the T10L I came to the conclusion that they are totally wrong.
It now uses a 21700 battery so it can produce more energy for a longer period of time. They even include a 5000mAh lithium-ion battery with it. The battery itself can be charged via a USB-C cable, but charges at a rate of 1.3 Amps.
The mode many has also changed and instead of the 2 output modes, the new T10L has 3 output modes + direct access to strobe. It is actually quite interesting to see they now include a magnetic dial ring as a switch. Simply twist the dial to select your preferred output mode: Low, Medium, High, and Strobe. You don’t need to press the switch for that.
When you set the output mode to Low, you still can use the switch to half-press for instant High, and a full-press for Strobe. So in any mode, you can quickly activate High momentarily. This is a very interesting feature!
This is Nextorch’s second LEP flashlight. It has the typical characteristics of the Nextorch line-up flashlights. The strike bezel, the type of knurling, and the design of the head. No, this is not a copy of any other brand, and that’s another reason why I don’t know why it’s not so popular amongst the flashoholics.
The max output is claimed to be 500 lumens and I don’t have to doubt it can do that. The older T7L was already able to almost hit the 500 lumens. Specs can be a bit deceiving, so I hope I can get my hands on this bad boy as well, and test it.
Medium has a max output of 140 lumens for 5 hours and Low has an output of 55 lumens and 8.5 hours.
The max beam distance is supposed to be 1100 meters.
- Max output High: 500 lumens (measured 477 lumens at the start, 468 after 30 seconds)
- Max output Med: 140 lumens ( I measured 135 lumens)
- Max output low: 55 lumens ( I measured 50 lumens)
- Max beam distance: 1100meters ( I measured 1391 meters, at 20 meters distance)
- 21700 battery with USB-C charge port
- Momentary On in any mode.
Runtime comparison with the Nextorch T7L in terms of candela. You can see that the new T10L is outperforming the T7L by a lot.
