Flashlight Of The Day: Syntus adjustable focus LED flashlight

The Syntus adjustable focus LED flashlight can satisfy all your emergency lighting needs around your home or shop without causing a significant dent in your petty cash. The compact, zoomable lighting tool is easy to operate and can be powered by readily available AAA batteries. If you prefer to exact the maximum performance from the light you would have to invest in a 18650 rechargeable Lithium Ion battery and charger. The Syntus light could also serve as a bike light and a useful companion while walking the dog at night.

The Syntus flashlight measures 5.39 inches long when compact and 6.18 inches when fully extended to facilitate the adjustable focus spot-light beam. The light weighs 5.47 ounces without any batteries installed. The Syntus is housed inside an aerospace-grade aluminum casing which features a removable, crenellated bezel which would come in handy during emergencies. The flashlight also features a hard anodized, anti-abrasive Black finish.

The flashlight utilizes a Cree Q5 LED emitter, a bronze reflector and an ultra-clear convex, mineral glass lens. The Syntus produces a maximum output of 750 lumens, a beam throw distance of 300 meters and five light modes: High; Mid; Low; Strobe; SOS. The flashlight can be powered by three AAA batteries (NiMH/Alkaline) or one 18650 battery. A battery sleeve is provided for the 18650 battery and a battery carrier for the AAA batteries. The batteries are to be placed inside the containers before being inserted into the flashlight to ensure a tight fit.

The Syntus flashlight is operated by a bright green rubber switch in the tailcap and the zoom feature in the head. Press the switch all the way down until a click is heard to turn the flashlight on/off. Press the switch partway down to cycle through the various brightness levels in the following order; High, Mid, Low, Strobe, SOS. With the flashlight turned on, slide the head forward to achieve a tight spotlight beam. With the light light turned on, slide the back to achieve a broad floodlight. The flashlight turns on in the next light mode in the cycle to the one previously used.
