Product Features

The salient features of the TK120X could be attributed to EcoGear FX’s years of product evolution and development where designs conform to changing times and the materials’ technological advancement over the years. Check out these awesome features:

   1. Product Materials

The torch is primarily made from solid aluminum alloy, finished in hard-anodized manner and is typically shock-proof. The flashlight’s head is basically designed for self-defense, tactical combat conditions and emergency situations such as window breaking or as a tool in striking intruder on body parts to render him/her disabled temporarily. The latter scenario is only advisable if your life is threatened with danger from another person or any creature capable of hurting you. That’s what we call a “multi-tasking device”. The alloy also gives the torch material strength which eliminates possible damage, breakings or scratches on the unit if accidentally dropped or intentionally smashed.

   2. Ultra-bright beam

The beam is so bright it could reach up to 985 feet (300 meters) of distance from the user’s perspective. Its reflector is designed specially to enhance light intensity and distance. The LED is a high quality CREE XML T6 with a maximum output of 1600 Lumens. The white LED comes in one piece with the package.

   3. 5 Functional Modes

The 5 functions of this product are as follows: High, Med, Low and Fast-strobe and the last is SOS signal (for emergencies). The different light modes could be achieved through the built-in switch which is also used to turn it on and off.

   4. Waterproof

Practically water resistant, the product’s internal parts are tightly sealed with combinations of rubber seal rings (O-rings) that keep water as well as moisture, dirt and dust away.

   5. Rechargeable Battery

The package is provided with two type 18650 X 3.7V X 3000mAh lithium batteries which could be recharged. A charger is provided in the package.

   6. Lightweight

Weighing only 0.44 lbs. (7 ounces) and measuring 7.95 inches while the tube’s diameter is only 1 inch at the largest point, the torch is superlight which is truly portable and could be carried anywhere you go, day or night.

   7. Current fluctuation safe

The LED emitter of the EcoGear FX Professional Grade LED Flashlight Kit is programmed to receive constant flow of current and voltage on the circuit even if the supply from the grid fluctuates which is sometimes the case. In this feature, the circuit will not be damaged in case current and voltage suddenly surged.

   8. Professional Grade LED

The zooming effect of this light provides wide spread beam as well as when focused in a distance. These are really convenient for professionals and individuals and ideal for night hunting, fishing, camping, trekking and other worthwhile sports and tactical situations.
