    Hey there guys,

    I have received a great flashlight, the Eagle Eye X5R. I definitely recommend this light to anyone, who wants a rechargable, 18650 battery fueled tactical flashlight, with some great features!


    I want to share some key features, and also am in-depth video review (where I tell my personal experience)

    Strong points:
    - Slick, straight body design, feels really great in the hand
    - XP-L Hi LED emitter, 1000 Lumens maximum output
    - Offers 3 different color temperature: 5000-5500K, 5200-5600K, 6000-6500K
    - It has an inbuilt charger, we can use any standard micro-USB cable
    - Can be used while charging through a micro USB cable
    - 4 modes: 10-180-450-1000 Lumens, 140-7.5-2.5-1 hour runtimes respectively
    - The strobe mode is one of the most disorienting out of the dozens of flashlights that I have used (check the video)
    - Tactical tailcap button, with tailstand capability and momentary features
    - Includes a glow-in-the-dark tailcap button
    - The mode-switch button is nicely recessed, but still easy to find in the dark
    - Stainless steel crenulated bezel to emphasize the tactical design
    - As always, water and drop resistant

    Some weak points:
    - No voltage indicator
    - The pocket clip is made out of stainless steel, uncoated. Yes, it's the shiny type.
    - The mode spacing is not that great in lower levels, which also has effect on the runtimes
    - No firefly mode

    This flashlight is basically a very cheap alternative to the Thrunite TC12, featuring the same LED emitter, same color temperature, recharging capability, high quality anodizing. For about 1/3 of the price, it's truly a steal.

    Check out my in-depth video review:

    Have a great one! :)
