By introducing the M17R, Led Lenser launches an attack on the renowned position of the Maglite Magcharger. This rechargeable flashlight has lots of features that make it a very attractive alternative. The maximum light output of 850 lumens is huge, especially considering the combination with the focusable lamp head. By narrowing the light beam you can reach an enormous range of 450 meters. If the bundle is used in the wide mode, you have a great overview.
With the turning ring you switch quickly between various output modes. Within the different output modes you can choose several options by pressing the switch briefly. This works quick and easy. Ideal under circumstances where you want to keep your focus on other issues than in the operation of your flashlight. You can also choose between 2 Energy Modes and several light programs. With the Smart Light Technology of Led Lenser, this torch is fully customizable to your own needs.
The charging condition of the battery can be seen on the ring of blue LED's which is mounted in the back of the torch. Also while charging, it is very clearly marked wheather charging is still in progress or that the battery is full. The same LED's are used to indicate the relative burning time when the torch is in use: by pressing the charging contacts in the back of the torch, more or less of the LED's will light up. This is depending on the light mode on which the torch is set.
The battery in the M17R is very special. It is equipped with Safety-Ytrion-Cell technology. The main advantages of this battery: the absence of the memory effect, the short charging times and the minimum charging capacity after multiple charging cycles. Even after almost 2000 charging cycles, the capacity is hardly reduced.
