When I’m not working in front of a screen or doing work around the house, I like to spend my free time outdoors going on adventures.
The Anker LC90 rechargeable Tactical Flashlight provides 900 Lumens via a CREE LED over a visible range of 660ft (200m). You can see in this picture that its definitely seen its share of objects.
The packaging is standard anker packaging and includes the LC90 Flashlight, a 3350mAh rechargeable battery, micro USB cable, lanyard strap, and instruction manual.
The 3350mAh rechargeable battery is rated for 6 hours of run time (at medium light setting) and takes roughly 6 hours to recharge via the built in charger port on the flashlight.
The physical housing of the flashlight is made of durable aluminum with shock resistant characteristics and touts a IP65 rating. This rating means the device is totally protected against dust and protected against water jests. In practice this means you can take your flashlight to the depths of the earth (except into the core where it will melt) and not have to worry about dirt, dust, or sand getting into the housing and no need to fret over a rainstorm.
The LC90 has 5 different light modes: High / Medium / Low / Strobe / SOS
High (Narrow Zoom / Wide Zoom):
Medium (Narrow Zoom / Wide Zoom):
Low(Narrow Zoom / Wide Zoom):
I was planning on showing the strobe and SOS actions but decided against it due to not wanting to cause any issues for anyone with the flashing light. For strobe, it flashes pretty quickly (maybe a few times a second). For the SOS action, the light flashes the letters “S” “O” “S” in Morris code.
I personally don’t see a point to the strobe function, but its there.
Charging the battery of the flashlight is rather easy with the built in charging port on the flashlight. Just unscrew the bottom cap and plug in a micro USB charging cable. When the LED next to the charging cable is red that means it is charging:
The LED changes to green when the battery is fully charged:
