The Intimidator may be the brightest LED flashlight money can buy! For us, it is hands down the best camping flashlight that we’ve ever owned. In the next few moments we’ll tell you why we feel this way and give you a bit more information on the SR52UT Intimidator from OLIGHT. Feel free to check out our video review also!
Cree XP-L High Intensity LED Lamp
Under the lens of the Intimidator you’ll find the well known Cree XP-L High Intensity LED lamp making this one of the coolest flashlights to the touch. This lamp provides 1,100 lumens for 4 hours, 550 lumens for 7.5 hours and 80 lumens for up to 40 hours with candela of 160,000cd.
We use this flashlight at home every night when taking the dogs out in the back yard for their potty breaks and very seldom take it off the Mode 3 (80 lumens) setting for fear of the neighbors complaining.
One of the greatest features for us is the fact that this OLIGHT product is waterproof up to 2 meters. Since we’re constantly around water when camping, this awesome feature is a must have for us. Another very important feature to be found here is the construction and endurance of the Intimidator.
By now I’ve dropped this flashlight over and over being the clumsy, aging ding dong that I am and I still haven’t even put a dent in it. It’s made of aircraft-grade aluminum with a Stainless Steel bezel and oh boy do I appreciate these facts. It does weigh in just a hair over 2lbs so you definitely want to avoid dropping it on your toe!
Brightness Settings to Charging Features
The on-off switch cycles through the three brightness settings and also activates a strobe light and will automatically return to your last brightness level due to a built in memory function.
A charging status indicator on this light will also notify you when the light is fully charged so there’s no guess work involved when needing to charge this unit’s batteries up.
Charging quite possibly the best high lumens flashlight is simple using a micro-USB port and just plugging into a USB port on laptop, 12v charger or even a portable solar panel like the Renogy 100 Watt Suitcase Solar Panel.
What Comes in the Box…
When you purchase the SR52UT Intimidator, inside the box you’ll also receive the USB cord, a USB Vehicle Power Adapter, a spare O-ring, a holster and a manual. One of the most outstanding features of this unit is that it comes with a 5 year warranty… obviously OLIGHT is serious about producing quality products.
