The Klarus XT-10 is a fairly small and affordable flashlight with tons of output.

Using the new CREE XM-L LED the XT10 is capable of putting out a blinding 470 lumens on the max brightness setting. That is a lot of light for such a modest sized and modest priced torch. The user has a few options when it comes to powering the XT-10. This light accepts either 2 CR123 lithiums, 1 18650 rechargeable, or 2 16340 rechargeable batteries. Flexibility is always a welcome trait as it makes the light much more versatile and therefore more likely to be used. This is a “do it all” kind of flashlight. There isn’t one specific task is was built for, so it excels at doing most anything.

If you are looking for an easy way to get into high output LED lights then this is a great option. This is a nice way to get an insanely bright light while still keeping your wallet padded.
