Featuring a Cree XP-G2 S2 LED and a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, the RC1 delivers a stunning, balanced beam capable of illuminating at a maximum distance of 235 metres.

Simply plug the supplied USB charging cable into the USB port on your computer, or using a mains USB adaptor or a car charging adaptor (sold separately on our website) you can charge the RC1 via the mains or in the car.

The intelligent charging circuit has all the safety features that are inbuilt into an Xtar charger, such as the three stage TT/CC/CV charging system and has a 1 A charging current, so charging your battery is safe and fast.

The Xtar RC1 features a single tail cap button that operates the two brightness settings of high and low, making this an easy to use EDC torch.

Xtar RC1 Rechargeable LED Torch Kit
Saturday, 24 December 2016  | 

The robust but elegant torch arrived very quickly. The light is bright and the amusing instructions reasonably easy to follow with the help of the pictures. I haven't tried recharging it yet. Changing the brightness is a bit fiddly but I don't plan to do that as a rule.

Very good torch and VERY quick delivery. Thanks a lot!

What no instructions

Good torch - feels nice in the hand but no instructions so a bit of a struggle to find re-charge point


Thanks for your review and sorry about the lack of instructions, the manufacturer must have missed them out in error. We have emailed you the instructions now.

A very good and well made EDC flashlight. Just two settings, low and high which makes it simple to use. On its highest setting, I think it would be bright enough for most people and the low setting at 60 lumens is very useful. Also, doesn't take to long to charge. Overall, a good value flashlight.
