The Coast HP3R is a rechargeable penlight that offers an output of 245 lumens or 86 lumens depending on the battery type being used.
The dual power system means that it can be powered by the included Coast 530 mAh rechargeable lithium polymer battery, which is more economical in the long run, or it can use two non-rechargeable AAA alkaline batteries that can be swapped out with the lithium polymer battery for lower outputs but longer run-times, which is perfect as a back up if you run out of charge and are away from a power source.
The rechargeable lithium polymer battery can be charged inside the torch via the hidden Pro-Tek charging port built into the tail which can be revealed by twisting just the top section of the tail cap above the red line. If you want to swap out the batteries being used then the tail cap unscrews fully below the red line design. While charging is in progress an LED indicator glows red next to the torch charging port, and turns green once charging is complete. Never attempt to charge the torch with AAA alkaline batteries inserted.
Quick half presses of the tactical tail switch from off cycles high / low, and you can fully press the button in on the required output, giving you the option to choose the right level for your application. alternatively if the torch is turned fully on and off in quick succession it will also switch between high and low. If the button isn't pressed in quick succession, the light will revert to come on in high as default with a single full press.
Using Coast's Universal Focusing Optic System designed for their smaller light, the beam can be focused between a spot beam with a range of up to 93 metres, and a flood beam with one hand by twisting the head of the HP3R.
Dust and water resistant to IP54 standards, it is perfect for DIY, electrical inspection, checking under bonnets and small general daily tasks.
