The Coast HX5 is a compact torch for everyday carry, and features a dual power system allowing for multiple battery types to be used, which each yield a different lumen output.
Using the included Coast extreme performance AA alkaline battery it provides an output of 168 lumens, or alternatively a rechargeable AA NiMH battery can be used for an output of 125 lumens. For the maximum output available of 360 lumens the HX5 can be powered by a Coast 'Zithion-X' ZX210 micro USB rechargeable lithium-ion battery (not included).
A tail switch allows for simple on/off operation of the white light, while the Pure Beam Focusing Optic System focuses the beam between a spot beam with a range of 77-130 metres, and a flood beam with no dark rings typically associated with focusing torches, by sliding the head of the torch backwards and forwards.
The two way pocket clip can be used either side for easy attachment to clothing, backpacks or the peak of a cap.

I bought this to replace a Ledlenser P6 which had become damaged. I like the fact that this Coast torch has the same sliding focus mechanism as my previous torch. It is small and has sufficient brightness if you simply want a general purpose torch — in which case, recommended.
Needed a compact but bright torch to help me with my pottery and this does the job admirably.
Bought as a back up light for running at night. Needed something lightweight, with good light quality and not too expensive...this is absolutely perfect. Fits neatly in my hand, has a clip for if you need to fix it somewhere, to have both hands free, weighs next to nothing.
