The Unilite L-1800 is a USB rechargeable dual LED handheld lantern that has a maximum output of 1800 lumens from the white spot LED and also has an additional flood light torch function in the bottom with a maximum output of 1000 lumens white light from a COB LED, as well as a 25 lumen red output.
Two buttons just above the handle grip are easy to reach while holding and separately control the spot and flood lights. The top button operates the spot and each press will cycle high, mid, low, off, while the bottom button operates the flood and each press will cycle white low, white high, red, red flash and off. If in any setting longer than 3 seconds the next press will turn the light off rather than cycling through to the next output.
Utilising a built in 18,000 mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery, the L-1800 has a run time of up to 9 hours on the highest setting. The battery is easily recharged via the USB Type C port on the back of the light by lifting the dust cover and inserting the charging cable into the USB-C port at one end, and then inserting the USB-A end into a USB port or suitable USB adaptor. While charging the four charging indicators on the handle will display charging progress with one light flashing to start with before becoming solid and the next light flashing until eventually all four LEDs are solid after approximately 8 hours using a 5 V, 3 A output or 7 hours using a 9 V, 2 A output.
In addition to the light function, the L-1800 also has a power bank feature with multiple USB outputs (5 V 3 A, 9 V 2 A, 12 V 1 A) and can charge external devices via the standard USB-A port located next to the USB-C port on the back. To charge an external device simply plug the USB-A end of the required cable for your device into the USB-A port on the light and the device should begin charging automatically. Also on the back next to the ports is a small black switch, that will lockout the lantern buttons and prevent them controlling the torch. This is good to prevent accidental activation in transit, or also to ensure the mode isn't changed while in use.
The four LED indicators also light up when the torch is turned on to show remaining battery power at the current output. Four LEDs is 75-100% power, three LEDs is 50-75% power, two LEDs is 25-50% power, one LED is 5-25% and one flashing LED is less than 5% power and the torch should be charged as soon as possible when at this stage.
It is made from super tough construction with a florescent yellow polycarbonate body for increased robustness, durability and visibility, and also features a a glow in the dark strip around the reflector for extra visibility. A threaded hole in the bottom allows for tripod attachment and a shoulder strap is included for easy carrying.
Always read the manual fully before first use.

Good robust torch with a big battery. It's a torch for power cuts, a good beam, lantern and a phone charger.
I have never had a torch this good! The main beam is ridiculously powerful - I tested the spotlight indoors and nearly blinded my wife, and tested it outdoors by shining it up the hill behind my house at night and the brilliance of the spotlight appears undimmed at >50m. I haven't tested further. The lantern function is also excellent, I tested in a pitch black room which it illuminated like daylight on the brightest setting.I haven't tested the duration of the batteries, but if the performance is anywhere near the stated metrics, it is significantly better than the other options in this price category (although they are mostly pocket torches and this is obviously much bigger and heavier than them - although smaller than I expected and not at all unwieldy). I am very happy with the purchase - great performance and excellent value. I would recommend everyone to buy at least one!
