The popular M17R just got even better with the new upgraded i17R. Still featuring the output selector ring design and floating charging as before, but now with a higher 1000 lumens output, and as it is part pf the Industrial series it has the signature yellow detailing to make it stand out.
The Advanced Focus System optics allow the i17R to be focused from spot to flood simply by sliding the head backwards and forwards, providing a maximum beam range of 450 metres when focused into a spot on the highest setting.
An intuitive Fast Action Switch towards the front of the high-strength aluminium barrel opens up a portfolio of numerous individual user options and controls. These include two Energy modes (Constant Current, Energy Saving) and four pre-set Light modes utilising up to eight Light Options (power, low power, dimmable, momentary, SOS, blink, position, strobe).
Five positions on the fast action selector ring allow access to different outputs. The far left icon is a lock symbol and when in this position the light cannot be turned on with the button. The next icon is a half shaded circle which turns on in high with one press and another quick press will change to the low output. Once turned on in high, the button can be held down to access the dimming feature and the output can be dimmed between the high and low outputs, releasing the button at the desired output.
The next icon is a full circle which gives momentary access to the power mode. Simply press and hold the button and the light will come on in high, and once the button is released the light will go out, which can be useful for Morse signalling. The fourth icon has a small SOS printed on it and is the signal light programme which cycles through SOS, blink and position. The fifth and final icon has a lightening bolt and is the defence light programme which comes on in strobe and can be cycled to the high output.
Other clever features include an emergency light that switches itself on automatically if the power supply is interrupted or fails while it is connected to the power via the charging cable and when the emergency mode is activated. To activate the emergency mode select the half circle mode on the selector ring, then hold down the button for 10 seconds and the light will blink four times to show emergency mode is on or blink twice to show emergency mode is off.
The i17R uses a LiFeP04 rechargeable battery pack that is charged inside the torch using the floating charging system. The charging cable consists of three sections, the UK mains plug which has a figure of 8 connection that fits into the power block, and the the power block cable connects to the final charging cable which features the magnetic end that attaches to the tail of the torch. Once connected together and the power is on the torch will begin to charge and the indicator on the magnetic connector will turn red to show charging in progress and turn green once charging is complete.
A bracket is supplied that can be wall mounted and is designed to hold the i17R in place while on charge or it can also be used flat on a surface, but it is not required to charge the torch as this can be done with the torch lay down or even stood on its end if you prefer.
It is supplied with a hard carrying case containing integrated battery, magnetic charger, car charger, wall mount, belt clip and orange traffic cone.
