The Ledlenser P7R Flashlight | High-Powered Flashlight for Every Day Use

Ledlenser has announced the official release of their P7R flashlight. They claim they have the best-selling flashlight, and this particular one is great for every day or on-the-job use.

Not only does it shine at 1,000 lumens, but we’re told this handheld light shines a beam to almost 700-ft., which is pretty impressive. And if you run it on low-power mode, it’ll last you up to 40 hours before you’ll need to recharge it.

What’s really cool about this particular light is its programming feature. Using Smart Light Technology, you can actually program individual light functions, according to Ledlenser. You can even go from a close-up wide flood beam to a focused long-distance beam.

The P7R also uses a Floating Charge system, which Ledlenser said means the light recharges quickly in its wall-mounted charging cradle.

So, suppose you’re looking for a light with a low power function to save battery and make glare-free reading a thing or looking for high-power. In that case, Ledlenser claims they can give you both in their P7R flashlight.

Special features include an end cap switch and a focus lock, which fixes the present degree of focus in place. The P7R is also rated IPX4, which means it is protected against water splash, no matter the direction.

If that’s not enough for you, the light warns you when the battery is getting low—meaning you won’t randomly run out of battery without warning. There’s also a charge indicator on the light, which shows you the battery’s charge status.

If you decide the P7R Flashlight is the light for you, here’s what’s included in your purchase:
