THE asymmetrically designed Sync didn’t have a focus control, rather a white LED for spot and another for flood. We could choose between a combined spot/flood plus full or reduced power via a neat rotary control on the left, which in many respects was better than a push button system. At just 85g, it was one of the lightest and most comfortable units on test, and the beam angled through almost 180 degrees, giving the Sync wide range. The lack of focus didn’t affect our car work. However, it was the most expensive of the nonrechargeable torches, which hampered its rating.
