Amp 1L

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

The Maxbright LED in the Amp 1L produces 90 lu­mens and grad­u­ally ramps down bright­ness to yield a 72-hour run time from its AAA bat­ter­ies. Twist­ing the rub­ber­ized bezel turns on the light, and press­ing on the in­cluded cone dif­fuser at­tach­ment scat­ters the beam into a broad lan­tern-style pat­tern. The light can then be at­tached to a tent loop or ridge­line with a cara­biner to il­lu­mi­nate your camp­site, or used as an or­di­nary flash­light with the cone re­moved. Half of the light’s poly­mer body is rub­ber­ized for ex­tra grip, and it’s fully O-ring-sealed for an im­pres­sive wa­ter­proof rat­ing. The loop at the tail end of the Amp 1L also fea­tures a bot­tle opener tab in case you need a way to open a cold bev­er­age. Made in the USA.

Pros:

Bright, dif­fuse light works great as a mini-lan­tern

With the cone re­moved, it works equally well as a spot­light

IPX8 wa­ter­proof to 100 me­ters

Cons:

Bot­tle opener seems like an af­ter­thought, and can’t be used when the light is at­tached to a cara­biner The cone at­tach­ment is held in place by fric­tion alone

Sin­gle out­put mode lim­its ver­sa­til­ity
