We just found out that the hugely popular Nebo Redline LED flashlight is now available with a tactical black finish (model 5610). Not that there’s anything wrong with the original’s gunmetal-silver finish, but we think that many flashlight users and enthusiasts will prefer the look of this version.
Like the silver-handled Redline, the new black version features an anodized aircraft-aluminum housing, 220 lumen max output, 110 lumen mid-level output, and 22 lumen low output modes, SOS and defensive strobe settings, and flood to spot beam focusing. It’s 4.5″ long and 1.5″ wide, and is powered off of 3 AAA batteries.
You can buy it from Amazon, or if you’re not picky about flashlight color, you may find a better deal on the original (model 5557). More info via Nebo.
One more interesting piece of information – we’ve learned that the Redline is powered by a Cree XRE Power LED.
this is a very bright flashlight but ive been thru 3 of them in a year..i dont abuse them to the point it should break either.i fix appliances for a living so theyre not getting dropped 3 floors onto a concrete slab…i like it because it has a magnet on the button end and i cant find a different brand with this.. im done with rebo and in search of a better flashlight
