The Nebo Redline Select (5620) is a new LED flashlight that features a blindingly bright 310 lumen output, 2 hours of runtime, IP65 waterproof rating, and 2 meter impact rating.
Nebo’s Redline LED flashlight, reviewed favorable by a guest reviewer nearly 2 years ago, has sold extremely well over at Amazon. There have been a number of reports describing a gradual permanent dimming effect, but this doesn’t seem to be a widespread issue.
The Redline Select seems to be a substantial improvement over the original Redline, in terms of brightness and housing specs, but it also sports new features. A new smart dial allows users to change light modes with ease and a “stealth ring” allows you to block light from shining through the translucent red Redline ring.

To be honest, I really don’t know what to make of the Redline Select. It looks interesting, and I’d like to think that Nebo designed it as a major upgrade and refinement over the original Redline. On paper it looks like a solid choice, especially at a sub-$50 price point, but it does look a bit too Tacticool for my linking.
310 lumens is overkill for most users, but many shop for flashlights thinking the brighter the better. It’s good to see that the brightness can be dialed down and the setting locked-in.
The Redline Select is priced at $45.
