Over the past year, USB rechargeable lights have become quite popular in the EDC space. It's easy to see why—they let you focus on using the light without the headache of tracking down the right batteries for it.
The Fenix RC11 stands out from most USB rechargeable lights on the market with its magnetic charging port and cable system. Charging the RC11 is as simple as snapping the magnetic dual-purpose cable onto a magnetic port built right into the side of the body. It's quick, easy, and has the added benefit of preventing damage to your gear if you forget to unplug or if someone trips over your cable.
A light with a unique charging port is cool, but it still has to stand up to the demands of your EDC. The Fenix RC11 backs up its killer app with worthy specs. The included 18650 lithium-ion battery powers its CREE XM-L2 U2 LED up to a max of 1000 lumens, throwing an impressive 200 meters. It has simple one-button operation via a single side switch to access six modes, including a 10-lumen Eco setting that runs for 135 hours.
At just under 4.5 inches in length, the RC11 offers a balance between size and capability for your EDC. Tack on the magnetic charging ability and you have a light that's worthy to add to your collection.
