RovyVon Aurora A6 High CRI Flashlight

If you've been on the market for a new EDC flashlight recently, chances are you've come across the RovyVon Aurora series. The glow-in-the-dark Aurora A5 was one of our favorite lights of last year, with high praise from our editors and our readers alike for its innovative features and design at a great price. But if you haven't had a chance to pick up one of these versatile keychain lights, you now have even more options with the new Aurora A6. It keeps much of the same great features that set the A5 apart from the rest, but now comes with a beautifully color-accurate main LED and even more side-mounted light options to boot. Whether you're a flashlight enthusiast or just starting to build your EDC, there's something for you in the new RovyVon Aurora A6.

The most notable difference with the Aurora A6 is its main LED. Instead of the 550-lumen cool white CREE XP-G3 LED on the A5, this new model offers a high color rendering index (CRI) Nichia 219C LED with a max output of 300 lumens. When it comes to the output on the A6, it's more quality over quantity. The Nichia 219C produces a “warm white” beam that more closely resembles sunlight, making colors look more natural and accurate. It's a stark contrast to typical “cool white” LEDs that can make your surroundings look harshly washed out or “cold.” If you find yourself using your EDC light mainly in outdoors settings, a high CRI light makes a huge difference. And at the end of the day, 300 lumens is still plenty for general EDC tasks and can be worth the tradeoff for more accurate color depending on your lighting tasks. The other change is the A6's side-mounted LED now comes with a blue option that works in tandem with the red LED to server as an alert or signal light.

Aside from the changes to the LEDs, the A6 retains those same great features from the A5. Its glow-in-the-dark polycarbonate housing is still just 2.16” long and 0.416 oz in weight, making it ultra portable. A stainless steel bezel protects the business end of the light from impact, a side switch operates both the main LED and side lights, while a lanyard attachment point at the tail end of the light and an included, reversible, 2-way pocket clip give you convenient carry options. Its 130mAh Li-ion battery recharges via a built-in micro USB port too. Last but not least, it features IP65 water resistance so you don't have to worry about rain and splashes. If you've been holding out for a high CRI version of the Aurora, now's your chance to see what all the hype is about. Grab one for your EDC at the link below.

Good to see Rovyvon have kept the logical increments of low-med-high, and 300L is pretty good. But once you have lived outdoors with the A5UV at 550 it's a big step down, even if the light is warmer. The side lights are very adequate, initiating a lubberly green glow for some time, and the UV is just great fun.
I'd like to play with the A6, however, just for the hell of it. DF,DS!
Just FYI - per the Amazon listing, the body is not glow in the dark "The Aurora A6 is the first RovyVon flashlight coming with Nichia LED - 219C R9050 with high CRI. It has 2 versions - A6U (White+UV sidelights) and A6WB (White, red flash, red blue flash). A6 has the same interface as the Aurora A5, and the body is no longer glow but transparent, therefore the UV light is more effective."

Still a neat light. I had been thinking about one, or the A3 with a Nichia. I ultimately decided to go a different route due to the mode sequence and super short turbo. The one with the side LEDs is very tempting though!
