E20r

Jetbeam E20R

While seeing thousands of lumens light up your backyard never gets old, a light you can slip into your pocket and forget about is what EDC is all about. And while it used to be that such lights were more about portability than their power, these days we're spoiled for choice for lights that can do both. Jetbeam's new E20R is one of them, joining a small but impressive group of lights with plenty of both lumens and features to surprise and delight any EDCer.

We've seen plenty of lights that can use a CR123A or 16340 rechargeable battery, but few of them can get up to the outputs the E20R can. Its Luminus SST-40 N4 BC LED is able to push out up to 520 lumens with a CR123A battery, while the higher-voltage 16340 can dole out a whopping 990 lumens on its highest setting. A side switch controls the E20R's 5 modes, which comes with a built-in indicator to let you know when the battery is running low. But don't fret, as the light comes with a built-in micro USB charging port to top up during heavy use.

The ER20's type III hard-anodized shell keeps the light durable but lightweight, with an IPX8 waterproof rating that gives it up to 2 meters of submersible resistance. A ridged design built into the head helps with both cooling and anti-roll capability, while a magnetic tail gives the light versatile, hands-free use. With its 3” length and included pocket clip, pocketing the E20R for EDC is no problem.

Thanks to lights like the E20R, there's no longer a need to choose between power or pocketability. Pick one up at the Amazon link below.
