ever moved into the woods at night you
understand the value of a good flash light.
had a chance to test the Romisen RC A4
flashlight and I have to admit I am impressed by
this small wonder.
Romisen RC A4 is a tiny flashlight, it uses in
fact just one CR123 battery , not so easy to
find as AA batteries but for sure much more
battery power is put to good use trough a small
reflector finished in “orange peel” that houses
a CREE Q3 WC LED , this LED produces a very
white and intense light, the manufacturer rates
light emission at 150 Lumens, effective light
output through the lens is surely much less but
, if you are used to a 2XAA flashlight, you will
be astonished by the amount of light of this
little one throws out.
It is sure
enough to illuminate the area down your
treestand up to 30-40 yards away. Of course high
power and small battery means that the light
will not last long : at full power with a good ,
fresh battery you will not run longer than half
hour. You can however decide to lengthen the
battery life using low power mode. The low power
mode, unfortunately, is not that less bright
than full mode so you it is kind of useless in
saving battery: low power is just around 40-50mA
less than full power that draws 750mA.
switch lighting mode simply pressing the rubber
click switch two times: 1st click =
Full power, 2nd click Half Power, 3rd
click SOS .
The third mode is does not actually
modulate an SOS signal, it is a Strobo mode but
sure enough it will get attention.
cone has a very bright spot with a darker flood
cone, it is ideal as a spot light while keeping
an eye onto surroundings. (see pictures)
Romisen RC A4 flashlight has a tactical look
complete with spikes on the bezel that seems to
be a hot trend in flashlight today, on such a
small flashlight it is almost useless but will
appeal to the tactically inclined shooters and
A4 is available in either Dark Olive or
deep Black anodization. The finish is very good
and every piece looks very well machined and
finished. The additional clip can be helpful to
secure the flashlight into your pockets or
the price (less than US$ 15 including shipping)
it is a bargain , I would recommend this to
everyone as a backup flashlight or as a carry
everywhere item, mine in fact usually sits in my
jacket’s pocket. If you carry it as a hunting
light I recommend to carry a spare battery,
maybe a good set of rechargeable ones: if you
use it often it will soon pay out.
