Whether you’re out running on the foggy fells or making a late return to the tent after a longer day than expected, the pocket-sized yet powerful Fluxon is the ideal secret weapon for all manner of nocturnal adventures.
Our favourite thing about Fluxon is that it offers incredible battery life for its power: 4 hours at 1000 lumens. When it does run out of battery, the micro USB port means you can recharge it remotely using your car, a battery pack or solar panel.
Fluxon is reliable. With a tough and protective aluminium body that feels really good in your hand, it’s drop-proof to 2 metres, dustproof (IP6X) and water resistant (IPX6) for that extra assurance when you’re exposed to adverse weather. Its lightness and compactness means it won’t weigh down your pocket or your pack when not in use either.
Additional features - such as a single-hand operation focus beam adjuster for managing your beam width - add to its versatility, so it’s excellent for anything from finding that rogue tent peg to illuminating the trail ahead on a night time misty run.

The torch that's almost too bright!
I saw a colleague's Fluxon at work and added it to my Christmas list. In the 3 weeks since I got mine I've used it for working under the car in the dark, repairing a washing machine and some other jobs around the house and I've been so impressed I'm about to buy another one to keep in the car. The build quality is solid and its effective range is amazing for such a small unit. The only drawback is that when you turn it on it lights up straightaway in the brightest 'Turbo' mode and for close-up work it's just too bright so you have to click through the modes until you can see again.
Really solidly made. Metal body feels cool and heavy in the hand. Torch is especially bright. I’ve had cheap ebay Chinese jobs and this is much much better whilst being around the same price. Ability to recharge away from home from micro usb is a bonus.
This is a powerful torch with USB charging and a variable beam which works well. Very impressed so far - I get that you can't put spare batteries in, but with USB access to charge it, it is great bit of kit!
Potentially Very Good... but one problem
Nicely made torch, super bright and feels like it'll survive a hard day on the hill, USB charging is a bonus. However, be aware that the 18650 is not a standard design (anode and cathode at same end) and therefore you can't substitute with two CR123s if recharge isn't an option, and spare batteries are not available from Alpkit.
