Monday, October 20, 2014 SS-A100 Flashlight - Review

Today we are reviewing the SS-A100 950 Lumen Flashlight.  Kick back and enjoy.


SS-A100 CREE/XM-T6 8W 950LM 3 Mode Focus Flashlight
Black in color

Smile Shark - ???

950 Lumens on the highest setting
I couldn’t find any information on the low setting but it is at least half of the max setting.

Strobe is very bright

Focus able bean which I use more than I expected.

I have had at least and I mean at LEAST 60 hours worth of trail time with this light and I love it.

For me, this is one of the best hiking lights that I have used in a very long time.  It’s so bright that it literally illuminates everything!

When it comes to durability, I have accidentally dropped it 3.5 ft onto crushed gravel and there were no issues.

I have also carried this light in numerous rains; incredibly heavy rain to light drizzle.

Again no issues.
I wouldn’t toss this into a river or body of water though and honestly, I wouldn’t do that with any flashlight.

This light runs on two different types of batteries;

1- 18650
or 3-AA.

Do yourself a favor, order some cheap 18650 batteries and enjoy!

When it comes to battery life, I consider it to be very good.
One 1 TangsFire 3600 mAh battery  I’m getting around 3 - 4 hours of burn time on the highest setting.

When I go out for a night hike, I will typically bring along a back up fully charged 18650 battery and I’m set.
