This is Fenix’s entry into the rechargeable flashlight arena.

If you are looking to purchase the RC10 flashlight online, this is the right place. You can find this at online retailers like Amazon for a fair amount of savings over the retail price even if you consider the cost of shipping.

This flashlight is for the person who wants a bright LED flashlight (aren't the all bright!), without the hassle of buying regular batteries or even rechargeable batteries.

Waht you get for your money is a flashlight with a built in 2200 milli Amp h / 3.5 volt rechargeable Lu ion battery. Charging involves simply placing the flashlight in the charging cradle and plugging it into the outlet. There is no removing the battery from the flashlight and charging it up that way. Makes it very convenient to have a flashlight ready to go. Only downside I consider is if your battery is exhausted, you can't just slip in another battery and go. You have to wait until the flashlight is charged up. Of course, you could just buy another flashlight ... A little bit more about the charging and the battery. You can charge this flashlight using either an AC charger going into your home's outlet or in the car. Very handy to have both options. Additionally, the flashlight will let you know when it needs to be charged - there is a built in low voltage warning function.

When the voltage level is checked, the flashlight will enter the lower brightness level. If the voltage level is low, i.e. - the battery needs to be charged, the flashlight will blink three times per second every 5 minutes. If the battery juice is low, the battery will prevent itself from over discharging and will shut down before the battery is completely drained. The charger will show a green light if the battery is completely charged, red otherwise. A full charge takes about three hours. Fenix recommends that you do not charge the flashlight while it is on - either the charging will take longer or it won't fully charge. Also recommended is to charge the battery up every four months if it is not in use for an extended period.

Enough about the battery, lets move on to the capabilities. This is a bright flashlight that can thrown 380 lumens in "turbo" mode out to 700 feet for a little less than two hours. In practical terms that means it is bright for a long time! There are also a low, mid and high mode that delivers 5 lumens, 20 lumens and 140 lumens for 142 hours, 26 hours+, and 6 hours. What flashlight would be complete without the required strobe function. The RC10 flashlight has that to. Like most (all) Fenix flashlights, this one is waterproof to a depth of over 6 feet and meets the IPX-8 rating.

If you are looking for a rechargeable LED flashlight that delivers a bright light for a good amount of time, then the RC10 flashlight is for you.
