Angle lights aren’t new, however you do not see a lot of lights that will convert from traditional to angle – especially in modern higher powered LED lights. This light, the Rofis TR20 Angle light is just that – a modern LED flashlight utilizing an up-to-date LED emitter (XPL HI V3) that can easily change from straight to angle
The light features a rotating angle-head design that allows you to use it as a traditional flashlight, or rotate the head 90 degrees and use it as an angle light.
It features a modern emitter, the Cree XPL and Rofis rates the light at 1100 lumen. This is probably an “emitter lumen” rating – it measured just under 800 lumen in my integrating sphere which is about right for an ‘out the front’ rating.
Built-in charging is becoming more common in flashlights these days, and the Rofis includes that feature and utilizes the ubiquitous micro USB port. Rofis includes a USB to Micro USB cable.
The light is finished in HAIII and is rated as IPX-8 “waterproof” (assuming you don’t leave the USB port cover open!)
It’s just over 5 inches long and weighs 3 ounces. The included clip is reversible and holds very well. One of my favorite features is the flat detachable magnetic tail. It allows tail standing on a flat surface and/or easy attachment to metal/iron surfaces.
The dual switch interface accesses Moonlight/Ultra-Low/Low/ Mid/High/Turbo/Strobe/SOS/Location Beacon.
I used the light for a while before reporting on it. It is a nice light, and the angle head and magnetic tail / tripod threaded tail are all useful
As mentioned, the light includes a holster, lanyard, micro usb charging cable and a spare cover for the USB charging port:
USB “in light” charging is becoming more common these days, and this one has a relatively easy to access port under a flexible rubber cover
Power is suppled by a Rofis branded 3400mAh 18650 protected cell
Operation is a bit aggravating to me. Since I use flashlights in the dark, sometimes it’s tough to find the switch, right? Although this switch does have LED indicators to alert you to the state of charge, when you pick up the light (ostensibly in the dark) you have to search for the switch. There’s no contrast to help you see, and the switch is directly opposite the charging port. You eventually ‘learn’ where the switch is, but you have to feel around for it even then. That’s a poor design in my book
The back switch is on/off – the upper switch is for the various modes.
The body has decent diamond cut knurling in the center section and the tail cap
My old hands suffer from a bit of arthritis, and I found the head somewhat difficult to turn. You probably don’t want it to be too easy to turn, but a little bit easier would be better…
I had to laugh – you can hear my grunt near the end of the video
The magnetic tail and the angle head can be quite useful – I didn’t try the tripod threads
Here it’s shedding a little light on my gun safe…
The light is a bit long for pocket carry, but the clip is decent and the holster gives yet another carry option (with the head straight)
