Pros

  • 1000 lumens
  • Compact design
  • Chargeable
  • Sheath with clip

Cons

  • Not hands-free

The MT10 flashlight is in a word, intense. If the packaging doesn’t convince you (a chainsaw would have been useful) then the 1000 lumens of light might. It is incredibly well built and while just under 6 oz feels a lot denser. It’s a convenient, compact size at a little over 5 inches long and comes with a handy sheath that clips to your pants, shirt, backpack, etc.

Like the headlamp you can go from a soft 10 lumens (20 meters) of light to the powerful direct 1000 lumens (180 meters). As a women I considered the fact that this 1000 lumens light would blind a would be attacker in a heartbeat.

The light comes with a rechargeable battery via USB cord that takes six hours for a full recharge and is advertised as providing 6 to 144 hours of light depending on your lumen intensity.

I enjoyed using this light for a middle of the night backcountry camp bathroom run as I could see everything within a 500+ foot radius. No shining eyes were sneaking up on me. I would completely trust this light for late night trail jaunts, as a backup light source during bad weather outages or zombie apocalypses.

It's also got a water resistant rating of IPX4 which means it's gonna work in wet conditions. You can also google IPX ratings to get more info. This light comes in at a steeper price point of $80, but given its capacity I think it’s more than worth it for how well it lights up the dark.

Summary

Good flashlight, very bright. Downside is the side switch button.

Pros

  • Very bright

Cons

  • Side button always gets bumped to "on"

The MT10 is a VERY bright 1000 lumens. I love that. Who wants a teeny 120-lumen light? I carry a flashlight because I want to actually SEE stuff and this makes that happen.

Recharging port is a standard micro USB ports, so finding a cord is easy. I like the sliding focus ability. I've had the flashlight for over six months.

Like all flashlights/multi-tools, the nylon case that comes with it is crap. I currently carry it in a Nite Ize case, and while this holds the flashlight securely and comfortably, the side switch button is always getting depressed and turning the flashlight "on". People are always telling me "Hey, your light is on". This causes the battery to drain so that when I need it, I don't have a fully charged battery, so I don't have as much light/time as I would like.

Finding a Kydex holster for it that would shield the side button has proven fruitless. My next step is to try my hand at making one.

Experience

It's part of my EDC. Used almost daily.

Summary

It might weigh a little more than others of similar size, but it's a powerful, rechargeable punch!

Pros

  • Rechargeable
  • High powered (1000 lumens)
  • High quality
  • A beam that you can focus

Cons

  • A little difficult to figure out how to change the "beam" configuration

As a member of another website, I occasionally receive products to test in exchange for a review. I get the awesome opportunity to test out amazing products in exchange for an honest review. This time, I tried out a rechargeable flashlight. The Ledlenser M10 did not disappoint!

Now, while this is not the lightest or smallest flashlight in the world, it has so many features that rock, you won't really want to leave it behind. My favorite feature...it's rechargeable. That means no more wasted batteries!! Here are some of my favorite things about it:

I already mentioned it's rechargeable, and really...that's a great point! On one charge, it can be on high beam (1000 lumens) for about 6 hours. On low beam (10 lumens…still enough to read and hang a bear bag) about 144 hours. Tell me this thing doesn't rock!

It's not giant. It has a huge punch for its size. That means you can toss it in a purse or a pack. And it comes with a little pouch (can be attached to a belt) and a clip (in case you want to clip it directly to your pack or pocket instead).

Yeah, it has a little weight to it, but you'll be glad you didn't leave it behind. You can adjust the beam to "near" and "far". No...this is not a muppet reference. Okay, maybe it is, but seriously...you CAN! Create a wide beam for "all over" viewing, or zoom the beam in for more precise location. It's a unique feature that Ledlenser boasts with their products.

You can choose which program you want for your flashlight when you turn it on. There are a series of "high/medium/low" combos that are available, and you can program the flashlight to recognize the sequence you like best. Not only that, but one sequence creates a quick flashing strobe that helps in an emergency.

The only problem I had was reading the instructions for setting up the sequence I wanted. They are in English, but mainly in picture form. Once you know what the pictures mean, they make sense, but to make sense of them, I actually had to do a little research online. But it's well worth your time to be patient and learn the system.
