Icon Solo Flashlight Review

Specifications

The Icon Solo is an aluminum body flashlight that is weatherproof. It has two brightness modes with high setting of 30 lumens and a low setting of 2 lumens. Run time is 3 hours on high and 75 hours on low. Power comes from a pair of AAA batteries. You can buy the light online for $15 to $40.

In Use

I have always said that everyone needs to have a flashlight standing by. You never know when you are going to need to peer inside your computer to check a fan or reset CMOS. You also never know when the powered will go out leaving you feeling around for candles. The Icon Solo is a very cool flashlight that doesn't look like anything you buy at the grocery store at the checkout line.

It has LED bulbs that will last for a very long time and dual brightness settings. If you think your lights will be off for a long time the low 2 lumen setting will last for 75 hours on a set of two AAA batteries according to Icon. On high 30-lumen setting, the batteries are only good for about three hours.

The little flashlight is perfect for keeping in a pocket if you are working under the hood of a car. It has a pocket clip. The dual brightness lights are activated by a small button on the back of the body. Click once for low setting, click again and the light goes off. Click again and you get high setting, another click turns the light back off. The body of the flashlight is sealed with o-rings to keep water out. This is an awesome looking little light.

Verdict

Pros

  • Very bright
  • Very small
  • Long life on low setting

Cons

  • Doesn't last long on high setting on a set of batteries
 

Conclusion

The Icon Solo is a very cool looking flashlight that is light, small, and easy to use.
