An advanced programmable light, the XT11S is a 4th generation Klarus lightweight, compact, and rechargeable flashlight. An upgraded version of one of Klarus’ most popular lights, the XT11, this flashlight is directly rechargeable and has a maximum output of 1100 lumens. The XT11S has both a tail switch and a side switch and can be operated with either. However, if you’re not a fan of the side switch then you can take advantage of the side switch lock function. At first glance, the XT11S looks a little crowded with three total switches, but if you take the time to learn about all the features and functions of this light it can quickly become a favorite.
One of best upgrades of the XT11S is that it has a USB port located on the side of the flashlight. It comes equipped with a Klarus 18650 battery already so there’s no need to purchase one or search through your house hoping to find one laying around. There is also an LED in the side switch that serves as a battery capacity indicator which is very helpful when you need to know if your battery is running low.
However, the truly amazing aspect of the XT11S is the programmable operation modes that you can choose from. First, there’s the Conventional Tactical mode which allows you to use any brightness level setting or the emergency strobe mode whenever you need it. This mode is excellent for everyday use. The second mode is the Hunting mode which allows you to instantly access the turbo brightness level or the low brightness level. Also, the strobe mode is inactive on the tail switch to prevent accidental activation of the strobe mode. Finally, there is the Ultimate Tactical mode where the flashlight only operates in the turbo brightness setting and the strobe mode. The side switch is locked to prevent accidental illumination. This particular setting was created with extreme tactical situations in mind. Basically, the XT11S is ready for any situation and can be an incredible asset.
The XT11S definitely takes some time to learn all the bells and whistles so if you’re looking for a simple flashlight then this particular torch is probably not for you. However, if you’re wanting a versatile flashlight and unique flashlight then the XT11S would be highly recommended. It has many excellent features and can be used for a multitude of situations.
