Every choice--in optics, electronics, materials, thermal and power management, durability and usability--is driven by performance criteria. Individual reflectors surround each of the five LED lamps recessed in the X5's patented stainless steel head. These powerful, shock-proof lamps project light up to 120 feet and operate from -30 to +60 degrees Celsius. The advanced lithium batteries included with the X5 generate up to 20 hours of light and have a shelf life of more than 10 years.
The X5 lights the way, emitting pure, wavelength-specific color. Its body is 4.75 inches of precision-machined aircraft aluminum clad in military-grade, Type III anodizing. Critical mating surfaces are held to + or - 0.0005 inch tolerances, and exact compression sealing locks out moisture. The waterproof X5 is crush-proof to over 2000 pounds--which is to say, it's practically indestructible
This light's patent-pending, three-mode switch cap enhances operation while ensuring waterproof integrity. The knurled cap, complete with lanyard hole, houses a non-slip, compression-sealed button. This smart, ergonomic design lets owners unleash the power of the X5 with one-handed control and prevents accidental activation in transport.

It doesn't look much like a traditional flashlight - a smooth aluminum tube with eight flat sides machined into the center, capped at the ends with a rubber button switch at the tail and a stainless steel bezel at the front. Aside from the lanyard hole that goes through the knurled tailcap, it's about as simple and straightforward as it gets, measuring a full inch shorter than the MiniMag and a quarter of an ounce lighter. It resembles a flashlight circuit that's been carved into a solid slug of metal.
Which is exactly how it feels when you hold the X5. The aluminum is military-grade Type III anodized; if you're a long-time MagLite user, you might have noticed that it's Type II exterior collects nicks and scratches over time - no such problems here. With no glass or filaments, no "breakable" parts, the little Inova is about as rugged a light as modern technology can provide. A water-resistant 1+ ton crush rating means backing over it with your car in the rain will leave the X5 unfazed.
But the highlight is the light - *The X5 has as much light output as a full-size 3 D-cell Maglite.* The light beam is phosphor-white, similar to an HID car headlight, and produces an even, round flood on whatever you're lighting. The five Nichia CS LEDs are "lifetime" rated (100,000+ hours) and are actually a patented design utilizing fluorescence techniques in manufacturing, meaning they're uniquely brighter compared even to other LEDs.Read more ›
The X5 is very solid, and has a nice feel in the hand; the tailcap switch makes it very handy to use, without fumbling for a side button. While I used to be seduced by the long "throw" of tightly focused flashlights, I've come to prefer the smooth, broad flood-like beam of LED flashlights like this one, since nearly everything I do with a flashlight is within 20 feet.
It is a "broad" or "flood" beam, not a spot. Inova makes others that are "spot" focused. It's very bright, and I know this reads as silly, but it really shines in the dark. If you compare this light to another in the dark, you'll really appreciate the difference in intensity over the width of the beam. It's the perfect light when the electricity is out and you find yourself walking around in the dark. The broad beam helps avoid tripping over things that are just in the periphery. And the broad beam is even so you won't find yourself moving or rolling the flashlight to look at something without the unevenness of an incandescent bulb.
If you like to work with a flashlight in your mouth, this isn't the one...it's small enough but just a tad too heavy and metallic to be comfortable for anything more than a few seconds. If this comment doesn't make sense, it doesn't apply to you.
The light will roll on a flat surface. Just an observation, not a complaint. I suspect you could drop it from 30 feet onto concrete and it would still work flawlessly.
When people see me using this light they ALWAYS ask about it and want one. The batteries last a long time and have a long shelf life so I buy them in bulk packs of 12 for the best price.
Because of the compactness, durability, brightness and long battery life, this is my preferred general purpose flashlight.
The X5 gives you a lot of great usable light for its entire beam radius and is great for close-range navigation or searching for things in the dark, but it will NOT be like a reflectored tactical light that can produce a beam visible a football field away! It was never designed to do so.
What you will get is 6-hours of full brightness runtime and then another 6 hours or more of dimming light on top of that. In fact, if you have a camera or other flashlight that uses CR-123A batteries, you can even stuff their "dead" batteries into this flashlight and it'll still light up brightly. This is a great flashlight for sucking every last drop out of those expensive CR-123A cells.
The use of 5 LED's also means you get a pure consistent-white beam unlike the "luxeon lottery" effect where with single-LED flashlights you can buy 5 white ones and they actually have strong blue purple green red tints to it due to manufacturing variance. The use of 5 LED's means that this all balances out. The overall color of the beam is white with a bit of a violet/blue corona, "cool white" as lightbulb manufacturers call it.
It's comfortably sized and easy to hold in the hand and the momentary-on push function is effortlessly depressed , not tightly loaded like some Inovas.
As with every Inova, it's made here in the USA and comes with a lifetime warranty.Read more ›
