From the Manufacturer

The Rex features four extremely bright LEDs in a single line array. The entire array has Freedom features which include variable brightness, multiple signal modes and an automatic SOS mode. The SOS mode will blink continuously for hours without recharging and is visible for miles. This feature, if used by stranded hikers or motorists, could enable search and rescue teams to locate people who might otherwise not be found. The most important break-through feature of the Rex is, of course, its recharging ability. By simply connecting to any common battery, the Rex will recharge up to 500 times and signals when charging. This light can operate for about 1 hour on a full charge and the average time to recharge is 2-4 hours. The Rex is water resistant and produces a bright beam over 250 candlepower strong.

You might think this microlight is a bit overpriced, but considering that it is rechargeable, it is well worth the expense.

Consider this: The Photon Freedom, also from LRI, costs $13.20 plus shipping. For $10 more, you get a microlight that has 3 more LEDs, and that can charge up to 500 times from almost any common household battery: AA, AAA, C, D, etc. So rather than spending money buying the annoying button cells such as the 2032's and 2016's, you can simply hook up this little Photon Rex and have it charged in about 3 hours.

**According to the package, charging the REX using a D-cell battery costs 6 cents per charge!**

Pros:

-Has 4 LEDs instead of 1, thus it is MUCH brighter than traditional keychain lights/microlights. It outperforms my other Photon light as well as my Streamlight NANO and my INOVA microlight.

-It comes equpped with FREEDOM technology. For those not familiar with this, it means that you can press down on the on/off button and hold it down, and it will gradually brighten up or dim itself to your desired level of brightness. It will blink when the maximum brightness is achieved. If you keep holding the button down past the blink, you will the progress to the equipped SOS, slow beacon, and strobe modes.

-It has two magnetic poles on the back, to which you easily attach the charger. Instructions are very simple to follow, and the charger works with almost any common household battery.

-It has a strong keychain clip that will secure your light without fear of losing it.

-It can be recharged 500 times.

-The button glows in the dark, making it easy to find.

CONs:

-The button is a bit hard to press down on, but you can easily get used to it.

This is an amazing little light. Sometime around the turn of the century I modified a Photon keychain light for my watch band. I upgraded it when they changed to the brighter Freedom model. I wouldn't be without the Photon on my watch band, but it isn't perfect. It is enough of a nuisance to change the batteries that I let it get a little dim. And I sometimes need more light.

A ReX is now on my keychain. I still go to my wrist if I need a quick light, but the ReX is a full blown flashlight in my pocket that is always at full charge. It puts out an amazing amount of light for its size. I have several flashlights around my house with 8 LEDs that take 3 AAA cells. The little ReX is not only tiny by comparison but it is brighter. It also has a more pleasant warm light. The beam is a wide flood with decent throw. I like the large switch button. And did I mention how bright it is?

Recharging is easy. You put two rare earth magnets on the poles of a battery and a little adapter snaps magnetically onto two small contacts on the ReX. It puts out tiny blinks until it is charged. I use a rechargeable NiMH battery, but you can use any standard battery that isn't over 3v.

I seldom use the modes on my Freedom and haven't had occasion to do anything but check them out on the ReX. It might be useful to use a lower intensity if you needed a long burn time. And the strobe might be handy if you had to get someone's attention - just hope they aren't epileptic.

About the only time I don't have my keys in my pocket is when I am on my boat. So I put another ReX on the boat keys with a quick disconnect. I just wish it was small enough to put on my watch band.

Get one - you won't be disappointed.

I am a technician. I have many flashlights. I buy every headlight that I think may have an advantage. The LRI ReX Photon Rechargeable is the best. It meets all my requirements. It fits nicely in my pocket, because it is flat and smooth and small. It provides a wide beam, which I need because I work generally close, but often at difficult angles. It has a compact headband, easy to quickly put on without worrying which way is up. It has a simple button that turns it right on, without hunting for the switch or going to different flashing modes by accident. It recharges, so I save the hundred or so dollars a year that some other headlights' batteries cost, because I use the light a lot every day.

The headband and USB-charger come in a separate accessory kit that costs as much as the flashlight. That begins to seem pretty expensive. But I like it so much I bought a second light and a second accessory kit, so I always have a charged light. Also, I can mount the two lights on a single headband, which I thought I would want, but I haven't needed to do it.

The flashlight comes set in "display mode": it turns off in fifteen seconds. Hold the button for a half-minute to get it permanently out of the annoying display mode.

Verified Purchase
A very deceiving item, when first seen. It's a bright, very bright mini light. The smart chip inside can go from high illumination to low. Or, in reverse. Auto Shuts after twenty seconds and like I said it's bright.
The only negative, and its a small one. The recharging configuration.
A magnetic harness, that needs any AAA battery as a power source to recharge the internal battery. Note, DO NOT LOOSE this harness....
Enjoy!
