Key Features and Benefits
Pure Beam Focusing Optic
The Pure Beam Focusing Optic combines our largest Ultra View Flood Beam with the Bulls-Eye Spot Beam making either up close or downrange illumination highly efficient. While using the Ultra View Flood Beam, there is a consistent circle of light with perfect edge-to-edge brightness. While on the Bulls-Eye Spot Beam, you can illuminate downrange with a transition halo around the spot to increase the active viewing area.
The Coast Slide Focus System allows you to shape our flashlight beams from Flood to Spot modes with the simple push or pull of your thumb. Rather than having to twist the bezel to focus with a second hand, the Slide Focus System allows you continue using your other hand for your activity or safety.
1 X AA, NiMH, OR Li-Ion

This one, by a long shot.
I need a small light at work and this fits the bill. I can carry it in my pocket and whip it out to inspect equipment at a moment’s notice. The color temp is perfect, very bright, and the battery always lasts longer than I think it should. The focus is very tight. I was worried about it coming loose but it’s been great. It is very well built.
The HP1 has far exceeded my expectations. If you need a flashlight for $10 and are thinking about this or another, trust me, buy this one.
Pro tip: many water bottle caps fit the end nicely and work great as a diffuser. Then just hang it from the clip in your tent or stand it next to you next time you’re under a piece of equipment and voila! Instant soft illumination.
Check out the pics to see what I mean.
The light is made of aluminum, which is anodized black. The anodization is Type II, and the black scratches off very easily. I mean, I used a soft metal (non-marring) caliper arm to attach an O-ring for more grip, and that scratched it. The LED is an R2 (I'm pretty sure) which is good for throw, but there's no reflector in this light. Since it's a zoomie (adjustable flood-to-throw using an optical lens which slides forward or backward) the "throw" isn't as good as it could have been with a reflector. The tailcap is also a little bit "mushy" in that there's some, well, mush in it until it clicks on. The lanyard hole is too small for any split ring I have, and I have some small split rings for flashlights. That's the bad. Now, the review...
The light is 4" long and 1" wide at the head. At the body and tailcap, it's about 0.8" (4/5") in diameter. It weighs 3.8 ounces with an alkaline battery. It can use any AA size: alkaline, lithium, carbon zinc, NiMH, or lithium ion (14500). I tested mine with alkaline and lithium ion, and I used ANSI standards; the results are below.
Runtime to 10%, Duracell Coppertop alkaline (2200 MaH): 3 hours, 39 minutes.
Runtime to 10%, UltraFire 14500, 900MaH: 58 minutes, but it got very hot. I thought it might melt the plastic lens.
Runtime to 10%, Rayovac NiMH 1400 MAH: 2 hours, 11 minutes.
The output was as follows, starting after 30 seconds of being on:
Duracell Coppertop alkaline: 96 lumens.
UltraFire 14500 lithium ion: 193 lumens.
Rayovac NiMH: 66 lumens.
So, the 220 lumen claim is a little optimistic, but that may have been taken right when the light was turn on, or right when the 14500 battery was taken off the charger. Still, at 193 lumens, it's bright for its size.
At no point did the light get too hot to hold, and there was no damage from running it for almost an hour on the 14500: no melted lens, no melted tailcap parts, no dying switch, no nothing.
The head can slide back-and-forth to zoom in or out: slide the head out to get a farther beam, but not as much flood. Pull the head into the body, or at any point in between, to get a smoother beam that's not as focused. It works well, but I found it to be too slick; the zoom is too loose. I had to put some O-rings on the body to prevent the head from sliding back too easily, and it's not much better. Also, when zoomed all the way in, a lot of lights will project a square in the center, being the zoomed-in LED itself. The HP1 doesn't do that. It's not perfectly round, but it's a lot better than the other ones.
The tailcap screws on easily, and has the appropriate O-ring. The switch is plastic and screws in. The switch is just one mode, on or off. It's a forward clicky, meaning you can press it softly for momentary light, or just press it until it clicks for constant light. A tiny lanyard hole is drilled in, but it's too small to be of any use to me.
The body is a nice size and texture, with aggressive gunstock checkering machined in. The pocket clip attaches via two Torx (T-6) screws, and allows for a bezel-down carry. It can be removed, but not moved to any other position. It's just fine as far as tightness and placement: about 3/4" of the light sticks out of the pocket when inside.
The overall quality is good on this one: O-rings where they should be, no splotched or chipped anodizing, no gouges in the knurling, no machining marks, the metal is thick enough to not dent on the first few drops, nothing loose that's not supposed to be, none of the stuff you find on the cheap China lights you get at the dollar store.
For ten bucks, buy a few. Stash one in your backpack, one in your car, one in your gym bag, etc.
These are some of the best flashlights you can get for the price.
A little background:
Most cheap zoom flashlights use an aspheric lens. This is basically a magnifying glass that sits above the LED and is mounted on a sliding bezel. In flood position, the lens is retracted close to the top of the LED. This typically gives a wide even circle of light. There may be rings or other beam artifacts caused by reflections inside the light. In spot mode the bezel is extended away from the LED, placing the LED on the focal point of the lens. Properly focused this will project a sharp image of the emitter and dramatically increases throw (measured in lux). The downside of this mechanism is that much of the light coming out of the LED doesn't hit the lens is absorbed into the sides of the bezel. This results in a large decrease in total light emitted (measured in lumens). Sometimes 50% or more of the lumens are lost.
Zoomable Coast flashlights use LED Lenser's "reflector lens" style of of optic. This is composed of a plastic TIR (total internal reflection) reflector with a small aspheric moulded into the center. The TIR has a large pocket in the underside for the LED to extend into. Rather than being mounted on the standard 14mm or 16mm flat circuit board (called a "star") the LED in the Coast is mounted on a tiny 6mm x 8mm star that sits on a small post. This allows the LED to be inside the pocket of the TIR in both flood and spot modes.... the result is zero loss of lumens regardless of mode.
The Coast HP1 caught my eye for a couple reasons: (1) it's very small for an LED Lenser type light, and (2) it's cheap! At just $10, it's much cheaper than other similar Coast or LED Lensers. And it's size and price range of the Sipik 68 or other budget lights.
My impressions of the beam:
The flood mode is nearly 90 degrees wide.... much wider than the flood mode from any of the cheap aspherics... over twice as wide as the beam from a Sipik 68. This is a very good thing as a wide beam illuminates more. The beam shape is also perfect. It's a uniform circle with no defects or rings.
The spot mode is interesting. It focuses to a much brighter small blurry circle. However, unlike other zoom lights the HP1 still maintains a respectable amount of spill even in spot mode. The result is quite pleasant: It's much like the beam you'd get from a conventional fixed focus reflector light with a small emitter. Lux isn't as high as in a Sipik 68, but in many ways this throw beam is more pleasant and useful for medium range use. As expected there is no loss of lumens in spot mode.
Output: The light's maximum output is rated less than 100 lumens on AA and 220 lumens on 14500. It was ok... comparable in brightness to a typical budget light. Not noticeably brighter though.
I took it apart to take a look inside. I was very impressed with what I found. Internal construction is far better than on a Sipik 68 or other cheap zoomable light. Everything was very well made and fitted and looked like what would be found on a much more expensive light. Construction quality was loads better than on a typical budget zoom flashlight.
Some interesting notes:
1. The LED is a cool-white CREE XPE. This is the same LED used in most similar-sized budget zoom lights, like the current generation Sipik 68.
2. The star is made of copper. This is considered to be much better than the aluminum stars most other budget lights have because copper conducts heat away from the LED better than aluminum.
3. The star had what looked like Arctic Silver 5 thermal grease underneath. Again much better than most budget lights which have no thermal grease.
4. Very smooth zooming mechanism courtesty of 2 well-placed and well lubricated o-rings.
5. The switch is a forward clicky with momentary. The light has only 1 mode.
6. The anodizing is flawless. It looks like what you'd find on a premium brand like Fenix. However, I expect that it's actually Type II and not the better Type III hard anodized. This means it should look good to start, but will probably wear faster than the finish on premium lights.
7. The battery compartment has a spring at each end. This provides more shock protection for the battery and is feature usually found only on premium lights.
Overall, I'm very impressed with this light. Highly recommended.
