Product Overview

The Dorcy K2 LUXEON LED Flashlight is an aluminum-bodied, single LED flashlight that features a 120 lumen (manufacturer claim) output and a unique tailcap that incorporates an LED battery status indicator. The light uses a smooth reflector that focuses the light from the main LED to a satisfactory beam with a well-defined hotspot and adequate spill. Although the bezel can be unscrewed to change the beam pattern slightly, the light does not have any true focusing capability.

This compact and lightweight flashlight is powered by three (3) AAA alkaline batteries held in a specially-designed battery carrier. Activating the light is as simple as pressing the tail mounted switch, which features two LEDs of its own that reflect the power status of the batteries. The flat tail cap permits the light to stand on end for room illumination, and the bezel is designed to prevent the light from rolling when placed on a flat surface.

Impressions

Like most Dorcy brand lights we've handled, this light is reasonably well built and feels comfortable when held in the hand. Lighter in weight than it might appear, the light is finished in a HA (hard anodize) II coating that will provide reasonable protection from oxidation. The finish can be damaged by abrasive surfaces and we would expect it to wear under significant use.

The three-piece aluminum body is protected by O-rings at each connection point, and the bezel can be removed entirely to permit it to be used in 'candle-mode' for wide-area illumination. While Dorcy does not claim the light is water-resistant (at least not on the product packaging), we have no reason to believe the light won't withstand light exposure to rain or splashing.

The battery carrier that holds the three AAA batteries seems reasonably well made, and we observed no obvious flexing or distortion of the carrier when loading batteries. Unlike some lights that utilize a carrier, this light allows the carrier to be 'dropped in' without the need to line the carrier up with special notches or grooves. While we aren't big fans of battery carriers in general, we found no unusual disad
