Here we have the AYL TC80 flashlight for review, courtesy of the good folks at AYL. This model includes an adjustable beam accomplished by sliding the head of the unit to go from a wide spread to farther shooting pinpoint. Also included is a dual purpose set of LED’s in the handle. To access this, you slide the handle open.
The first mode will give you a nice work area spread of light. This works great with the magnetic base as you can secure it to something metal with the light pointing to the area you need illuminated, and you’ll light up your work area hands-free. For illustration purposed, I pointed the light down to get the photo as it can be rather blinding.
The next mode is a flashing distress beacon. This will flash a set of red LED’s on and off to alert passerby’s that you’re in need of help, or could serve as a warning to other drivers if you’re parked on the side of the road in a poorly lit area.
Overall, the build on this flashlight is very nice. It’s crafted of aluminum, coated in black, and feels nice in the hand. Changing modes is as simple as lightly depressing the power button. The biggest quirk with this one is that when you power it off, it tends to power on in a different mode than the last used mode. This is really the only thing I dislike about the flashlight.
This unit is powered by four AAA batteries. The batteries go into the handle, and do not have a sleeve that holds the batteries in like the previously reviewed AYL flashlight. This is a major improvement in that when you shake the flashlight, or when bouncing during a stroll, it doesn’t cycle through the different modes.
Overall, this is a great flashlight that feels durable, and is very practical, and I would definitely recommend it.
