Flashlights are as popular as ever, with manufacturers enticing users with their latest offering of both power and portability. This is exactly what Unilite have brought out with the UK-F2 flashlight. It delivers a robust performance, with a 375 Lumen output from its CREE LED, sending the beam 175 metres in range. It’s this beam power, along with the 3 further diming and 8Hz flash function, which gives this torch the ability to be used in a multitude of different applications. When a mode has been selected using the tactical switch, the F2 has the neat feature of a Focuser. This essentially means you can switch between a spread flood light and a focused spot beam, all depending on where you are using it.
Ensuring a torch is constructed in the right way is just as important as the LED used on the end of it. A failure in this department, using a sub-standardly constructed torch, can see them fail at the vital moment, potentially putting the user at risk. The way in which the UK-F2 circumnavigates this, is by providing an aluminium housing for the torch. This proves to be the perfect encasement to keep the torch secure against even the most heavy-handed operator. In addition to this, the F2 is IP66 rated, essentially giving it full protection against any dust and also high levels of protection against the fullest sprays of water.
When using the torch, it has a sleek design which means it will grip comfortably into your palms with a perfect weight. This aids to its overall performance, as it means it can be used for long periods of time, unhindered. The addition of a safety nylon wrist strap keeps the torch extra secure and prevents it from being lost in use.
As handheld torches go, the UK-F2 is superbly balanced. It has the right blend of power, portability and build quality, which gives it the edge over comparable torches of its class and is a beacon of modern torch development.
