Jetbeam RRT01 Raptor XP-L 950lm In-depth review, Pros and Cons
The Jetbeam RRT01 Raptor XP-L (RRT01RX) released in 2019. It uses Cree XP-L HD LED, SMO reflector and 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 950 lm output, 7200 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 170 m.
The RRT01 Raptor XP-L flashlight is an essential tools for emergency preparedness. In situations like natural disasters or blackouts, when electricity is unavailable, a flashlight becomes crucial for navigating dark areas, locating supplies, or signaling for help. Without mode memory, each time you turn on the RRT01 Raptor XP-L, it will start from the default or first mode in the sequence. It has a strobe function, which is one of the most effective self defense tools available.

Jetbeam RRT01 Raptor XP-L (RRT01RX) specifications
|Name||RRT01 Raptor XP-L|
Flashlights enable you to navigate in the dark, locate supplies, signal for help, or provide comfort and security in challenging circumstances.
|Body diameter||24.5 mm|
|Head diameter||25.7 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 72.5 g flashlight would be considered extremely lightweight for a handheld flashlight. The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for RRT01 Raptor XP-L flashlight. The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L HD LED|
|Color temperature||4000 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
|Switch||mechanical rear, rotary front|
The emitter of RRT01 Raptor XP-L manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The smooth reflector is typically used in flashlights where long-range illumination is a priority, such as searchlights or thrower flashlights. By minimizing light scattering and maximizing light directionality, the smooth reflector can produce a tighter and more concentrated beam that reaches greater distances.
The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The RRT01 Raptor XP-L uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. This is particularly helpful in situations where you need to hold or manipulate objects with one hand while using the flashlight with the other hand.
The RRT01 Raptor XP-L has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. This feedback helps users confirm that the switch has been activated or deactivated, providing a reassuring sense of control and awareness. The rear switch of RRT01 Raptor XP-L is designed to be rugged and durable, capable of withstanding harsh conditions and repeated use.
The 950 lm output of RRT01 Raptor XP-L provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 7200 cd, the RRT01 Raptor XP-L flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer distances. The throw distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The stated throw distance typically indicates the point at which the brightness falls below a specified threshold, such as 0.25 lux. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm.
The RRT01 Raptor XP-L flashlight with ramping mode has a user interface that enables you to control the brightness level by pressing and holding a button. The RRT01 Raptor XP-L is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.
|Battery||1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery|
The Jetbeam RRT01 Raptor XP-L flashlight is powered by 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery. The RRT01 Raptor XP-L doesn't have charger port. A charger port is a designated connection point or interface where you can plug in a charger to recharge the flashlight's battery. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
The RRT01 Raptor XP-L has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The RRT01 Raptor XP-L flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
|Package contents||18350 battery|
2 x spare o-rings
spare rubber cover
Obtaining a flashlight with an included battery saves you the time and effort of searching for a compatible battery or waiting for a separate battery to arrive. When the flashlight is clipped to a suitable location, it can be angled or positioned to provide hands-free illumination. The lanyard of RRT01 Raptor XP-L helps protect the flashlight from accidental damage by preventing it from falling or hitting the ground. Regularly replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps maintain the overall durability and performance of the flashlight.
The performance of the Jetbeam RRT01 Raptor XP-L flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
