Focusing System One of the most unique features of the led lenser range is the focusing system. The focusing system uses an aspherical lens system which allows the beam pattern to be focused into a very fine pointed beam increasing the candela of the beam and giving a much longer throw beam and increased intensity at distance. The beam can also be pulled back to reduce the focus and spread the light giving a more even wide beam for more genera purpose use. This makes the X21R one of the most versatile search lights on the market today making one torch be able to be used as a search long distance throw light or a super intense spread work light.
Docking station The X21R comes supplied with a docking station that can be mounted to a wall in a building for quick access or also mounted in a vehicle which is ideal for emergency services or securing into a 4wd. The charging cord connects to the torch via magnetic charging so no need for usb ports or complicated connectors. The docking bracket is extremely durable and compact and has a quick release function so the torch can be accessed easily in an emergency. The torch also includes a function when it is docked and plugged in to switch on automatically if set when the power goes out. This function is extremely useful in blackouts so you can find the torch easily.
Types of use The Led Lenser X21R is ideal for anybody needing a long throwing search light throwing out to 800 meters but also wanting that ability to turn the torch into a wide beam angle torch for work or general purpose. The torch also has multiple output levels from 5000 lumens to a low of 200 lumens and can run from anywhere from 2 hrs on high to 150 hrs on low mode. The torch also can be set to several different strobe and signal modes including SOS and is set up on the torch in such a way that it will only come on if you set the switch for it to come on in signal mode. The torch measures around 400mm in length and weights around 1300g. It is not the lightest search light on the market but given its capabilities this is still an extremely small search light for what it can do.
