ZeroHour Relic XR = Powerful flashlight + portable battery bank
Quite a while back we had the ZeroHour flashlight that doubles as a battery bank that was quite impressive. Now, ZeroHour Relic XR, the next version of the gadget accessory is up on Kickstarter platform for funding and has already surpassed the funding goal by almost 6 times with more than 3 weeks still left to go. This comes as no surprise as ZeroHour flashlight also got funded quite well last year. ZeroHour Relic XR comes with USB charging port, waterproof protection (to I meter depth) and adjustable illumination to make it an accessory worth having on adventure and hiking trips. You can charge your mobile devices like smartphones and DSLR cameras with its battery bank.
The flashlight is made from aircraft grade aluminum and the 1000 lumen output comes courtesy Cree XLamp XP- LED. You can choose the light brightness level from 0-1000 lumens and Strobe or SOS mode. Add to that the 3400mAh lithium-ion battery power, and you’ve got the one adventure accessory that you’ll never forget.
Noticeable improvements to the flashlight include tail-cap switch, anti-roll clip, removable stainless steel head, tail bezel and tail cap holes for paracord support. This means support for standard 1” bike mounts, weapon mounts, belt holsters and the ability to tuck it to your backpack or pocket since it weighs just 6 ounces.
For ones who’ll pledge $130 USD on Kickstarter, the ZeroHour Relic XR flashlight battery bank is going to be a good deal. However if you wait for the retail version, the expected price is going to be a notch higher.
