The new TX17R tactical rechargeable flashlight from Coast has some useful features for users, including their slide focus system. This lets you adjust the beam profile from a wide spread out floodlight, or to a narrower tighter beam which has a longer range.

Dual power options for this model, which is powered via the Coast rechargeable system, using the ZX850 Li-ion battery, or you can use the single use CR123 Li-ion cells adding additional convenience.
The TX17R is rated to IP54 for weather resistance, and is dust proof. Using a high quality machined aluminum body with a strong removable 2 position clip, it’s built to last and comes with Coast’s reassuring limited lifetime warranty.
It’s a pocket friendly size, with a length of 14.2cm (5.6”) and a weight of 153g (5.4oz).
Slide focus beam with a range of up to 234m
Coast are using their patented Slide Focus system, which lets you adjust the beam angle single handedly, with their push/pull mechanism. To prevent accidental movement, you can simply twist the head to the left to lock it in position, and turn it to the right to unlock it. A special TIR optical lens has been designed to create an even beam pattern at the widest floodlight or using the more focussed spotlight.
Three power levels are available, from a high of 12350 lumens, a medium or 500 lumens and a lower output 100 lumens.Power is via a ZX850 Zithion Li-ion 18650 rechargeable battery, with a capacity of 2600mAh and also has it’s own built in type C charging port.
Or you can charge the battery inside the flashlight with the concealed type C port, simply rotate the head to reveal the charge port, and when finished you can lock it down securely to prevent water/dirt entering. A charge level indicator lets you see the cell status of when it’s charging and completed.
Alternatively you can also use the CR123 cells (x 2 not supplied) as a back up or secondary power source.
Single Switch UI for ease of use
By using a recessed since switch you can quickly operate the flashlight, and cycle through the 3 power levels.
The body design also incorporates some fine knurling for superior grip even if the body is damp or wet, and has anti roll flat edges around the head.
