Focus+_110_Handheld_Flashlight_Review

The NiteRider Focus+ 110 is a compact and powerful flashlight, perfectly sized to take anywhere. A reliable flashlight will always find its use at home, around the car, or on an overnight outdoor trip. Focus+ 110 is a great choice for any of these scenarios because it packs plenty of power in a very convenient package.

With an output of 110 lumens, this flashlight shines a strong light on the objects around you. It also makes you easily visible in the dark, if you’re trying to catch someone’s attention. It comes with three different light levels and a slider ring that allows you to choose between a spot or a flood beam. About this, it has a maximum range of about 115 feet, which is more than enough for everyday use.

One of the things that separate the Focus+ 110 from the competition is its excellent battery. NiteRider equips it with a rechargeable 320mAh Li-Ion battery that can deliver up to 16 hours of use (on low) and up to 2 hours on max power. This is an integrated battery that charges via USB, so it’s very easy to charge it almost anywhere.

NiteRider has been making high-quality technical lights for a long time, and they continue improving the materials and technology with every model. The Focus+ 110 is made of strong aluminum that makes it resistant to drops, and it’s IP66 certified (resists dust and high-pressure water).

User Experience

Materials and Construction: The Focus+ 110 is made of aircraft-grade aluminum, which gives it impressive strength. Customers say that it easily withstands outdoor use, and that dropping it or getting it wet won’t cause any harm. As we’ve pointed out in the specs, the casing will protect it from drops from up to 2 meters. It comes with an IP66 rating, meaning that it’s resistant to dust particles, as well as high-pressure water.

NiteRider also equips this waterproof flashlight with a tough lens that has the required strength to tackle all the challenges. All of this makes the Focus+ flashlight suitable for any activity ranging from everyday use, work around the car, to even hiking at night. On top of this, the manufacturer gives you a limited lifetime warranty, and their great customer service will help you if you encounter any problems.

Battery: The battery life on the Focus+ 110 is top-level, and can easily compete with any other rechargeable flashlight that you come across. Users say that it can easily deliver the specified 16 hours of runtime if you use it on low, which is a pretty admirable result.

It charges through a micro USB port, and the charging cable is included in the package. People agree that this is very convenient since it allows you to charge it on your PC, through an outlet, and even in your car. NiteRider equips all of its models with circuit protection to prevent overcharging battery damage, and there is a small LED indicator that lights up green when the flashlight is ready to use again.

Performance: This model is equipped with a 3W white LED that can deliver 110 lumens. Even though it’s not the strongest when compared to some other LED flashlights, users say that the light is very intense, especially for a smaller flashlight. When you set it to spot beam mode, it has the ability to cast the light up to 115 feet.

However, don’t forget that the battery drains much faster when the flashlight works on high, as this can be important if you don’t have any place nearby to charge it.

Operation: Everyone who has tried the Focus+ 110 says that it’s really easy to use. It has a 3-mode switch that allows you to choose between low, medium, and high levels. Furthermore, the slider ring that switches between spot and flood beam is very easy to move, even with only one hand. As we’ve pointed out earlier, NiteRider equips this model with a pen clip and a magnet for securing it. Users really like these features and say that they give the Focus+ even more versatility in use.

Size and Weight: People who use the Focus+ 110 regularly say that the size and weight are just right and that it sits comfortably in your hand. With a length of only 5 inches, it’s similarly sized as many pocket flashlights, so it’s convenient to carry in your pocket.

For those of you who are always outdoors, backpackers and hikers say that they don’t even notice it in their hiking backpacks. This model weighs less than 2 ounces, making it an excellent choice for outdoor enthusiasts who are trying to keep gear weight as low as possible.

Pros:

  • Water- and dustproof body
  • Great battery life and fast charging time
  • Attaches to clothes or objects
  • Easily adjustable beam
  • Compact and lightweight to carry

Cons:

  • Lower lumen output and range

  • Price: 90% – Even though the Focus+ 110 costs slightly more compared to most flashlights, we feel that it easily justifies the cost. You can be sure you’re getting a tough and well-made product that is going to last for many years. Besides, the fact that it comes with a rechargeable battery makes it more cost-effective too, since you won’t have to spend money on disposable batteries.
  • Material: 100% – The aircraft aluminum used for the Focus+ series really stands up to the task. The flashlight is light, but at the same time very strong and resistant to damage.

As we mentioned earlier, the Focus+ 110 comes with an IP66 rating, which guarantees that it can easily handle some dirt or water.
  • Design: 100% – In addition to being beautiful, this flashlight is designed to be highly functional too. The power button and the slider are convenient for single-handed use, which is certainly a plus in situations where you have your hands full. Thanks to the pocket clip and the magnet base, you can even attach the light to an object or a metal surface next to you, giving your hands all the freedom they need.
  • Overall: 97% – The Focus+ 110 leaves a pretty good impression, and we have plenty of nice things to say about it.
