At just 5 1/4 inches in length and less than 7 ounces, the LED Lenser P7 offers up to 175 lumens of light from four AAA batteries—specifications that likely explain its position as the most popular model in the extensive line of German-engineered flashlights.
Like other LED Lenser models, the P7 features the company’s Advanced Focus System, a combination reflector-and-lens design unique enough to be awarded a U.S. patent. Not only does the system efficiently manage the light-emitting diode’s output, it works in concert with the flashlight’s mechanics to allow for smooth, one-handed transitions from close-range flood to long-range spot settings. Three brightness modes yield from one to 13 hours of run time.
The $70 P7’s watertight anodized aluminum housing ensures durability, and its modular design allows for factory replacement of parts. Other models in the LED Lenser line include headlamps and a variety of handheld lights, including rechargeables and a dive light. All are covered by a five-year warranty.
