It is also IP54 dust and water-resistant rated, allowing it to function in every day use and even in adverse conditions. The light has a run time of approximately an hour and 30 minutes on a single charge. One of the most notable features of this light is its simple recharging capability. Compatible with USB C chargers, the light can simply be plugged in and left until fully charged.
