Several months ago I reviewed the ZeroHour XD Tactical flashlight thinking I would never need another, but the folks at ZeroHour have me rethinking that. They are running a Kickstarter campaign to develop a smaller and more feature laden flashlight and battery backup.
The ZeroHour Relic XR is their latest flashlight which is currently seeking funding through Kickstarter. It is a compact USB rechargeable tactical flashlight with variable control ring, tail-cap switch, and waterproof battery backup all-in-one. Their first flashlight, ZEROHOUR XD, set new standards for flashlights by offering the ultimate integration of light and power, and on that foundation they’ve built a new device that is smaller and lighter yet gives you even more control. If you head over to Kickstarter and pledge $140, it will lock you in to receive a Relic and backup battery which is due to ship in May.
In the near future, I’ll be looking for an evaluation unit for review and we’ll see how it stacks up to the original ZeroHour.
