Whether it's for night flying, finding that screw you just dropped at twilight racing, fishing, climbing, hiking or hunting (even work) we all need to shed a bit of light on things occasionally and this superb tactical flashlight is an outstanding way to do just that. What's more, with its 1100 Lumens of brilliant LED light and a range of up to 200m the A3 is sure not to disappoint.
The A3 accepts 18650 sized Li-ion batteries and has a Micro USB port, with water resistant cover, built into it so for easy charging, just it into any USB wall charger that you would use for a phone or similar device.
The SupFire A3 is made to IP67 standard which means it is resistant to water ingress to a maximum depth of 1m of water for up to 30 minutes and allows no ingress of dust. Making it perfect for wet weather and marine applications and with its 6061-T6 aluminium body is tough enough to take the abuse of being thrown into your tool box or dropped on the rocks while fishing.
These torches offer not only an incredibly bright, yet efficient light from their genuine Cree LED, but if intense illumination isn't necessary then a press on the blue function button offers you two milder options as well as SOS and a flashing strobe option for when you are using it as a bike light.

I previously purchased the flashlight shown in the pictures with the blue central button. I ordered another one and received what must be the new version with the silver metal central button. I was disappointed to find that they had removed the rear tail switch on the new version and now only have the central switch.I love this flashlight! It is VERY bright and it throws the beam farther than expected. I love that it is charged via usb. You cannot beat the price either, I would compare it to a higher end flashlight any day. I would definitely recommend this flashlight!The flashlight shows a very good design and quality and the light is really excellent.
To charge the flashlight with an usb cable you have to press the rear button and then will see a red light within the blue function switch.
After charging is completed, you will see a blue light.It only charges when you put the light on (press back button). Then you see a red charging light. It turns blue when fully charged.Is there some sort of light that lets you know its charging and when its finished?
