Klarus RS11 Rechargeable LED Flashlight

Next Generation

The Klarus RS11 XM-L2 Flashlight is the newest and upgraded version of the original RS11. The RS11 combines both the rugged durability of their tactical flashlights with the practicality of rechargeable flashlights. This flashlight fits nicely in your hand and is finished with a hard anodized aluminum. Klarus left what worked great and upgraded all the essentials to make to the new RS11 an all around better flashlight.

Lighting Technology

The upgraded RS11 is equipped with the latest and greatest XM-L2 from CREE giving you a maximum output of 930 lumens on high mode. The RS11 can also run up to 260 hours when put on low mode. Its textured orange peel can project a beam up to 254 meters and features three brightness modes and a disorienting strobe. The RS11 automatically memorizes the last output level used, so you don't have to worry which mode the RS11 will turn on with.


The RS11 is powered by either 2 CR123A batteries or a single 18650 battery(included with purchase). A great feature of this flashlight is that it is rechargeable and can be charged with the included charging cable, which magnetically attaches to the tail of the light. An illuminated ring at the tail of the light displays red or green if the batteries are low or fully charged.

Over all it's great. Super bright and long lasting. I purchased new in January 2015 only up until now I have begone to have an issue. The supplied USB charging cable has failed so I will need to replace. Also, I'm still trying to get used to button operation in emergency situations. That's a user improvement as this is my first tactical flash light.
  • Over all it's well worth the investment. It's super durable light weight but feels like a tank. Beautifully constructed. There's everything to like about this device.
  • Just the charging cable failure after almost 2 years worth of mild use.

Really nice light

The switches feel like a high quality piece of machinery. Bright clear beam. It is nice that the front bezel is removable. Will keep one in every vehicle and give a few out for Christmas this year.
  • Quality feel and finish

Overall quite pleased with this light. Great output. USB chargeable.
  • Rechargeable, power output, battery life
  • Buttons not very tactile - hard to find in the dark with gloved hands.
  • Experienced 1 recurring malfunction - when on high for extended periods, the main button becomes inoperable and I have to unscrew the body slightly to turn unit off.

Klarus RS11 Rechargeable LED Flashlight - 930 Lumens Upgrade model
March 8, 2015
A great light! Compares favorably with SureFire lights of same physical size. Has great runtimes with the 18650 rechargeable battery. Easy to cycle through the various illumination levels with the side switch, and the second (reddish-orange) side switch automatically activates the strobe from any level, including OFF. The memory function means no surprises when you turn the light on; it is at the same level as the last time you used the light.

A good all-round light for sports, hunting, LEO and household. On a recent trip we stayed in a motel that didn't have any kind of night lights in the room, so I stood the RS on its tail at the lowest illumination setting in the bathroom and left the door open a couple of inches; perfect solution for the lack of lighting in the room.

At the lowest level we could have left the RS11 on for the whole time we were there and it still would have had plenty of juice for the max beam output without recharging. The magnetic charge cable works like a charm. Such a good light, I gave one to my grand son as a birthday gift.
  • Good selection of lighting levels
  • Easy cycle through light levels
  • Memory of last light level used
  • Can tail stand for area illumination in doors
  • Great throw for such a compact light
  • Good corona around the main beam for area coverage
  • Good corona for LEO situational awareness
  • Recharging of battery while in light is a good convenience feature (with included non-button top battery)
  • In a pinch you can us button top 18650 batteries in the light, but have to remove them to recharge
  • Haven't found any yet

How long does it take to recharge? While not in use, can you leave it on the charger once charged?
1 Answer
The time varies as there are 2 variables when charging a battery, the capacity of the battery and the charge current of the charger. Leaving the light on the charger after being fully charged should not harm the light, should you have a smart charger that stops charging when full.
