Klarus RS16 Upgraded Rechargeable Flashlight

Convenient & Practical EDC, Now with 500-Lumen Output

The Klarus RS16 rechargeable flashlight has been upgraded from its original 380-lumen High mode to an impressive 500 lumens! The design and functionality of this everyday carry light has not changed - it still features a small 3.76-inch length and a versatile selection of six output modes. Additionally, the Klarus RS16 rechargeable flashlight is easy to power, using its magnetic USB charging port. One side of the cable features a self-locating magnet that automatically connects the cable to the side of the flashlight. The other end is a standard USB, which allows you to recharge the internal battery wherever a USB port is available. As an added bonus, the magnetic charging port doubles as a power indicator - glowing red when in progress and green when fully charged. A full charge typically requires three hours. The Klarus RS16 rechargeable flashlight runs on one 16340 Li-ion battery (included), which can be charged internally within the light. When you don't have access to a USB charging port, don't fret; the Klarus RS16 can also run on one single-use non-rechargeable CR123A (sold separately). Please note that the CR123A battery is not rechargeable and cannot be charged within the light.

More Than Just an EDC!

The Klarus RS16 rechargeable flashlight is designed for everyday carry; however, it offers more than the average handheld light. In addition to this six output modes and magnetic charging cable, this LED flashlight can also be utilized as a hands-free work light, by simply attaching the magnetic charging port to any steel surface, such as the hood of your car. If you don't have access to a magnetic-receptive surface, you can also use the standard UNC 1/4' - 20-threaded mounting point, located on the tail cap, to mount the light to a tripod. The Klarus RS16 flashlight is also equipped with an orange peel texture, which radiates a broad flood beam for effortless nighttime searching.

The perfect edc light!
September 18, 2016
Given its size this thing puts out an amazing amount of light! All of my friends have been blown away! Plus it has crazy long run times at the lower light levels from a rechargeable battery that only had 650mah! That is insane. I actually charge it using my spare phone battery pack charger that I use to charge my cell phone on the go. And it will recharge from almost dead in about 1 and 1/2 hours. I carry it always on me in the high quality holster it comes with. I have some higher capacity batteries on order which should increase run time by as much as 25 percent!
ProsIt's just plain awesome! Get one!
ConsThe one downside is that when you are in moonlight mode in order to turn the light off you have to hold down on the button. This for a moment puts the light into turbo before turning off. That is absolutely blinding when your eyes are oriented to the dark. The only way around this is to make sure you cover the lens for a couple of seconds as you turn the light off. I wrote to Klarus and there is no way around this. But that is a minor nit pick on such a tremendous torch.

Fantastic Light!
September 13, 2016
After much searching for several months I decided to pull the trigger and pick up the Klarus RS16. So far I have loved it! Its water proof, has a moonlight mode, is rechargeable. And has a very long run time even with such a small battery. It tail stands which is a must for me, and the recharging wire actually jumps to the charging port on the light when it even comes close to it. Its well constructed and very small. The absolute perfect EDC light if you ask me. With a blinding 500L output all the way down to .5 lumen. It comes with a very nice travel pouch, lanyard, and extra O rings. I have always been a Fenix and 4 Sevens man up until this point. I was looking for a small, versatile, and bright light that I could recharge. I think this is the ticket. The one minus is that not just any micro USB cord will recharge the light. You either need to take the battery out and charge using a standard lipo charger, or use the Klarus proprietary cable. Its a great cable...but I only have 1...and I have lots and lots of USB cables. So it would just have been nice to not have to always remember to have the unique charging cable with me. That being said though...I charge the light using the same spare battery pack that I use to charge my cell phone. And it works great. All and all A+ for the Klarus RS16
Very good EDC light!

I was skeptical about an EDC light with rechargeable battery, but couldn't resist giving this little gem a try since it can use regular 123 battery. It is a well built unit. Package comes with lanyard and recharging cable. This light is super bright for its size. I swapped out the 16340 battery with one 123 to compare function, and although not as bright, the light level is still more than sufficient, perfect for a backup plan if recharging is not possible. I like it so much, just placed order for another one.

Super-Duper pocket flashlight
January 3, 2018
I have owned many flashlights. This one is perfect. Very nice four-levels. The lowest light level is great for not disturbing other sleepers. The highest level is serious illumination. The USB recharge cable attaches to the Magnetic hanger and glows red and then green. Definitely waterproof. I cannot recommend this light any higher.

No lockout feature
December 24, 2017
No pocket clip. No pouch/holster. Instructions state “Loosen body when light not used to avoid accidentally switching light onâ€. However, my light stays on until the body is totally disconnected. I like to carry lights of this size in my pockets but don’t like fires in that area so this is a deal breaker for edc. Could leave it in Moonlight, 0.5 lumen, but disappointing anyway.
ProsOverall quality
ConsNo lockout feature
