Klarus XTQ1

Ultra-Quiet Tactical Flashlight

Klarus sure has been busy; introducing the innovative XTQ1, THE ultimate stealth LED flashlight. Just when you thought it couldn't get better, or should I say quieter, Klarus has gone ahead and outdone themselves. The XTQ1 is fitted with Klarus' patented ultra-quiet tactical switch system, which is completely flat and has no audible click for the optimum stealth experience. Measuring in at 5.4", the XTQ1 is constructed from aerospace aluminum alloy with a military grade hard-anodized finish, making it compact and lightweight, yet extremely durable. The XTQ1 is equipped with a crenelated bezel for those emergency situations and features a dual spring system for improved drop and shock resistance. The XTQ1 is a must-have for law enforcement, military personnel and even hunters.

Lighting Technology


The XTQ1 is able to output a massive 800 lumens from a CREE XM-L2 LED, with a maximum beam distance of up to 180 meters. Accessing the various output modes is done via Klarus' new tactical switch system. The unique flat metal switch features a large contact area and is very easy to operate. A long press of 1.5 seconds or more will turn the light on/off, while a double-tap will engage the strobe mode in any condition. Momentary-on can be activated by lightly pressing the switch when off, for those emergency situations. Also, the switch is indented to prevent from accidentally activating the light.


The XTQ1 can be powered by either two Lithium CR123A batteries or a single rechargeable Li-Ion 18650 battery. Depending on whether you choose primary or rechargeable batteries, you will get greater outputs or longer run times. Rest assured, you don't have to worry about improperly inserting the batteries, as reverse polarity protection will prevent from damaging the light. Also, the ZTQ1 is IPX-8 waterproof, so submerging the light in water up to 2 meters will not damage the battery or the light.

Great Extra Light for the Sale Price of $25, but...
July 25, 2016
Other reviewers have pretty much already hit the nail on the head with observations regarding the nature of the tail switch and modes of operation. The light's 'menu' is awkward and different enough from most lights of this type that if you don't use it regularly, you may well forget how to work it. The having to hold the switch to activate/deactivate it makes it hard to really get short momentary use out of it. I can see why Klarus discontinued it.
That being said, it is a well-built, quality light that also looks great and the output is very good, like other Klarus lights. Someone else said they wish Klarus made a replacement tail switch in a regular design. That would be great.
I do not regret buying the light. I got two of them on the sale price and they will be kept as spares and/or for go-bags.
Another issue that was raised was the fact that there is no memory, and the light comes on in highest output every time. This has been a 'feature' of many Klarus tactical lights from the get-go, and is ok if you are out on the street and will need it to come on in the high mode every time, like a policeman or power company worker might. It is awkward otherwise. It precludes using this light for your night stand - way too bright for in the house on the high setting (it will blind you if you wake up and turn this on in the dark). The others I own fit into the same category, but this one has the added detractor of the having to hold down the switch to activate/deactivate. I have a Terralux TT4 which also comes on in high mode every time and has virtually the same switch as the other Klarus lights like the XT11. Such lights are relegated to outdoor use only, or for very large indoor spaces like a warehouse, etc.
Since this light is discontinued it's a moot point, but if you come across them for cheap price and you want it for your only light, do not buy it for keeping in your nightstand. Think of it as a high-powered outdoor light. I will find a use for it, as I said above, but it will not likely be a light I will regularly use unless something happens to all my other ones and this is all I have left. It's a keeper for the price, but there are many others I would rather recommend, including others by Klarus.
  • Quality construction
  • Good bright light
  • Good beam shape
  • Small and light
  • Attractive finish and design
  • Common size will fit some holsters head is a little large though which might make it difficult for others
  • Irritating and time-consuming switch/mode operation
  • Always comes on in high mode

July 10, 2016

This is the first non Fenix flashlight I've owned,not to bad so far. I bought another one for my girlfriends bugoutbag.Dont forget to buy a box of the of the Titanium cr123 batteries to go with it.
  • SUPER BRIGHT,easy to use,takes the same batteries I already have,quite,well made!
  • None so far

Cool concept, UI could be better
May 3, 2017
Great light. I love the full power momentary option. The quiet switch was a good idea. I wish it took a longer press or a tailcap turn for constant on. Press and hold for three seconds is odd to turn it constant on. I found that I could press and hold for normal momentary use for more than 3 seconds and still want to turn it off quickly. Shouldn't have to press and hold for three seconds to turn it off.

Klarus XTQ1
January 12, 2017
The quiet click does not seem like it has much utility. The recessed tail cap is more of a bother than what it is worth. I do not worry about accidental activation. The recess makes it difficult to activate.
Great light for every day carry

  • Great beam throw with broad illumination, easy to use, rechargeable
