Purchasing a Flashlight

You can either follow this link, or click the image in the upper right-hand corner of this page to purchase your rugged, super-bright Brightex flashlight.

Installation and Operation

Important Note: The "+" and "-" on the AAA adaptor relate to the polarity of the entire adaptor and they do not relate to the direction of the batteries which are placed inside

Place the AAA batteries correctly oriented inside the AAA adaptor. Make sure that the flat side of the battery ("-") is facing the spring inside the adaptor (see picture). One spring is located on the "+" side of the adaptor and two springs are located on the "-" side of the adaptor, so you have two batteries facing in one direction and the third battery facing in the opposite direction.

Then unscrew the cap at the top of the flashlight, where the switch is located and insert the adaptor (with the batteries inside it), into the flashlight, with the "+" side of the adaptor pointing inwards. Then simply close the battery cover tightly and you are ready to go.

You can install either a powerful 18650 rechargeable Lithium battery (Get a FREE High Capacity 18650 battery with our ZR1 Powerful lithium battery charger), or the super-high capacity 26650 rechargeable Lithium battery instead of the included AAA batteries. When using the Lithium batteries you will get the longest operating time out of your Brightex Flashlight. First unscrew the cap at the top of the flashlight, where the switch is located, and then depending on the type of battery you use do the following:

  • When using a 18650 battery, first insert the plastic tube provided, and then place the battery correctly oriented (the "+" of the battery facing inwards) inside the flashlight. Then simply close the battery cover tightly and you are ready to go
  • When using the 26650 battery, simply place the battery oriented correctly (the "+" of the battery facing inwards) into the flashlight and you’re good to go. Then simply close the battery cover tightly and you are ready to go

Your Brightex flashlight is designed to fit the high capacity 26650 rechargeable lithium battery, this unique feature will enable you to get the Ultra Bright 600 lumens out of your flashlight, while at the same giving you maximum battery life.

Be advised that there are many cheap low quality lithium batteries and charges sold on the market, (with or without flashlights). Since we believe our customers deserve only high quality products, we chose not to supply such batteries and charges with our flashlights, giving you the option to chose what fits you best.

With your ergonomically designed Brightex flashlight, it’s easy to switch between modes. When you turn the flashlight on, it automatically starts on the high light mode. Then, every half press of the switch will switch to the next light mode, in the following order:
  • High Light
  • Mid Light
  • Low Light
  • Strobe
  • SOS
When the switch is fully pressed, the flashlight will turn off and if you turn it back on in less than three seconds, the flashlight will switch on automatically to next mode.

For ease of use, your Brightex flashlight was designed to start in high light mode every time you turn it on (after it being off for more than 10 seconds.)

With your Brightex flashlight, you get a powerful x 2000 Zoom, allowing you to focus light exactly where you want it. Due to the powerful zoom you can even see the lines of the LED itself when zooming in. Operating the zoom feature is very simple, usinging only one hand, you push the lens inwards to zoom out or push it outwards to zoom in.

Features and Capabilities

Unfortunately, many flashlight manufacturers make false claims about how bright their lights are. One reason for this is that many flashlight companies unknowingly use fake CREE LEDs. When you buy a Brightex, you won’t have to worry about this. We use only Original US CREE LEDS to ensure consistently bright light. Because of this quality control, Brightex has one of the brightest and most reliable lights around.
Your Brightex flashlight is rated IPX5 on the waterproof rating scale, which means that it is suited for any weather conditions, including rain and snow. It cannot be submerged in water. If the inner part of the flashlight does get wet, it can often be fixed simply by removing the batteries and leaving it to completely dry out, before you attempt to use it again.

Your Brightex flashlight was designed to be ECO Friendly. It comes packed in a high quality paper box, eliminating the need to dispose of polluting plastic packaging. In addition this box can be used either for storing your flashlight or as a gift box for giving a flashlight to someone you care about.

By using the available rechargeable lithium battery options, you will no longer need to spend money on purchasing new AAA batteries or disposing of used AAA batteries.
