Armytek Crystal Pro Review
General thoughts after a week of usage/size comparison/practicality/interesting things:
• So some of you may have seen my previous review of the Armytek Doberman Pro – my first Armytek product. But today we’re going to look at a new release from Armytek, the Crystal Pro. I see a few companies now with these ‘signal’ lights, but Armytek has taken things a step further with the Crystal Pro and has transformed it into a genuine multi-purpose light that can be used as a general EDC light, signal light, headlamp, bike, and brake light with an onboard accelerometer, work light, and keychain light.
• What’s included: the box is tiny, and I was surprised to find a full-sized headband, lanyard, and bike mount included. Demonstration of accessories. No USB charging cable is included. User manual included.
• Comparison with the RovyVon A7, E7, Nextorch UT11C – smaller keychain and clip-on lights.
Overall Construction, LED, lens, bezel and reflector
• External housing appears to be made of polycarbonate/ABS. Variety of mounting points for lanyards, and accessories. Overall, it feels sturdy and robust like it could handle drops easily. There is a large steel clip on the back that be used as a belt, pocket, cap, or bag strap clip. There are also cutouts that allow you to attach the included headband.
• There are 3X red LEDs and 1X white LED included. Two of the red LEDs do on activate unless you have the accelerometer enabled. The manual does not reveal any details of the LEDs. They look like LEDs found on low-powered flashlights, and not basic SMD LEDs that produce 10-15 lumens max. The previous Crystal model used ‘LXNZPL696 (white) + LXNZPL696 (red)’, however, had lower brightness ratings than the Crystal Pro. The LEDs are mounted directly on the board. Clear convex windows placed in front of LEDs.
• Internal battery 600 mAh lithium polymer cell. Micro-USB charging under a rubber gasket. 5 year warranty!
UI – modes
• Click once to turn on. Double-click to switch the LED source. Click and hold to cycle modes.
• Click and hold for 4 seconds to lock/unlock. When locked, there are no axillary LEDs indicating the light is locked.
• Triple-click to enable/disable the accelerometer. Demo – go to any red mode. The light detects deceleration and flashes all three red LEDs
Performance – total output, beam profile, longevity, practicality
• CCT, CRI, Ceiling bounce test
• Very flood beam – short range only
• Non-replaceable battery
• Plastic construction – still quite durable and perfectly acceptable for this price point. Also makes it very light when used as a headlamp.
• 220 lumens – very impressive for a light of this size but isn’t going to be comparable to a basic 14500 cell tube light.
• Micro-USB charging. Most lights have USB-C charging these days.
The Armytek Crystal Pro is a great example of a high-quality, budget-friendly, multi-purpose light. I love how light and versatile it is. You can use it around the house, camping, as an EDC light on your keychain, or as a brake light/front headlight for your bike.
