NEXTORCH L10 MAX in 2022: 1500m beam? The BEST value LEP Laser Flashlight!
In this video, I review the Nextorch L10 Max, a powerful laser flashlight that offers enormous throw with portability. This light was provided to me by Nextorch for review. I was not paid for this review. All opinions are my own.
I measured 447,125 Candela from 17885lx @ 5m on high = 1337m Throw (With included Nextorch Battery @ 4.2V). Measurements obtained from Opple Light Master Pro.

• This is the most fun I’ve had with a flashlight! I find myself opening my balcony door just to shoot it out every and then. It always shocks me how far it throws and I love that you can see the beam clearly in the night sky. I know for some people, a light with an enormous throw and little spill might be impractical, but just for the fun/coolness factor alone, this light has gained a spot in my top 5.
• Fits all my requirements for an EDC flashlight. It’s easily pocketable at 15.5 cm and head diameter of 3.5cm, given you’re not wearing tight jeans. A clip would’ve been nice but it does come with an adjustable lanyard.
• Pairing this light with a set of 10×25 binoculars can be quite fun when using this light. It’s great for spotting, even at the lower modes.
What I liked:
• Throw – close to 1.5km throw! All in one small flashlight that you can fit in your pocket. 5-10 years ago, this would’ve been unthinkable. But it throws roughly the same distance as my Convoy L8, which is 3x larger.
• Value – Most LEPs are about $300+. Excellent value LEP for 150-$200 range. It outperforms the Fenix TK30 and Weltool W3 Pro – both throw 1200m and cost between $270-300.
• Small head – you can carry it around with you easily, and still get practical runtimes on high mode. There are smaller LEPs out there like the Lumintop Ant Man, Thor 1 – but they run on smaller 18350 and 14500 cells and have reduced throw/lumen figures.
• Outperforms spec sheet – I measured 447,125 candela from 5m on high. I had to wear my sunglasses indoors to run this test as it hurt my eyes to look at the spot on the wall.
• USB C charging and 21700 performance.
• Nextorch is a reputable brand – they supply lights for law enforcement – they need to be fit for duty. The L10 max has high-quality construction, anodization and looks like a premium light. 6061-T6 aluminium alloy. The switch is sturdy, though made of rubber/silicon and makes a solid ‘click’ when pressed.
• It took me a bit of time to get used to the UI. To turn on and off the light, you must hold down the switch for 2 seconds, and it always starts on high mode. I’d prefer if it had the usual double click for high/turbo and perhaps a lockout mode. This is just a personal preference and I think it’s handy that it stops the light from accidentally turning on.
The Nextorch L10 max is my first LEP flashlight and I have to say, I love this thing! This has got to be the coolest stealth thrower that I have. I found that I was justifying to myself before why I didn’t need one, and truth be told, I don’t… but man I think LEPs are the most fun you can get out of torches.
