Nextorch T10L Review: is this the best tactical LEP flashlight?
I reviewed the Nextorch T10L tactical LEP flashlight. Does this light measure up to its claims of 500 lumens and 1-kilometer beam distance? Watch my video to find out. This light has a unique tactical switch that combines a mode selection ring.

Nextorch T10L: Video Transcript
Build quality, and disassembly:
Military-grade construction – anti-rolling, the best anodization I’ve seen on any flashlight. Extremely durable. Feels more like a professional tool than just a flashlight.
Unable to disassemble. Why would you anyway?
LED, Lens, Bezel, and Reflector:
Shine through LEP module – it has a warmer beam compared to my L10 Max and T20L. Convex lens – no glass covering/reflector.
Special bezel feature: ceramic beads on stainless steel bezel-breaking glass.
Size and comparison/retention and carry:
This is pocketable. It’d be a bit bulky in a jeans pocket though.
Compared to others: L10Max, FC12, IF22a
The user interface, modes, and operation:
Here’s the exciting part. This light has a patented tactical system that’s featured in a few models including this one. The ring allows you to select modes: tactical, l, m, h, and strobe. But the impressive thing is the button itself. Half pressed in any mode activates turbo, and fully pressed activates strobe! Great self-defense feature.
I’ve never seen anything like it before. It’s so intuitive and easy to use.
Batteries and charging:
5000mAh 21700 cell (it has a charging port). Flat-top cells don’t fit in this light due to the length of the battery tube.
Performance (beam profile, lumens, and run times)
17442 lux @ 5m
= 433050 cd
5100-5200K. Noticeably warmer beam than my other LEPs. See my website for full details.
What I liked/didn’t like:
Innovative and unique in a way that adds unique value where most other flashlights do not.
Tactical ring/switch – I can see why this system won the red dot award in the past. Intuitive and easy to use.
SS strike bezel with 3 ceramic beads
Premium materials and construction
Considerations: glass lens would have been nice on the front. Other than that, it’s perfect.
If you’re looking for a military-grade tactical LEP flashlight, this is the one to get. Nextorch has made no compromises, and you get all the bells and whistles. Highly recommended.
