Nextorch UT11C Review
General thoughts after a week of usage/size comparison/practicality/interesting things:
• So I’ve been getting into these ‘clip’ style lights lately as they’re much easier to carry around than most headlamps and are also very versatile as you can clip them to your belt or bag strap. For me, the UT11C is the perfect portable work light when I’m out filming videos or on the road. Nextorch markets this as a ‘rechargeable warning light’ as it also has a red/blue flashing light mode.
• Demonstration of UT11C clipped to hat. You get the instruction manual and USB-C charging port included.
Overall Construction, LED, lens, bezel and reflector
• ABS construction. I really like the versatility of the clip – I mainly clip it to the front of my bike helmet. The clip has a couple of protruding bits on the inside which stops it from being detached easily. It also allows you to swivel the light 180 degrees. Operated with one button – made of rubber and fairly large. There’s also a three-tier battery indicator next to the button. Internal 640mAh battery. Onboard USB-C charging port.
• COB LED array. Multiple LED chips mounted in direct contact with a substrate. 10x white LEDs with 3x red/3x blue LEDs. Recessed plastic lens.
UI – modes
• Very simple to operate. Press and hold to turn on and off. A fast single click will not activate the light – it will stay locked and display the battery level.
• Once on – you can cycle between low and high mode.
• Press and hold for longer than 3 seconds to activate the warning light mode (red/blue)
Performance – total output, beam profile, longevity, practicality
• CCT, CRI, Ceiling bounce test
• Very flood beam, unusual shape – it produces a thinner horizontal beam due to the arrangement of the LEDs. You get visibility into your peripherals. This is more of a short-range light.
• Non-replaceable battery.
• No moonlight mode.
• Wish it had a longer runtime on high mode – though 2 hours is pretty good for such a small light.
If you’re looking for a lightweight, multi-purpose light that you can use as a headlamp or emergency alert beacon, the UT11C is a fantastic option. When using it on my hat, I often forgot it was there as it’s so light.
