I review the RovyVon E30 Pro tactical EDC flashlight. It has a tactical function producing 3,500 lumens!

RovyVon provided me with a sample of this flashlight for review. I was not paid to make this video, nor have I held back on any negative opinions of this flashlight.

Rovyvon E30 Pro – Flat Tactical Flashlight? All-in-one tactical, EDC, multipurpose light Video Transcript

General thoughts after a week of usage/size comparison/practicality/interesting things:
• So there are a few of these flat-style EDC flashlights, but today I’m reviewing one that’s a bit different… the RovyVon E30 Pro. This is a light that combines multiple EDC features like auxiliary lights, with an impressive 3500-lumen tactical mode. With the included 3000 mAh battery, this is one of the few lights of this style that can handle a longer trip.
• What’s in the box? Lanyard, USB-C charging cable, spare USB-C port cover. I have the MAO version of this light which features red, white and UV aux LEDs. The black version has 3x white aux LEDs.
• Comparisons with Olight Arkfield Pro, Wurkkos HD01, Sofirn IF24

Overall Construction, LED, lens, bezel and reflector
• The first thing that sticks out to me is the coating – it’s a light grayish color that feels surprisingly grippy. Micro-arc oxidating coatings like these are uncommon in the flashlight industry and really makes this light stand out visually. The rectangular design is both easy to hold and pocket. It feels more comfortable than any of my tube lights, except for the smaller AA ones. Clip near the back for a tactical style carry – easy access to the turbo switch. There’s onboard USB-C charging too. Buttons are made of metal and separate the function of the various LEDs. Dual stage tactical switch + EDC mode switch. The side switch is recessed and operates AUX LEDs.
• Dual LEDs (maybe SST40s) in the head paired with dual TIR lens. There is also a proximity sensor in the head. Red, 4500K warm white, and 365nm UV. Four battery indicator lights.
• There is a 3000mAh battery in this light! Impressive considering how small it is. The Nitecore EDC27 has around half the capacity at 1700mAh.

UI – modes
• TAC – half press for turbo, full press for strobe
• EDC – double press for memory, single press from there to cycle ECO, LMH. From off – single press or hold for ECO.
• AUX – press once for white low, press again for high. Double press for red, single press for high, beacon, strobe.

Performance – total output, beam profile, longevity, practicality
• Ceiling bounce test, CRI, CCT
• Large, even hotspot with tons of spill to illuminate a wider area. Impressive throw for its size, esp. for a flat light.

• Non-replaceable battery – it’s high capacity though so should hold up longer than other options out there.
• Can’t deactivate the proximity sensor. This makes it less tactical in my opinion if a threat is close by. But it also makes it safer to store as there is no lock function. 3500 lumens will burn a hole in clothing easily.
• No magnet in tail/hands-free use. Would be hard to implement with the tactical switch.

I never thought I’d buy into this kind of flashlight – I’m more old school and still prefer tube-style lights, but this one is pretty amazing because it’s so versatile. On one hand, it has a 200+m range and 3500 lumen output which is more than enough for self-defense, but also has lower modes that are separated out for general EDC use + all these AUX modes which are useful for low light / extended use scenarios. I’m not a fan of some of these lights that have low-capacity batteries squeezed in there, so am glad this one is at least 3000mAh which is unusual. If you can deal with the considerations I mentioned before, I’d recommend it. It’s an excellent quality, do-it-all flashlight that is adaptable to almost any situation.
