Pretty impressive set of features though not delighted by interface of buttons and switches.
As far as beam - it has a good hotspot with a usable amount of spill. It is the brightest single cell light I have found thus far. I have compared it with my Nitecore SRT7 which is also a single cell 18650 light and has a 960 lumen rating. The SRT7 has been with me most days since it is reasonably compact and had a great rotary dial interface where I can control the output easily. It was bright and had good throw. The RS20 by comparison has a little more throw with a slightly more defined hotspot. The High on the RS20 is higher and the Moonlight mode is also a little brighter than the lowest setting from the SRT7. The RS20 claims a moonlight run time of 1646 hours or 68 days!!!!
The RS20 is about 1/2 inch longer than the SRT7 though the reflector is considerable larger in diameter. It will not fit in my flashlight pocket though does come with a holster.
If there was one single flashlight to have in a household, the RS20 is perfect. It has so many uses. Combined with its super bright primary light, and diffused secondary, this is easily a go-to-light for countless situations. The magnetic charging system is exemplary. Strong connection, easy to see red or green charging ring from even across the room. The hot spot and throw is ideal for most situation, very well defined. Please see video for full hands on review and interface testing. I would definitely recommend this light.
The proprietary battery is the only problem. After cleaning both sides of the battery I assembled the light tried all the functions for a moment, Then I used a Samsung galaxy tablet USB power adapter to charge it up I let it charge overnight, the (RED) indicator light was still on so I let it charge for another 8 hours (RED) light still on, so I removed the battery inserted it in the opposite direction within 3 minutes the light turned (GREEN FULL CHARGE) so I removed the battery again reversed the ends put back on the charge waited over a hour light stayed (RED) again. Reversed the battery again light turned (GREEN) again, I even removed the battery again waited 2 minutes did not reverse the battery reassembled put back on the charger light turned (GREEN) within 2 minutes. There's a problem with one of my battery (end contacts). Other then that I really like the light and would recommend to a (BEST) friend.
