Design and functions

The MecArmy Sgn1 is made of zinc alloy and is available in 3 Colors: Black, gray and Stonewashed. I was sent the gray version of this Mini USB flashlight.

This flashlight is an awkward rectangular light with a large metal buckle built into the end that allows you to attach it to a small carabiner, key ring, lanyard, etc.

There is a large rubber knob on the top that controls the light and grooved sides that provide a good grip.

It always starts in Low mode, which is 5 lumens. In this mode, it can work up to 10.2 hours at full charge. Press the power button and it will light up in medium mode, which is 50 lumens. It can work in medium mode up to 2.8 hours.

Another Press puts it in high mode, which is 220 lumens. In this mode, the battery lasts 58 minutes. One last press puts it in Turbo mode, which is obviously the brightest mode at 530 lumens, and the battery should last about 55 minutes. In the image above, you can see each mode, with the first image showing how it looks when the light is off.

Final Thoughts

Small flashlights like these tend to be expensive, so it’s good to see a sub flashlight with a sturdy metal housing at this price. Add to that that it is rechargeable, so you don’t need to buy small expensive batteries and the MecArmy Sgn1 USB rechargeable EDC flashlight will be a worthy addition to your collection of useful EDC equipment.
