Light, Bright, and Now Glowing Red
The HM65R Shadowmaster is a rethinking of the standard HM65R. The magnesium alloy body still provides a light weight for the durability, as well as good dissipation of heat. However, the 400 lumen floodlight has been removed, and in its place sits a 150 lumen red floodlight, while the main beam as been improved, from 1000 to 1200 lumens, to compensate for this. A red mode is an important function for those looking to operate in the dark without loss of night vision, without drawing attention to themselves, or without scaring off wildlife, which is often easily startled by white light.
Much of the rest of the lamp remains the same, being dust proof, as well as drop resistant and waterproof to 2m (for 30 minutes in the case of water). The 18650 battery can be charged via a USB Type-C slot on the device, or can be changed out for 2 cold-resistant CR123A batteries (which should not be charged).
The white light runs on 5 settings, the highest of which (1200 lumens) will run for 2 hours, and the lowest (50 lumens) for 40.
The red light has 4 settings, highest (150 lumens) will run for 4.5 hours, lowest (5 lumens) for 120 hours.
