Nebo iPROTEC Torch Range – Are these torches worth buying?

Over the past couple of months, I’ve had the opportunity to EDC a range of Nebo flashlights and they have all proven to be great little EDC torches with more than adequate lumen outputs.

The technical specs and data for each are provided below.

 Nebo iPROTEC

It has 5 different light modes:

  • follow High – 220 Lumens, 4-hour runtime, 138-meter beam
  • Medium – 110 Lumens, 8-hour runtime, 60-meter beam
  • Low – 22 Lumens, 15-hour runtime, 27-meter beam
  • Strobe – 220 Lumens, 72-hour runtime, 138-meter beam
  • S.O.S – 220 Lumens, 72-hour runtime, 138-meter beam

Operation Nebo iPROTEC

Rear-positioned ON/OFF button with Soft Touch Technology – great for holding the torch in the tactical position.

Powered by 3 AAA batteries which are included; it’s great that Nebo decided to go with this type of battery as it is readily available as opposed to some proprietary battery or one that is hard to obtain.

What we think of Nebo iPROTEC

I have tested all 4 torches for the last 2-3 months and am very impressed with their performance. They are durable, water resistant and the light output is very reasonable. If you are looking for a new EDC torch, I highly recommend the Nebo torch range to you. They are just the right size and fit comfortably in your hand. The only problem that I noticed was that the black coating wore off a couple of the torches after being rubbed around with other items inside my pocket or bag but it was quite minimal. I have seen this problem with other torch brands as paint does wear off over time due to general wear and tear reasons. Overall the torches performed extremely well and surpassed my expectations.

These torches are perfect for tactical use and a great addition to any EDC pocket carry, EDC bag, go bag, get home bag or bug out bag.
