Very good EDC light!
March 13, 2019
I was skeptical about an EDC light with rechargeable battery, but couldn't resist giving this little gem a try since it can use regular 123 battery. It is a well built unit. Package comes with lanyard and recharging cable. This light is super bright for its size. I swapped out the 16340 battery with one 123 to compare function, and although not as bright, the light level is still more than sufficient, perfect for a backup plan if recharging is not possible. I like it so much, just placed order for another one.
Super-Duper pocket flashlight
January 3, 2018
I have owned many flashlights. This one is perfect. Very nice four-levels. The lowest light level is great for not disturbing other sleepers. The highest level is serious illumination. The USB recharge cable attaches to the Magnetic hanger and glows red and then green. Definitely waterproof. I cannot recommend this light any higher.
No lockout feature

No pocket clip. No pouch/holster. Instructions state ā€œLoosen body when light not used to avoid accidentally switching light onā€. However, my light stays on until the body is totally disconnected. I like to carry lights of this size in my pockets but donā€™t like fires in that area so this is a deal breaker for edc. Could leave it in Moonlight, 0.5 lumen, but disappointing anyway.

The perfect edc light!

Given its size this thing puts out an amazing amount of light! All of my friends have been blown away! Plus it has crazy long run times at the lower light levels from a rechargeable battery that only had 650mah! That is insane. I actually charge it using my spare phone battery pack charger that I use to charge my cell phone on the go. And it will recharge from almost dead in about 1 and 1/2 hours. I carry it always on me in the high quality holster it comes with. I have some higher capacity batteries on order which should increase run time by as much as 25 percent!
ProsIt's just plain awesome! Get one!
ConsThe one downside is that when you are in moonlight mode in order to turn the light off you have to hold down on the button. This for a moment puts the light into turbo before turning off. That is absolutely blinding when your eyes are oriented to the dark. The only way around this is to make sure you cover the lens for a couple of seconds as you turn the light off. I wrote to Klarus and there is no way around this. But that is a minor nit pick on such a tremendous torch.

After much searching for several months I decided to pull the trigger and pick up the Klarus RS16. So far I have loved it! Its water proof, has a moonlight mode, is rechargeable. And has a very long run time even with such a small battery. It tail stands which is a must for me, and the recharging wire actually jumps to the charging port on the light when it even comes close to it. Its well constructed and very small. The absolute perfect EDC light if you ask me. With a blinding 500L output all the way down to .5 lumen. It comes with a very nice travel pouch, lanyard, and extra O rings. I have always been a Fenix and 4 Sevens man up until this point. I was looking for a small, versatile, and bright light that I could recharge. I think this is the ticket. The one minus is that not just any micro USB cord will recharge the light. You either need to take the battery out and charge using a standard lipo charger, or use the Klarus proprietary cable. Its a great cable...but I only have 1...and I have lots and lots of USB cables. So it would just have been nice to not have to always remember to have the unique charging cable with me. That being said though...I charge the light using the same spare battery pack that I use to charge my cell phone. And it works great. All and all A+ for the Klarus RS16

Cool compact flashlight
June 28, 2016
This is a cool bright compact flashlight.
ProsSmall, compact, and bright. It has 500 lumens which is bright. The magnetic usb connector is good feature to stick to metal studs in buildings.
ConsIt might be too small. You could lose it. There should be a clip attached to this flashlight, not a lanyard.
