Nextorch Industries has recently unveiled the new 20,000 lumen Saint Torch 31 searchlight, which was engineered to assist first responders in search and rescue scenarios. A high output light that is capable of withstanding long runtimes, the Saint Torch 31 is also suitable to a wide variety of outdoor tasks beyond the realm of search and rescue, like recovering harvested game in the dark or late nights out over water.

The Nextorch Saint Torch 31 is manufactured from 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum and has a waterproof rating of IPX7. It is waterproof for up to 30 minutes in one meter of water and is able to withstand the shock of being dropped from one meter in height. The business end of the Saint Torch 31 is made up of 8 LEDs that have an output of 20,000 lumens with a max light throw of 740 meters. 

The battery pack on the Saint Torch 31 consists of six 4800 mAh Lithium-ion cells that can provide up to 81 hours of runtime on the low setting and 2 hours and 15 minutes on the brightest “turbo” setting. This battery pack is cleverly housed in the main shaft of the Saint Torch 31 and can be charged via USB-C cables once the torch head is unscrewed from the battery. The battery pack can also be used as a power bank to recharge phones or other devices via USB cable.
