Once aimed, cycle through the 4 modes until you find the one that is right for your needs at the time. High, when you want to impress the neighbors. Strobe when you want to be seen or party. SOS, when you are seriously in trouble. Low, when the mood calls for it!
Dual focus lens
Dual Lithium-ion battery technology
Universal camera tripod mount
4 light modes (high, low, SOS, strobe)
How long does the ROVER hold a charge on High/Low?
The Rover will operate on high blinding you with 1200 lumens of light for approx 1-1.5 hrs.
If you need longer run times mellow the Rover out with the Low mode. Don't let the word "Low" deceive you. The Rover is never truely mellow. Low still burns retinas with 500 lumens for approx 4-5 hrs!
Run times are dependent on the outside ambient temperature (yep, temps affect LEDs).
Does the ROVER go dim when the battery is low?
The Rover is designed to run at full brightness until the Lithium battery falls below operating levels. This ensures you get full brightness the entire time it is running, unlike entry level flashlights that only operate at full brightness for a few minutes, then slowly dim to nothing.
How many lumens does the ROVER emit on High/Low?
Put on your sunglasses when you turn The Rover on HIGH as it will be tossing 1200 lumens into your eye holes! For those of you who aren't impressed by the word lumens and twelve hundred of them, just go stare at the sun...its kind of like that (please don't really do that). Low is a romantic 500 lumens. Get ready to Netflix and chill....Wait no! 500 lumens is still crazy bright. Most flashlights are well below that. We designed The Rover Low setting to produce 500 lumens? Are we crazy...or are we bright? It is up to you to decide. Please be kind :)
How long does it take the ROVER to charge?
The Rover will take approx 4 hrs to charge from 0% battery to 100% battery with a 2 amp USB charger. 2 amp is the max we recommend feeding Rover. A charger block, computer, laptop, car charger, etc. with less amps will work fine, but take a little longer.
Can the ROVER be used while charging?
Give the Rover a tail by plugging in that USB cable and feed him/her (you determine your rover's sex when you get it). If you need longer run times, just plug the Rover into a USB charger. Performance when plugged in varies due to different amp output of different chargers. 2 amp chargers are the max you should feed the Rover.
Is the ROVER waterproof?
The Rover loves long walks on the beach, even if it is raining...just don't take it swimming. It never was much for the doggy paddle, plus it will die a sad drowning death. The Rover has a waterproof rating of IP65, which means it is water resistant, but not totally water proof. If using in wet conditions, just be sure to keep the USB charging plug well sealed, and whatever you do, DON'T plug it in (or use it plugged in) while wet or raining. The brightness of the Rover is shocking, but that is the only part we want to be doing the shocking.
Can I change the ROVER batteries?
The Rover is powered by hard wired dual-lithium batteries. Although Lithium batteries are wonderful, and last a long time, all lithium batteries get tired of charging and discharging eventually. For those who nerd out on batteries, there are 2 2000 mAh 18650 hard wired in parallel. If that means anything to you then yes, when the batteries start to get tired of charging and discharging, then you can perform open heart surgery on your Rover and solder in some fresh 18650's (don't exceed 2000mAh). For those of you who aren't soo impressed by battery talk, you shouldn't need to worry about this. Just be sure and charge or discharge (use the light) your Rover at least every 6 months to prolong the life of your batteries.
