Great Product and warranty service
Great Product and warranty service is just as they promised on their packaging, I highly recommend HX5 mini-flash light, the duration of service from this flashlight is great on just one AA battery design and the illumination and beam adjustment with two settings is very good as well. Buy it you wont regret it

Great for dog walks
Great flashlight for sure. I zip tied the flashlight to my dogs leash so when he and I are on a walk it points straight at him illuminating the area around him as well as himself. It’s very convenient and with the zoom it’s very useful. Makes it really easy to find his duty and I feel safe because our path is perfectly lit up. The flashlight is also light enough that it doesn’t make the leash sag. The zip tie to the leash is really a good trick for other dog owners to try. Enjoy, Tommy

Good light but the clip makes it awkward to put in your pocket. I flipped the clip to the other side.
    All You Need To Know
    Full Disclosure: Coast provided me this HX5 in order for me to test it out. But, everything I will talk about here is my own opinion and I'm not going to hold back any punches. Coast Portland was not given copy approval nor any editorial input in this review. That means, they're reading this review for the first time along side you. These are the topics I will cover. Skip to whatever corresponding number in order to read about that specific topic and find what you are looking for. 1) What I Don't Like 2) Why I'd Buy This Light 3) Build Quality 4) Weather Rating 5) Weight 6) Brightness and Runtimes For Each Battery Type 7) Focusing Mechanism 8) Operation and Modes 9) Charging Port 10) Charging and Battery 11) Charge Time/Battery Satistics 12) Battery Level Indicator 13) Belt Clip 13) Holdster 14) What's Included 15) Accessories/Compatible Products 16) HX5 vs. HX5R 17) Final Thoughts The individual topics begin here: NOTE: The HX5 is the newer version of the HP1. They are virtually identical 1) What I Don't Like: • I dislike the button. I've been spoiled with the low travel high positive tactile buttons of the XP11r and XP18r. This light has gone with a generic, stiff, mushy, clicky style button that takes much more force to actuate. I definetly prefer the button on the XP11r • I dislike the use of a Micro-USB port to charge the optional rechargeable battery instead of a newer USB-C port • I wish there were more than one mode 2) Why I'd Buy This Light • This light is a single AA battery light. So, it runs off of commonly available batteries. It can also run on several different kinds of batteries • It can get up to an impressive 345 lumens when running on a 14500 lithium-ion battery • It comes with a really nice pocket clip • It comes equipped with Coast's Pure Beam optic 3) Build Quality: • The light feels very premium. With coarse knurling. It feels solid • It is entirly made of high strength anodized aluminum • The tail cap unscrews in order to remove the battery and has a tiny hole in it for a wrist strap • The button is a high travel, stiff, mushy, high positive tactile button with a rubber cap over it 4) Weather Rating: • Rated IP54 dust resistant and weather proof 5) Weight: • 2.7 oz (76 grams). That's about the weight of 13 United States Quarters 6) Brightness and Runtimes For Each Battery Type: • The light has one brightness mode • Alkiline: 130 lumens (Runtime: 3 hours 45 minutes) • NIMH | 2400 mah: 125 lumens (Runtime: 1 hour 15 minutes) • 14500 | 800 mah: 345 lumens (Runtime: 45 minutes) 7) Focusing Mechanism: • This light has Coast's Pure Beam focusing optic which gives you the choice of a perfectly smooth flood beam with no hotspot, or a Bulls-Eye beam consisting of a narrow hotspot with some spill surrounding it • To adjust the beam, you simply slide the head forwards or backwards • You cannot lock the beam 8) Opperation and Modes: • The operation of the light is controlled by one button on the tail cap • There is only one mode • There is a momentary on mode 9) Charging Port: • No charging port built into the light itself. Instead, there is a Micro-USB charging port built into the optional ZX210 battery 10) Battery and Charging: • The light runs on either an AA alkiline battery, a NIMH AA battery, or a 14500 (Ex: Coast ZX210) lithium-ion battery • The Coast ZX210 (sold separetly) has a built-in Micro- USB charging port and a charging indicator on the top of the battery • A solid red light indicates charging and a solid green light indicates the battery is fully charged • It can run on any 14500 battery 11) Charge Time/Battery Satistics: • There is a significant difference in charge time when using a dedicated charger compared to the built-in Micro-USB port. The battery was tested from completely dead Rated Capacity: 650 mah Tested Capacity: 724 mah Dedicated Charger (Nitecore SC4): Charge Speed: 515 mah Time: 1 hour 39 minutes Micro-USB Cable: Charge Speed: 297 mah Time: 2 hours 44 minutes 12) Battery Level Indicator: • There isn't one 13) What's Included: • Coast HX5 • 1x AA Alkiline battery • Two way belt clip 14) Acessories/Compatible Products: • ZX210 lithium-ion battery • S20 Sheath 15) HX5 vs. HX5R • The HX5R is NOT just a rechargeable version of the HX5. Although very similarly named, the lights are completely different kinds of lights • The HX5 is an AA battery light, while the HX5R is a CR123 battery light • The HX5R is much larger • The power buttons and their locations are different. The HX5R is a side button light • The HX5R has 2 modes and a strobe mode. The HX5 has only one mode • The HX5R can charge the battery when it is inside the light • They have the same rated brightness at 345 lumens. Although, to me, the HX5R looks a bit brighter 16) Final Thoughts: I absolutely love this light. It is really compact and is very non-intrusive on a belt. I love how you can attach it to a cap and how flexible the battery options are. Personally, I wouldn't even bother with using it with alkiline batteries as the performance jump and cost savings when switching to the lithium-ion battery are so high. I highly recommend buying the the optional lithium battery. As small as it is, Coast still equipped it with their Pure Beam Optic with a perfectly even flood beam. For a tiny up close flashlight, that is a very convenient feature as the beam isn't harsh on your eyes like a hot spot would be. I do wish there was more than one mode, and I wish the optional rechargeable battery had USB-C instead of Micro-USB. If you are looking for the tiniest light, that packs an even harder punch yet is even smaller, I'd reccomend getting the XP6r. It's a bit more expensive, but you just can't beat it. I call it the pinnacle of tiny lights Regardless, the HX5 is a high quality versatile flashlight that I think is fairly priced.

      HX5 light is a great EDC
      Great flashlight. Perfect compact design as well. The only thing I noticed is after a week of wearing it clipped on my jeans in the extra pocket the black paint around the light adjuster had faded just a tad. Not much though. Other than that I love everything I’ve ever gotten from this company including this light.

      Good for a while...
      This was the first time I had really invested "more" money into something than I normally would... It is not so much that the product was super expensive, but just more than I would normally spend on a pocket size flashlight that would only be used for about 3 months out of the year. Less than a year ago I purchased two of these lights primarily for hunting use and the occasional outside trips around the house. They worked absolutely amazing for the first month and had I reviewed them then it would have been positive! Not long after that it got to where one of them would not turn back on right after turning it off. That light now no longer works at all and the second one is now doing the same thing. I was hoping that by spending more up-front that I was getting a better product, but I now I will look for a different option.

      I love this little light
      I purchased this light 4 or 5 years ago because I needed a handy light for my work, and the cell phone app is a joke. I have carried this little light everyday since, and have been amazed at how often I use it. The little light finally died this weekend, and I am actually sick about it. But, after several years of great service, I suppose it needs a break. I am replacing the light with as close to an exact duplicate as I can get. Thanks Coast for a great product!
