Imagine being able to charge your smartphone with your bicycle’s headlight. Sounds a little absurd, but it’s one of the many things the F.100 can do. Equipped with a 1000 lumen CREE LED bulb, a 2600 mAh battery, an IPX6 waterproof design, and a magnetic mounting system, the F.100 is pretty much designed for anything you can throw at it. It’ll charge your phone, brightly illuminate your surroundings, work perfectly well in inclement weather, and even snap around objects like your bike’s handlebar to transform into a bright, makeshift headlamp. It comes with one-push adjustable brightness, a replaceable battery, and can even charge your gadgets via USB-C. Your smartphone’s flashlight may be pretty convenient, but the F.100 is purpose-built to be more versatile, more powerful, and just the most useful EDC flashlight you can carry around.

The F.100 isn’t your dollar-store flashlight… And it isn’t that basic little light mounted on the back of your smartphone either. With a 1000 lumen CREE LED bulb and a scratch-free mineral glass cover encased in a robust hard-anodized aluminum frame, it’s much more powerful and durable than the average pocket flashlight. It’s portable and weatherproof, making it the perfect addition to your everyday carry, and it complements your needs and your gadgets’ needs too, thanks to its flexible mounting system and the fact that it serves as a power bank too.
The flexible magnetic mounting system brings innovation to how you can use your flashlight. The F.100 features a paracord with internal rare-earth magnets, for easy carrying, a torch mount that attaches to any metal surface, and a matching bike mount that turns your F.100 into a bonafide headlamp. Now you can store, carry and use your torch like never before – from your refrigerator, workshop, bike, car, or caravan, you can choose where and how to light up your night.
The 1000 lumen LED is powered by F.100’s internal replaceable 2600 mAh battery, which also interfaces with a USB-C port that fast-charges via power delivery. This allows you to recharge your torch to 50% in 30 minutes or even use the torch as an external power bank to recharge your other gadgets. Since the battery is replaceable, you can bump up its capacity too, choosing an 18650 Li-ion battery with a higher capacity for a longer usage cycle. This unique feature completely sets the F.100 in a league of its own, because it isn’t just a torch with a large battery or a power bank with a built-in LED. The fact that it’s versatile yet upgradable, and durable yet portable allows it to have a much broader appeal… and the magnetic mounting system is just an example of design-done-well, allowing you to mount your torch for a hands-free experience or even as a bicycle headlight.
The F.100 comes with a hard-anodized aluminum body, giving it a combination of sleekness, durability, and lightweight. The hard-anodized aluminum surface is impervious to scratches or chipping, and the mineral glass covering the LED resists damage too, ensuring a perfect beam of light. A single-button interface lets you switch it on or off and toggle through multiple brightness levels and even strobe mode.
The F.100’s even built to be IPX6 waterproof, which is impressive enough for a torch, never mind a water-resistant torch that also works as a headlight, and also charges all your devices. The F.100 flashlight is available at over 40% off at $69 (the magnetic mounting system is available as a $14 addon) and ships in three colors – black, silver, and a bright orange. It’s designed to be durable and realistically last multiple years, especially considering the fact that it comes with a replaceable battery you can easily swap out every few years.
