At just under 5 inches and 5 ounces, the Coast P1XR makes for one excellent, all-around compact flashlight.
Arriving with a belt clip, this is one flashlight that’s meant to go places.
With 460 lumens on high and a 3.5-hour runtime, the P1XR has some admirable power given its space conscious size. Even more impressive is that it also manages to deliver 50 lumens on low power for 14 hours.
With a rechargeable Li-ion pack and 3x AAA battery alkaline options, you’ll never be stuck in the dark. To make things even better, Coast has integrated a hidden recharging port on the rear of the P1XR. The unique flex charge system allows for USB, AC and DC power charging possibilities.

Rechargeable LED Coast P1XR Flashlight Review
Coast P1XR Flashlight Field Test
On the back of every P1XR, you’ll find a rubbery button that cycles between high and low power. Personally, I like how Coast managed to incorporate their signature brand detail while making this button texturized for a firm grip. Even when my hands are dirty or wet, I can still manage to push that button down with confidence.
With a pure beam focusing optic and twist focus system, going from a flood beam to a spot beam is as simple as it gets. The action of doing so is exceptionally smooth, not to mention, fast! On high power, a 508 ft. beam distance is possible while on lower power a 164 ft. beam can be achieved. With 460 lumen and 50-lumen options, you’ve got great options at hand for most light requiring scenarios
If you appreciate things that are engineered to be functional and sharp-looking, you’re probably going to love the P1XR. With an all-metal exterior, excluding the push button and glass lens, of course, this flashlight is simply put, rock-solid! Best of all, its impact and weather resistant. Go ahead and use it in the real world without worry, there’s no cheap plastic or corners cut here. Of course, Coast also stands behind their gear with a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship too.
While black is my go-to color choice for flashlights, you might be pleased to know that the Coast P1XR also comes in a wide range of colors including red, blue, green and orange. Regardless of which color you choice, you can be certain that carrying around a P1XR is truly an every day treat.
