View product information of Handheld XL13.2



Together with its smaller brother, the XL 7.2, this lamp forms the Metalsub family of hand lamps with handle bracket. This bracket is useful, for example, to put the lamp behind a weight belt to release the hands temporarily.

This lamp obviously has the familiar characteristics of all Metalsub lamps: indestructible, made of the best kind of aluminum, provided with a hard anodising layer that meets the strictest American military requirements and a pressure relief valve to drain any excess battery gas. The front glass is made of tempered glass.


This lamp is characterized by the very large battery capacity, but also by the interchangeable lamp heads. Would you like to have extra light underwater, and you don't mind losing a little bit of burn time for it? Then it is possible, for example, to mount the extremely strong 50 watt 5000 lumen LED head on the lamp. Conversely, the standard 3500 lumen LED head is slightly less powerful, but gives light almost twice as long at full power.

In both LED heads, the light is delivered in a beautiful smooth spot with a beam angle of 10 degrees. The Metalsub reflectors are specially designed to ensure that there are no rings or dark spots visible in the light beam.


This lamp doesn't need to be opened to charge the NiMH battery. The lamp has two external charging plugs in which the plugs of the supplied charger can be plugged. This therefore limits the risk of moisture in the lamp if the lamp has to be charged on a moisty boat, for example.

The included MP1100 charger can recharge this powerful lamp in 6 hours and automatically switches to pulse charging after charging to prevent damage caused by overcharging. The lamp is also equipped with a built-in thermal protection to prevent overheating of the battery during charging, but also of a protection against deep discharge. So protection in every thinkable way!

At a full charge, the lamp with a 3500 LED head remains lit for 100 minutes at 100%. To extend the burning time, this lamp is continuously dimmable between 0 and 100%.

The lamp is equipped with a handy color LED which indicates the amount of remaining burning time the lamp has left over by the green-orange-red traffic light colors. As with other Metalsub lamps, the familiar SOS and flash / strobe signal modes are of course present.
