Product Information

View product information of Handheld XL7.2



This compact version of the XL hand helds is known for its robust impact-resistant design and has a particularly long burning time of 2200 lumens. The external charging mechanism and LED battery life indication makes this indestructible, virtually maintenance-free light bulb handy to use. Together with its big brother, the XL 13.2, this lamp forms the Metalsub family of hand lamps with handle brackets. This bracket is useful, for example, to put the lamp behind a weight belt to release the hands temporarily.

This lamp has the familiar characteristics of all Metalsub lamps: indestructible, made from the best kind of aluminum, 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 doesn’t need to be opened for charging the NiMH battery. At the back it 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 supplied MP1100 charger can recharge the lamp in 5 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 to function as protection against deep discharge. So protection in every thinkable way! On a full load he stays on for 70 minutes at 100%.

To extend the burning time, this lamp is continuously dimmable between 0 and 100%. It is equipped with a handy color LED which indicates the amount of residual burning time left over by the green-orange-red traffic light colors. The SOS and flash / strobe signal settings, which are familiar properties of Metalsub lamps, are of course also present.
