The Search S23 is made of aluminum alloy with a hard anodization treatment, it weighs 188g (battery and clip included) in a pocket size – 140mm length by 30mm diameter.
It’s equipped with 4x High Performance 6500K cool white LEDs delivering a max output of 4000 lumens (Turbo mode). On the bezel, there’re 4x ceramic balls for breaking glass in an emergency.
The newly designed twist switch makes the Search S23 stand out, with the large metal Mode switch, the user interface is easy and simple – twisting to the right for constant on (memorized mode) then clicking the Mode switch to cycle through Eco-Low-Medium-High, and to the left for strobe then clicking the Mode switch to cycle through Strobe-SOS, twisting back to the central position to turn off and lock the light. Pressing and holding the Mode switch, when the light is working, will activate the Turbo mode instantly.
The S23 uses a standard 21700 Li-ion battery, the capacity is 5000mAh (included) which supports a runtime of up to 65 hours (Eco mode). The USB-C fast charge could get the battery fully charged in 150 minutes and the port is compatible with USB A to C (included) and C to C cables. It’s also compatible with a 18650 li-ion battery (*output and runtime will be lower) if you have a backup of this kind of battery.
There’re 4 indicators above the Mode switch to know the remaining battery intuitively and know when you need to charge the light and be ready to go. You can check the battery by clicking the Mode switch when the light is off or twisting the Status switch.
Furthermore, it’s a hands-free lighting tool thanks to the magnetic tail cap which you can unscrew to replace the battery. You can attach it to the metal surface to free your hands for more efficient work.
