Review: Jaxman E2L Flashlight
Kevin Felts 06.02.17
The Jaxman E2L is very much like the Jaxman E2, except the E2L has three LEDs while the E2 has a single LED.
First impressions were good. The Jaxman E2L has a good solid feel and does not feel “cheap”.

Included in the package was a lanyard and extra gaskets. No carry pouch was included.
Drop – The flashlight was held at around four feet in height and then dropped several times. Each time the flashlight was dropped, it was dropped from a different angle.
The E2L was dropped twice on its side, once on the bezel and once on the tailcap.
Water – The Jaxman E2L was tied to a piece of cord with the other end of the cord tied to a tree, and then tossed into a clear flowing creek with a sand bottom. The flashlight was left in the water for a little over an hour and then retrieved.
There was no water inside the flashlight.
Before the flashlight was submerged, the threads on the head and tailcap were coated with wheel bearing grease. In previous reviews there had been complaints that the threads should have been coated with a grease, so this time the threads were coated.
Beam – The beam is more of a flood than a spot. The 900 lumens lumens puts out plenty of light.
The flashlight is turned on/off by a button in the tailcap. There is no momentary on/off.
Turning the flashlight on, and then gently pressing the on/off button will make the light cycle through the brightness settings.
There is no memory of the last setting used. When the light is turned off, next time it is turned on, it will go to the lowest setting.
While using the light around the farm, it got hot enough to notice, but not hot enough to burn my hand. It was not just the bezel that got hot, it was the entire light. Which I guess would be expected for a light that puts out 900 lumens and almost 5 inches long.
The E2L has two lanyard holes, which are both on the same side of the tailcap. The holes measure 3/16 long and 1/8 inch wide. For those of you who replace the factory lanyard, I was able to get a piece of green trotline string (which has a rating of 330 pounds) through the holes.
Carry pouch was not included.
I wish the E2L had a momentary on/off and a memory of the last brightness setting used. Besides those two issues, I could not find anything else to complain about.
Quality is good and the brightness settings varied enough to carry out a range of tasks.
Overall, I give the Jaxman E2L a score of 9.0 out of 10.
As of June 1, 2017, the Jazman E2L has a price of $36.55 on Amazon and is eligible for Prime shipping.
