The Six Pack is a stubby, monster flashlight. It packs 6 Cree XPGs in one light head with a self-contained battery. It is an ultimate flashlight. It’s got a big beam pattern with no hot spot and it can run 3 hours in high mode.
It shares the same charger as the tiny Exposure Joystick so charge time grows to a very lengthy 24 hours with a fully discharged battery
Craftsmanship is typical British so expect only the best machining, CNCing and laser etching. We like the ergonomics of this light except the off switch which requires a long 3 seconds of pressing the small button. If you get it wrong, you’ll fall in the dreaded flash mode.
New for 2012 is a gold-plated smart port and a rubber smart port cover. The smart port is typically used for charging but it has other nifty tricks like:
- Accepting a remote switch
- Integrating with a tail light
- Charging another light by leveling the battery levels
- Accepting a remote battery
- Charging a smart phone

Handlebar mounting is done with a handlebar clamp that is bolted on. It has a spring loaded pin that locks a cleat on the light unit. It’s nifty but not ideal if you take the clamp off and on the bike to move it to another. It requires a tool and a rubber sleeve to lock the clamp in place. Left to right aiming is possible but it requires positioning and locking on the cleat with an allen tool as well. This system is really better suited if the clamp just stays on the bike.
For the Six Pack, the clamp looks too small for the task. It may be fine for the other smaller Exposure lights but Six Pack is significantly heavier and is a bigger load on very rough trails or in a crash.
