To say the Quark Smart is high-tech would be an understatement. This cutting-edge light can pair wirelessly to the Foursevens iOS app, so you can configure modes, check battery level, monitor LED temperature, and even remotely locate and control the light from your iPhone. We're told an Android version is coming soon, but even without using the app, the QS2L-X offers eight total modes and a wide 950-lumen to 1-lumen brightness range. The iPhone pairing is a cool bonus, but this light is a strong contender on its own.
Pros: Incredible value, given the iPhone pairing features, Loads of features
Cons: No Android app at press time, Battery level readout in app fluctuates
