Flashlights! Emisar D4 EDC

Post by estousandy » Mon Nov 06, 2017 11:04 am

This is said to be the most powerful EDC flashlight series at present. Ranging from 3300lm to 4300lm, it surely earned that position for a practical finger sized flashlight. Oh & it's a hotrod light which could burn right through the skin among others if not used properly.

Mine is a 3300lm XP-G2 4885K emitter version running on high drain 18650 with floody optic. It lights up most of the immediate area quite well from medium to turbo. Not very throwy but it does floodlight quite a distance before fading, i'm guessing several tens of meters. Will get some night shots when i get to take it out again.

Couple of turbo shots i could manage in limited time. Please excuse the quality.
The trees from foreground to background should range from ~100-200m.
This should give an idea about what this micro light could put out, almost like car's headlights.
One could expect a bit more throw with clear optics at the expense of some flooding. Light is pretty much unholdable post ~30 seconds but it would step down & regulate itself at that point.

The documentation says this.
With a 3000mAh cell:

Standby: 0.02mA / 17 years
Lowest mode: 1.7 lm / 9.6mA / 13 days
Medium mode (lvl 65): ~150 lm / 350mA / 8.5 hours
Highest mode: 2000 to 4000 lm / TBD / maybe 15 minutes
Being a ramping UI, output could be anywhere from 1.7-4400lm as per selection, or 3300lm max in my case. There are no preset levels. So a standard 'medium' brightness @~300lm could go for 4-5 hours.
