Acebeam H50 Nichia 1210lm review. Is it worth it in 2023?
The Acebeam H50 Nichia (H50N) released in 2020. It uses 3 x Nichia 219C LEDs, TIR reflector and 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this headlamp provides up to 1210 lm output, 3690 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 121 m.
The H50 Nichia headlamp is designed to provide hands-free illumination, allowing the user to have both hands available for other tasks while having a focused light source. It uses a TIR lens to form the beam pattern. This light has 5 modes of lighting. The memory function is a nice feature, the light will remember the last used mode. The USB charger port allows you to charge your flashlight using alternative power sources, making them even more suitable for outdoor adventures or emergency situations where access to electricity may be limited.

Acebeam H50 Nichia (H50N) specifications
This headlamp is designed to emit light in the direction you are looking. This feature allows you to focus the beam precisely where you need it, providing better visibility and reducing the risk of accidents or mistakes.
|Body diameter||26 mm|
|Head diameter||33 mm|
|Dimensions||83 x 33 x 26 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 62 g flashlight would generally be considered lightweight and easy to handle for most people. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. Aluminium body of H50 Nichia is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments.
The body of H50 Nichia flashlight treated with a Type III hard-anodized, anti-abrasive ﬁnish. The H50 Nichia flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||3 x Nichia 219C LEDs|
|Color temperature||4500 K|
The emitter of H50 Nichia manufactured by Nichia, a Japanese LED manufacturer. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. A TIR lens works on the principle of total internal reflection. The TIR lens collimates the LED light into efficient, well-controlled light beams that maximize the usable lumens in the target area. The H50 Nichia utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
With 1210 lm, the H50 Nichia flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. With 3690 cd, the H50 Nichia flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer distances.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The H50 Nichia has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
The Acebeam H50 Nichia flashlight is powered by 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
USB Type-C cable
Having spare O-rings allows you to replace them as needed, ensuring that the flashlight maintains its water-tight seal and remains protected from moisture or water ingress.
The performance of the Acebeam H50 Nichia flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
The specifications above are based on the official data published by the manufacturer, but we also take user reviews into consideration. If you found an error or something lacking in the specifications above for the Acebeam H50 Nichia, then don’t hesite and signal the problem to us.
