The X65 Mini flashlight enhance personal safety and security. It allows you to illuminate dark areas, identify potential hazards, or deter threats by shining light on them.


Weight587.8 g
Length186.6 mm
Body diameter53 mm
Head diameter108 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

This 587.8 g flashlight is quite heavy for a handheld flashlight. The increased weight can provide advantages such as longer runtime, enhanced durability, and the ability to project a brighter and farther-reaching beam. The length of the X65 Mini flashlight can affect its portability. A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go.

The aluminium body of X65 Mini has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery. The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. The X65 Mini flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.


Emitter5 x Cree XHP35 HI LEDs
Color temperature6500 K
Lenstoughtened AR coated glass
Switchelectronic side

The emitter of X65 Mini manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. 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. The X65 Mini has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.

The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the X65 Mini flashlight. The X65 Mini utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.


Flux12000 lm
Intensity492000 cd
Throw1403 m
CD/LM factor41

The X65 Mini flashlight with 12000 lm is an extremely high lumen output and offers an incredibly bright and powerful beam of light. 492000 cd represents an extraordinarily high level of brightness. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.


Modes6 modes

Ramping modeno

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The X65 Mini 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. The X65 Mini is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.


Battery4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries
Battery indicatoryes
Charger portno
Thermal regulationyes

The Acebeam X65 Mini flashlight is powered by 4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The X65 Mini cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. 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 contents2 x spare o-rings
4 x 18650 batteries

The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. Instead of searching for compatible O-rings or waiting for replacements to arrive, having spare O-rings readily available allows for convenient and immediate repairs or replacements.

The performance of the Acebeam X65 Mini 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.
