The MF01 Nichia 219C flashlight enhance personal safety and security. It allows you to illuminate dark areas, identify potential hazards, or deter threats by shining light on them.


Weight550 g
Length125 mm
Body diameter52 mm
Head diameter72 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

This 550 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 ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. The aluminium body of MF01 Nichia 219C has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.

Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. The MF01 Nichia 219C flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.


Emitter18 x Nichia 219C LEDs
Color temperature5000 K
Switchelectronic side

Nichia LEDs are renowned for their exceptional color quality, high efficiency, and long lifespan. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The TIR lens of MF01 Nichia 219C can minimize light loss and achieve high light output by capturing and redirecting a significant portion of the emitted light. This can result in improved overall beam quality, better beam control, and reduced stray light. The MF01 Nichia 219C has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.


Flux11526 lm
Intensity52840 cd
Throw460 m
CD/LM factor4.58

Flashlights with high lumen outputs are often larger and heavier due to the increased number of LEDs, advanced cooling mechanisms, and larger battery requirements. Consider the size and weight of the flashlight and whether it aligns with your intended use and portability needs. With 52840 cd, the flashlight will provide an intense and powerful beam of light that can illuminate objects or areas with exceptional brightness and clarity.

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.


Modes5 modes

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The MF01 Nichia 219C 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. Strobe mode on MF01 Nichia 219C flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations. SOS mode of the MF01 Nichia 219C produces a specific sequence of long and short flashes to signal distress or emergency situations. It is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.


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

The MF01 Nichia 219C flashlight utilizes 4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries as its power source. The MF01 Nichia 219C has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. The MF01 Nichia 219C cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going.

LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage. 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
tripod mount screw

The lanyard of MF01 Nichia 219C helps protect the flashlight from accidental damage by preventing it from falling or hitting the ground. 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 Astrolux MF01 Nichia 219C 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.
