This 818 g flashlight is quite heavy for a handheld flashlight. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. The aluminium body of MF02 XHP35 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. The HAIII coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting the underlying aluminum from exposure to moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements.

EmitterCree XHP35 HI LED
Color temperature6500 K
Lenstoughtened AR coated glass
Switchelectronic side

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The primary function of the smooth reflector (SMO) is to precisely focus and project the light emitted from the light source into a defined beam pattern. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches.


Flux3000 lm
Intensity630000 cd
Throw1587 m
CD/LM factor210

With 3000 lm, the MF02 XHP35 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. Flashlights with extremely high luminous intensity often require significant power and generate more heat due to the increased energy output. 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.


Modes4 modes
Mode memoryyes
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. 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.
