Flux400 lm
Intensity1280 cd
Throw72 m
CD/LM factor3.2

400 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks, it may not be sufficient for certain scenarios or individuals with specific requirements. 1280 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. 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.

In some cases, a flashlight with a higher CRI may offer a more natural and pleasant viewing experience, as it can better reveal the true colors of the surroundings. This can be advantageous when using a flashlight for extended periods or in situations where visual comfort is desired. With a CRI of 80, the EDC C1 flashlight should provide reasonably accurate color representation for most general lighting purposes. It can be suitable for various tasks, such as outdoor activities, household use, or emergency situations, where accurate color perception is beneficial but not necessarily critical.

Battery indicatorno
Charger portno
Thermal regulationno

The EDC C1 flashlight utilizes 1 x 10440 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The EDC C1 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. This flashlight doesn't have built-in temperature control. Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements for heat dissipation, such as heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.


Package contents10440 battery with microUSB
2 x spare o-rings

With an included battery you can immediately use the flashlight for your desired applications, saving time and allowing you to focus on your tasks or activities. 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 Folomov EDC C1 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.
