This 469 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 MT40 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components.

The US-based Luminus is recognized as a reputable LED manufacturer in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The MT40 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. Electronic switches on this flashlight provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.


Flux8000 lm
Intensity180625 cd
Throw850 m
CD/LM factor22.58

With 8000 lm, the MT40 flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. 180625 cd represents an extremely high level of brightness for a flashlight. 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.


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. 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 can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations.

The Haikelite MT40 flashlight is powered by 4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries. The battery indicator helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. When the flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output. 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.
