Rated 4/5 based on 1211 user votes.

The DT70 flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.


Weight427 g
Length146 mm
Body diameter50 mm
Head diameter70 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

This 427 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. It's important to consider the length of the flashlight to ensure it fits comfortably in your desired carrying method. The aluminium body of DT70 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 DT70 flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.

Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The orange peel reflector of DT70 is designed to improve the beam characteristics of the flashlight by diffusing the light emitted from the light source.

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 DT70 flashlight. The DT70 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.


Flux16000 lm
Intensity123000 cd
Throw701 m
CD/LM factor7.69

This high-lumen (16000 lm) flashlight may not always be necessary or practical for everyday use. With 123000 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 DT70 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 DT70 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 DT70 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.

The DT70 flashlight utilizes 4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries as its power source. The DT70 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 USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited.

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
4 x 18650 batteries
microUSB cable
nylon holster

The holster provides a reliable and convenient way to keep your flashlight securely protected when not in use. 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 Imalent DT70 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.
