Imalent DX80 (DX80) specifications

Rated 3/5 based on 1231 user votes.

The DX80 flashlight enhances safety by illuminating potential hazards and improving visibility in low-light conditions.


Weight1204 g
Length213 mm
Body diameter50 mm
Head diameter92 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

This 1204 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 length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue.

Aluminium body of DX80 is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments. The HAIII coating often has a matte or textured finish, which enhances grip and provides a comfortable feel in the hand. This can be particularly useful in situations where a secure grip on the flashlight is essential, such as in wet or slippery conditions. The DX80 flashlight is available in black.


Emitter8 x Cree XHP70.2 LEDs
Color temperature6500 K
Lenstoughtened AR coated glass
Switchelectronic side

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The DX80 has an orange peel (OP) textured reflector. Orange peel reflectors have smoother beams. This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The DX80 has electronic switch. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches since they require a small amount of power for operation.


Flux32000 lm
Intensity162600 cd
Throw806 m
CD/LM factor5.08

The DX80 flashlight can produce 32000 lm output. Flashlights with very high lumen outputs demand a substantial amount of power. Ensure you consider the battery capacity, runtime, and rechargeability of the flashlight. The intense brightness of a 162600 cd flashlight can provide exceptional visibility and enhance safety in low-light or dark environments. It can help with target identification, provide effective signaling capabilities, or serve as a powerful tool for self-defense.

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.


Modes6 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. The DX80 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.


Battery8 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries
Battery indicatoryes
Charger portyes
Thermal regulationyes

The power source of the DX80 flashlight is 8 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator on a flashlight is beneficial as it allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. It helps prevent unexpected power failures during critical situations and ensures that the flashlight is ready for use when needed.

When the DX80 flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output to prevent further discharge. This helps to preserve the battery's capacity and prevent it from reaching a critically low voltage level. 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
8 x 18650 batteries
nylon holster
wall adapter

The package includes a holster to safely store your flashlight. When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it provides a more secure and stable hold. 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 Imalent DX80 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.
