The presence of a flashlight can provide a sense of reassurance and confidence in unfamiliar or potentially dangerous environments.


Weight1950 g
Length265 mm
Body diameter59 mm
Head diameter129 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

The R90TS flashlight is a bit heavy, its weight is 1950 g. It's important to consider the intended use and personal comfort when choosing a flashlight of this weight. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. A longer flashlight may provide a more substantial grip, making it easier to hold and control, especially if you have larger hands. The aluminium bodies can be anodized, providing a protective layer and a wide range of color options for flashlight bodies. Anodizing enhances the corrosion resistance, hardness, and scratch resistance of the aluminum, while also allowing for a variety of attractive finishes.

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. This flashlight features a captivating black color.

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 R90TS features a smooth reflector (SMO). If long-range illumination and throw distance are the primary requirements, a flashlight with a smooth reflector may be more suitable.

The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The R90TS 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.


Flux36000 lm
Intensity765800 cd
Throw1750 m
CD/LM factor21.27

With 36000 lm, the R90TS flashlight will provide an exceptionally intense and blindingly bright beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, vast outdoor spaces, or even serve as a temporary spotlight in the darkest conditions. The R90TS is a 765800 cd flashlight. Flashlights with extremely high luminous intensity often require significant power and generate more heat due to the increased energy output.

The throw distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The stated throw distance typically indicates the point at which the brightness falls below a specified threshold, such as 0.25 lux. Flashlights with a higher cd/lm ratio typically excel in long-range throw and focused beam applications, while flashlights with a lower cd/lm ratio may provide a wider and more evenly distributed beam for closer-range illumination or general-purpose use.

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The R90TS 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.

The power source of the R90TS flashlight is 8 x 21700 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 R90TS 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 R90TS has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety.

The "5" in the IP56 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. The IP56 rated flashlight is protected against dust ingress to a limited extent. The IP56 rating indicates that the R90TS flashlight has a protection against water jets.


Package contents2 x spare o-rings
wall adapter

When using spare O-rings, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for proper installation.

The performance of the Imalent R90TS 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.
