Lumintop EDC AA 600lm In-depth review, Pros and Cons
The Lumintop EDC AA (EDCAA) released in 2020. It uses Osram GW PUSRA1.PM LED, TIR reflector and 1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 600 lm output, 6502 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 161 m.
The EDC AA flashlight is an indispensable tool in various situations, from everyday tasks and outdoor adventures to emergency preparedness and professional use. TIR technology minimizes hotspots, dark spots, and irregularities in the beam of EDC AA. This light has 4 modes of lighting. Lack of mode memory means you need to manually adjust the flashlight's settings each time you turn it on to get the desired mode. The strobe function can be utilized as a self-defense tool, providing a non-lethal means to deter or disorient attackers

The EDC AA flashlight enhance personal safety and security. It allows you to illuminate dark areas, identify potential hazards, or deter threats by shining light on them.
|Body diameter||17 mm|
|Head diameter||17 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The EDC AA is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The length of the EDC AA flashlight can affect its portability. A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go. The aluminium body of EDC AA has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.
HAIII coating is widely used in the flashlight industry due to its durability, corrosion resistance, improved grip, and aesthetic appeal. The EDC AA flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||Osram GW PUSRA1.PM LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Switch||mechanical rear, forward clicky|
Osram has a reputation for producing LEDs that deliver consistent quality and durability. Their products often undergo rigorous testing and adhere to industry standards to ensure high performance and longevity. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The TIR lens of EDC AA can minimize light loss and achieve high light output by capturing and redirecting a significant portion of the emitted light. This can result in improved overall beam quality, better beam control, and reduced stray light.
The multiple switch configuration on the EDC AA flashlight can be a useful option, providing additional versatility and convenience in operating the flashlight. The EDC AA has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches are known for their durability and reliability. They are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. The rear switch of EDC AA is typically operated with the thumb or finger, making it easily accessible and convenient to use. The positioning of the switch at the rear of the flashlight allows for natural and intuitive operation, particularly in one-handed scenarios.
600 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. With 6502 cd, the EDC AA flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer distances. 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The strobe function on the EDC AA flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect.
|Battery||1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery|
|Impact resistance||1.5 m|
The power source of the EDC AA flashlight is 1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The EDC AA cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. When the EDC AA 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 "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the EDC AA flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The "8" in the IP68 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. The EDC AA flashlight proudly boasts an exceptional impact resistance rating of 1.5 m.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
The clip is useful to keep the light secured in your pocket. 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 Lumintop EDC AA 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.
