Lumintop FW4A N219C 2100lm review. Is it worth it in 2023?
The Lumintop FW4A N219C (FW4AN219C) released in 2020. It uses 4 x Nichia 219C LEDs, TIR reflector and 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 2100 lm output, 5625 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 150 m.
The FW4A N219C flashlight is an essential tools for emergency preparedness. In situations like natural disasters or blackouts, when electricity is unavailable, a flashlight becomes crucial for navigating dark areas, locating supplies, or signaling for help. TIR technology minimizes hotspots, dark spots, and irregularities in the beam of FW4A N219C. The mode memory of FW4A N219C eliminates the need to cycle through different modes every time you turn on the flashlight, providing convenience and saving time. The strobe function can be utilized as a self-defense tool, providing a non-lethal means to deter or disorient attackers

Lumintop FW4A N219C (FW4AN219C) specifications
The FW4A N219C flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.
|Body diameter||24.5 mm|
|Head diameter||28.5 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The FW4A N219C is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The length of the FW4A N219C 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 FW4A N219C 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 choice of flashlight body color can be influenced by factors such as intended use, environment, personal style, and functional requirements.
|Emitter||4 x Nichia 219C LEDs|
|Color temperature||4000 K|
Nichia LEDs are renowned for their exceptional color quality, high efficiency, and long lifespan. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The TIR lens of FW4A N219C 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 FW4A N219C 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. The rear switch of FW4A N219C 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.
With 2100 lm, the FW4A N219C flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. With 5625 cd, the FW4A N219C 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.
Anduril software offers various output modes, including multiple brightness levels, strobe modes, beacon modes, and more. Users can easily cycle through these modes or customize the behavior according to their preferences. The FW4A N219C 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 advantage of the ramping mode is that it offers precise control over the amount of light emitted by the flashlight.
The strobe function on the FW4A N219C flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect. The FW4A N219C has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The power source of the FW4A N219C flashlight is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The FW4A N219C cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. When the FW4A N219C 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 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 FW4A N219C 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.
The specifications above are based on the official data published by the manufacturer, but we also take user reviews into consideration. If you found an error or something lacking in the specifications above for the Lumintop FW4A N219C, then don’t hesite and signal the problem to us.
