NameML300LX 3D
Rated 4/5 based on 1289 user votes.

Flashlights are compact and lightweight, making them highly portable. They can easily fit into pockets, backpacks, or glove compartments, allowing you to carry them wherever you go.


Length298.5 mm
Body diameter38.1 mm
Head diameter57 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. Aluminium body of ML300LX 3D 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 choice of flashlight body color can be influenced by factors such as intended use, environment, personal style, and functional requirements.


EmitterCree XM-L2 LED
Switchelectronic side

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. The primary function of the smooth reflector (SMO) is to precisely focus and project the light emitted from the light source into a defined beam pattern. The smooth surface allows for greater reflectivity and light concentration, resulting in a more focused and intense beam with a longer throw distance. The ML300LX 3D 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.


Flux746 lm
Intensity40596 cd
Throw403 m
CD/LM factor54.42

With 746 lm, the ML300LX 3D 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. The ML300LX 3D flashlight with 40596 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.

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.

The power source of the ML300LX 3D flashlight is 3 x D cell batteries, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The ML300LX 3D cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. A protected battery is recommended as the light itself does not have low voltage protection (LVP). Flashlights without thermal protection may be more susceptible to overheating under extreme conditions, such as prolonged high-output use or exposure to high ambient temperatures.

The performance of the Maglite ML300LX 3D 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.
