This Manker flashlight offers portability, versatility, and reliability in providing illumination.


Weight720 g
Length161 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

The MK39 Nichia flashlight is a bit heavy, its weight is 720 g. It's important to consider the intended use and personal comfort when choosing a flashlight of this weight. The length of the MK39 Nichia 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. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for MK39 Nichia flashlight.

Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.

The emitter of MK39 Nichia manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Nichia Corporation is a highly regarded Japanese LED manufacturer known for its high-quality LED products and advancements in LED technology. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light.

The smooth reflector is typically used in flashlights where long-range illumination is a priority, such as searchlights or thrower flashlights. By minimizing light scattering and maximizing light directionality, the smooth reflector can produce a tighter and more concentrated beam that reaches greater distances. The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The MK39 Nichia utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.


Flux6000 lm
Intensity305000 cd
Throw1105 m
CD/LM factor50.83

With 6000 lm, the MK39 Nichia flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, outdoor spaces, or even act as a temporary spotlight in certain situations. 305000 cd represents an extraordinarily high level of brightness. 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. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm.


Mode memoryyes
Ramping modeyes

The MK39 Nichia 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 MK39 Nichia flashlight with ramping mode has a user interface that enables you to control the brightness level by pressing and holding a button.


Battery4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries
Battery indicatoryes
Charger portno
Thermal regulationyes

The Manker MK39 Nichia flashlight is powered by 4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The MK39 Nichia doesn't have charger port. A charger port is a designated connection point or interface where you can plug in a charger to recharge the flashlight's battery. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.

The MK39 Nichia 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 MK39 Nichia flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.


Package contents2 x spare o-rings
shoulder strap

Regularly replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps maintain the overall durability and performance of the flashlight.

The performance of the Manker MK39 Nichia 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.
