Mechforce EDC Copper 1300lm review. Is it worth it in 2023?
The Mechforce EDC Copper (EDCCOP) released in 2020. It uses 3 x Nichia 219CT LEDs, TIR reflector and 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 1300 lm output, 10500 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 205 m.
The EDC Copper lashlight offers a versatile lighting solution. It uses a TIR lens to form the beam pattern. This light has 4 modes of lighting. The memory function is a nice feature, the light will remember the last used mode. It has a strobe function, which is one of the most effective self defense tools available.

Mechforce EDC Copper (EDCCOP) specifications
The EDC Copper flashlight enhances safety by illuminating potential hazards and improving visibility in low-light conditions.
|Body diameter||27 mm|
|Head diameter||28.5 mm|
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 EDC Copper flashlight is available in gray.
|Emitter||3 x Nichia 219CT LEDs|
|Color temperature||4500 K|
The emitter of EDC Copper manufactured by Nichia, a Japanese LED manufacturer. 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. A TIR lens works on the principle of total internal reflection. The TIR lens collimates the LED light into efficient, well-controlled light beams that maximize the usable lumens in the target area.
The EDC Copper utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches. With a rear switch of EDC Copper flashlight, the operation of the flashlight is often straightforward and easy to grasp. A simple press or click of the rear switch turns the flashlight on or off, eliminating the need for complex button combinations or multi-step processes.
With 1300 lm, the EDC Copper 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 EDC Copper flashlight with 10500 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The EDC Copper 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 EDC Copper is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.
|Battery||1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery|
The Mechforce EDC Copper flashlight is powered by 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The EDC Copper cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. 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 built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "7" in the IPx7 rating indicates that the EDC Copper flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged.
|Package contents||18350 battery|
It comes with a battery. The battery must be fully charged before you first use your EDC Copper.
The performance of the Mechforce EDC Copper 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 Mechforce EDC Copper, then don’t hesite and signal the problem to us.
