Mechforce EDC Titanium 1300lm review. Is it worth it in 2023?
The Mechforce EDC Titanium (EDCTIT) 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 Titanium flashlight is an indispensable tool in various situations, from everyday tasks and outdoor adventures to emergency preparedness and professional use. It uses a TIR lens to form the beam pattern. This light has 4 modes of lighting. The mode memory of EDC Titanium 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

The emitter of EDC Titanium manufactured by Nichia, a Japanese LED manufacturer. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool 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 Titanium 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 EDC Titanium uses a reear switch. Rear switches are commonly found on tactical flashlights designed for law enforcement, military, and self-defense purposes. The rear switch allows for quick and easy momentary activation or constant-on activation, enabling rapid response and tactical maneuvering.
With 1300 lm, the EDC Titanium 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 Titanium 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 Titanium 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 strobe function on the EDC Titanium 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 18350 Li-Ion battery|
The power source of the EDC Titanium flashlight is 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator on a flashlight is beneficial as it allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. It helps prevent unexpected power failures during critical situations and ensures that the flashlight is ready for use when needed.
The EDC Titanium cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. When the EDC Titanium 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 "7" in the IPx7 rating indicates that the EDC Titanium flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged.
