Okluma DC1 Titanium 800lm review. Is it worth it in 2023?
The Okluma DC1 Titanium (DC1T) released in 2017. It uses 3 x Nichia 219C LEDs, TIR reflector and 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 800 lm output, 8000 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 179 m.
The DC1 Titanium 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 DC1 Titanium. This light has 4 modes of lighting. The memory function is a nice feature, the light will remember the last used mode.

Okluma DC1 Titanium (DC1T) specifications
The DC1 Titanium flashlight enhance personal safety and security. It allows you to illuminate dark areas, identify potential hazards, or deter threats by shining light on them.
|Head diameter||25.2 mm|
The DC1 Titanium is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The length of the DC1 Titanium 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 DC1 Titanium flashlight is offered in a stylish gray color.
|Emitter||3 x Nichia 219C LEDs|
|Color temperature||4500 K|
Nichia LEDs are renowned for their exceptional color quality, high efficiency, and long lifespan. 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 TIR lens of DC1 Titanium 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 DC1 Titanium utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches. The rear switch of DC1 Titanium 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 800 lm, the DC1 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. With 8000 cd, the DC1 Titanium 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The DC1 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.
|Battery||1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery|
The Okluma DC1 Titanium flashlight is powered by 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery. The DC1 Titanium 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 "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
|Package contents||18350 battery|
It comes with a battery. The battery must be fully charged before you first use your DC1 Titanium. The clip is useful to keep the light secured in your pocket.
The performance of the Okluma DC1 Titanium 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.
