Rated 3 / 5 based on 1361 user votes.

The R3 flashlight allows you to illuminate dark areas, identify potential hazards, or deter threats by shining light on them.


Weight70.9 g
Length121.8 mm
Body diameter22.7 mm
Head diameter24.5 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

The R3 is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of R3 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. The R3 flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.


EmitterCree XP-L2 U3 LED

Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The R3 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.

The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. Electronic switches on this flashlight provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.


Flux1250 lm
Intensity9410 cd
Throw194 m
CD/LM factor7.53

With 1250 lm, the R3 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. With 9410 cd, the R3 flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. 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.


Modes5 modes

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. 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 R3 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. The SOS signal is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.

The Rofis R3 flashlight is powered by 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. Having a battery indicator allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. The USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited. When the flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output.

Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements for heat dissipation, such as heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. This flashlight is equipped with a magnetic base, enabling it to effortlessly adhere to metal surfaces.


Package contents18650 battery
