Skilhunt H04F 1200lm In-depth review, Pros and Cons
The Skilhunt H04F (H04F) released in 2019. It uses Cree XM-L2 U4 LED, OP reflector and 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this headlamp provides up to 1200 lm output, 3400 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 117 m.
The H04F is particularly useful in situations where you need to use both hands, such as camping, hiking, or working in low-light environments. This light has 4 modes of lighting. The mode memory of H04F 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

Skilhunt H04F (H04F) specifications
Headlamps consist of a light source attached to a headband, allowing users to wear them hands-free.
|Body diameter||21.6 mm|
|Head diameter||23.5 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The H04F is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The length of the H04F 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 aluminium body of H04F has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.
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. The H04F flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||Cree XM-L2 U4 LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The orange peel reflector of H04F is designed to improve the beam characteristics of the flashlight by diffusing the light emitted from the light source.
The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the H04F flashlight. The H04F 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.
With 1200 lm, the H04F 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 3400 cd, the H04F 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 H04F 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 H04F flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect. The H04F has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The power source of the H04F flashlight is 1 x 18650 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 H04F cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. When the H04F 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 "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. This feature can be especially useful in situations where you need a stable and directed light source while keeping your hands available for work or other activities.

The clip is useful to keep the light secured in your pocket. The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. Instead of searching for compatible O-rings or waiting for replacements to arrive, having spare O-rings readily available allows for convenient and immediate repairs or replacements.
The performance of the Skilhunt H04F 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.
