Sofirn SC02: Multi-functional Mini Flashlight
The Sofirn SC02 (SC02) released in 2023. It uses Luminus SST20 LED, TIR reflector and integrated 360 mAh Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 320 lm output, 1633 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 81 m.
The SC02 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 lenses of the SC02 are engineered to optimize optical efficiency by reducing light scattering and minimizing lens artifacts. This light has 3 modes of lighting.
Without mode memory, this flashlight always starts in the default mode. This USB rechargeable flashlight is designed to be compact and lightweight, making them highly portable and easy to carry.

Sofirn SC02 (SC02) specifications
The presence of a flashlight can provide a sense of reassurance and confidence in unfamiliar or potentially dangerous environments.
|Body diameter||23 mm|
|Head diameter||23 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 27 g flashlight may not provide the same level of brightness or features as larger models, it can be handy for quick and convenient illumination in emergency situations or for close-range tasks. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. 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 bodies can be anodized, providing a protective layer and a wide range of color options for flashlight bodies. Anodizing enhances the corrosion resistance, hardness, and scratch resistance of the aluminum, while also allowing for a variety of attractive finishes. The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. This flashlight features a captivating black color.
|Emitter||Luminus SST20 LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
Luminus has established a positive reputation as a reliable LED manufacturer, and their products are widely used and trusted by lighting professionals and enthusiasts alike. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. This TIR lens offers flexibility in achieving various beam patterns, from wide-angle illumination to focused spotlights, depending on the specific design of the lens. The SC02 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.
If you mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys, navigating in dimly lit areas, or occasional use around the house, 320 lm can be adequate. 1633 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. The throw distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The stated throw distance typically indicates the point at which the brightness falls below a specified threshold, such as 0.25 lux.
Flashlights with a higher cd/lm ratio typically excel in long-range throw and focused beam applications, while flashlights with a lower cd/lm ratio may provide a wider and more evenly distributed beam for closer-range illumination or general-purpose use. If accurate color representation is a priority for your specific needs, a flashlight with a CRI of 90 or above is highly recommended. The SC02 with a CRI of 90 is beneficial in everyday use where accurate color perception enhances the overall visual experience. It can make colors appear more vibrant, natural, and distinguishable, allowing for a more immersive and enjoyable lighting environment.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The SC02 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||integrated 360 mAh Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
|Specials||red and blue AUX LEDs|
The power source of the SC02 flashlight is integrated 360 mAh 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.
USB rechargeable flashlights have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their convenience and sustainability. When the SC02 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 SC02 has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The "6" in the IP65 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the SC02 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects.
The IP65 rating indicates that the SC02 flashlight has a protection against water jets. The impact resistance of a flashlight can vary depending on its design, construction, and intended use. Auxiliary LEDs are typically designed to consume less power compared to the main lighting source, such as a white LED. This energy-efficient feature allows for extended battery life, ensuring longer usage time before needing to recharge or replace batteries.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
USB Type-C cable
The clip provides flexibility in how you carry your flashlight. When using spare O-rings, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for proper installation.
The performance of the Sofirn SC02 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.
