Rated 3/5 based on 1182 user votes.

This Tank007 flashlight is designed to be compact and handheld, making it easy to carry and maneuver.


Weight119 g
Length128 mm
Body diameter26 mm
Head diameter32.6 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

This 119 g flashlight would be considered slightly heavier than average for a handheld flashlight, but it is still within a reasonable weight range. This weight range is often found in smaller and more compact flashlights designed for everyday use or portability. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. A longer flashlight may provide a more substantial grip, making it easier to hold and control, especially if you have larger hands.

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 body of PT10 E-Q5 flashlight treated with a Type III hard-anodized, anti-abrasive finish. This flashlight features a captivating black color.

The emitter of PT10 E-Q5 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree 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 measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The smooth reflector is typically used in flashlights where long-range illumination is a priority, such as searchlights or thrower flashlights. By minimizing light scattering and maximizing light directionality, the smooth reflector can produce a tighter and more concentrated beam that reaches greater distances.

The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The PT10 E-Q5 has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. This feedback helps users confirm that the switch has been activated or deactivated, providing a reassuring sense of control and awareness. With a rear switch of PT10 E-Q5 flashlight, the operation of the flashlight is often straightforward and easy to grasp. A simple press or click of the rear switch turns the flashlight on or off, eliminating the need for complex button combinations or multi-step processes.


Flux230 lm
Intensity19600 cd
Throw280 m
CD/LM factor85.22

If you mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys, navigating in dimly lit areas, or occasional use around the house, 230 lm can be adequate. The PT10 E-Q5 flashlight with 19600 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 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.

The Tank007 PT10 E-Q5 flashlight is powered by 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The PT10 E-Q5 doesn't have charger port. A charger port is a designated connection point or interface where you can plug in a charger to recharge the flashlight's battery. 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. This light does not have temperature control feature.

The PT10 E-Q5 flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer. The PT10 E-Q5 has an impact resistance of 1.5 m. The impact resistance of a flashlight refers to its ability to withstand physical shocks or impacts without being damaged.
