Weight70.1 g
Length125 mm
Body diameter23 mm
Head diameter23 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

This 70.1 g flashlight would generally be considered lightweight and easy to handle for most people. The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. Aluminium body of TC128 is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments.

The HAIII coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting the underlying aluminum from exposure to moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. It helps maintain the appearance and functionality of the flashlight, even in harsh environments. The TC128 flashlight is available in black.

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 primary function of the smooth reflector (SMO) is to precisely focus and project the light emitted from the light source into a defined beam pattern. The smooth surface allows for greater reflectivity and light concentration, resulting in a more focused and intense beam with a longer throw distance.

This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The TC128 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.


Flux420 lm
Intensity10000 cd
Throw200 m
CD/LM factor23.81

420 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks, it may not be sufficient for certain scenarios or individuals with specific requirements. With 10000 cd, the TC128 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. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.


Modes3 modes
Mode memoryno
Ramping modeno

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The strobe function on the TC128 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 TC128 has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.

The power source of the TC128 flashlight is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. A protected battery is recommended as the light itself does not have low voltage protection (LVP). Flashlights without thermal protection may be more susceptible to overheating under extreme conditions, such as prolonged high-output use or exposure to high ambient temperatures.

The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. With an impressive impact resistance rating of 1.5 m, the TC128 flashlight is built to endure accidental drops or impacts, ensuring its resilience and dependable performance in demanding situations. 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.


Package contents18650 battery
car adapter
spare o-ring
wall adapter

By including a battery with the flashlight, you avoid the additional expense of purchasing a battery separately. Having spare O-rings allows you to replace them as needed, ensuring that the flashlight maintains its water-tight seal and remains protected from moisture or water ingress.

The performance of the Tank007 TC128 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.
