Wuben A9 (A9) specifications

Rated 4/5 based on 1247 user votes.

The A9 flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.


Weight447 g
Length215 mm
Head diameter68 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

This 447 g flashlight is quite heavy for a handheld flashlight. The increased weight can provide advantages such as longer runtime, enhanced durability, and the ability to project a brighter and farther-reaching beam. 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 body of A9 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery. 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 A9 flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.


Emitter3 x Cree XHP70.2 LEDs
Color temperature6500 K
Lenstoughtened AR coated glass
Switchelectronic side

Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The orange peel reflector of A9 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 A9 flashlight. The A9 has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.


Flux12000 lm
Intensity44100 cd
Throw420 m
CD/LM factor3.68

The A9 flashlight can produce 12000 lm output. Flashlights with very high lumen outputs demand a substantial amount of power. Ensure you consider the battery capacity, runtime, and rechargeability of the flashlight. The A9 flashlight with 44100 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 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.


Modes4 modes
Mode memoryyes
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 A9 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. Strobe mode on A9 flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations. SOS mode of the A9 produces a specific sequence of long and short flashes to signal distress or emergency situations. It is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.


Battery1 x ABG10200 Li-Ion battery pack
Battery indicatoryes
Charger portyes, on special battery
Thermal regulationyes

The A9 flashlight utilizes 1 x ABG10200 Li-Ion battery pack as its power source. The A9 has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage.

The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the A9 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The "8" in the IP68 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.


Package contents2 x spare o-rings
ABG10200 Li-Ion battery pack
USB Type-C cable
shoulder strap
wall adapter

With an included battery you can immediately use the flashlight for your desired applications, saving time and allowing you to focus on your tasks or activities. 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 Wuben A9 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.
