Wuben E10 1200lm review. Is it worth it in 2023?
The Wuben E10 (E10) released in 2019. It uses Osram P9 LED, SMO reflector and 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 1200 lm output, 11550 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 215 m.
The E10 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. This light has 4 modes of lighting. The mode memory of E10 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

Wuben E10 (E10) specifications
Flashlights are compact and lightweight, making them highly portable. They can easily fit into pockets, backpacks, or glove compartments, allowing you to carry them wherever you go.
|Body diameter||25.4 mm|
|Head diameter||25.4 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 76 g flashlight would generally be considered lightweight and easy to handle for most people. 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. Aluminium body of E10 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 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. The E10 flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||Osram P9 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
Osram has a reputation for producing LEDs that deliver consistent quality and durability. Their products often undergo rigorous testing and adhere to industry standards to ensure high performance and longevity. 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 E10 has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches are known for their durability and reliability. They are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. With a rear switch of E10 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.
With 1200 lm, the E10 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. The E10 flashlight with 11550 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. 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The E10 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 E10 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 E10 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 E10 flashlight is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The E10 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. When the E10 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.
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 "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the E10 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 contents||2 x spare o-rings|
The package includes a holster to safely store your flashlight. With a clip, you can securely fasten the flashlight to a reachable location, ensuring it is easily accessible whenever you need it. By securing the flashlight with a lanyard, you can free up your hands for other tasks while keeping the flashlight within reach. 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 Wuben E10 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.
