Flashlight comes in a nice little box :
Package Contains :
- Imalent 18650 battery 2600mAh
- Micro-usb cable
- 2 spare o-rings
- User manual
Battery comes inside the flashlight , with a little plastic disc on the negative side of the battery . You need to remove it in order to operate the flashlight .
You can see it uses an LCD display and 2 touch buttons !
Size compared to 18650 battery (you can also see the Imalent battery is shorter than protected NCR18650B)
Also side by side with a familiar flashlight , Nitecore MH20
You will notice DN11 is a little longer .
Reflector – You can see it has a nice smooth reflector
And the AR lens

Flashlight inside the holder – Fits very nice :
Tailcap & spring
Threads – Yep , you guessed it , they are square and the annodization is great for tailcap lock-out
Battery used : NCR18650B
Lumens on highest setting (1000) : Approx. 960 Lumens
Intensity on highest setting (1000) : 20kcd

- When flashlight is on (on highest setting) , on the 4.5 minute mark , it steps down at about 650 lumens . That happens if the flashlight reaches the temperature of 55oC .
- 1000/1000 brightness level , Output/Time Graph :
As you can see , it reduces with little steps as the time passes , without any big drop . Measurements ended at 124 minutes , with flashlight producing moonlight-level light , while the battery was at 2.87 Volts .
Also here is the graph , with every measurement available (mouse-over the line) : http://goo.gl/9JvGe6
A picture of the beam – Wall is 12 meters away
Tested some more things :
-Built-in charger charges batteries up to 4.19 Volt in my unit .
-Battery that comes with the package is a true 2.650mAh battery.
Overall it’s a very interesting light , with some brand new features like the Lcd (in such a small light) and the touch buttons .
Touch buttons are a little difficult to use until you find the right way to do it . For sure it needs some improvements.
Lcd is a very nice feature , and i found it really useful.
The quality and anodization is great , not a single issue in my unit .
I like the beam , quite throwy , but with a usable spill.
Please comment if you want me to test something else . You are free (and i would like to) to tell me your opinion about tje review .
