Review : Lumintop Elfin mini flashlight with tritium tube

A few words for Lumintop Elfin :

LUMINTOP Elfin flashlight is a luxury gift flashlight with its perfect handy size and eye-catching dazzle color. As its name Elfin, this little flashlight brings surprises of its glossy surface, for the changeable color of the flashlight in the different view.

Specifications :

First Look / Unboxing :

Flashlight comes in a very nice & classy brown box :

Feels like opening jewlery already :

Package Contents:
1 x Lumintop Elfin Flashlight
1 x GITD diffuser
1 x Keyring
1 x non-rechargable CR123 battery
1 x Manual , English & Chinese (Pics : #1 #2)
2 x O-rings

Extended View :

Here is the very beautiful Love titanium Lumintop Elfin :

Surface is glossy and has many different colors :

Reflections , reflections :

Too many different colors to capture :

It can tailstand nicely :

Head has some nice flames on the bezel , nice touch :

Lumintop mentioned it has copper inside for heatsinking , great for a light made from titanium that isn’t the best at heatsinking and thermal dissipation .

And here we have the interesting side :

Reflector is OP , lens are AR coated .

Led is xp-l v5 :

Tail has an interesting design :

In the center , there is the switch , with a tritium installed ! :

And when there is no light , switch and/or the flashlight can be easily located :

The tailcap design . Switch is an electronic switch , and has a small circuit under the switch :

Comparison with a 16340 battery :

The Vbatty IMR battery i use fits fine . There is space for protected batteries too i believe :

Driver side has a small brass button , but button top batteries are needed :

Diffuser is really nice addition :

And when you turn it off , gitd is there ! Awesome ! :

How it works (&modes) :

Modes : Moonlight – Low – Medium – High

Flashlight uses the switch at the tailcap for on/off function and mode change. The switch has a single stage and each click will turn either on or off the light. If you turn off and back on the light within few seconds, the light will go into the next mode.
For example , if you want to get into the next mode , you will need 2 clicks: the first turns the light off, and the second turns it on at next mode

Mode order is : Low – Medium – High – Moonlight , without memory

Beamshots :

Outside beamshots , wall is 10m away :

Control shot :

Medium :

High :

Tint is nice , not blue or green , nice cool white with a touch of neutral .

Measurements :

Vbatty IMR 16340 used in all measurements

Lumens :

Moonlight – 0,5 lumen
Low – 18 lumens
Medium – 86 lumens
High – 540 lumens

Intenisty : 3,4 kcd

Runtimes :

Medium mode :

High mode :

Battery removed @ 2.5 – 2.6 Volts in both occasions , flashlight blinked at that phase to show that battery is low .

Conclusion

Flashlight is a work of art , awesome if you want a tiny EDC that everyone would like to own Wink . Quality is very good , no signs of machining etc . Flashlight on high mode is very bright , brighter than you would expect from a light of it’s size … There is a gradual stepdown on High mode , but it has to be there for you to be able to hold the light as long as you like . Tritium is a nice addition from my perspective , makes locating the flashlight in the dark way easier . A classy flashlight that also does what it says good , i like it !
