[Review] RovyVon Angel Eyes E200u Multifunctional LED Flashlight

https://imgur.com/47ce5BlHi all, long time lurker but first time poster. This is my review for the Angel Eyes E200u flashlight. It was released in early June 2020.

RovyVon sent this flashlight to me for a review. I will be fair and review the light as if I paid my own money for it.

The Angel Eyes E200 series includes 3 models – E200u (what I got), E200s, and E200r. The E200u uses a dual-chip LED which makes UV-C (270nm) and UV-A (390nm-400nm) available on the same LED. The E200s uses CREE XP-G3 LEDs for both front and sidelight (Front is 6500K and Side is 5000K for color temperature). And the E200r has red and blue LEDs for the front light and CREE XP-G3 LEDs for the sidelight.

 

General Specifications

  • Front LEDs:

CREE XP-G3 x 2 (E200u & E200s), max 1,650 lumens

Red + Blue (E200r)

  • Side LEDs:

E200u: UV-C & UV-A x 3 (dual chip on the same LED)

E200s: CREE XP-G3 x 3, 5000K warm white

E200r: CREE XP-G3 x 3, 5000K warm white

  • 1400mAh rechargeable lithium-polymer battery
  • USB-C quick charging (5V/2.4A)
  • 4 charging indicators show battery capacity
  • Dual metal switches
  • Magnetic tail with a max force of 900g
  • Mode memory available
  • IPX7 water resistance
  • Material: Aluminum alloy
  • Dimensions: 79.8mm (L) x 33.8mm (W) x 17.5mm (H)

I can't work out how to embed photos here so here are the links:

 

Operation

Front switch (from off)

1) Long press=Turn on from ramping mode, release to select the brightness wanted, click to turn off.

2) Rapid double-click=Turn on from the memorized mode (Low, Med, High, Turbo), then click to cycle through modes.

3) Rapid triple-click=Turn on Strobe mode, then click to switch modes Strobe-SOS.

4) When the UV-C or Moonlight is activated, click to turn off.

When the front light is turned on, long press 0.3s to turn off (except ramping mode is click to turn off).

 

Side switch (from off)

1) Rapid double-click or long-press 0.5s=turn on sidelight (UV-C & UV-A), click to turn off.

2) Rapid triple-click=turn on the moonlight mode (front), click to turn off.

*Memory mode: working after 1 minute (Ramping and Low-med-high-turbo).

**It will step down to 550 lumens when working at High or Turbo mode over 45 seconds.

***Quick-switch: b) Quick switch: At any mode, a turn-on action could switch to the related turn-on mode directly. (Except for from Mode-cycle to Ramping).

 

My E200u was shipped to me on 18th of June and I got it in Australia on 25th of June. I was surprised given I picked the cheapest postage option; plus all the slowdown the virus has caused. I have since been playing with the light. Here are my thoughts and comments:

  • Quality seems very high, which I expect for the price (USD $99.95)
  • It’s bright for the size, producing max 1,650 lumens from 2 x CREE XP-G3. I have no way of measuring how bright it actually is so just stating the advertised number
  • The light does get warm on max brightness but never too hot to handle
  • Brightness goes down on max setting after about 45 – 50 seconds. Transition from max to lower brightness is very smooth, there are no noticeable jumps
  • Front 2 emitters are CREE XP-G3 so the tint is white. Personally I am not a fan of this and prefer warmer tint. Maybe in the future RovyVon will provide other options, as they do on their other lights
  • E200u is advertised as having UV-C (270nm) and UV-A (390nm-400nm). RovyVon claim UV-C can be used for sterilization but I can’t test or prove this. I don’t know if this flashlight is powerful enough to sterilize anything. I have tried UV-A and can confirm it lights up protective features of my passport and paper money (Australian dollars). I have also tried it on dried up blood but the UV didn’t show/highlight it
  • Magnets in the back are strong. They hold the light in place well
  • This is one of the more unusual lights I have come across. I get the impression that it might be over engineered. I am used to seeing lights with just one button for everything, including battery level check. This one has 4 dedicated small LED’s to display battery level (25%, 50%, 75%, 100%) and 2 separate power buttons (1 for front LEDs and 1 for side UV LEDs). I not saying it’s bad, but these extras would just add to the cost of making this light, and it’s not cheap. At the same time these extras do make the light easier to use
  • There are screw threads on the tail of the light. I presume it’s to attach the light to a tripod to fix it in place. But I don’t know how useful it will be if the light is standing upright when screwed in
  • A decent pocket clip is included with the light allowing it to be attached to a cap to work as a headlamp

 

Pros

  • High quality light
  • Bright for the size
  • USB C rechargeable, quick charging
  • Easy to operate
  • UV-A and UV-C in a small package
  • Magnets in the tail
  • E200u comes in a nice protective box

Cons

  • I am not a fan of the white tint of front LEDs
  • Not cheap
  • Small plastic cover for UV lights is hard to put on

Official website is here: https://www.rovyvon.com/products/e200?variant=32532728152167 E200u is out of stock there, but available on Amazon here https://tinyurl.com/y7srmywb and https://tinyurl.com/ybfe8439.
