This flashlight was offered along with the Acebeam H20 [reviewed here] in a CRX Giveaway.
Funny thing is, I was looking for a AAA flashlight and a Headlamp and on this giveaway I got both.
I found some information of this light at Gearbest: (https://www.gearbest.com/led-flashlights/pp_227523.html) (non-affiliated) but it is a discontinued model.
I will make a short review, mostly showing pictures of the flashlight!
The brand name engraved on the side of the flashlight is: hc-lights.fi .
This is a slim and “long” Stainless Steel flashlight, with a pocket clip.
It has a single mode, and uses AAA and 10440 batteries. (although the working voltage is 1.5V advertised on GB). The flashlight arrived equipped with a AAA Varta battery.
According to the specs it is able to produce 240 lumens (probably with a 10440 Li-ion battery). It can provide a illumination range at 8-10 meters (with AAA battery)
The emitter is a Nichia NVSW219BT, with very good looking Neutral White tint (90 CRI; 4745 - 5310K), and it has a Orange Peel reflector.
It has no PWM.
Thanks for reading
Probably the same as Singfire 348 on which the BLF 348 is based.
Not sure the BLF one is still available, but i think the Sinfire still is.
Both are quite popular over here. Simple and elegant.
Don’t think the SF comes with a Nichia, only the BLF. Might be a bunch of copycat 348s of whatever “brand”, fitted with a Nichia and rebadged with their url.
Reds and browns in the test pic of that little round table look nice.
Eheh, indeed it seems! The BLF 348 has a warmer tint Nichia, hasn’t it?
Hum, don’t now about its availability, but I do agree, it is really simple and elegant! And has a nice output for a short range
Thats what I thought! The first time I used it against a white wall it seemed CW, but then I turned it to a coloured place and the colours render pretty well Mi laikes
Mine’s a 5000K 219C. I would’ve preferred a 219B in 4500K or even 4000K, but the come-with Neech is fine.
Hum, my guess is that the one in this light will be around the 5000K or a little bit above , but not much!
It has nice rendering and few or almost none tint shift
I only have a regular SF-348, with a colder XP-E
Thanks CRX It seems my information was not so “away” from reality
That specifies the lumens and the CRI, very helpfull
Thanks again for this opportunity
Thanks for the review!
Does it count as a copycat if it was fabricated for me together with my GB?
It is me that should thank you for sending this gift along with the Acebeam H20 :+1:
Really good looking light and I’ll bring it with me more often
Thanks the :sunglasses:
