In certain situations wherein you need something to illuminate your surroundings, there are a few options available. A lighter can be useful, but its flame can only cast an insufficient light. Of course, we can also go for a run-of-the-mill flashlight, yet its beam might have a limited range and intensity.
That is why we are impressed by the capabilities of the Imalent DX80 high-performance flashlight. Mind you, this beast blows the competition out of the water with its advertised 32000 lumens max output. Even on the lowest setting, it manages to produce a beam rated at 120 lumens, which is still brighter than most conventional models.
Other than the exceptional brightness the DX80 generates, it can also throw the beam across a distance of 806 meters. The amazing feat is made possible thanks to an array of eight CREE XHP70 second-generation LEDs that are arranged in a flower pattern. Each component boasts a 50,000-hour lifespan that is more than enough if you ask us.
Given the strength of the illumination it provides, Imalent supplies eight built-in rechargeable 3,000mAh high-discharge performance 18650 lithium-ion batteries. A 19V 2A charger is included that interfaces via a barrel plug connector.
The DX80 is intended for the outdoors which means that it’s built tough and ready to take on whatever comes its way. At 32000 lumens, the LEDs produce a significant amount of heat. Therefore, it relies on a special heatsink to quickly regulate the temperature. Furthermore, testing shows that it can survive drops from a height of 1.5 meters courtesy of the aerospace-grade aluminum alloy body.
Moisture is the bane of electronics, but the engineers made sure it never becomes a problem. With an IPX-8 rating, the flashlight is manufactured to withstand up to two meters of water. You can own this remarkable piece of technology for only $379.95.
