IMALENT MS12 Mini Super Bright Torch 65 000 Lumens, Long Beam Distance 1KM, Portable High Powered LED Flashlight with CREE 12 XHP 70.2 LEDs for Camping, Police Rescue and Hiking
About this deal
What's more, many of the M-Series flashlights are equipped with OLED displays that provide helpful information such as battery status, current lumen levels, and other important messages. The 12 LEDs sit in reflectors with a light orange peel (LOP) finish that makes the beam a bit smoother than smooth reflectors. Specifications say the reflector is made of aluminum but I doubt that. IMALENT has been a pioneer in LED flashlight technology for many years, continuously pushing the limits of what's possible. The MS series flashlights are the perfect example of this, with few competitors being able to match their power output. Imalent's success in this area is mainly attributable to its unwavering commitment to innovation.
After reviewing many Imalent flashlights, including the MS18, MS12, R90TS, etc.. I can see why Imalent called it the MS12 Mini .. But that doesn’t mean it’s really tiny. It just means that it’s based on the Imalent MS12 (with 12 LEDs) but then in a much smaller form factor.For the following beamshots, I used a Canon EOS 5D Mk2 with a 50mm lens. Manual settings: ISO1600, 1/4sec , f4, 5000K Another thing I miss is a tripod mount. Some of the bigger lights could really use one. Or maybe Imalent could produce a handle for these lights with a tripod mount. Just thinking aloud. IMALENT MS12 MINI powerful LED flashlight, Maximum lumen output up to 65,000 lumen, with small size, When the moment you turn
High mode starts at over 26,000 lumens and slowly decreases to 24,000 lumens in exactly 3 minutes, and then drops to about 10,000 lumens as well. Total runtime: 0h42min Here are a few runtime tests. The light does shut off when voltage is low, and when the light shuts off so do the fans. You can see what happens when the fans go off, too – the temperature shoots up a bit. That’s expected and is also a testament to how much cooling they are providing.Imalent also included a lanyard that can be attached to the plate covering the charge port. I’m not convinced that this is a good way to carry it, because the plate can be unscrewed from the flashlight. So, if you’re not paying attention, the plate could unscrew, and drop the light if you just carried it with the lanyard. There is no lanyard attachment point anywhere else on the flashlight.
When charging, a LED beside the charge port is red. When charging is complete this LED turns green. The MS12 Mini also features built-in charging, which we’ll talk about more later. This metal (different metal than the flashlight – probably stainless steel) tailcap covers the charging port. Imalent is living proof that you do in fact, get what you pay for. I had really high expectations of this light, and was in no way disappointed. The MR90 is a very well-made unit, and delivers the best of both worlds. The spot light projects a clear, perfectly round dot that can illuminate anything as far away as I can see. Living in a big city with a lot of light pollution makes it impossible to verify the throw of the spot beam, though. The flood light is absolutely insane at full power, and feels like it could light a stadium, or flat-out melt someone at close range! The user interface is simple, and the strobe spot is a handy safety feature. Imalent was very communicative and easy to deal with, and they got my light to me in about a week.Two ways are included for carry of the MS12 Mini. First, we can talk about the lanyard. Maybe it’s more of a wrist strap. Either way, it can connect to the tailcap as seen below. Mini by name but defintely not mini by nature the Imalent MS12 Mini has a staggering output of 65,000 lumens. Just to put that into context, that's around 16 times brighter than your car headlight!
