The FW3C is a joint community project by flashlight forums TLF & BLF. Brought to production by Lumintop, this ultra-compact flashlight is only 3.64" (92.5mm) in length yet can deliver a maximum of 2800 lumens (XP-L HI) with a single 18650 battery (>10A capable battery, flat top unprotected). The metal electronic tail switch controls various functions including smooth ramping, stepped mode settings, strobe, and other unique special modes. It is a flashlight designed by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS FLASHLIGHT IS NOT A TOY, EXTREME TEMPERATURES CAN CAUSE BURNS, PLEASE EXERCISE CAUTION WHEN LENDING THIS PRODUCT OUT TO OTHER PEOPLE, OR WHEN STORING IT WITH A BATTERY

Peak Beam Intensity: ~10,000 candela / ~200 meters throw (XP-L Hi)

Modes and Runtime (XP-L HI)*:

Moonlight ~0.2 lumens (~74 days)
1 x 7135 Max: ~130 lumens (10 hours)
8 x 7135 Max: ~900 lumens (1.25 hours)
Max FET: ~2800 lumens (**10 second stepdown due to heat)
*Modes and runtime based on Samsung 35E 3500mAh under ideal conditions. Actual max output and runtime depend heavily on battery condition, voltage, and ambient temperature.
**The FW3A will thermally throttle based on a preset and programmable maximum temperature (Default 45C, temperature sensor should be calibrated before use, refer to manual below for instructions) for the first 10 seconds it will run unchecked then throttle itself.

Constant reactivation of turbo mode can easily cause the flashlight to EXCEED safe operating temperatures.

Muggle mode uses reduced output and features
Electronic lockout for safety and low momentary.
