The rest of the body is made from anodized aluminum, providing a strong and durable long lasting finish.
The E14IV is also rated to IP67 for 1 metre, and drop tested to 1 metre.At the shortest size (using an 18350 cells) it’s just 82mm x 28mm x 25.9mm (length x head x body diameter). Extended size (with an 18650 cell fitted) is 111.3mm x 28mm x 25.9mm (length x body x head) with a tube size of 21.8mm. It’s just 69g without a battery, and 96g with the 18350 cell.
Up to 4000 lumens output with the 4 x Samsung LH351D LEDs in Cool or Neutral White
Manker are offering two LED variation on the Samsung LH351D.The Cool white has a higher output and longer range at 4000lm (18650) or 3300lm (18350) giving a range up to 166m, with the Neutral white 2800lm (18650) or 2100lm (18350), range is quoted at 126m. 6 Additional power levels are available with 3 special modes (Strobe/SOS/Beacon)
Both have their pros and cons, some prefer the higher output of a cool white beam, and others might like the more natural colors and warmer tine of the neutral white.
The supplied rechargeable 18350 cell has a built in Type C charging port, with automatic cut off when charging is finished. A capacity of 1100mAh is quite good for a compact size battery, with the option to use the larger 18650 batteries, a useful addition if required.
Simple UI with single side switch with battery voltage indicator built in
Manker are using a good quality stainless steel button for the side switch, in addition to providing easy to use operation of the flashlight, it also combines this with a very convenient battery warning. When turned on and the voltage is below 3.4V the blue light will come on (for 10 seconds), if the range is between 3.4V and 3.2V the purple light comes up, with the red one staying on when the voltage readout is between 3.2V and 2.8V. This gives you plenty of warning about the battery status when the capacity left is low.
Automatic protection prevents over discharging a battery, the flashlight will shut off under 2,8V to prevent damage to a cell.
The high quality build is enhanced with the use of stainless steel in parts, combined with aero grade aluminum alloy, which is drop proof to one meter, and water resistant to 1M thanks to the IP67 rating.
Manker also include a diffuser/filter to fit over the head, useful for camping where you might want a spread out lantern light patter, or using it as a traffic wand.
