USB-C & Wireless Charging | Wuben Launched X3 Owl EDC Flashlight
Remember those days when different devices had varying voltage requirements and interfaces? This often meant preparing numerous specific chargers and cables, leading to inconvenience and resource wastage. In recent years, the USB-C universal interface has gained popularity, especially driven by mainstream electronic products like smartphones. Even the staunch Apple finally incorporated a USB-C port in its latest iPhone 15 series. The USB-C port's expanding coverage in various products has offered immense convenience to users.
This flashlight features a cuboid design, primarily composed of two parts: the head and the body, measuring 70 x 35 x 21mm and weighing as light as 70g. Constructed with durable and quick-cooling 6061 aerospace-grade aluminum for the head, it undergoes special processing to enhance wear resistance, assembled with a black cover plate via screws. The body employs high-strength translucent engineering plastic, exhibiting excellent external detail and internal structure. It boasts an IP65 protection rating, survives drops of up to 1m, and demonstrates effective resistance to knocks, as well as corrosion.
Concerning its lighting, it utilizes white and red dual light sources. The white light adopts Samsung's LH351D high-brightness LED, reaching a maximum brightness of 700 lumens (instantaneous), with a beam distance of 102 meters. It offers four lighting modes: high, medium, low, and ultra-low, corresponding to 700lm-200lm, 150lm, 50lm, and 1lm, respectively, along with strobe and SOS modes. The red light source, derived from Luminus SST10, serves signaling and special illumination purposes, supporting two brightness levels: 80lm-30lm for high and 1lm for low.
The Wuben X3 Owl EDC Flashlight features a rotatable head design that can pivot 180°, transitioning from conventional straight lighting to angled illumination. At the bottom, it houses a powerful magnet, allowing attachment to iron bars, car hoods, or tent poles. Additionally, it integrates a robust side clip, facilitating attachment to caps, backpack straps, or pant pockets, freeing users from holding the flashlight and enabling hands-free operation.
Regarding its battery life, the flashlight incorporates a 1000mAh battery, offering approximately 2 hours of runtime at the high brightness of 150 lumens and up to 50 hours at the lowest brightness of 1 lumen. The head integrates an OLED multifunctional information display, presenting real-time data on remaining battery level and brightness values. It allows easy switching between lighting modes and offers low battery reminders, aiding users in planning their charging needs in advance.
One of the standout features of this product lies in its diverse power replenishment methods. It supports three charging methods: base charging, energy storage box charging, and wireless charging. Both the base and energy storage box employ USB-C wired charging ports compatible with mainstream consumer electronic chargers, facilitating easy charging by simply placing the flashlight in either of these compartments. The energy storage box houses a built-in 3000mAh lithium-ion battery, supporting 5V3A USB-C fast charging, capable of fully charging within approximately 1 hour. Furthermore, the flashlight's body integrates induction coils for wireless charging, effectively reducing wear on the device's port, enhancing safety, portability, and durability.
