Acebeam Pokelit AA Flashlight

Today I’m reviewing the Acebeam Pokelit AA Flashlight. I was recently (well about 2 months ago) approached by Acebeam about the possibility of reviewing for them, fast forward 2 months and here we are. They kindly sent me a flashlight from their Every Day Carry (EDC) range, Acebeam have a huge product range available, you’re able purchase on the their website and Amazon store.

The Pokelit AA Flashlight is an AA battery powered flashlight, that’s where the AA comes from obviously. But don’t let its size prejudge your thoughts, it’s packed full of interesting and nerdy features. For instance, a CRI≥90 LED (Colour Rendering Index) anything with a numerical value of 80 or above is considered a good light source to view objects in their natural colour. Natural daylight has a value of 100, so the flashlight is as close to sunlight as you can artificially get.

The Acebeam Pokelit AA Flashlight has a light output distance of 86M and features a 3 light output user choice with a maximum lumen rating of 550. That’s not all, the Acebeam Pokelit AA Flashlight also comes with an AA USB-C 14500 rechargeable battery, you can also use a standard alkaline AA battery too. The LED itself is a Nichia 219F LED.

So, is this flashlight any good? Time to test it out!

Charging is very simple thanks to the USB-C charging port located on the AA battery itself. You can use the supplied charging cable (Which measures 20.0cm) or any other USB-C type cable. You then supply a typical 5V USB power source, charging indication can be seen by a red LED on the top of the AA battery, which turns green upon a fully charged cycle.

The Acebeam Pokelit AA Flashlight is also IP68 (resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to thirty minutes) water resistance and 1.5 meters impact resistance.
