LED Color Report (CRI and CCT)
The CCT claim is 4000K to 5000K, and this emitter hits that mark. I measure it between 4600K and 4900K. It’s very good and neutral! The CRI is low, at around 70. More disappointing, though, the Duv is well above the BBL, demonstrating that the output is a bit greenish.
Let’s not forget that Olight is answering the call to offer neutral white, though. I like it, and I appreciate it. Maybe when they run out of this batch of Osram P9’s we can talk about some Nichia 519as.
User Interface and Operation
There’s just one e-switch on the Olight Arkfeld EDC flashlight. Surrounding that e-switch is a selector knob, which points to either white LED output or green laser output.
The e-switch isn’t proud at all. The selector has two nubs that help flip between outputs.
All of that said, the user interface is the same as the Olight S2R Baton II, which
When you turn the light on, these indicator LEDs briefly indicate the general charge state.
Here’s a UI table! This only applies when the selector is in the LED position. For laser output, the switch is on/off.
LED and Beam
Olight doesn’t state what emitter is in the Arkfeld pocket flashlight I would guess it’s an Osram P9, but it doesn’t matter much since we’ll see a characterization of the emitter below.
The emitter is in a small TIR, and besides, that is a Laser output module. The laser is green.
Olight does state what the emitter CCT is, though: 4000K-5000K. Very great!
On the laser side is a laser icon. Probably required by law, I can’t measure laser power, but it’s the “laser pointer” type. It’s very good, though. And based on how the Arkfeld is generally held, it’s possible to hold the laser very stable. I find that to be a distinctive characteristic of laser pointers. The package does say how fun this will be for use with pets, and I’m sure Olight will get hate for that – allowing your cat to chase the dot from laser pointers is said to give them anxiety.
The output is very floody!
Power and Runtime
Olight states this as a “Built-in 1050mAh Lithium Polymer Battery,” which is logical. I could not gain access to the LiPO, but I did run a few output tests. There is a battery indicator below the switch, and it indicates when the voltage is low. The light finally shuts off, too. Output is nice and flat, even at around 900 lumens at the start. That’s 3 or 4 minutes at around 900 lumens. While that’s below specification, I’d guess that the Olight spec’d be the Cool White version, and I’m testing the Neutral version.
