Jetbeam Jet-μ Flashlight

Jetbeam jet-μ flashlight Review - affordable & powerful.The Jetbeam Jet-μ Flashlight is extremely popular and a surefire hit.

It's perfect for multiple scenarios including: hiking, climbing, riding, camping, military applications, EDC and so on.

It's called the JET-μ, because μ means mini in the Greek alphabet.

In fact actually, we found the JET-μ to be incredibly compact and and portable. Here we will give a brief product looking at the stand out features, pros and cons as well as our conclusion.

 

First, let's look at the Jetbeam JET-μ specifications:

You can view the product specifications in the following table:

 

What's in the box?

The JET-μ came in a plastic box, this can be opened without cutting any plastic. Inside the box you can find spare o-rings, lanyard, instructions and a warranty card.

With the included lanyard, the Jetbeam JET-μ can hang safely from your bag and is not easy to lose.

 

Materials

The flashlight body material is manufactured from 6061 aerial aluminum alloy. It's anti-corrosion, solid and lightweight, with an easy grip that's comfortable on the hand. We tested the material and it was essentially scatch-resistant.

 

Everyday use

Insert one AAA battery to the flashlight, switch on it by fastening the head, or switch off by loosening.

Brightness can be changed from low, medium, high by turning the flashlight off and, within one second, on again.

After a brief test, we found that a NiMH battery lasts longer and the overall light output was higher than an alkaline battery.

With a high lumen CREE XP-G2 LED under the hood, with a much stronger beam throw, the light is ideal for daily use. However the flashlight head will become extremely hot after continuous use.

 

Brightness settings

The JET-μ has three brightness levels, with a max output of 135 lumen. For the luminous effect shown in the pictures, I found the brightness difference between medium level and high level is not so pronounced.

The flashlight has a memory function: the next time the flashlight is turned on, it will be in the same mode as it was before being switched off.

 

Waterproofing

I turned the JET-μ on and put it under running water, and it ran without any issues. After I turned it off and took out the battery, no water was found inside – this little flashlight really is waterproof!

 

The advantages and disadvantages of jet - μ are listed following:

Advantages:

● Nice workmanship, solid and not easily scratched

● Lightweight and portable with lanyard included

● Three brightness modes with memory function, you can choose what you need freely

● Accepts standard AAA batteries

● High brightness and pure aperture, no spot on the aperture

● Waterproof, JET-μ passed the IPX8 test, safe up to 2 meters underwater

 

Disadvantages:

● Poor heat sinking, the flashlight head will be euthermic after continuous use on high setting for several minutes

● The screw threads seems don’t close perfectly when battery inside

● The lanyard attracts dust easily

 

Review Wrap-up

In conclusion, while the Jetbeam JET-μ does have some disadvantages, they are outweighed by the advantages. So for most users, they would be idea as a gift.

The price of this flashlight is now just $9.79, making this powerful flashlight both affordable and extremely practical.
