VARTA Night Cutter F40 – Premium torch with extreme luminosity

The Night Cutter F40 from VARTA sets new standards in terms of luminosity. With up to 1000 lumen, it is the most powerful torch in the portfolio. The flashlight will be available in stores from January 2021.

The Night Cutter F40 with built-in high-performance CREE LED reaches a beam range of up to 240 meters and generates a light output of up to 1000 lumen that literally cuts through the night. Using the on/off button, the light beam can be easily and conveniently regulated in four light levels: high, medium, low and strobe. The stroboscope mode is especially valuable in critical situations or emergencies to attract the attention of helpers with an unmistakably bright, flashing emergency signal. Thanks to the precision focus system, the light beam of the Night Cutter F40 can be individually adjusted.

The new Night Cutter F40 has, like the entire Night Cutter series (Night Cutter F30R and the more compact Night Cutter F20R) from VARTA, a shock-resistant aluminium housing to meet highest demands: It can withstand a fall from a height of two metres without any problems. The 23.5 centimetre long and 419 gram torch is also IPX4 tested and thus protected against spray water. In addition, the Night Cutter F40 can be easily attached to trousers or a backpack with a metal clip.

The flashlight comes with six AA batteries which can be used for up to 65 hours. A battery status indicator is included in the on/off button of the torch. The Night Cutter F40 will be available in stores from January for 39.99 euros (RRP).
