The fan favorite Delta Series recently underwent a complete upgrade.  The second generation 1300 lumen max MF Tactical Delta-5 is now a ½ inch smaller, 12% lighter, 20% brighter and far more versatile with a new tail cap side mounted electronic tac switch and a powerful magnetic base. Built with the advanced and efficient Cree® XP-L HD V5 LED emitter, the Delta-5 gets a nice bump up in both brightness and run time.  We are truly amazed and pleased that advances in technology now make it possible for us to build a 5-½” long flashlight that puts out 1300 lumens max with a runtime of 4 hours on high on a single Ultra Capacity 3500mAh rechargeable battery.

In addition to a new removable pocket clip, the Delta-5 also gets the benefit of several other advances after listening to our customer’s requests: Delta-5 is our first light to include a powerful rare earth magnet in its base that allows you to securely stick the Delta-5 on any steel or iron surface for hands free operation.  In addition, we have adapted the same high tech electronically activated tac switch from our high end lights and conveniently mounted the switch on the side of the tail cap. The Delta has 4 brightness modes (high, medium, low and extra low) plus our exclusive direct access fast strobe mode, which allows you to get to strobe immediately by a simple double-click of the tac switch.  This is a valuable feature because when you need strobe, you usually need it NOWLike all MF Tactical multi-mode flashlights, the Delta-5 has flash memory circuitry, so when you turn it off and back on it returns to the same mode you were last using.  Memory gives you a huge advantage because you do not have to cycle through all of its modes every time you turn it on like with lesser flashlights made by other companies.

The bottom of the tail cap on the Delta-5 is completely flat, giving the light the capability of standing on its tail. This “tail stand” feature allows you to place the light on a table and bounce its beam off the ceiling, thereby enabling the Delta-5 to be used as a table lamp bright enough to light up an entire room. If you have ever lived through a power outage, you will know the advantage of this feature. The much requested magnetic base allows you to stick the light onto your car hood, overhead pipe or any other metal surface so that you can use the light with both hands free.

The Delta-5 runs on a single high voltage 18650 rechargeable protected or ECO Cell Certified li-ion battery (Do NOT use CR-123A’s batteries). While the price shown for the flashlight is without batteries, just use the menus marked “Battery Options” and “Charger Options” when you put this light in your cart, and you can choose from a variety of options with 1 or 2 of our top quality Extended or Ultra Capacity 18650 rechargeable li-ion batteries and your choice of USB smart charger with AC and DC adapter options, all offered with no additional shipping. We also stock a variety of accessories, such as mounting hardware and a custom designed ballistic nylon belt holster.

SMO Reflector Options:

Delta Series with Orange Peel “OP” Reflector
Delta Series with Smooth “SMO” Reflector
Beam with OP Reflector
Beam pattern with OP Reflector
Beam with SMO Reflector
Beam pattern with SMO Reflector

If you would like to upgrade your Delta-5 to maximize the throw distance of this magnificent emitter, we offer the option to upgrade your reflector to a highly polished SMO smooth reflector. The standard OP or “orange peel” reflector has a textured surface that acts to evenly disburse the light over a wider field, which makes the light have a bias towards flood or spill. As some users prefer their light to have a bias towards throw, which concentrates more of the beam towards the center, sending more of the light farther down field, we offer the option of upgrading your light’s reflector to an SMO reflector.  Think of the difference as the choice of loading your home’s light fixture with a spot light bulb vs. a flood light bulb. If you would want to maximize your light’s throw potential through the use of an SMO reflector, just check the option box when ordering and either upgrade your standard OP reflector to the SMO reflector or include both OP and SMO reflectors.

  1. Gennaro muoii

    Purchased several MF flashlights…currently have the Delta 4 …would like to purchase Delta5 but am concerned about the switch placement..I carry the light everday in a holster…would think the light would come on evertime I slide light into or out of holster? And info/complaints on this? Regards, Jerry M

    • MF_Tactical

      Jerry – The switch on the Delta-5 is concave and surrounded by a raised bezel to prevent accidental activation. Activating requires a downward finger press into the switch, and rubbing against the holster will not turn it on. However, if you prefer a traditional tail switch, we would suggest you consider the Juno-5. MFT

    Amazingly bright for its size. Very well made.

  3. Jeff O. (verified owner)

    Very impressed by the new Delta-5. Like that its so small yet is brighter than all of my older lights. Switch took a little time to get used to, but now that I am accustomed to it, I do really like the way it works.

  4. Thomas Press (verified owner)

    This is my second MF flashlight and like the first (an Echo-1) is a notably high quality tool, and a pleasure to use. This is my first experience with a side mounted electronic switch and while I was a little skeptical at first, using it now is second nature. Good job, MF.

    Drive big truck for UPS an all night gig, I carry this every night and have been for a while! I’m a flashaholic have many lights, all kinds and brands! This is my baby and if it has MF stamped on its of good quality! You won’t be sorry!!

    Excellent flashlight that’s worth every penny. You can tell this is different from the china mass produced crap. Loving my Delta.

  7. Peter Moss (verified owner)

    I have had a pro tango for about 5 years and just got the new Delta5. Great light and really like the new switch. I like medium for most purposes, and it stays locked in medium and never accidentally switches modes until it hold down the button intentionally. Just like the pro tango, its superior build quality and brightness. Not sure why people are saying switch placement is an issue – its a tactical light and when you hold it in your hand with thumb facing back, its perfect.

  8. Steve Britton (verified owner)

    Got my Delta last Friday, and very impressed. Never seen a flashlight with such good machining and quality. Not hype, real deal. Oh, and its pretty damn bright too.

  9. dpotts01 (verified owner)

    This is my third MF Flashlight. I like the larger diameter of the reflector and the magnetic base. Not a big fan of the placement of the switch or the fact there isn’t a builtin charging port. Overall a really good flashlight. add the charging port and it could be a great light. the location of the switch is going to be a matter of preference.

  10. Anthony C (verified owner)

    Very impressive flashlight. Very bright for its size. I like the tac switch on the tail. Holding the light in a tactical position with the thumb facing back, the switch is perfectly located. Also like the direct strobe feature, which means you don’t have to cycle through all modes to get to strobe.

  11. Todd Trecek (verified owner)

    I did not like the Delta 5, I did not care for the tail switch. I had a difficult problem replacing thr cap after adding the battery. I did not care for the way to adjust the mode. I am returning the Delta 5, I am going to purchase the Mini Monster flashlight.

    • MF_Tactical

      Todd – Some of the early Delta-5’s had a tail o-ring that was a size too large, which was causing difficulty in putting on the tail cap. That has since been corrected. MF

  12. David (verified owner)

    3rd flashlight from Howard. They keep getting better. I’m a maintenance electrician in a dark & dirty environment & this one is holding up great so far.

  13. Donnie S (verified owner)

    The new Delta 5 is my new favorite EDC. Super bright. I am never scared to get in a flashlight war with anyone who pulls out their light!

  14. Aaron (verified owner)

    Have four flashlights total best run time I will never buy any other brand of flashlight

  15. Rod Archer (verified owner)

    This is the 5th MF Flashlight I have purchased. All are still working great. The new Delta 5 is awesome for the brightness and also love that it has the magnetic base. I highly recommend their flashlights to my family and friends. My daughter and grandson are both fire inspectors, and I have purchased MF flashlights for them. They love them as well.

  16. Alex (verified owner)

    The Delta-5 is the best single-cell light in my collection. Love the brightnesses and run times of all modes. The side-mounted, electronic switch is MUCH better than the rubber tailcap button. Flat (and magnetic!) tail is a nice bonus. A real winner!

  17. Frank (verified owner)

    I received the new Delta-5. I have bought many MF Flashlights. This one for the size is the best! I got the SMO reflector and recommend.
