Acebeam H30 R+UV (H30RUV) specifications
This headlamp is designed to emit light in the direction you are looking. This feature allows you to focus the beam precisely where you need it, providing better visibility and reducing the risk of accidents or mistakes.
|Head diameter||29 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 80 g flashlight would generally be considered lightweight and easy to handle for most people. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. Aluminium body of H30 R+UV is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments.
The body of H30 R+UV flashlight treated with a Type III hard-anodized, anti-abrasive ﬁnish. The H30 R+UV flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||1 x Cree XHP70.2 LED, 1 x Cree XP-E2 R2 LED, 1 x Nichia 276A UV LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
|Switch||dual electronic side|
Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. The emitter of H30 R+UV manufactured by Nichia, a Japanese LED manufacturer. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The primary function of the smooth reflector (SMO) is to precisely focus and project the light emitted from the light source into a defined beam pattern. The smooth surface allows for greater reflectivity and light concentration, resulting in a more focused and intense beam with a longer throw distance.
This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The H30 R+UV has electronic switch. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches since they require a small amount of power for operation.
With 4000 lm, the H30 R+UV flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, outdoor spaces, or even act as a temporary spotlight in certain situations. With 7300 cd, the H30 R+UV flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer distances.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The H30 R+UV has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. The H30 R+UV has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
The power source of the H30 R+UV flashlight is 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator on a flashlight is beneficial as it allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. It helps prevent unexpected power failures during critical situations and ensures that the flashlight is ready for use when needed.
This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. When the H30 R+UV flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output to prevent further discharge. This helps to preserve the battery's capacity and prevent it from reaching a critically low voltage level. The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating.
The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. Auxiliary LEDs are typically designed to consume less power compared to the main lighting source, such as a white LED. This energy-efficient feature allows for extended battery life, ensuring longer usage time before needing to recharge or replace batteries. The H30 R+UV is equipped with USB port that enable you to connect and charge various devices, such as smartphones, tablets, or other USB-powered gadgets. UV light of the H30 R+UV can be utilized for detecting and illuminating certain substances that are not visible under normal light.
|Package contents||18650 adapter|
2 x spare o-rings
two way USB Type-C cable
By including a battery with the flashlight, you avoid the additional expense of purchasing a battery separately. Having spare O-rings allows you to replace them as needed, ensuring that the flashlight maintains its water-tight seal and remains protected from moisture or water ingress.
The performance of the Acebeam H30 R+UV flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
The specifications above are based on the official data published by the manufacturer, but we also take user reviews into consideration. If you found an error or something lacking in the specifications above for the Acebeam H30 R+UV, then don’t hesite and signal the problem to us.
