Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish
Colorsblack

This 336 g flashlight would be considered relatively heavy for a handheld flashlight. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of K30 GT has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. The K30 GT flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.

Luminus has established a positive reputation as a reliable 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 AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches.

Performance

Flux5500 lm
Intensity262144 cd
Throw1024 m
CD/LM factor47.66

With 5500 lm, the K30 GT flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. Flashlights with extremely high luminous intensity often require significant power and generate more heat due to the increased energy output. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output.

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. 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 strobe function on the K30 GT flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light.

The power source of the K30 GT flashlight is 3 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. The K30 GT cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. When the flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output.

The thermal protection feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. The "8" in the IP68 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.

Accessories

Package contents2 x spare o-rings
handle
lanyard

When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it provides a more secure and stable hold. When using spare O-rings, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for proper installation.

The performance of the Acebeam K30 GT 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.
