Nichia Corporation is a highly regarded Japanese LED manufacturer known for its high-quality LED products and advancements in LED technology. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The TIR lens of M50 Nichia consists of a single-piece lens made of a transparent material, typically acrylic or polycarbonate. Its shape and internal geometry are designed to achieve specific light distribution patterns, such as flood or spot beams, by manipulating the behavior of light rays.

Performance

Flux120 lm
Intensity430 cd
Throw41 m
CD/LM factor3.58
CRI90

If you mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys, navigating in dimly lit areas, or occasional use around the house, 120 lm can be adequate. 430 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. The throw distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The stated throw distance typically indicates the point at which the brightness falls below a specified threshold, such as 0.25 lux.

The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm. In some cases, a flashlight with a higher CRI may offer a more natural and pleasant viewing experience, as it can better reveal the true colors of the surroundings. This can be advantageous when using a flashlight for extended periods or in situations where visual comfort is desired. The M50 Nichia with a CRI of 90 is beneficial in everyday use where accurate color perception enhances the overall visual experience. It can make colors appear more vibrant, natural, and distinguishable, allowing for a more immersive and enjoyable lighting environment.

The M50 Nichia flashlight utilizes integrated 10150 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The M50 Nichia has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. The M50 Nichia flashlight can be charged directly from a USB power source, such as a wall adapter, computer, power bank, or car charger. This allows for convenient and versatile charging options, as you can utilize various USB power sources to recharge the flashlight's internal battery.

LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage. This flashlight doesn't have built-in temperature control. Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements for heat dissipation, such as heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. The M50 Nichia flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
