The T30 flashlight is a bit heavy, its weight is 496 g. It's important to consider the intended use and personal comfort when choosing a flashlight of this weight. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. A longer flashlight may provide a more substantial grip, making it easier to hold and control, especially if you have larger hands. The aluminium bodies can be anodized, providing a protective layer and a wide range of color options for flashlight bodies. Anodizing enhances the corrosion resistance, hardness, and scratch resistance of the aluminum, while also allowing for a variety of attractive finishes.

The HAIII coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting the underlying aluminum from exposure to moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. It helps maintain the appearance and functionality of the flashlight, even in harsh environments. This flashlight features a captivating black color.

Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The T30 uses a smooth reflector. Unlike the textured surface of an orange peel reflector, a smooth reflector has a polished, mirror-like surface.

The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The T30 uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. This is particularly helpful in situations where you need to hold or manipulate objects with one hand while using the flashlight with the other hand.

The T30 has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences. The T30 has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. This feedback helps users confirm that the switch has been activated or deactivated, providing a reassuring sense of control and awareness. With a rear switch of T30 flashlight, the operation of the flashlight is often straightforward and easy to grasp. A simple press or click of the rear switch turns the flashlight on or off, eliminating the need for complex button combinations or multi-step processes.

CD/LM factor132.67

The 2200 lm output of T30 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 291880 cd, this Acebeam flashlight will produce an extremely intense and powerful beam of light. It will provide an unparalleled level of brightness and visibility, capable of illuminating objects or areas with exceptional clarity even at very long distances. 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. Flashlights with a higher cd/lm ratio typically excel in long-range throw and focused beam applications, while flashlights with a lower cd/lm ratio may provide a wider and more evenly distributed beam for closer-range illumination or general-purpose use.
