Nichia Corporation is a highly regarded Japanese LED manufacturer known for its high-quality LED products and advancements in LED technology. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The TIR lens of TK17 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.
The TK17 Nichia 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. The rear switch of TK17 Nichia is typically operated with the thumb or finger, making it easily accessible and convenient to use. The positioning of the switch at the rear of the flashlight allows for natural and intuitive operation, particularly in one-handed scenarios.
The 1400 lm output of TK17 Nichia provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 8500 cd, the TK17 Nichia 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 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. If accurate color representation is a priority for your specific needs, a flashlight with a CRI of 90 or above is highly recommended. The TK17 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The TK17 Nichia 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.

When the TK17 Nichia 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 TK17 Nichia has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The TK17 Nichia flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
