Acebeam TK17 Osram (TK17O) specifications
Flashlights are compact and lightweight, making them highly portable. They can easily fit into pockets, backpacks, or glove compartments, allowing you to carry them wherever you go.
|Body diameter||21 mm|
|Head diameter||25.4 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 50.3 g flashlight would generally be considered lightweight and easy to handle for most people. It's important to consider the length of the flashlight to ensure it fits comfortably in your desired carrying method. Aluminium body of TK17 Osram 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 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. The TK17 Osram flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||3 x Osram KW CSLNM1.TG LEDs|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
Osram LEDs are known for their high performance, energy efficiency, and reliability. They provide a range of options in terms of brightness, color temperature, color rendering, and beam characteristics to meet different lighting requirements. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. A TIR lens works on the principle of total internal reflection. The TIR lens collimates the LED light into efficient, well-controlled light beams that maximize the usable lumens in the target area.
The TK17 Osram 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 TK17 Osram uses a reear switch. Rear switches are commonly found on tactical flashlights designed for law enforcement, military, and self-defense purposes. The rear switch allows for quick and easy momentary activation or constant-on activation, enabling rapid response and tactical maneuvering.
With 1500 lm, the TK17 Osram flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. The TK17 Osram flashlight with 21000 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
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 TK17 Osram 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.
|Battery||1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery|
The TK17 Osram flashlight utilizes 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The TK17 Osram cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. 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. 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.
|Package contents||18350 battery with microUSB|
2 x spare o-rings
With an included battery you can immediately use the flashlight for your desired applications, saving time and allowing you to focus on your tasks or activities. The clip allows you to attach this flashlight to a belt, pocket, backpack, or other items, enabling convenient hands-free carry. This is especially helpful when you need quick access to your flashlight while keeping your hands available for other tasks. 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 TK17 Osram 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.
