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. With the smooth reflector of the X65, the beam tends to have a well-defined hotspot at the center, which provides a concentrated beam of light for long-range applications.
This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The X65 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.
With 6000 lm, the X65 flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, outdoor spaces, or even act as a temporary spotlight in certain situations. With 423000 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 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 X65 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||8 x special 18650 Li-Ion battery pack|
The X65 flashlight utilizes 8 x special 18650 Li-Ion battery pack as its power source. The X65 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. 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||4 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.
