This 1819 g flashlight is quite heavy for a handheld flashlight. A balanced flashlight has even weight. It can be more comfortable to hold for longer and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of the X70 has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. The HAIII coating is often matte or textured. This finish improves grip and feels nice in the hand. The X70 flashlight comes in a stylish black color.

Switchelectronic side

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm, white light is generally more comfortable. It's also less harsh on the eyes than cool, white light. The SMO's main job is to focus and project light from the source. It does this into a defined beam pattern. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain.

Performance, flux, intensity, throw

Flux60000 lm
Intensity311000 cd
Throw1115 m
CD/LM factor5.18

Flashlights with very high lumen outputs demand a substantial amount of power. These flashlights have very high intensity. They need lots of power and make a lot of heat, this is because they have high energy output. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) measures a flashlight's beam intensity. It compares this to its total luminous flux or output.

A flashlight's modes are different output settings or brightness levels. They can be chosen to meet different needs and preferences. The flashlight has mode memory. It remembers the mode you were using when the light was last turned off. It stays in that mode when you turn it on again. The X70 flashlight has a strobe function. It produces a rapid, repetitive flashing of light.

The X70 flashlight's power source is 8 x special 18650 Li-Ion battery pack. It provides reliable, long-lasting energy for top performance. A battery indicator lets users see the battery status. It helps them decide when to recharge or replace the battery. The flashlight detects when the battery's voltage has dropped to a certain level. Then, it reduces or cuts off the power. The thermal protection feature helps prevent overheating. Overheating can harm the flashlight's performance, battery, and safety. The "8" in the IPx8 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress.
