People know Luminus LEDs for their efficiency, brightness, color accuracy, and long lifespan. The color temperature choice depends on the light's use and personal taste. The TIR lens makes the LED light collimated. It does this into efficient, well-controlled beams. These beams maximize the usable lumens in the target area. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.

With 3000 lm, the E3S flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The E3S flashlight has 19460 cd. It can light objects at greater distances. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 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.

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. Designers created the strobe function to produce a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect. The SOS code starts three short signals. Then, three long signals follow. Finally, there are three short signals again.

The E3S flashlight utilizes 1 x 20350 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The E3S cannot charge batteries. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. This flashlight has built-in low voltage protection (LVP). It prevents damage from over-discharge, so it doesn't need protected cells. The E3S has thermal protection feature. These mechanisms track and regulate the flashlight's temperature as it operates.

The "8" in the IPx8 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress. The E3S flashlight proudly boasts an exceptional impact resistance rating of 1 m.
