The throw is the calculated 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. 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.
The WY07 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.
A protected battery is recommended as the light itself does not have low voltage protection (LVP). This light does not have temperature control feature.
|Battery||1 x 26650 Li-Ion battery|
|Protection||depth 100 meters|
It comes with a battery. The battery must be fully charged before you first use your WY07. The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight.
