Astrolux A01 (A01) specifications
The A01 flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.
|Head diameter||17 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The A01 is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. It's important to consider the length of the flashlight to ensure it fits comfortably in your desired carrying method. The aluminium body of A01 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery. HAIII coating is widely used in the flashlight industry due to its durability, corrosion resistance, improved grip, and aesthetic appeal. The choice of flashlight body color can be influenced by factors such as intended use, environment, personal style, and functional requirements.
|Emitter||Nichia 219C LED|
|Color temperature||4500 K|
Nichia LEDs are renowned for their exceptional color quality, high efficiency, and long lifespan. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The orange peel reflector of A01 is designed to improve the beam characteristics of the flashlight by diffusing the light emitted from the light source.
102 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks, it may not be sufficient for certain scenarios or individuals with specific requirements. 340 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.
If accurate color representation is a priority for your specific needs, a flashlight with a CRI of 90 or above is highly recommended. With a CRI of 90 the A01 flashlight can provide true-to-life color representation, making it ideal for applications where accurate color discrimination is crucial.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The strobe function on the A01 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect.
|Battery||1 x AAA battery|
The power source of the A01 flashlight is 1 x AAA battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The A01 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. A protected battery is recommended as the light itself does not have low voltage protection (LVP). Flashlights without thermal protection may be more susceptible to overheating under extreme conditions, such as prolonged high-output use or exposure to high ambient temperatures. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
|Package contents||spare o-ring|
Instead of searching for compatible O-rings or waiting for replacements to arrive, having spare O-rings readily available allows for convenient and immediate repairs or replacements.
The performance of the Astrolux A01 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.
