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.
- 2200 lm
- 95790 cd
- 619 m
- CD/LM factor
The C8 SST40 has mode memory. Mode memory means that the light will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again.
- 4/7 modes
- Mode memory
- Ramping mode
