Astrolux EC01 SST40 (EC01SST40) specifications
Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.
|aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish
The EC01 SST40 generally comfortable to hold for extended periods and easy to carry in pockets or bags. A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go. The aluminium body of EC01 SST40 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components.
The HAIII coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting the underlying aluminum from exposure to moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. The choice of flashlight body color can be influenced by factors such as intended use, environment, personal style, and functional requirements.

|5000 K, 6500 K
Luminus has established a positive reputation as a reliable LED manufacturer. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The orange peel reflector of EC01 SST40 is designed to improve the beam characteristics of the flashlight by diffusing the light emitted from the light source. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches.
With 2300 lm, the EC01 SST40 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The EC01 SST40 flashlight with 41006 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. 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.
Anduril software offers various output modes, including multiple brightness levels, strobe modes, beacon modes, and more. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. The advantage of the ramping mode is that it offers precise control over the amount of light emitted by the flashlight. The EC01 SST40 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed.
|1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery
The power source of the EC01 SST40 flashlight is 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. When the flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output.
The thermal protection feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. The impact resistance of a flashlight refers to its ability to withstand physical shocks or impacts without being damaged.
|2 x spare o-rings
The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. When using spare O-rings, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for proper installation.
The performance of the Astrolux EC01 SST40 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.
