The MF05 flashlight enhance personal safety and security. It allows you to illuminate dark areas, identify potential hazards, or deter threats by shining light on them.
|Body diameter||64 mm|
|Head diameter||160 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 3400 g flashlight is quite heavy for a handheld flashlight. The increased weight can provide advantages such as longer runtime, enhanced durability, and the ability to project a brighter and farther-reaching beam. It's important to consider the length of the flashlight to ensure it fits comfortably in your desired carrying method. The aluminium body of MF05 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.
The HAIII coating can also enhance the visual appearance of the flashlight. It offers a uniform and attractive finish, often available in different colors, giving the flashlight a sleek and professional look. The MF05 flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||Luminus SBT90.2 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
The emitter of MF05 manufactured by Luminus, a US-based LED manufacturer. Luminus is recognized as a reputable LED manufacturer in the lighting industry. They are known for producing high-quality LEDs with excellent performance and reliability. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light.
The MF05 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the MF05 flashlight. The MF05 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
With 7500 lm, the MF05 flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, outdoor spaces, or even act as a temporary spotlight in certain situations. 2500000 cd represents an extraordinarily high level of brightness. 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The MF05 has mode memory. 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.
|Battery||4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The Astrolux MF05 flashlight is powered by 4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The MF05 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "7" in the IPx7 rating indicates that the MF05 flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged. It is recommended to handle flashlights with care and avoid subjecting them to unnecessary rough treatment to ensure their longevity and reliable operation.
