The emitter of M52 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. 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 M52 uses orange peel (OP) textured reflector. The orange peel (OP) reflector is a specific type of reflector commonly used in flashlights. It is named after its distinctive textured surface, which resembles the skin of an orange.

The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The M52 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.

CD/LM factor25

The 2500 lm output of M52 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. 62500 cd represents an extremely high level of brightness for a flashlight. The throw distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The stated throw distance typically indicates the point at which the brightness falls below a specified threshold, such as 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.

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.

The Boruit M52 flashlight is powered by 2 x 26650 Li-Ion batteries. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The M52 doesn't have charger port. A charger port is a designated connection point or interface where you can plug in a charger to recharge the flashlight's battery. 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. This light does not have temperature control feature.
