They are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. The rear switch of T18 Artemis is typically operated with the thumb or finger, making it easily accessible and convenient to use. The positioning of the switch at the rear of the flashlight allows for natural and intuitive operation, particularly in one-handed scenarios.
With 650 lm, the T18 Artemis flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. The intense brightness of a 100,000 cd flashlight can provide exceptional visibility and enhance safety in low-light or dark environments. It can help with target identification, provide effective signaling capabilities, or serve as a powerful tool for self-defense.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.
The T18 Artemis 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. The ramping mode of the T18 Artemis is intuitive, and lets you seamlessly ramp the output up and down over almost the entire output range.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Impact resistance||1 m|

The power source of the T18 Artemis flashlight is 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The T18 Artemis cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. When the T18 Artemis flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output to prevent further discharge. This helps to preserve the battery's capacity and prevent it from reaching a critically low voltage level.
The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "6" in the IP66 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the T18 Artemis flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The IP66 rating indicates that the T18 Artemis flashlight has a protection against water jets.
The impact resistance of a flashlight can vary depending on its design, construction, and intended use. IR light falls outside the visible spectrum, making it invisible to the human eye under normal conditions.
