The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. The aluminium bodies can be anodized, providing a protective layer and a wide range of color options for flashlight bodies. Anodizing enhances the corrosion resistance, hardness, and scratch resistance of the aluminum, while also allowing for a variety of attractive finishes.

The HAIII coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting the underlying aluminum from exposure to moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. It helps maintain the appearance and functionality of the flashlight, even in harsh environments. The WT01 Apollo flashlight is available in a variety of colors, and the choice of color can serve different purposes and preferences.

Luminus LEDs are known for their efficiency, brightness, color accuracy, and long lifespan. They offer a wide range of LED products with different characteristics to meet the diverse needs of the market. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The WT01 Apollo uses a smooth reflector. Unlike the textured surface of an orange peel reflector, a smooth reflector has a polished, mirror-like surface.

The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The WT01 Apollo has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.

Throw319 m
CD/LM factor23.16

The 1100 lm output of WT01 Apollo provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. The WT01 Apollo flashlight with 25475 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.

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. Flashlights with a higher cd/lm ratio typically excel in long-range throw and focused beam applications, while flashlights with a lower cd/lm ratio may provide a wider and more evenly distributed beam for closer-range illumination or general-purpose use.
