Convoy C8+ SST40 (C8PLUSSST40) specifications
Flashlights are compact and lightweight, making them highly portable. They can easily fit into pockets, backpacks, or glove compartments, allowing you to carry them wherever you go.
|Body diameter||25.2 mm|
|Head diameter||44.5 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 145 g flashlight would be considered slightly heavier than average for a handheld flashlight, but it is still within a reasonable weight range. This weight range is often found in smaller and more compact flashlights designed for everyday use or portability. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. A longer flashlight may provide a more substantial grip, making it easier to hold and control, especially if you have larger hands.
Aluminium body of C8+ SST40 is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments. The HAIII coating often has a matte or textured finish, which enhances grip and provides a comfortable feel in the hand. This can be particularly useful in situations where a secure grip on the flashlight is essential, such as in wet or slippery conditions. The C8+ SST40 flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||Luminus SST40 LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K, 6500 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
|Switch||mechanical rear, reverse clicky|
The emitter of C8+ SST40 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 C8+ SST40 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better. This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The multiple switch configuration on the C8+ SST40 flashlight can be a useful option, providing additional versatility and convenience in operating the flashlight.
The C8+ SST40 has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches are known for their durability and reliability. They are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. With a rear switch of C8+ SST40 flashlight, the operation of the flashlight is often straightforward and easy to grasp. A simple press or click of the rear switch turns the flashlight on or off, eliminating the need for complex button combinations or multi-step processes.
With 2000 lm, the C8+ SST40 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. 75625 cd represents an extremely high level of brightness for a flashlight. 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The C8+ SST40 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 C8+ 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. 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.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The Convoy C8+ SST40 flashlight is powered by 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The C8+ SST40 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 "6" in the IP67 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the C8+ SST40 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The "7" in the IP67 rating indicates that the C8+ SST40 flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged.
By securing the flashlight with a lanyard, you can free up your hands for other tasks while keeping the flashlight within reach.
The performance of the Convoy C8+ 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.
