Convoy L2 XPL (L2XPL) specifications
Flashlights enable you to navigate in the dark, locate supplies, signal for help, or provide comfort and security in challenging circumstances.
|Body diameter||35 mm|
|Head diameter||64.5 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 279 g flashlight is not excessively heavy, but it is noticeably heavier than the average weight for handheld flashlights. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for L2 XPL flashlight.
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. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L HI LED|
|Color temperature||3000 K, 4000 K, 5000 K, 6500 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
|Switch||mechanical rear, forward clicky|
Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The L2 XPL 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 of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The L2 XPL uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. This is particularly helpful in situations where you need to hold or manipulate objects with one hand while using the flashlight with the other hand.
The L2 XPL has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. This feedback helps users confirm that the switch has been activated or deactivated, providing a reassuring sense of control and awareness. The placement of the rear switch at the end of the L2 XPL flashlight facilitates a secure forward grip. This grip allows for better control and handling of the flashlight, especially in situations where precision and stability are important.
The 1100 lm output of L2 XPL provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 250000 cd, this Convoy flashlight will produce an extremely intense and powerful beam of light. It will provide an unparalleled level of brightness and visibility, capable of illuminating objects or areas with exceptional clarity even at very long distances. 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. The L2 XPL 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||2 x 26650 Li-Ion batteries|
The L2 XPL flashlight utilizes 2 x 26650 Li-Ion batteries as its power source. The L2 XPL 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. LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage.
This flashlight doesn't have built-in temperature control. Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements for heat dissipation, such as heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. The L2 XPL flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
|Package contents||tactical ring|
The performance of the Convoy L2 XPL 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.
