|Head diameter||33 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 114 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 ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for.
The aluminium body of TX3V has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery. HAIII coating is widely used in the flashlight industry due to its durability, corrosion resistance, improved grip, and aesthetic appeal. The TX3V flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||Cree XHP70.2 LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K, 6500 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
|Switch||dual electronic side|
The emitter of TX3V 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 TX3V has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.
The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the TX3V flashlight. The TX3V utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
With 3550 lm, the TX3V flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, outdoor spaces, or even act as a temporary spotlight in certain situations. The TX3V flashlight with 11500 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 is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The TX3V 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 TX3V is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.

|Charger port||USB Type-C|
The Eagtac TX3V flashlight is powered by 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited. 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 "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. The TX3V is magnetic so that the flashlight can be attached to some metallic surfaces. The TX3V flashlight can be used as a powerbank to recharge a device, such as a mobile phone.
