Luminus has established a positive reputation as a reliable LED manufacturer, and their products are widely used and trusted by lighting professionals and enthusiasts alike. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The TK22 UE features a smooth reflector (SMO). If long-range illumination and throw distance are the primary requirements, a flashlight with a smooth reflector may be more suitable.
The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The TK22 UE 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 TK22 UE has electronic switch. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches since they require a small amount of power for operation. The TK22 UE 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 rear switch of TK22 UE is designed to be rugged and durable, capable of withstanding harsh conditions and repeated use.
The 1600 lm output of TK22 UE provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. The TK22 UE flashlight with 41133 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The TK22 UE 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 strobe function on the TK22 UE flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
The power source of the TK22 UE flashlight is 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The TK22 UE 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. When the TK22 UE 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 TK22 UE has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the TK22 UE flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The TK22 UE flashlight with IP68 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
