With 363866 cd, this Fenix 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 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 TK30 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. Strobe mode on TK30 flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The TK30 flashlight utilizes 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The TK30 has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. The TK30 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going.
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. The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the TK30 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects.
The "8" in the IP68 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. The TK30 has an impact resistance of 1 m. The impact resistance of a flashlight refers to its ability to withstand physical shocks or impacts without being damaged.
