This Folomov flashlight offers portability, versatility, and reliability in providing illumination.
|Body diameter||25.4 mm|
|Head diameter||25.4 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 50 g flashlight would be considered extremely lightweight for a handheld flashlight. 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 18650S flashlight. The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.
|Emitter||Nichia 219D LED|
|Color temperature||3000 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
Nichia Corporation is a highly regarded Japanese LED manufacturer known for its high-quality LED products and advancements in LED technology. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The 18650S 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 of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The 18650S 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 18650S 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 900 lm output of 18650S provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 6940 cd, the 18650S flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer 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 18650S 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 18650S flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect. The 18650S has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The power source of the 18650S flashlight is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The 18650S 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 18650S 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 18650S 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 18650S flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
