CD/LM factor3.2

400 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks. 1280 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 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. In some cases, a flashlight with a higher CRI may offer a more natural and pleasant viewing experience, as it can better reveal the true colors of the surroundings. With a CRI of 80, the EDC C1 flashlight should provide reasonably accurate color representation for most general lighting purposes.
