Folomov EDC C4 (EDCC4) specifications
The presence of a flashlight can provide a sense of reassurance and confidence in unfamiliar or potentially dangerous environments.
|Body diameter||25.4 mm|
|Head diameter||25.4 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 50 g flashlight may not provide the same level of brightness or features as larger models, it can be handy for quick and convenient illumination in emergency situations or for close-range tasks. The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. The aluminium bodies can be anodized, providing a protective layer and a wide range of color options for flashlight bodies. Anodizing enhances the corrosion resistance, hardness, and scratch resistance of the aluminum, while also allowing for a variety of attractive finishes.
Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. This flashlight features a captivating black color.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L V6 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The EDC C4 uses a smooth reflector. Unlike the textured surface of an orange peel reflector, a smooth reflector has a polished, mirror-like surface.
The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The EDC C4 has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.
The 1200 lm output of EDC C4 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 8000 cd, the EDC C4 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. 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 EDC C4 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 EDC C4 flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations. SOS mode of the EDC C4 produces a specific sequence of long and short flashes to signal distress or emergency situations. It is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The EDC C4 flashlight utilizes 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The EDC C4 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. USB rechargeable flashlights have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their convenience and sustainability.
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. This flashlight doesn't have built-in temperature control. Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements for heat dissipation, such as heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. The IPx6 rating indicates that the EDC C4 flashlight has a protection against water jets. This flashlight with a powerbank function offers a convenient and versatile feature that allows them to serve as a portable charger for electronic devices.
|Package contents||microUSB cable|
The performance of the Folomov EDC C4 flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
