The emitter of MT09R XHP35 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The MT09R XHP35 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.

This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The MT09R XHP35 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.


Flux6500 lm
Intensity250000 cd
Throw1000 m
CD/LM factor38.46

With 6500 lm, the MT09R XHP35 flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, outdoor spaces, or even act as a temporary spotlight in certain situations. 250000 cd represents an extraordinarily high level of brightness. 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.
