Switchdual electronic side

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm, white light is generally more comfortable. It's also less harsh on the eyes than cool, white light. The SMO's main job is to focus and project light from the source. It does this into a defined beam pattern. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain.

Performance, flux, intensity, throw

Flux120000 lm
Intensity1090000 cd
Throw2088 m
CD/LM factor9.08

Flashlights with very high lumen outputs demand a substantial amount of power. These flashlights have very high intensity. They need lots of power and make a lot of heat, this is because they have high energy output. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) measures a flashlight's beam intensity. It compares this to its total luminous flux or output.

Software, user interface, modes

Modes7 modes

A flashlight's modes are different output settings or brightness levels. They can be chosen to meet different needs and preferences. The flashlight has mode memory. It remembers the mode you were using when the light was last turned off. It stays in that mode when you turn it on again. The SR32 flashlight has a strobe function. It produces a rapid, repetitive flashing of light.

The SR32 flashlight's power source is 8 x integrated 21700 Li-Ion batteries. It provides reliable, long-lasting energy for top performance. A battery indicator lets users see the battery status. It helps them decide when to recharge or replace the battery. A flashlight's USB charger can be very useful. This is especially true in emergencies. In such situations, access to power outlets may be limited.

The flashlight detects when the battery's voltage has dropped to a certain level. Then, it reduces or cuts off the power. The thermal protection feature helps prevent overheating. Overheating can harm the flashlight's performance, battery, and safety. The "5" in the IP56 rating shows the level of protection against solid objects. It's for dust and foreign particles. The IP56 rating indicates that the flashlight has a protection against water jets. This flashlight has an impressive impact resistance rating of 0.5 m. It is built to endure accidental drops or impacts.
