EmitterCree XP-G3 LED
Color temperature6500 K
Switchelectronic side

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 TIR lens of Mini One consists of a single-piece lens made of a transparent material, typically acrylic or polycarbonate. Its shape and internal geometry are designed to achieve specific light distribution patterns, such as flood or spot beams, by manipulating the behavior of light rays. The Mini One 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.


Flux500 lm
Intensity1800 cd
Throw85 m
CD/LM factor3.6

If you mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys, navigating in dimly lit areas, or occasional use around the house, 500 lm can be adequate. 1800 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. 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.


Modes5 modes

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The Mini One 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. SOS mode of the Mini One 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.

The Mini One flashlight utilizes integrated 120 mAh Li-Ion battery as its power source. The Mini One 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. The Mini One flashlight can be charged directly from a USB power source, such as a wall adapter, computer, power bank, or car charger. This allows for convenient and versatile charging options, as you can utilize various USB power sources to recharge the flashlight's internal battery.

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 Mini One flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.

The impact resistance of a flashlight can vary depending on its design, construction, and intended use. It has auxiliary LEDs which make it really nice looking. With UV light the Mini One can help detect counterfeit currency, authenticate identification cards, or identify stains or markings that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye.

The performance of the Jetbeam Mini One 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.
