This Jetbeam flashlight offers portability, versatility, and reliability in providing illumination.


Weight72.5 g
Length91 mm
Body diameter24.5 mm
Head diameter25.7 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

The 72.5 g flashlight would be considered extremely lightweight for a handheld flashlight. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for RRT01 Raptor Nichia flashlight.

The HAIII coating often has a matte or textured finish, which enhances grip and provides a comfortable feel in the hand. This can be particularly useful in situations where a secure grip on the flashlight is essential, such as in wet or slippery conditions. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.

Nichia Corporation is a highly regarded Japanese LED manufacturer known for its high-quality LED products and advancements in LED technology. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The RRT01 Raptor Nichia features a smooth reflector (SMO). If long-range illumination and throw distance are the primary requirements, a flashlight with a smooth reflector may be more suitable.

The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The RRT01 Raptor Nichia uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. This is particularly helpful in situations where you need to hold or manipulate objects with one hand while using the flashlight with the other hand.

The RRT01 Raptor Nichia has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. This feedback helps users confirm that the switch has been activated or deactivated, providing a reassuring sense of control and awareness. The placement of the rear switch at the end of the RRT01 Raptor Nichia flashlight facilitates a secure forward grip. This grip allows for better control and handling of the flashlight, especially in situations where precision and stability are important.

The 950 lm output of RRT01 Raptor Nichia provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 7200 cd, the RRT01 Raptor Nichia 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. 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.


Mode memoryno
Ramping modeyes

The RRT01 Raptor Nichia flashlight with ramping mode has a user interface that enables you to control the brightness level by pressing and holding a button. The strobe function on the RRT01 Raptor Nichia flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect. The RRT01 Raptor Nichia has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.

The power source of the RRT01 Raptor Nichia flashlight is 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. The RRT01 Raptor Nichia doesn't have charger port. A charger port is a designated connection point or interface where you can plug in a charger to recharge the flashlight's battery. When the RRT01 Raptor Nichia flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output to prevent further discharge. This helps to preserve the battery's capacity and prevent it from reaching a critically low voltage level.

The RRT01 Raptor Nichia has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The RRT01 Raptor Nichia flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
