This 371 g flashlight might feel relatively heavy if held in hand. A balanced flashlight has even weight. It can be more comfortable to hold for longer and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of the G35 has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. The HAIII coating is uniform and attractive. It is often available in different colors, giving the flashlight a sleek, pro look. The G35 flashlight comes in a stylish black color.

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 G35 flashlight has multiple switch options. They can be useful, adding versatility and convenience to using the flashlight.

The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain. Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments. The rear switch is at the end of the G35 flashlight. It helps you hold it securely.

Flux2000 lm
Intensity252506 cd
Throw1005 m
CD/LM factor126.25

With 2000 lm, the G35 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. 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.

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 G35 flashlight has a strobe function. It produces a rapid, repetitive flashing of light. The SOS signal is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.

The G35 flashlight's power source is 3 x 18650 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. The G35 cannot charge batteries. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. 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 "8" in the IPx8 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress.

When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it gives a more secure hold. It also gives a more stable hold. When using spare O-rings, follow the maker's instructions. Use their guidelines for proper installation.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the G35 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
