The MT10 generally comfortable to hold for extended periods and easy to carry in pockets or bags. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. A longer flashlight may provide a more substantial grip, making it easier to hold and control, especially if you have larger hands. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for MT10 flashlight.
The HAIII coating can also enhance the visual appearance of the flashlight. It offers a uniform and attractive finish, often available in different colors, giving the flashlight a sleek and professional look. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.
|Color temperature||6000 K|
Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The MT10 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 MT10 has electronic switch. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches since they require a small amount of power for operation.
The 1000 lm output of MT10 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 8100 cd, the MT10 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. If accurate color representation is a priority for your specific needs, a flashlight with a CRI of 90 or above is highly recommended. The MT10 may not provide the highest level of color accuracy. The CRI of 65 can still be sufficient for many general lighting applications where color fidelity is not critical.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The strobe function on the MT10 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The power source of the MT10 flashlight is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator on a flashlight is beneficial as it allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. It helps prevent unexpected power failures during critical situations and ensures that the flashlight is ready for use when needed.
When the MT10 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 MT10 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 "5" in the IP54 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. The IP54 rated flashlight is protected against dust ingress to a limited extent.
