The 1000 lm output of MT10 provides great flexibility. You can adjust the brightness to fit different needs. The MT10 flashlight has 8100 cd. It provides a much brighter and more intense beam. The throw distance is the farthest distance the flashlight can light an object. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) measures a flashlight's beam intensity. It compares this to its total luminous flux or output. If accurate color is a priority for you, choose a flashlight with a CRI of 90 or above. The CRI of 65 can still be sufficient for many general lighting applications. Color fidelity is not critical in these cases.
