The emitter of BLF GT4 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The BLF GT4 uses orange peel (OP) textured reflector. The orange peel (OP) reflector is a specific type of reflector commonly used in flashlights. It is named after its distinctive textured surface, which resembles the skin of an orange.
The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The BLF GT4 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
This high-lumen (25000 lm) flashlight may not always be necessary or practical for everyday use. 469100 cd represents an extraordinarily high level of brightness. 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.
NarsilM offers a variety of output modes, including multiple brightness levels, strobe modes, beacon modes, and more. Users can easily switch between these modes or customize the behavior to suit their preferences. The BLF GT4 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. The BLF GT4 flashlight with ramping mode has a user interface that enables you to control the brightness level by pressing and holding a button.
The BLF GT4 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.
|Battery||8 x 21700 Li-Ion batteries|
The Lumintop BLF GT4 flashlight is powered by 8 x 21700 Li-Ion batteries. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The BLF GT4 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. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
The BLF GT4 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 "6" in the IP65 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the BLF GT4 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The IP65 rating indicates that the BLF GT4 flashlight has a protection against water jets.
The performance of the Lumintop BLF GT4 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.
