Lumintop E05C (E05C) specifications
This Lumintop flashlight offers portability, versatility, and reliability in providing illumination.
|Head diameter||20.4 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 68.7 g flashlight would be considered extremely lightweight for a handheld flashlight. 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 E05C 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.
|Emitter||1 x Cree XP-L HI LED, 4 x Nichia NCSLE17 LEDs|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. 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 E05C 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 E05C 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.
If you mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys, navigating in dimly lit areas, or occasional use around the house, 550 lm can be adequate. With 6400 cd, the E05C 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The E05C 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 strobe function on the E05C 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 E05C has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.
|Battery||1 x 14500 Li-Ion|
|Specials||secondary side emitter|
The power source of the E05C flashlight is 1 x 14500 Li-Ion, 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.
The E05C flashlight can be charged directly from a USB power source, such as a wall adapter, computer, power bank, or car charger. This allows for convenient and versatile charging options, as you can utilize various USB power sources to recharge the flashlight's internal battery. When the E05C 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.
Flashlights without thermal protection may be more susceptible to overheating under extreme conditions, such as prolonged high-output use or exposure to high ambient temperatures. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the E05C flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects.
The E05C flashlight with IP68 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer. The E05C flashlight effortlessly clings to metal surfaces, granting you the freedom to go hands-free and explore versatile mounting possibilities.
With a clip, you can securely fasten the flashlight to a reachable location, ensuring it is easily accessible whenever you need it. Regularly replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps maintain the overall durability and performance of the flashlight.
The performance of the Lumintop E05C 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.
