Lumintop FW3A XP-L HI (FW3AXPLHI) specifications
|Name||FW3A XP-L HI|
Flashlights enable you to navigate in the dark, locate supplies, signal for help, or provide comfort and security in challenging circumstances.
|Head diameter||25.5 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 53 g flashlight would be considered extremely lightweight for a handheld flashlight. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for FW3A XP-L HI flashlight. Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. This flashlight offers a wide array of color options, allowing you to choose from a diverse range of hues to suit your personal style and preferences.
|Emitter||3 x Cree XP-L HI LEDs|
|Color temperature||5000 K, 6500 K|
The emitter of FW3A XP-L HI 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 TIR lens of FW3A XP-L HI consists of a single-piece lens made of a transparent material, typically acrylic or polycarbonate. Its shape and internal geometry are designed to achieve specific light distribution patterns, such as flood or spot beams, by manipulating the behavior of light rays.
The FW3A XP-L HI utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches. The placement of the rear switch at the end of the FW3A XP-L HI flashlight facilitates a secure forward grip. This grip allows for better control and handling of the flashlight, especially in situations where precision and stability are important.
The 2800 lm output of FW3A XP-L HI provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 10000 cd, the FW3A XP-L HI 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.
Anduril allows users to customize various parameters, such as mode spacing, mode order, and shortcuts, to tailor the flashlight's behavior to their specific needs and preferences. The FW3A XP-L HI 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 FW3A XP-L HI flashlight with ramping mode has a user interface that enables you to control the brightness level by pressing and holding a button.
The FW3A XP-L HI 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||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The Lumintop FW3A XP-L HI flashlight is powered by 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The FW3A XP-L HI 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 FW3A XP-L HI 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 FW3A XP-L HI flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
The clip provides flexibility in how you carry your flashlight. Regularly replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps maintain the overall durability and performance of the flashlight.
The performance of the Lumintop FW3A XP-L HI 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.
