The GT Micro is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. A balanced flashlight has even weight. It can be more comfortable to hold for longer and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of the GT Micro has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. HAIII is a specific anodizing process. It creates a thicker and harder oxide layer than regular anodizing. The GT Micro flashlight comes in a stylish black color.

Switchelectronic side

Lighting professionals trust Cree LEDs. Cree LEDs have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The color temperature choice depends on the light's use and personal taste. The smooth reflector creates a well-defined hotspot at the center. This hotspot provides a concentrated beam for long-range use. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.

Throw400 m
CD/LM factor40

With 1000 lm, the GT Micro flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The GT Micro flashlight has 40000 cd. It can light objects at greater distances. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 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.

NarsilM firmware includes thermal regulation. It monitors and adjusts the flashlight's output based on temperature. The flashlight has mode memory. It remembers the mode you were using when the light was last turned off. It stays in that mode when you turn it on again. The ramping mode has an advantage. It offers precise control over the light amount emitted by the flashlight. The GT Micro flashlight has a strobe function. It produces a rapid, repetitive flashing of light. The SOS signal is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.

The GT Micro flashlight utilizes 1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery as its power source. A battery indicator lets users see the battery status. It helps them decide when to recharge or replace the battery. The GT Micro cannot charge batteries. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. The flashlight detects when the battery's voltage has dropped to a certain level. Then, it reduces or cuts off the power.

The GT Micro has thermal protection feature. These mechanisms track and regulate the flashlight's temperature as it operates. The "6" in the IP68 rating shows the level of protection. It's against solid objects, like dust and foreign particles. The "8" in the IP68 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress.

Accessories, package contents

Package contents2 x spare o-rings
lanyard

When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it gives a more secure hold. It also gives a more stable hold. Instead of searching for matching O-rings, having spare O-rings allows quick fixes.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the GT Micro flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
