The E04 is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. Consider the length of the flashlight. It should fit comfortably in your chosen way to carry it. The aluminium body of the E04 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 E04 flashlight comes in a stylish black color.

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm, white light is generally more comfortable. It's also less harsh on the eyes than cool, white light. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain.

Throw28 m
CD/LM factor0.36

550 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks. 200 cd can make things quite bright. It's enough for many everyday tasks. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) measures a flashlight's beam intensity. It compares this to its total luminous flux or output.

The E04 flashlight's power source is 1 x 16340 Li-Ion battery. It provides reliable, long-lasting energy for top performance. A battery indicator is a feature. It shows the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. The E04 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.

Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements to dissipate heat. These elements include heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. The "8" in the IPx8 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress. Auxiliary LEDs provide extra lighting options beyond the main beam of the flashlight. The E04 flashlight is magnetic. It lets you attach the flashlight to metal surfaces.

Accessories

By including a battery with the flashlight, you avoid the extra expense. You would have to buy a battery separately. Attaching a lanyard to your E04 flashlight provides an additional layer of security. It reduces the risk of accidental drops or loss. When using spare O-rings, follow the maker's instructions. Use their guidelines for proper installation.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the Manker E04 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
