The emitter of E05 manufactured by Osram, a German lighting manufacturer. Osram is a well-known and respected LED manufacturer 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 E05 has an orange peel (OP) textured reflector. Orange peel reflectors have smoother beams.
This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The E05 has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches are known for their durability and reliability. They are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. The rear switch of E05 is typically operated with the thumb or finger, making it easily accessible and convenient to use. The positioning of the switch at the rear of the flashlight allows for natural and intuitive operation, particularly in one-handed scenarios.
400 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks, it may not be sufficient for certain scenarios or individuals with specific requirements. With 4500 cd, the E05 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 is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The E05 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.
|Battery||1 x AA battery|
