The 98 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 E14 II XPG3 flashlight. The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.
|Emitter||4 x Cree XP-G3 LEDs|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The TIR lens of E14 II XPG3 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 E14 II XPG3 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.
The 2200 lm output of E14 II XPG3 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 6000 cd, the E14 II XPG3 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 E14 II XPG3 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 E14 II XPG3 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The power source of the E14 II XPG3 flashlight is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery, 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 E14 II XPG3 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 E14 II XPG3 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.
The E14 II XPG3 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 E14 II XPG3 flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
|Package contents||18650 battery|
The included battery is selected to meet the specific power requirements of the E14 II XPG3 flashlight, ensuring reliable and efficient operation.
