The emitter of MC13 manufactured by Osram, a German lighting manufacturer. A TIR lens works on the principle of total internal reflection. The TIR lens collimates the LED light into efficient, well-controlled light beams that maximize the usable lumens in the target area.
|Emitter||Osram KW CULNM1.TG LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
The throw is the calculated 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. 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.
The MC13 has mode memory. Mode memory means that the light will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. The MC13 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 MC13 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. 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 built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating.
|Battery||1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
It comes with a battery. The battery must be fully charged before you first use your MC13. The clip is useful to keep the light secured in your pocket. The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight.
