|Emitter||6 x Cree XHP50.2 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. 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. The MK36 XHP 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 MK36 XHP flashlight with 12000 lm is an extremely high lumen output and offers an incredibly bright and powerful beam of light. The MK36 XHP flashlight with 22000 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required. 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 MK36 XHP 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.
