The T02 generally comfortable to hold for extended periods and easy to carry in pockets or bags. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. Aluminium body of T02 is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion. HAIII coating is widely used in the flashlight industry due to its durability, corrosion resistance, improved grip, and aesthetic appeal. The T02 flashlight is available in black.

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The primary function of the smooth reflector (SMO) is to precisely focus and project the light emitted from the light source into a defined beam pattern. The Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches.


Flux1500 lm
Intensity11200 cd
Throw212 m
CD/LM factor7.47

With 1500 lm, the T02 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The T02 flashlight with 11200 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output.


Modes5 modes

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. 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 T02 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. The SOS signal is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.

The power source of the T02 flashlight is 2 x 14500 Li-Ion or 2 x AA NiMH batteries, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. The T02 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.

This light does not have temperature control feature. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
