The emitter of TC02 Nichia manufactured by Nichia, a Japanese LED manufacturer. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. 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.

CRI90

150 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. 300 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. 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.

In some cases, a flashlight with a higher CRI may offer a more natural and pleasant viewing experience, as it can better reveal the true colors of the surroundings. This can be advantageous when using a flashlight for extended periods or in situations where visual comfort is desired. With a CRI of 90 the TC02 Nichia flashlight can provide true-to-life color representation, making it ideal for applications where accurate color discrimination is crucial.

The TC02 Nichia flashlight utilizes 1 x 14200 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The TC02 Nichia has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source.

LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage. This flashlight doesn't have built-in temperature control. Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements for heat dissipation, such as heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. The IPx6 rating indicates that the TC02 Nichia flashlight has a protection against water jets.
