The presence of a flashlight can provide a sense of reassurance and confidence in unfamiliar or potentially dangerous environments.


Weight16.6 g
Length37.4 mm
Head diameter18 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

The 16.6 g flashlight may not provide the same level of brightness or features as larger models, it can be handy for quick and convenient illumination in emergency situations or for close-range tasks. It's important to consider the length of the flashlight to ensure it fits comfortably in your desired carrying method. The aluminium bodies can be anodized, providing a protective layer and a wide range of color options for flashlight bodies. Anodizing enhances the corrosion resistance, hardness, and scratch resistance of the aluminum, while also allowing for a variety of attractive finishes.

Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. The TC02 XP-G3 offers an impressive assortment of captivating colors: black, blue, red.

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. This TIR lens offers flexibility in achieving various beam patterns, from wide-angle illumination to focused spotlights, depending on the specific design of the lens.


Flux150 lm
Intensity300 cd
Throw35 m
CD/LM factor2

If you mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys, navigating in dimly lit areas, or occasional use around the house, 150 lm can be adequate. 300 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. 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. Flashlights with a higher cd/lm ratio typically excel in long-range throw and focused beam applications, while flashlights with a lower cd/lm ratio may provide a wider and more evenly distributed beam for closer-range illumination or general-purpose use.


Modes3 modes

Ramping modeno

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The TC02 XP-G3 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 power source of the TC02 XP-G3 flashlight is 1 x 14200 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.

USB rechargeable flashlights have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their convenience and sustainability. When the TC02 XP-G3 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.

Flashlights without thermal protection may be more susceptible to overheating under extreme conditions, such as prolonged high-output use or exposure to high ambient temperatures. The IPx6 rating indicates that the TC02 XP-G3 flashlight has a protection against water jets.
