Manker U22 II CW (U22IICW) specifications
|Name||U22 II CW|
The presence of a flashlight can provide a sense of reassurance and confidence in unfamiliar or potentially dangerous environments.
|Head diameter||51 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 183 g flashlight would be considered slightly heavier than average for a handheld flashlight, but it is still within a reasonable weight range. This weight range is often found in smaller and more compact flashlights designed for everyday use or portability. The length of the U22 II CW flashlight can affect its portability. A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go.
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. The HAIII coating can also enhance the visual appearance of the flashlight. It offers a uniform and attractive finish, often available in different colors, giving the flashlight a sleek and professional look. This flashlight features a captivating black color.
|Emitter||Osram KW CSLNM1.TG LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
The emitter of U22 II CW manufactured by Osram, a German lighting manufacturer. Osram is a well-known and respected LED manufacturer in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The smooth reflector is typically used in flashlights where long-range illumination is a priority, such as searchlights or thrower flashlights. By minimizing light scattering and maximizing light directionality, the smooth reflector can produce a tighter and more concentrated beam that reaches greater distances.
The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The U22 II CW utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
The 850 lm output of U22 II CW provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. 260000 cd represents an extraordinarily high level of brightness. 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The U22 II CW 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 U22 II CW is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
The Manker U22 II CW flashlight is powered by 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. USB rechargeable flashlights have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their convenience and sustainability. 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 U22 II CW has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The U22 II CW flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer. The powerbank function in the U22 II CW flashlights can be a valuable asset during emergencies or power outages. It allows you to charge your essential devices, such as mobile phones, to stay connected, access emergency services, or communicate with others when traditional power sources are unavailable.
|Package contents||USB Type-C OTG cable|
USB Type-C cable
The flashlight package is thoughtfully equipped with a holster, offering you a practical and secure storage solution for your flashlight. The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. When using spare O-rings, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for proper installation.
The performance of the Manker U22 II CW flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
