The flashlight weighs 122 g. It is generally comfortable to hold for a long time, and it is also easy to carry in pockets or bags. A balanced flashlight has even weight. It can be more comfortable to hold for longer and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of the G01 SST20 has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. The HAIII coating is often matte or textured. This finish improves grip and feels nice in the hand. The G01 SST20 flashlight presents an extensive selection of vibrant colors: black, gray, green, silver.

People know Luminus LEDs for their efficiency, brightness, color accuracy, and long lifespan. The color temperature choice depends on the light's use and personal taste. The designers of the G01 SST20 incorporated an orange peel reflector to enhance the beam. It does this by diffusing the light from the light source. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.

Performance, flux, intensity, throw

Flux1000 lm
Intensity6900 cd
Throw166 m
CD/LM factor6.9

With 1000 lm, the G01 SST20 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The G01 SST20 flashlight has 6900 cd. It provides a much brighter and more intense beam. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam.

Anduril can be firmware-upgradable. Users can benefit from ongoing improvements and new features by installing updates. The flashlight has mode memory. It remembers the mode you were using when the light was last turned off. It stays in that mode when you turn it on again. The ramping mode has an advantage. It offers precise control over the light amount emitted by the flashlight. The G01 SST20 flashlight has a strobe function. It produces a rapid, repetitive flashing of light. The SOS signal is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.

The G01 SST20 flashlight utilizes 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery as its power source. A battery indicator lets users see the battery status. It helps them decide when to recharge or replace the battery. A flashlight's USB charger can be very useful. This is especially true in emergencies. In such situations, access to power outlets may be limited. The flashlight detects when the battery's voltage has dropped to a certain level. Then, it reduces or cuts off the power.

The G01 SST20 has thermal protection feature. These mechanisms track and regulate the flashlight's temperature as it operates. The "7" in the IPx7 rating shows that the flashlight can survive being submerged in water. It can withstand a certain depth for a limited time without getting damaged. Auxiliary LEDs usually use less power than the main light source. For example, a white LED. This flashlight has a magnetic base. It lets it easily stick to metal surfaces.

Accessories, package contents

The clip provides flexibility in how you carry your flashlight. When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it gives a more secure hold. It also gives a more stable hold. Instead of searching for matching O-rings, having spare O-rings allows quick fixes.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the G01 SST20 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
