Mateminco G01 XPL (G01XPL) specifications
This headlamp is designed to emit light in the direction you are looking. This feature allows you to focus the beam precisely where you need it, providing better visibility and reducing the risk of accidents or mistakes.
|Head diameter||24.8 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 122 g flashlight is generally comfortable to hold for extended periods and easy to carry in pockets or bags. They are suitable for various applications such as camping, hiking, or emergency situations. A 120-gram flashlight strikes a good balance between functionality, convenience, and weight. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue.
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 process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. The G01 XPL flashlight is available in a variety of colors, and the choice of color can serve different purposes and preferences.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L HD LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K, 6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The G01 XPL has an OP reflector. The advantage of the orange peel (OP) reflector is that it can minimize glare and reduce eye strain, as the diffused light is gentler on the eyes compared to a focused, concentrated beam.
The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The G01 XPL has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.
The 1200 lm output of G01 XPL provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 8500 cd, the G01 XPL flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer distances. 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.
Anduril firmware is known for its user-friendly interface and extensive feature set. It is primarily used in flashlights that are compatible with firmware upgrades, allowing flashlight enthusiasts to enhance and personalize their flashlight's performance. The G01 XPL 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.
Instead of having predefined brightness levels or fixed modes, the ramping mode lets you adjust the light intensity seamlessly within a specific range. Strobe mode on G01 XPL flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations. SOS mode of the G01 XPL produces a specific sequence of long and short flashes to signal distress or emergency situations. It is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
The G01 XPL flashlight utilizes 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The G01 XPL 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. USB rechargeable flashlights have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their convenience and sustainability.
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. The G01 XPL 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 "7" in the IPx7 rating indicates that the G01 XPL flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged. Auxiliary LEDs are typically designed to consume less power compared to the main lighting source, such as a white LED. This energy-efficient feature allows for extended battery life, ensuring longer usage time before needing to recharge or replace batteries. The G01 XPL flashlight is magnetic. It allows you to attach the flashlight to metal surfaces, freeing up your hands for other tasks.
