Flashlights enable you to navigate in the dark, locate supplies, signal for help, or provide comfort and security in challenging circumstances.
|Body diameter||54 mm|
|Head diameter||72 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The MT18S flashlight is a bit heavy, its weight is 498 g. It's important to consider the intended use and personal comfort when choosing a flashlight of this weight. The length of the MT18S 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. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for MT18S flashlight.
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. This flashlight offers a wide array of color options, allowing you to choose from a diverse range of hues to suit your personal style and preferences.
|Emitter||18 x Luminus SST20 LEDs|
|Color temperature||4000 K, 5000 K, 6500 K|
The emitter of MT18S manufactured by Luminus, a US-based LED manufacturer. Luminus is recognized as a reputable LED manufacturer in the lighting industry. They are known for producing high-quality LEDs with excellent performance and reliability. 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 TIR lens of MT18S consists of a single-piece lens made of a transparent material, typically acrylic or polycarbonate. Its shape and internal geometry are designed to achieve specific light distribution patterns, such as flood or spot beams, by manipulating the behavior of light rays. The MT18S utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
The MT18S flashlight with 15000 lm is an extremely high lumen output and offers an incredibly bright and powerful beam of light. 95000 cd represents an extremely high level of brightness for a flashlight. 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. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm.
Anduril allows users to customize various parameters, such as mode spacing, mode order, and shortcuts, to tailor the flashlight's behavior to their specific needs and preferences. The MT18S 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 MT18S flashlight with ramping mode has a user interface that enables you to control the brightness level by pressing and holding a button.
The MT18S is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.
|Battery||4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries|
The Mateminco MT18S flashlight is powered by 4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The MT18S doesn't have charger port. A charger port is a designated connection point or interface where you can plug in a charger to recharge the flashlight's battery. 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 MT18S 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 MT18S flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged. It has auxiliary LEDs which make it really nice looking.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
tripod mount screw
The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. Regularly replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps maintain the overall durability and performance of the flashlight.
The performance of the Mateminco MT18S 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.
