This 1290 g flashlight is quite heavy for a handheld flashlight. A smaller flashlight is easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch. This makes it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go. The aluminium body of the MT35 Plus has a reputation for being durable and strong. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion. The HAIII process makes a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum. This makes it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. Factors can influence the color choice of the flashlight body. These include intended use, environment, personal style, and requirements.

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm, white light is generally more comfortable. It's also less harsh on the eyes than cool, white light. The SMO's main job is to focus and project light from the source. It does this into a defined beam pattern. The coating is thin and applied to the lens surface. It cuts reflections and boosts light transmission. The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain.

Throw2417 m
CD/LM factor540.74

With 2700 lm, the MT35 Plus flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. These flashlights have very high intensity. They need lots of power and make a lot of heat, this is because they have high energy output. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) measures a flashlight's beam intensity. It compares this to its total luminous flux or output.

Software, user interface, modes

Modes4 modes

A flashlight's modes are different output settings or brightness levels. They can be chosen to meet different needs and preferences. 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 MT35 Plus is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at, this makes it hard for them to concentrate. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed.

The MT35 Plus flashlight's power source is 4 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries. It provides reliable, long-lasting energy for top performance. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The MT35 Plus cannot charge batteries. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. This flashlight has built-in low voltage protection (LVP). It prevents damage from over-discharge, so it doesn't need protected cells.

The thermal protection feature helps prevent overheating. Overheating can harm the flashlight's performance, battery, and safety. 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.
