Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources. The TIR lens makes the LED light collimated. It does this into efficient, well-controlled beams. These beams maximize the usable lumens in the target area. The flashlight has electronic switches. They have many benefits and extra features compared to mechanical switches.

Performance, flux, intensity, throw

Flux1000 lm
Intensity4225 cd
Throw130 m
CD/LM factor4.23

With 1000 lm, the Torchy flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The Torchy flashlight has 4225 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 cd/lm factor is the candela-to-lumen ratio. It shows how concentrated a light source's output is.

Software, user interface, modes

Modes4 modes

Ramping modeno
Strobeyes

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 Torchy is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at, this makes it hard for them to concentrate.

This flashlight can charge the battery with a built-in charger. It works with a USB power source. This flashlight has built-in low voltage protection (LVP). It prevents damage from over-discharge, so it doesn't need protected cells. This light does not have temperature control feature.
