The Torchy flashlight enhances safety by illuminating potential hazards and improving visibility in low-light conditions.
|Head diameter||25 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 62 g flashlight would generally be considered lightweight and easy to handle for most people. The length of the Torchy 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.

HAIII coating is widely used in the flashlight industry due to its durability, corrosion resistance, improved grip, and aesthetic appeal. The Torchy flashlight is available in black.
|Color temperature||6500 K|
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. A TIR lens works on the principle of total internal reflection. The TIR lens collimates the LED light into efficient, well-controlled light beams that maximize the usable lumens in the target area. The Torchy utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
With 1000 lm, the Torchy flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. With 4225 cd, the Torchy 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 is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The Torchy 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 Torchy is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.
|Battery||1 x 16340 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||magnetic USB|
The Nebo Torchy flashlight is powered by 1 x 16340 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. 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.
