Nextorch TA10 (TA10) specifications
Flashlights are compact and lightweight, making them highly portable. They can easily fit into pockets, backpacks, or glove compartments, allowing you to carry them wherever you go.
|Body diameter||22 mm|
|Head diameter||29.2 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 89 g flashlight would generally be considered lightweight and easy to handle for most people. The length of the TA10 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 body of TA10 is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments.
Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. The TA10 flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L HD LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
The emitter of TA10 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. 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 TA10 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.
This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The TA10 has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches are known for their durability and reliability. They are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. The rear switch of TA10 is typically operated with the thumb or finger, making it easily accessible and convenient to use. The positioning of the switch at the rear of the flashlight allows for natural and intuitive operation, particularly in one-handed scenarios.
560 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks, it may not be sufficient for certain scenarios or individuals with specific requirements. With 7225 cd, the TA10 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 TA10 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||1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery|
The Nextorch TA10 flashlight is powered by 1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery. The TA10 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. A protected battery is recommended as the light itself does not have low voltage protection (LVP). This light does not have temperature control feature. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
The clip is useful to keep the light secured in your pocket. The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. Having spare O-rings allows you to replace them as needed, ensuring that the flashlight maintains its water-tight seal and remains protected from moisture or water ingress.
The performance of the Nextorch TA10 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.
