The TA5 is generally comfortable to hold for a long time. It is also easy to carry in pockets or bags. Consider the length of the flashlight. It should fit comfortably in your chosen way to carry it. The aluminium body of the TA5 has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. The HAIII coating resists corrosion well. It shields the aluminum from moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. The TA5 flashlight comes in a stylish black color.

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 AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. The TA5 flashlight has multiple switch options. They can be useful, adding versatility and convenience to using the flashlight.

The electronic switches may have a higher chance of standby drain. Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments. The TA5 flashlight has a rear switch. Its operation is usually simple and easy to understand.

Throw240 m
CD/LM factor16

With 900 lm, the TA5 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The TA5 flashlight has 14400 cd. It can light objects at greater distances. 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.

The TA5 flashlight's power source is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. It provides reliable, long-lasting energy for top performance. A battery indicator is a feature. It shows the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. The TA5 flashlight can charge from a USB power source. This source can be a wall adapter, computer, power bank, or car charger. The flashlight detects when the battery's voltage has dropped to a certain level. Then, it reduces or cuts off the power.

Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements to dissipate heat. These elements include heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. 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.

Accessories

Package contents18650 battery
2 x spare o-rings

By including a battery with the flashlight, you avoid the extra expense. You would have to buy a battery separately. Attaching a lanyard to your TA5 flashlight provides an additional layer of security. It reduces the risk of accidental drops or loss. When using spare O-rings, follow the maker's instructions. Use their guidelines for proper installation.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the Nextorch TA5 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
