Switchelectronic side

Cree LEDs are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. With the smooth reflector, the beam tends to have a well-defined hotspot at the center, which provides a concentrated beam of light for long-range applications. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.

The B400 flashlight with 30000 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam.
