Luminus LEDs are known for their efficiency, brightness, color accuracy, and long lifespan. They offer a wide range of LED products with different characteristics to meet the diverse needs of the market. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The MH10S uses a smooth reflector. Unlike the textured surface of an orange peel reflector, a smooth reflector has a polished, mirror-like surface.
The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The MH10S has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.
The 1800 lm output of MH10S provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. The MH10S flashlight with 21600 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required. The throw distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The stated throw distance typically indicates the point at which the brightness falls below a specified threshold, such as 0.25 lux. Flashlights with a higher cd/lm ratio typically excel in long-range throw and focused beam applications, while flashlights with a lower cd/lm ratio may provide a wider and more evenly distributed beam for closer-range illumination or general-purpose use.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The MH10S 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.
