|Emitter||Osram P8 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
Osram LEDs are known for their high performance, energy efficiency, and reliability. They provide a range of options in terms of brightness, color temperature, color rendering, and beam characteristics to meet different lighting requirements. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The TIR lens of Tiki LE consists of a single-piece lens made of a transparent material, typically acrylic or polycarbonate. Its shape and internal geometry are designed to achieve specific light distribution patterns, such as flood or spot beams, by manipulating the behavior of light rays. The Tiki LE 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.
If you mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys, navigating in dimly lit areas, or occasional use around the house, 300 lm can be adequate. 1260 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. 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. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences.
|Battery||integrated Li-Ion battery|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The Tiki LE flashlight utilizes integrated Li-Ion battery as its power source. The Tiki LE flashlight can be charged directly from a USB power source, such as a wall adapter, computer, power bank, or car charger. This allows for convenient and versatile charging options, as you can utilize various USB power sources to recharge the flashlight's internal battery. LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage.
This flashlight doesn't have built-in temperature control. Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements for heat dissipation, such as heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. The "6" in the IP66 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the Tiki LE flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects.
The IP66 rating indicates that the Tiki LE flashlight has a protection against water jets. With an impressive impact resistance rating of 1 m, the Tiki LE flashlight is built to endure accidental drops or impacts, ensuring its resilience and dependable performance in demanding situations. Auxiliary LEDs with different color options or specialized modes can be beneficial for specific tasks.
The performance of the Nitecore Tiki LE 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.
