360 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. 1400 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. 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.
|Battery||integrated 500 mAh Li-Ion battery|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The TIP SS flashlight utilizes integrated 500 mAh Li-Ion battery as its power source. The TIP SS has a battery indicator.
