Luminus has established a positive reputation as a reliable LED manufacturer. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The primary function of the smooth reflector (SMO) is to precisely focus and project the light emitted from the light source into a defined beam pattern. The Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches.

Flux5200 lm
Intensity562500 cd
Throw1500 m
CD/LM factor108.17

With 5200 lm, the TM39 flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. Flashlights with extremely high luminous intensity often require significant power and generate more heat due to the increased energy output. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output.

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. 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. The TM39 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed.
