|Body diameter||26.5 mm|
|Head diameter||72 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 318 g flashlight would be considered relatively heavy for a handheld flashlight. Flashlights in this weight range may have features like extended battery life, intense brightness, or rugged construction for heavy-duty use. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. A longer flashlight may provide a more substantial grip, making it easier to hold and control, especially if you have larger hands.
The aluminium body of K1 W1 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery. The HAIII coating often has a matte or textured finish, which enhances grip and provides a comfortable feel in the hand. This can be particularly useful in situations where a secure grip on the flashlight is essential, such as in wet or slippery conditions. The K1 W1 flashlight presents an extensive selection of vibrant colors: black, gray, green, silver.
|Emitter||Osram KW CSLNM1.TG LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
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. With the smooth reflector of the K1 W1, 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. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the K1 W1 flashlight. The K1 W1 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.
With 900 lm, the K1 W1 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. With 650000 cd, this Noctigon flashlight will produce an extremely intense and powerful beam of light. It will provide an unparalleled level of brightness and visibility, capable of illuminating objects or areas with exceptional clarity even at very long distances.
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. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.
Anduril is designed to be firmware-upgradable, which means users can benefit from ongoing improvements and new features by installing updated versions of the firmware as they become available. The K1 W1 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. The advantage of the ramping mode is that it offers precise control over the amount of light emitted by the flashlight.
Strobe mode on K1 W1 flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations. SOS mode of the K1 W1 produces a specific sequence of long and short flashes to signal distress or emergency situations. It is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The K1 W1 flashlight utilizes 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The K1 W1 has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. The USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited.
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. The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "6" in the IP67 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the K1 W1 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects.
The "7" in the IP67 rating indicates that the K1 W1 flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged. It is important to consider the impact resistance rating when selecting a flashlight, especially if you anticipate using it in situations where accidental drops or impacts are likely to occur.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
spare rubber cover
The holster provides a reliable and convenient way to keep your flashlight securely protected when not in use.
