Noctigon K1 W2 (K1W2) specifications
The presence of a flashlight can provide a sense of reassurance and confidence in unfamiliar or potentially dangerous environments.
|Body diameter||26.5 mm|
|Head diameter||72 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
Flashlights in weight range of the K1 W2 (318 g) may have features like extended battery life, intense brightness, or rugged construction for heavy-duty use. It's important to consider the length of the flashlight to ensure it fits comfortably in your desired carrying method. The aluminium bodies can be anodized, providing a protective layer and a wide range of color options for flashlight bodies. Anodizing enhances the corrosion resistance, hardness, and scratch resistance of the aluminum, while also allowing for a variety of attractive finishes.
Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. This flashlight offers a wide array of color options, allowing you to choose from a diverse range of hues to suit your personal style and preferences.
|Emitter||Osram KW CULPM1.TG LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
The emitter of K1 W2 manufactured by Osram, a German lighting manufacturer. Osram is a well-known and respected LED manufacturer in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The smooth reflector is typically used in flashlights where long-range illumination is a priority, such as searchlights or thrower flashlights. By minimizing light scattering and maximizing light directionality, the smooth reflector can produce a tighter and more concentrated beam that reaches greater distances.
The AR coating on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments. The K1 W2 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
The 1500 lm output of K1 W2 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. 600000 cd represents an extraordinarily high level of brightness. 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.
Anduril allows users to customize various parameters, such as mode spacing, mode order, and shortcuts, to tailor the flashlight's behavior to their specific needs and preferences. The K1 W2 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. Instead of having predefined brightness levels or fixed modes, the ramping mode lets you adjust the light intensity seamlessly within a specific range.
The K1 W2 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The Noctigon K1 W2 flashlight is powered by 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. USB rechargeable flashlights have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their convenience and sustainability. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
The K1 W2 has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The "6" in the IP67 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the K1 W2 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects.
The "7" in the IP67 rating indicates that the K1 W2 flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged. This flashlight is designed to withstand impacts of up to 1 m without sustaining significant damage, ensuring its durability and reliability even in challenging conditions.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
spare rubber cover
The flashlight package is thoughtfully equipped with a holster, offering you a practical and secure storage solution for your flashlight. Attaching a lanyard to your K1 W2 flashlight provides an additional layer of security, reducing the risk of accidental drops or loss. When using spare O-rings, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for proper installation.
The performance of the Noctigon K1 W2 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.
