Noctigon K1 XHP35 (K1XHP35) specifications
Flashlights are compact and lightweight, making them highly portable. They can easily fit into pockets, backpacks, or glove compartments, allowing you to carry them wherever you go.
|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.
Aluminium body of K1 XHP35 is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments. 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 choice of flashlight body color can be influenced by factors such as intended use, environment, personal style, and functional requirements.
|Emitter||Cree XHP35 HI LED|
|Color temperature||4000 K, 6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. 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 smooth surface allows for greater reflectivity and light concentration, resulting in a more focused and intense beam with a longer throw distance.
This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The K1 XHP35 has electronic switch. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches since they require a small amount of power for operation.
With 2000 lm, the K1 XHP35 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. The K1 XHP35 is a 290000 cd flashlight. 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. 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.
Anduril software offers various output modes, including multiple brightness levels, strobe modes, beacon modes, and more. Users can easily cycle through these modes or customize the behavior according to their preferences. The K1 XHP35 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 ramping mode of the K1 XHP35 is intuitive, and lets you seamlessly ramp the output up and down over almost the entire output range.
The strobe function on the K1 XHP35 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect. The K1 XHP35 has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The power source of the K1 XHP35 flashlight is 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator on a flashlight is beneficial as it allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. It helps prevent unexpected power failures during critical situations and ensures that the flashlight is ready for use when needed.
This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. When the K1 XHP35 flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output to prevent further discharge. This helps to preserve the battery's capacity and prevent it from reaching a critically low voltage level. 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 XHP35 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The "7" in the IP67 rating indicates that the K1 XHP35 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 package includes a holster to safely store your flashlight. By securing the flashlight with a lanyard, you can free up your hands for other tasks while keeping the flashlight within reach. Having spare O-rings allows you to replace them as needed, ensuring that the flashlight maintains its water-tight seal and remains protected from moisture or water ingress.
The performance of the Noctigon K1 XHP35 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.
