A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go. The aluminium body of Archer has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.

HAIII coating is widely used in the flashlight industry due to its durability, corrosion resistance, improved grip, and aesthetic appeal. The Archer flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.


Emitterunspecified LED
Color temperature6500 K
Switchelectronic side

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. The Archer 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.


Flux1000 lm
Intensity72656 cd
Throw539 m
CD/LM factor72.66

With 1000 lm, the Archer 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 intense brightness of a 72656 cd flashlight can provide exceptional visibility and enhance safety in low-light or dark environments. It can help with target identification, provide effective signaling capabilities, or serve as a powerful tool for self-defense.

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.


Modes4 modes

Ramping modeno

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The Archer 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 strobe function on the Archer 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 power source of the Archer flashlight is 1 x special 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.

The USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited. A protected battery is recommended as the light itself does not have low voltage protection (LVP). The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "7" in the IPx7 rating indicates that the Archer flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged. The Archer flashlight proudly boasts an exceptional impact resistance rating of 1 m.
