Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The TIR lens of S1 Mini Baton can minimize light loss and achieve high light output by capturing and redirecting a significant portion of the emitted light. This can result in improved overall beam quality, better beam control, and reduced stray light. The S1 Mini Baton 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.
600 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks, it may not be sufficient for certain scenarios or individuals with specific requirements. With 4200 cd, the S1 Mini Baton flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer 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. In some cases, a flashlight with a higher CRI may offer a more natural and pleasant viewing experience, as it can better reveal the true colors of the surroundings. This can be advantageous when using a flashlight for extended periods or in situations where visual comfort is desired. The S1 Mini Baton has an average color rendering index. With a CRI of 70, the flashlight should be capable of rendering colors more accurately than lower CRI options, making it suitable for general lighting purposes where basic color recognition and differentiation are important.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The S1 Mini Baton 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. Strobe mode on S1 Mini Baton flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations.
