|Body diameter||27.5 mm|
|Head diameter||35 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The Seeker 2 generally comfortable to hold for extended periods and easy to carry in pockets or bags. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. Aluminium body of Seeker 2 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 can also enhance the visual appearance of the flashlight. It offers a uniform and attractive finish, often available in different colors, giving the flashlight a sleek and professional look. The choice of flashlight body color can be influenced by factors such as intended use, environment, personal style, and functional requirements.
|Emitter||3 x Osram P9 LEDs|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
Osram has a reputation for producing LEDs that deliver consistent quality and durability. Their products often undergo rigorous testing and adhere to industry standards to ensure high performance and longevity. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. A TIR lens works on the principle of total internal reflection. The TIR lens collimates the LED light into efficient, well-controlled light beams that maximize the usable lumens in the target area. The Seeker 2 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 3000 lm, the Seeker 2 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 Seeker 2 flashlight with 12100 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The Seeker 2 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 Seeker 2 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect.
|Battery||1 x special 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||magnetic USB|
The power source of the Seeker 2 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.
This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. 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 "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
