Luminus LEDs are known for their efficiency, brightness, color accuracy, and long lifespan. They offer a wide range of LED products with different characteristics to meet the diverse needs of the market. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The Warrior 3 uses a smooth reflector. Unlike the textured surface of an orange peel reflector, a smooth reflector has a polished, mirror-like surface.
This TIR lens offers flexibility in achieving various beam patterns, from wide-angle illumination to focused spotlights, depending on the specific design of the lens. The Warrior 3 uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. This is particularly helpful in situations where you need to hold or manipulate objects with one hand while using the flashlight with the other hand.

This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The Warrior 3 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.
