The 75.5 g flashlight would be considered extremely lightweight for a handheld flashlight. The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for KR10 flashlight. 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. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L HI LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
|Switch||electronic side, mechanical rear|
The emitter of KR10 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The smooth reflector is typically used in flashlights where long-range illumination is a priority, such as searchlights or thrower flashlights. By minimizing light scattering and maximizing light directionality, the smooth reflector can produce a tighter and more concentrated beam that reaches greater distances.
The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The KR10 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.
The KR10 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches. The KR10 has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. This feedback helps users confirm that the switch has been activated or deactivated, providing a reassuring sense of control and awareness. The rear switch of KR10 is designed to be rugged and durable, capable of withstanding harsh conditions and repeated use.
The 1100 lm output of KR10 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. The KR10 flashlight with 16512 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 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. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The KR10 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 KR10 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The Rofis KR10 flashlight is powered by 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The KR10 flashlight can be charged directly from a USB power source, such as a wall adapter, computer, power bank, or car charger. This allows for convenient and versatile charging options, as you can utilize various USB power sources to recharge the flashlight's internal battery.
This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary. This light does not have temperature control feature. The KR10 flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
|Package contents||18650 battery|
spare USB plug
Obtaining a flashlight with an included battery saves you the time and effort of searching for a compatible battery or waiting for a separate battery to arrive. The package comes complete with a holster designed specifically to provide a secure and protective storage solution for your flashlight. When the flashlight is clipped to a suitable location, it can be angled or positioned to provide hands-free illumination.
The lanyard of KR10 helps protect the flashlight from accidental damage by preventing it from falling or hitting the ground. Regularly replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps maintain the overall durability and performance of the flashlight.
The performance of the Rofis KR10 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.
