|Body diameter||25.4 mm|
|Head diameter||34.8 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 118 g flashlight would be considered slightly heavier than average for a handheld flashlight, but it is still within a reasonable weight range. This weight range is often found in smaller and more compact flashlights designed for everyday use or portability. It's important to consider the length of the flashlight to ensure it fits comfortably in your desired carrying method. Aluminium body of KR20 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 provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting the underlying aluminum from exposure to moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. It helps maintain the appearance and functionality of the flashlight, even in harsh environments. The KR20 flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L HI LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
|Switch||electronic side, mechanical rear|
The emitter of KR20 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 KR20 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.
This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The multiple switch configuration on the KR20 flashlight can be a useful option, providing additional versatility and convenience in operating the flashlight. The KR20 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
The KR20 has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches are known for their durability and reliability. They are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. The KR20 uses a reear switch. Rear switches are commonly found on tactical flashlights designed for law enforcement, military, and self-defense purposes. The rear switch allows for quick and easy momentary activation or constant-on activation, enabling rapid response and tactical maneuvering.
With 1100 lm, the KR20 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 KR20 flashlight with 28360 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 KR20 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 KR20 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.

The Rofis KR20 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. This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. 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 "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
|Package contents||18650 battery|
