Luminus has established a positive reputation as a reliable LED manufacturer, and their products are widely used and trusted by lighting professionals and enthusiasts alike. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The TIR lens of E2A consists of a single-piece lens made of a transparent material, typically acrylic or polycarbonate. Its shape and internal geometry are designed to achieve specific light distribution patterns, such as flood or spot beams, by manipulating the behavior of light rays.
If you mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys, navigating in dimly lit areas, or occasional use around the house, 600 lm can be adequate. With 4100 cd, the E2A 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 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.
The E2A 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.
|Battery||1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery|
