The 46 g flashlight may not provide the same level of brightness or features as larger models. A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go. The aluminium bodies can be anodized, providing a protective layer and a wide range of color options for flashlight bodies. Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. This flashlight features a captivating black color.

The 900 lm output of H04 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 3800 cd, the H04 flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. The throw distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam.

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. 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 H04 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed.
