Lighting professionals trust Cree LEDs. Cree LEDs have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The color temperature choice depends on the light's use and personal taste. The TIR lens makes the LED light collimated. It does this into efficient, well-controlled beams. These beams maximize the usable lumens in the target area. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.

With 900 lm, the H04 RC flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The H04 RC flashlight has 3800 cd. It provides a much brighter and more intense beam. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 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.

A flashlight's modes are different output settings or brightness levels. They can be chosen to meet different needs and preferences. The flashlight has mode memory. It remembers the mode you were using when the light was last turned off. It stays in that mode when you turn it on again. The H04 RC flashlight has a strobe function. It produces a rapid, repetitive flashing of light. The SOS signal is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.

The H04 RC flashlight utilizes 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery as its power source. A battery indicator lets users see the battery status. It helps them decide when to recharge or replace the battery. A flashlight's USB charger can be very useful. This is especially true in emergencies. In such situations, access to power outlets may be limited. This flashlight has built-in low voltage protection (LVP). It prevents damage from over-discharge, so it doesn't need protected cells.

The H04 RC has thermal protection feature. These mechanisms track and regulate the flashlight's temperature as it operates. The "8" in the IPx8 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress. This flashlight has a magnetic base. It lets it easily stick to metal surfaces.

The clip provides flexibility in how you carry your flashlight. When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it gives a more secure hold. It also gives a more stable hold. Instead of searching for matching O-rings, having spare O-rings allows quick fixes.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the H04 RC flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
