Skilhunt H04R (H04R) specifications
Headlamps are versatile lighting tools that provide convenience, hands-free operation, and illumination in a wide range of activities and environments. Whether you're exploring the great outdoors or working on projects in low-light conditions, a headlamp can be a valuable accessory to have.
|Body diameter||21.6 mm|
|Head diameter||23.5 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 46 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 H04R flashlight. Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.
|Emitter||Cree XM-L2 U4 LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The H04R features a smooth reflector (SMO). If long-range illumination and throw distance are the primary requirements, a flashlight with a smooth reflector may be more suitable.
The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The H04R has electronic switch. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches since they require a small amount of power for operation.
The 1200 lm output of H04R provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. With 5300 cd, the H04R 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.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The H04R 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 strobe function on the H04R flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect. The H04R has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The power source of the H04R flashlight is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator on a flashlight is beneficial as it allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. It helps prevent unexpected power failures during critical situations and ensures that the flashlight is ready for use when needed.
The H04R doesn't have charger port. A charger port is a designated connection point or interface where you can plug in a charger to recharge the flashlight's battery. When the H04R flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output to prevent further discharge. This helps to preserve the battery's capacity and prevent it from reaching a critically low voltage level.
The H04R has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The H04R flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer. The H04R flashlight effortlessly clings to metal surfaces, granting you the freedom to go hands-free and explore versatile mounting possibilities.

When the flashlight is clipped to a suitable location, it can be angled or positioned to provide hands-free illumination. The lanyard of H04R 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 Skilhunt H04R 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.
