Switchelectronic side

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 smooth reflector creates a well-defined hotspot at the center. This hotspot provides a concentrated beam for long-range use. The coating is thin and applied to the lens surface. It cuts reflections and boosts light transmission. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.

With 750 lm, the M150 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The M150 flashlight has 3000 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 SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed.

The M150 flashlight utilizes 1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery as its power source. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. This flashlight can charge the battery with a built-in charger. It works with a USB power source. This flashlight has built-in low voltage protection (LVP). It prevents damage from over-discharge, so it doesn't need protected cells.

The M150 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. The M150 is magnetic so that the flashlight can be attached to some metallic surfaces.

Accessories, package contents

The clip provides flexibility in how you carry your flashlight. The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. 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 M150 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
