Skilhunt S2 Pro HI (S2PROHI) specifications
|Name||S2 Pro HI|
The S2 Pro HI flashlight enhances safety by illuminating potential hazards and improving visibility in low-light conditions.
|Body diameter||25.4 mm|
|Head diameter||36 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 125 g flashlight would be considered slightly heavier than average for a handheld flashlight, but it is still within a reasonable weight range. This weight range is often found in smaller and more compact flashlights designed for everyday use or portability. The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for.
Aluminium body of S2 Pro HI is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments. 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. The S2 Pro HI flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L HI LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
|Switch||electronic side, mechanical rear|
The emitter of S2 Pro HI manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The S2 Pro HI has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.
This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The multiple switch configuration on the S2 Pro HI flashlight can be a useful option, providing additional versatility and convenience in operating the flashlight. The S2 Pro HI utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
The S2 Pro HI has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches are known for their durability and reliability. They are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. The rear switch of S2 Pro HI is designed to be rugged and durable, capable of withstanding harsh conditions and repeated use.
With 1100 lm, the S2 Pro HI flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. The S2 Pro HI flashlight with 34410 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The S2 Pro HI 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 S2 Pro HI is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The Skilhunt S2 Pro HI flashlight is powered by 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
spare rubber cover
When the flashlight is clipped to a suitable location, it can be angled or positioned to provide hands-free illumination. The lanyard of S2 Pro HI helps protect the flashlight from accidental damage by preventing it from falling or hitting the ground. Having spare O-rings allows you to replace them as needed, ensuring that the flashlight maintains its water-tight seal and remains protected from moisture or water ingress.
The performance of the Skilhunt S2 Pro HI 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.
