Sofirn SP33 v2 (SP33V2) specifications
Flashlights are compact and lightweight, making them highly portable. They can easily fit into pockets, backpacks, or glove compartments, allowing you to carry them wherever you go.
|Head diameter||37 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 150 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 SP33 v2 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 SP33 v2 flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||Cree XHP50.2 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
The emitter of SP33 v2 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 SP33 v2 has an orange peel (OP) textured reflector. Orange peel reflectors have smoother beams.
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 SP33 v2 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
With 2500 lm, the SP33 v2 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 SP33 v2 flashlight with 11772 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 SP33 v2 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 SP33 v2 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.
|Battery||1 x 26650 Li-Ion battery|
The Sofirn SP33 v2 flashlight is powered by 1 x 26650 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The SP33 v2 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. 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|
The lanyard of SP33 v2 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 Sofirn SP33 v2 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.
