|Head diameter||28 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 73 g flashlight would be considered extremely lightweight for a handheld flashlight. The length of the SP35 flashlight can affect its portability. A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for SP35 flashlight. The HAIII coating often has a matte or textured finish, which enhances grip and provides a comfortable feel in the hand. This can be particularly useful in situations where a secure grip on the flashlight is essential, such as in wet or slippery conditions. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.
|Emitter||Luminus SST40 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
Luminus has established a positive reputation as a reliable LED manufacturer, and their products are widely used and trusted by lighting professionals and enthusiasts alike. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The SP35 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 SP35 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 2000 lm output of SP35 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. The SP35 flashlight with 27520 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 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 SP35 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 SP35 flashlight with ramping mode has a user interface that enables you to control the brightness level by pressing and holding a button.
The strobe function on the SP35 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 SP35 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 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The power source of the SP35 flashlight is 1 x 21700 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 SP35 flashlight can be charged directly from a USB power source, such as a wall adapter, computer, power bank, or car charger. This allows for convenient and versatile charging options, as you can utilize various USB power sources to recharge the flashlight's internal battery. When the SP35 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.
Flashlights without thermal protection may be more susceptible to overheating under extreme conditions, such as prolonged high-output use or exposure to high ambient temperatures. The SP35 flashlight with IPx8 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer. It is important to consider the impact resistance rating when selecting a flashlight, especially if you anticipate using it in situations where accidental drops or impacts are likely to occur.
|Package contents||18650 adapter|
2 x spare o-rings
USB Type-C cable
The clip is useful to keep the light secured in your pocket. The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. Regularly replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps maintain the overall durability and performance of the flashlight.
The performance of the Sofirn SP35 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.
