Sofirn TF84 (TF84) specifications
The presence of a flashlight can provide a sense of reassurance and confidence in unfamiliar or potentially dangerous environments.
|Body diameter||25 mm|
|Head diameter||35 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The TF84 generally comfortable to hold for extended periods and easy to carry in pockets or bags. The length of the TF84 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. The aluminium bodies can be anodized, providing a protective layer and a wide range of color options for flashlight bodies. Anodizing enhances the corrosion resistance, hardness, and scratch resistance of the aluminum, while also allowing for a variety of attractive finishes.
The HAIII coating can also enhance the visual appearance of the flashlight. It offers a uniform and attractive finish, often available in different colors, giving the flashlight a sleek and professional look. This flashlight features a captivating black color.
|Emitter||Samsung LH351D LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
|Switch||electronic side, dual electronic rear|
The emitter of TF84 manufactured by Samsung, a Korean LED manufacturer. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The TF84 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 on the lens maximizes light transmission, making the flashlight more effective in darker environments.
The TF84 uses multiple switches. Depending on the placement and design of the switches, a multiple switch configuration can allow for one-handed operation. This is particularly helpful in situations where you need to hold or manipulate objects with one hand while using the flashlight with the other hand. The TF84 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 rear switch of TF84 is typically operated with the thumb or finger, making it easily accessible and convenient to use. The positioning of the switch at the rear of the flashlight allows for natural and intuitive operation, particularly in one-handed scenarios.
The 1200 lm output of TF84 provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. The TF84 flashlight with 10583 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. Flashlights with a higher cd/lm ratio typically excel in long-range throw and focused beam applications, while flashlights with a lower cd/lm ratio may provide a wider and more evenly distributed beam for closer-range illumination or general-purpose use.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The TF84 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. Instead of having predefined brightness levels or fixed modes, the ramping mode lets you adjust the light intensity seamlessly within a specific range.
The strobe function on the TF84 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 TF84 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|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The power source of the TF84 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.
USB rechargeable flashlights have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their convenience and sustainability. When the TF84 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 TF84 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 "7" in the IPx7 rating indicates that the TF84 flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged. It is recommended to handle flashlights with care and avoid subjecting them to unnecessary rough treatment to ensure their longevity and reliable operation.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
USB Type-C cable
When using spare O-rings, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for proper installation.
The performance of the Sofirn TF84 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.
