Sofirn TK70 (TK70) 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||73.5 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 625 g flashlight is quite heavy for a handheld flashlight. The increased weight can provide advantages such as longer runtime, enhanced durability, and the ability to project a brighter and farther-reaching beam. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue.
Aluminium body of TK70 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. The HAIII coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting the underlying aluminum from exposure to moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. It helps maintain the appearance and functionality of the flashlight, even in harsh environments. The TK70 flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||Cree XHP70.2 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
|Switch||electronic side, mechanical rear|
Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The primary function of the smooth reflector (SMO) is to precisely focus and project the light emitted from the light source into a defined beam pattern. The smooth surface allows for greater reflectivity and light concentration, resulting in a more focused and intense beam with a longer throw distance.
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 TK70 flashlight can be a useful option, providing additional versatility and convenience in operating the flashlight. The TK70 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 TK70 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 placement of the rear switch at the end of the TK70 flashlight facilitates a secure forward grip. This grip allows for better control and handling of the flashlight, especially in situations where precision and stability are important.
With 5500 lm, the TK70 flashlight will provide an exceptionally bright and powerful beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, outdoor spaces, or even act as a temporary spotlight in certain situations. The intense brightness of a 58013 cd flashlight can provide exceptional visibility and enhance safety in low-light or dark environments. It can help with target identification, provide effective signaling capabilities, or serve as a powerful tool for self-defense.
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 TK70 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 strobe function on the TK70 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect.
|Battery||2 x 26650 Li-Ion batteries|
The power source of the TK70 flashlight is 2 x 26650 Li-Ion batteries, 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 TK70 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. When the TK70 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 built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The IPx6 rating indicates that the TK70 flashlight has a protection against water jets.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
spare rubber cover
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 TK70 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.
