The flashlight weighs 76.4 g. It is lightweight and easy to handle for most people. A balanced flashlight has even weight. It can be more comfortable to hold for longer and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of the E1 has a reputation for being durable and strong. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion. The HAIII coating resists corrosion well. It shields the aluminum from moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. The E1 flashlight is available in black.

Lighting professionals trust Cree LEDs. Cree LEDs have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The color temperature choice depends on the light's use and personal taste. The smooth reflector creates a well-defined hotspot at the center. This hotspot provides a concentrated beam for long-range use. The coating is thin and applied to the lens surface. It cuts reflections and boosts light transmission.

Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments. The E1 flashlight has a rear switch. Its operation is usually simple and easy to understand.

Throw170 m

500 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks. The E1 flashlight has 7200 cd. It provides a much brighter and more intense beam. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 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.

The E1 flashlight utilizes 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The E1 cannot charge batteries. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. This flashlight has built-in low voltage protection (LVP). It prevents damage from over-discharge, so it doesn't need protected cells. This light does not have temperature control feature. The "8" in the IPx8 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress.

Accessories, package contents

Package contents2 x spare o-rings
clip
lanyard

The clip provides flexibility in how you carry your flashlight. When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it gives a more secure hold. It also gives a more stable hold. Instead of searching for matching O-rings, having spare O-rings allows quick fixes.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the E1 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
