With 600750 cd, this Thrunite flashlight will produce an extremely intense and powerful beam of light. It will provide an unparalleled level of brightness and visibility, capable of illuminating objects or areas with exceptional clarity even at very long distances. 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 TN42 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.
