Unilite PT-2 (PT2) specifications
The PT-2 flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.
|Body diameter||18 mm|
|Head diameter||25 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The PT-2 is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. A longer flashlight may provide a more substantial grip, making it easier to hold and control, especially if you have larger hands. The aluminium body of PT-2 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.
Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. The PT-2 flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||unspecified Cree LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
The emitter of PT-2 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The PT-2 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.
The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the PT-2 flashlight. The PT-2 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. With a rear switch of PT-2 flashlight, the operation of the flashlight is often straightforward and easy to grasp. A simple press or click of the rear switch turns the flashlight on or off, eliminating the need for complex button combinations or multi-step processes.
275 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks, it may not be sufficient for certain scenarios or individuals with specific requirements. With 2025 cd, the PT-2 flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer distances. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences.
|Battery||2 x AAA batteries|
The Unilite PT-2 flashlight is powered by 2 x AAA batteries. The PT-2 cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. A protected battery is recommended as the light itself does not have low voltage protection (LVP). This light does not have temperature control feature. The "6" in the IP66 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the PT-2 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The IP66 rating indicates that the PT-2 flashlight has a protection against water jets.
|Package contents||2 x AAA batteries|
With a clip, you can securely fasten the flashlight to a reachable location, ensuring it is easily accessible whenever you need it.
The performance of the Unilite PT-2 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.
