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. The aluminium body of the PT-2 has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. HAIII is a specific anodizing process. It creates a thicker and harder oxide layer than regular anodizing. The PT-2 flashlight comes in a stylish black color.

Cree is a US-based LED manufacturer. It is well-regarded for its high-quality products and innovation in lighting. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources. The PT-2 has a smooth reflector. The right reflector focuses light well. It gives you a better hotspot, and it throws better. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens.

Mechanical switches are usually robust. They resist wear and tear and work in many environments. Rear switches are common on tactical flashlights. Law enforcement, military, and self-defense personnel use them.

Throw90 m
CD/LM factor7.36

275 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks. The PT-2 flashlight has 2025 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 cd/lm factor is the candela-to-lumen ratio. It shows how concentrated a light source's output is.

The Unilite PT-2 flashlight is powered by 2 x AAA batteries. The PT-2 cannot charge batteries. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going. Use a protected battery. This flashlight lacks low voltage protection (LVP). Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements to dissipate heat. These elements include heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity.

The "6" in the IP66 rating shows the level of protection. It's against solid objects, like dust and foreign particles. The IP66 rating indicates that the flashlight has a protection against water jets.

Accessories, package contents

Package contents2 x AAA batteries
clip

The clip is useful to keep the light secured in your pocket.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the PT-2 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
