Wuben I330 (I330) specifications
The I330 flashlight enhances safety by illuminating potential hazards and improving visibility in low-light conditions.
|Body diameter||17 mm|
|Head diameter||17.5 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 45 g flashlight would generally be considered lightweight and easy to handle for most people. 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 I330 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 I330 flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L V5 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
The emitter of I330 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 I330 has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.
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 I330 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 I330 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.
450 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 2500 cd, the I330 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. 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 I330 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate. It has the SOS beacon function for an emergency situation. The SOS flashes Morse code so you can signal for help when needed. The SOS signal is recognized as an international distress call and is used to indicate an urgent need for assistance.
|Battery||1 x 10440 Li-Ion battery|
The Wuben I330 flashlight is powered by 1 x 10440 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
This light does not have temperature control feature. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
|Package contents||10440 battery|
2 x spare o-rings
It comes with a battery. The battery must be fully charged before you first use your I330. The clip provides flexibility in how you carry your flashlight. When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it provides a more secure and stable hold. 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 Wuben I330 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.
