The L60 is generally comfortable to hold for a long time. It is also easy to carry in pockets or bags. 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 L60 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 L60 flashlight comes in a stylish black color.

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer. Warm, white light is generally more comfortable. It's also less harsh on the eyes than cool, white light. The SMO's main job is to focus and project light from the source. It does this into a defined beam pattern. 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.

With 1200 lm, the L60 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The L60 flashlight has 25600 cd. It can light objects at greater distances. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) measures a flashlight's beam intensity. It compares this to its total luminous flux or output.

A flashlight's modes are different output settings or brightness levels. They can be chosen to meet different needs and preferences. The flashlight has mode memory. It remembers the mode you were using when the light was last turned off. It stays in that mode when you turn it on again. The L60's SOS mode produces a specific sequence of long and short flashes. It signals distress or emergency.

The L60 flashlight's power source is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. It provides reliable, long-lasting energy for top performance. The battery indicator helps users check the battery status. It also estimates how much runtime they have left before recharging the battery. The built-in charger allows for convenient and versatile charging. You can use various USB power sources to recharge the battery. The flashlight detects when the battery's voltage has dropped to a certain level. Then, it reduces or cuts off the power.

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 IP68 rating shows the level of protection. It's against solid objects, like dust and foreign particles. The "8" in the IP68 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress.

Accessories, package contents

Package contents18650 battery
2 x spare o-rings

By including a battery with the flashlight, you avoid the extra expense. You would have to buy a battery separately. Securing the flashlight with a lanyard frees up your hands for other tasks. It keeps the flashlight within reach. When using spare O-rings, follow the maker's instructions. Use their guidelines for proper installation.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the L60 flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
