The P26 flashlight enhance personal safety and security. It allows you to illuminate dark areas, identify potential hazards, or deter threats by shining light on them.
|Head diameter||40 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The 117 g flashlight is generally comfortable to hold for extended periods and easy to carry in pockets or bags. They are suitable for various applications such as camping, hiking, or emergency situations. A 120-gram flashlight strikes a good balance between functionality, convenience, and weight. The length of the P26 flashlight can affect its portability. A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go.
The aluminium body of P26 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery. The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. The P26 flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||1 x Cree XP-G3 LED, 1 x 365nm UV LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||toughtened AR coated glass|
|Switch||dual electronic side|
Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. With the smooth reflector of the P26, the beam tends to have a well-defined hotspot at the center, which provides a concentrated beam of light for long-range applications.
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 P26 flashlight. The P26 has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.
500 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 4200 cd, the P26 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||3 x AAA battery or 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The P26 flashlight utilizes 3 x AAA battery or 18650 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The P26 has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. The P26 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 flashlight doesn't have built-in temperature control. Flashlights without thermal protection may rely on other design elements for heat dissipation, such as heat sinks, fins, or body materials with good thermal conductivity. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the P26 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects.
The "8" in the IP68 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. UV light is known to cause scorpions to fluoresce or emit a distinctive glow. For outdoor enthusiasts or individuals residing in scorpion-prone areas, a flashlight with UV capabilities can help locate and identify these nocturnal creatures more easily and avoid potential encounters.
|Package contents||18650 battery tube|
2 x spare o-rings
