Osram has a reputation for producing LEDs that deliver consistent quality and durability. Their products often undergo rigorous testing and adhere to industry standards to ensure high performance and longevity. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The Small Steel Cannon E6 features a smooth reflector (SMO). If long-range illumination and throw distance are the primary requirements, a flashlight with a smooth reflector may be more suitable.
The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface. The Small Steel Cannon E6 has electronic switch. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches since they require a small amount of power for operation.
If you mainly need a flashlight for basic tasks like finding keys, navigating in dimly lit areas, or occasional use around the house, 350 lm can be adequate. The Small Steel Cannon E6 flashlight with 42000 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
The throw distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The stated throw distance typically indicates the point at which the brightness falls below a specified threshold, such as 0.25 lux. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The Small Steel Cannon E6 has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. The strobe function on the Small Steel Cannon E6 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect. The Small Steel Cannon E6 has an SOS signal mode. The SOS code consists of three short signals, followed by three long signals, and then three short signals again.
|Battery||1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery|
|Impact resistance||1.5 m|
The power source of the Small Steel Cannon E6 flashlight is 1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator on a flashlight is beneficial as it allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. It helps prevent unexpected power failures during critical situations and ensures that the flashlight is ready for use when needed.
The Small Steel Cannon E6 doesn't have charger port. A charger port is a designated connection point or interface where you can plug in a charger to recharge the flashlight's battery. When the Small Steel Cannon E6 flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output to prevent further discharge. This helps to preserve the battery's capacity and prevent it from reaching a critically low voltage level.
Flashlights without thermal protection may be more susceptible to overheating under extreme conditions, such as prolonged high-output use or exposure to high ambient temperatures. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the Small Steel Cannon E6 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects.
The Small Steel Cannon E6 flashlight with IP68 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer. It is important to consider the impact resistance rating when selecting a flashlight, especially if you anticipate using it in situations where accidental drops or impacts are likely to occur.
|Package contents||14500 battery|
2 x spare o-rings
The included battery is selected to meet the specific power requirements of the Small Steel Cannon E6 flashlight, ensuring reliable and efficient operation. When the flashlight is clipped to a suitable location, it can be angled or positioned to provide hands-free illumination. Regularly replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps maintain the overall durability and performance of the flashlight.
The performance of the Wuben Small Steel Cannon E6 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.
