Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The TO40R 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 TO40R 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.
The 1200 lm output of TO40R provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. The TO40R flashlight with 12100 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 TO40R 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 TO40R 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 TO40R 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 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The power source of the TO40R flashlight is 1 x 18650 Li-Ion 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 TO40R flashlight can be charged directly from a USB power source, such as a wall adapter, computer, power bank, or car charger. This allows for convenient and versatile charging options, as you can utilize various USB power sources to recharge the flashlight's internal battery. When the TO40R 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.
The TO40R has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the TO40R flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The TO40R flashlight with IP68 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer.
