The WK30 flashlight enhances safety by illuminating potential hazards and improving visibility in low-light conditions.


Weight104 g
Length113 mm
Head diameter36.9 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

This 104 g flashlight would be considered slightly heavier than average for a handheld flashlight, but it is still within a reasonable weight range. This weight range is often found in smaller and more compact flashlights designed for everyday use or portability. It's important to consider the length of the flashlight to ensure it fits comfortably in your desired carrying method. Aluminium body of WK30 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 WK30 flashlight is available in black.

The emitter of WK30 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. Samsung is widely recognized as a reputable and reliable LED manufacturer. The company has a strong reputation for producing high-quality LED products across various applications, including lighting solutions.

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 WK30 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 WK30 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.


Flux1200 lm
Intensity2579 cd
Throw102 m
CD/LM factor2.15

With 1200 lm, the WK30 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. With 2579 cd, the WK30 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.

A flashlight with a higher CRI can provide better color accuracy when examining objects or distinguishing between different colors in low-light or nighttime situations. This can be beneficial in certain tasks or activities where color discrimination is important, such as identifying wires or reading color-coded information. With a CRI of 90 the WK30 flashlight can provide true-to-life color representation, making it ideal for applications where accurate color discrimination is crucial.

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The WK30 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 WK30 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.
