This flashlight is all about throw. It has a tightly focused beam with a reasonable spill. The output is approximately 700 measured Out the Front lumens on high and 50 OTF lumens on low. The High/Low is controlled by head rotation. The On/Off switch is a forward clicky with momentary function.
This flashlight will illuminate objects at 1200+ feet. The Lux at one meter is approximately 90,000 (many artifacts on a white wall). The Lux with a 1 degree diffuser is 70,000 (some artifacts on a white wall). The Lux with a 5 degree diffuser is 35,000 (no artifacts on a white wall). The tint is 5700K.
This Flashlight is Designed for Maximum Reach in a Small Format. If You are a White Wall Hunter, This is NOT the Head For You. It does not have a beautiful, symmetrical beam on a white wall. It has artifacts and rings. The square artifact in the corona is not centered around the hot spot. The hot spot WILL appear to be at the edge of the small square artifact (on a white wall). In real life usage this artifact is hardly noticeable.
This is an artifact and does not cut down on throw. The LED is centered. We do include diffusers for beam smoothing, please note that these will reduce throw. The light does have massive throw for it’s size, but it does come at the expense of an ugly beam.
The included diffusers are constructed of 0.01" thick polycarbonate. The lens components are installed in the following order. Place the bezel on a flat surface. Then place the lens O-Ring in the bezel. Then the lens. Then the flat black spacer. Then the diffuser with the textured side toward the LED.
The runtime on the included 18650 battery is approximately 1 hour at full output (down to 475 lumens). Then another 45 minutes of bright output (down to 100 lumens) followed by several hours of declining output.
This Flashlight was designed for rugged service from the ground up. It is fully potted to stand up to rough service and recoil.
