Today, we focus on power!
The QuadRay Tiny Monster by Nitecore is considered the world’s smallest 3,500 lumen LED flashlight. If you’re not sure what 3,500 lumen means let me tell you that “powerful flashlights” output in average around 500 lumens light. So the Nitecore QuadRay turns out to be 6-7 times more powerful then what we averagely call a “powerful flashlight”. On maximum light output settings the Nitecore tiny monster would be brighter than most automobile headlights.
Now that you have an idea what 3,500 lumen would look like, let’s see some of the QuadRay’s technical specs:
Eight brightness levels and modes
Intelligent charging circuit for safe and quick charging
Toughened ultra-clear mineral glass with anti-reflective coating
Made of aerospace-grade aluminum alloy with stainless steel bezel-ring to protect it’s core components from damage
HAIII military grade hard-anodized
Waterproof (up to two meters)
Works on 4 x 18650 lithium ion cells OR 8 x CR123 batteries (Both included)
4 x CREE XM-L LEDs
Run time: Between 45 minutes to 1000 hours (Turbo: 3500 Lumen/45 min; High: 1700 Lumen/2.5 Hours; Medium: 540 Lumen/8.25 Hours; Low: 95 Lumen/48 Hours; Lowest: 3 Lumen/1000 Hours)
Weight (without battery – 15.45oz (438g); with battery – 17.09 oz (484gr)
What’s your take on flashlights? Would you go for high power monsters like the QuadRay or you’d stay in more favorite a longer lasting lantern?
LuminAID was designed with simplicity in mid, to give post-natural disaster victims and remote area outdoor trippers access to light when all other light sources are out.
LuminAID works on a very simple principle – a solar power charging battery powers and LED light and the light gets diffused by an inflatable pack. The LuminAID charges in 5 hours of sun light exposure and offers up to 8 hours of LED light. The pack comes with two power settings – low and high), can keep it’s charge for up to 4 months (when unused) and it’s fully waterproof, making it a perfect companion for rainy or humid situations.
The inflatable pack, allows it’s volume to shrink when not in use, which make the LuminAID pack extremely lightweight and portable (50 LuminAID packages can be stored in the same space used by 8 small conventional flashlights) – we’re speaking about a weight of 3 ounces (85 grams) and a size of 12.5″ L x 8.5″ W (31 cm L x 21 cm W).
