Without question the World's Longest Throwing LED Flashlight
Now upgraded to 1 million cd typical!!! That makes the DEFT-X the industry's first production LED light to meet this amazing milestone.
The new DEFT-X is performing at an astonishing 1,000Kcd!!! This represents a new world record for LED based flashlights.
DEFT-X has a whopping 300% more intense beam than the closest
competitor*(O-lightSR95SUT). That means you would have to buy
four of the best the rest of the world has to offer just to equal one
DEFT-X. And the DEFT-X does this while weighing a fraction as much as
that light and is also much smaller in every dimension. We
could continue to talk about “competitors” but truth be told the
DEFT-X has no competitors.
put it mildly the DEFT-X is a technological tour de force. Careful
selection and matching of key components such as the driver, LED,
optics, and thermal materials allow us to have searing performance
while still retaining practicality and reliability.
DEFT-X uses the latest Cree XPG2 LEDs. These are bonded direct to
copper for industry leading heat extraction. This was absolutely key to
achieving the thermal performance necessary to make this product a
who know us know we look for improvements anywhere they can be found.
Whatever it takes to push the state of the art forward. At great
cost we have undertaken to license technology from a company called
Wavien. This technology is called RLT™. RLT™
Recycling Light Technology. It allows for the use of light that would
otherwise be wasted in an optical system such as the DEFT-X's. The
light that would hit the sidewalls of the flashlight and die is
instead reflected back at the LED until it exits the aperture and
passes through the lens where it is then collimated into the beam.
The net effect is a more intense beam than would otherwise be
this technology is not enough as we have come to find out by examining
another product that has this technology in it. In this particular
example the RLT was so poorly implemented that performance was
actually better with it removed. So it is our proper implementation
of the technology that has also been a key factor in this remarkable
Uses for a Light of this Power and Beam Type
DEFT-X features a spot only type beam. The lack of spill light has benefits and
shortcomings. The highly confined beam of the DEFT-X is not the type you would use
to light the path in front of you with. Any old flashlight can handle
the low level flood light needed for a pathway. But not just any
flashlight can do what the DEFT-X can. It can tell you not simply what
is at your feet but where to go and what's coming.
customers of these type lights use them to give advanced warning of
predatory animals. The more advanced warning you can get the better.
In some cases it has been found to act as a deterrent to aggressive
DEFT has also been used in law enforcement activities. Border control
agents use them to be able to have a highly portable spotlight that
allows them to scan large areas of desert landscape that would
otherwise require an extremely large and unwieldy light.
have used the DEFT for discrete searching around buildings or near
busy roads. The highly confined beam allows one to put the light
exactly where it is needed avoiding unnecessary disturbance of the
surroundings such as people sleeping in their homes or blinding
oncoming traffic which can result in a dangerous situation unfolding.
law enforcement officers this light also represents a potential life
saver as the extremely intense beam has a “shock and awe” effect
on people that could buy the officer valuable seconds as the person
tries to regain composure. If they even can. The light is so blinding
that the user cannot even be seen by the individual being targeted.
The strobe option which is neatly tucked to the side is both
non-obtrusive to normal operation but also easily accessible whenever
needed and provides a further method to disorient individuals where such effect may be necessary.
who are into boating will also find a light of this type and power to
be an immensely powerful tool. When out on the water two elements
come into play quite often. The need to retain night vision and also
needing to identify markers which can be at great distances. A normal
light that uses a reflector cannot control the light as well and is less intense but also has spill light that falls in the near
field and can ruin night adapted vision.
- For hunters as well this characteristic of preserving night adapted vision due to the lack of spill light is essential. The tremendous throw of the DEFT-X beam also allows the hunter to be far more certain that the area behind the intended target is clear. There is no such thing as too much light down shot when it comes to this vital safety aspect of hunting.
