Military flashlight are among the most top rising flashlights trends of the past several years but have you ever wondered why are they able to transmit more lumen power that other types of flashlights? The secret key that makes every military flashlight better than all LED flashlights and tactical flashlights is the unique hardware concept.
Most flashlights hardware are made on a very similar principle where for transmitting the lumen capacity an LED diode is being used. LED diodes are known in the flashlight industry as a very outdated technology that keeps all flashlights from evolving into multi-functional tools. LEd diodes because of their circular body structure aren’t able to transmit the entire lumen capacity in one place, instead, it is spreading the light in different directions. For years and years, all of the top flashlight companies have tried to solve this problem but somehow they weren’t able to solve it.
If you are a huge fan of flashlight then you know that Lumitact is one of the top companies in the flashlight industry. Being the most revolutionary flashlight technology company all eyes were pointed at them to solve this problem. Lumitact as the official flashlight manufacturer for the US army has been absent from the market for several years but when they dropped their contract with the US army they came back on the market with a solution to the hardware problem.
Lumitact has solved the hardware problem with just one small adjustment that made huge differences in quality. Instead of using the outdated LED diodes they invented a revolutionary LED chip that is able to transmit the entire lumen capacity of a flashlight. The key factor that makes LED chips different than LED diodes is in their body structure. The body structure of an LED chip is square which means that the light is only limited to one direction which is more than enough to transmit the entire lumen capacity of a flashlight.
After the revelation of the unique LED chip Lumitact has patented this technology and now it is only available in Lumitat’s flashlights. The only flashlight for now that uses this kind of technology is the G700 military grade flashlight. The Lumitact G700 military grade flashlight is considered to be the brightest flashlight on the market with a staggering power of 700 lumens which is more than enough to light up an entire field.
Besides the fact that the LEd chips allow the full transmission of the lumen capacity the other valuable resource that the LED chips provide is battery longevity. As one of the biggest flashlight problems battery capacity is very important in all kind of flashlights. Without a battery capacity of at least 48 hours of constant work, a flashlight isn’t considered to be reliable.
Because LED chips are focusing in one direction, the battery usage is down by 50%. Since the only flashlight that has the LED chip integrated into their hardware, the Lumitact G700 is able to last up to 72 hours of constant working.
