Princeton Tec Genesis LED Flashlight Grey
This slim metal light is small enough to carry anywhere, yet it packs a 650 lumen LED, making it bright enough to use as a primary source. Tap the recessed button to access high, low and SOS modes; the switch surround lights up with a built-in power indicator. Flat tail cap allows the light to stand up for area lighting; it is also drilled for lanyard attachment. Genesis is powered by 2 CR123 lithium batteries, which cope better with cold temperatures than alkaline cells. Genesis is designed primarily for underwater use, and as such we recommend against extended use topside, particularly in high ambient temperatures.
Regulated LED / Constant Brightness
Princeton Tec lights that feature regulated LEDs have a sophisticated regulating circuit that maintains initial brightness as long as the batteries have sufficient voltage. Traditional lights are very bright initially, but immediately begin to dim and continue to dim until the batteries are drained. Constant Brightness is a term used to describe products that have regulated LEDs.
Princeton Tec has developed proprietary ultralight heatsinks to protect LED products from overheating. Even though LEDs operate at much lower temperatures than traditional incandescent bulbs, they still generate heat. If this heat is not dissipated, the LED will suffer irreversible damage. By using heatsinks, Princeton Tec lights can burn at extreme brightness levels for long periods of time. The heatsink may be incorporated internally or externally depending on the product and its application.
Focused Narrow Beams
This pattern creates a long, powerful beam of light excellent for illuminating distant areas. The resulting long-throw spotlight is especially well-suited for night hiking and search and rescue.
The highest quality LED available from Lumileds, Princeton Tec’s Maxbright LED is extremely bright and efficient. This single LED emits a smooth, powerful, white light useful for a wide range of tasks. Princeton Tec uses collimators or reflectors with the Maxbright LED depending upon the application.
Waterproof - Level 3
The highest of Princeton Tec’s ratings, Level 3 is assigned to lights that offer a degree of water protection equivalent to IPX8 in the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards. Lights rated at Level 3 provide waterproof integrity for continual submersion in water at depths down to 100 meters.
