Intelligent Over-heat Protection
The light will accumulate a lot of heat when it is working at Turbo or High output levels. When it is detected at 65℃ or above, the light will automatically and gradually lower the output to prevent overheating. The brightness will automatically return to the normal level if the light is detected below 65℃.
Battery Level Indicator
There are four LED indicator lights at the tail of the flashlight. Click the round tail switch the indicator lights will be on for three seconds. The more indicators are lit up, the more battery power will remain. Like this, four indicators illume indicating at least 80% power remaining, one illumes indicating more than 20% remaining, and one flashes indicating 20% at most.
When the battery voltage is extremely low, the light will turn off automatically to protect the Li-ion battery from being damaged.
When the voltage level drops below the preset level, the flashlight is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until to the lowest output to remind you to recharge the flashlight. To ensure normal use, the flashlight will not turn off automatically until Over-discharge Protection stops the battery from working.
