ADVANCED FOCUS SYSTEM
Traditionally light-focusing systems have consisted of either a lens or a reflector. Lenses have the advantage of emitting a homogenous light pattern for distances almost 70% of the light is scattered and lost. Conversely, while reflectors do a better job of capturing a higher percentage of light for long-distances, when they are used for up-close reading scattered light causes "rings" and "holes" in the light pattern leading to eye fatigue. In both these cases, the lumen count (brightness) loses its validity as light is misdirected and wasted. That's why we decided to try something different. If you pull together the strengths of the lens and reflector into one combined system, you achieve clear, homogeneous light spill for up-close reading and a sharply-focused beam for long-distance viewing. This is exactly what we've done with the Advanced Focus System (AFS); a unique and patented lens/reflector optic. AFS means reading the map up-close is easy on the eyes and then focusing to find the path or landmark in the distance, clear and bright.
SMART LIGHT TECHNOLOGY (SLT)
Sometimes you want constant power to your light. Other times you know you'll be out for a while and you want to conserve energy. Either way Smart Light Technology settings allow you to choose how much power you want to use to operate your light. Now add to that individualized programs you set quickly and easily with a simple click on the tail switch. There's one for professionals, an easy everyday mode, and one for defense. Each program has unique functions from simple on/off to, "S.O.S." and even a potentially lifesaving "defense strobe." Simple, fast and custom for you. Smart Light Technology is one more way LED Lenser puts the "brains" in "bright."
Fiddling with the light bezel to focus and de-focus is a hassle. If you loosen it too much the light goes off, not enough and you're starting over. Worst of all the speed of acting or reacting is doubled when you have to use two hands. With our Rapid Focus system, you can go from reading to searching by using the thumb on your holding hand to simply slide the bezel away from you. One hand, one movement, seamless transition from close to far and all points in between.
The most commonly used parts on any piece of equipment will wear out first. With many lights on the market, their design doesn't allow for individual part replacement. This means more materials make their way into landfills as whole light systems are disposed of instead of individual/smaller sections as needed, such as the heavily-used tail switch. With the LED Lenser modular system, we can repair or replace sections of your light as needed, making it easier, faster and better for the environment to perform our industry-leading warranty. This system is also designed using fewer points of electrical contact overall. Fewer contact points means fewer chances for electrical failure. Smart flashlights with an even smarter design.
