Why do We Need a LED Flashlight?
Who among us does not know the problems on a dark stage, project studio or even in the rehearsal room? Always there where we see nothing because of the modest illumination, has now changed the wiring or any devices are rearranged. These are just Murphy’s Law.My desk at home is as right outside the window, because it was the only free space. Now if I want to install a new audio card in the computer, I crawling under the desk and sit, because the desk the sunlight of the window excellent shielding, directly in the dark. Also our rehearsal room is a special case. Because it is used by several bands, of course, no one feels responsible for the replacement of defective tubes. Therefore, work in the area with almost 40 m 2 just 2 lamps-a fluorescent tube and a pole lamp for our drummer.
For this kind emergencies my survival package next Guitar spare strings also includes a Mini Maglite
In the test of LED LENSER M5 I therefore really looking forward, as the torch had to prove their quality in direct comparison with the above halogen flashlight.
Description of LED Lenser M5
The company Zweibrüder Optoelectronics GmbH offers with the Led Lenser M5 to a flashlight, which is still a bit shorter than my flashlight, because they needed instead of two only one Mignon cell (AA battery). Delivered the high-power LED flashlight with battery, a holster, a bracelet, a so-called. Smartcard and a Quick Start Guide. This brief instruction I needed only to first-time insertion of the battery, since the three lighting modes flashlight on the smart card are explained and illustrated. The musicians also understand without school! The torch has a rugged metal housing, provides a 88 lm Lichtrom and commercially available AA cell has a life span of about 6 ½ hours.
The LED Lenser flashlight M5 contains a microcontroller control, which can switch three different modes with a combined button / switch. When the switch is pressed lightly, he works as a button; with stronger pressure he snaps and operates as a switch.
The three modes are:
- 100% mode, when the flashlight is turned on directly.
- 15% mode, press switch again slightly and turn it.
- Strobe mode, press button twice and then turn slightly.
All this can be controlled by a single switch and explained on the check cards large smartcard.
Cool is also the Speed Focus. Instead of turning the front of the lens as with other flashlights, I, the front piece just push out directly and so adjust my desired focusing. Back Pushed I get a defocused wide area floodlighting and slid out a spot that will light up to 110 m wide.
Practical Test Of The Flashlight
To give you M5 make of the luminosity of the LED LENSER an image I have our darkened rehearsal room, both with the M5 (in 100% mode) as well as with my Mini Halogen Flashlight my pedalboard from 1 meter, my guitar amp from about 3 meters and our (somewhat dusty) illuminated drums of about 4 meters and then shot one photo without a flash. The brightness of the pictures with LED Lenser M5 illumination is amazing. The photos are part obscured course is, on the lack of flash. You can, however, recognize directly that the pictures with the mini halogen flashlight are much fuzzier than the LED LENSER M5 because the M5 flashlight space ausleuchtete significantly brighter.
The 100% mode is ideal for illuminating dark corners, for example, when installing a new effect unit into the side rack at subsequent rear-side cabling. Even the nightly loaded or unloaded the equipment in and out of a vehicle is simplified thanks to the “CREE” flashlights the LED LENSER M5.
Since the 100% mode in some cases is too bright and therefore distracting reflections can occur, the 15% mode is useful not only as a power saving measure, but can be used eg for glare-free reading of device settings. A series of pictures is me this unfortunately did not succeed because it was my camera too dark. However, it was my problem thanks to 15% mode possible the settings of my Hughes and Kettner Tubeman MK2 (see picture top left) to read, although this does not just support the reading of the potentiometer settings for its high gloss brushed aluminum front panel. Also for my “favorite activity”, namely the rebuilding of the computer under the desk, the 15% mode was just right. He shone in everything, but not blinded.
The strobe mode is promoted among other things security in the dark for, I personally find impractical. Should I attack actually night someone, it would give me due to my nervousness certainly not succeed the LENSER M5 LED switch to the strobe mode.
The LED LENSER M5 is a great device. I never thought that it is possible to produce such a brightness of only a single AA cell. For almost 50 €, there is a luminous waterproof LED flashlight, even for the manufacturer Forum was established.
