Intensity and run time are competing factors in the design of a handheld lighting device. Extreme intensity requires energy. The greater the intensity, the more significant the energy drain. The Turbo resolves this issue - it puts out 920 Lumens of bright white light for one hour, using the included CR123A primary cells.
The Turbo is machined from 6061 T6 aluminum. It is Type III hardcoat anodized with a matte black finish. The foamed vinyl grip provides thermal insulation and a firm hold. The Snap-Loc Clip is replaceable. It may be positioned lens up or lens down. The rotary switch selector allows the activation button to be set for Intermittent - Locked - Constant.
All contacts and springs of the Turbo are gold plated for increased conductivity. The electronic circuitry drives a Cree XP-L LED. The aluminum reflector of the Turbo is finished to produce a penetrating beam with no dark circles. Each Turbo includes a zippered ballistic that may also be used to store spare batteries or accessories.
