The Wuben L1 is a dual light sources flashlight that comes in two versions, each featuring an auxiliary light. One version is equipped with an OSRAM P9 LED, which boasts a Color Rendering Index (CRI) greater than 70. The other version utilizes a NICHIA 519A LED, offering a CRI greater than 90. The NICHIA 519A LED produces light that closely resembles sunlight (considered the standard light source), enabling a more accurate representation of colors for people or objects. For example, when engaging in outdoor activities like mountain climbing, if you desire to capture more authentic photographs, you can employ the auxiliary light to assist your photography and maximize the faithful depiction of the scene's true colors.

What is CRI and why is it important?

CRI stands for Color Rendering Index. It is a measure of how accurately a light source renders the colors of objects. The CRI is measured on a scale of 0 to 100, with 100 being the highest possible score. A CRI of 80 or higher is considered to be good, while a CRI of 90 or higher is considered to be excellent.

The CRI is calculated by measuring how well a light source renders eight reference colors, including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, cyan, magenta, and white. The higher the CRI, the more accurately the light source will render these colors.

The CRI is an important factor to consider when choosing a light source for any application where the accurate rendering of colors is important. For example, if you are choosing a light source for a home or office where you will be doing color-sensitive work, such as art or photography, you will want to choose a light source with a high CRI. However, it is important to note that CRI is not the only consideration when choosing a light source. Other factors, such as the light source's brightness, emission spectrum, and light quality, should also be considered.

Here are some of the benefits of using a light source with a high CRI:
  • More accurate color rendering
  • Better color perception
  • Improved mood

In conclusion, the Wuben L1 is a versatile and practical flashlight that is ideal for a variety of uses. Whether you need a flashlight for everyday carry, outdoor activities, or emergencies, the Wuben L1 is a great option.

    Hi Jimmy,

    Thanks for reaching out and for choosing the Wuben L1! Currently, the L1 doesn’t support a specific lock/unlock feature. The buttons might be sensitive due to their design.

    If you have any more questions or need further assistance, feel free to ask.
