Our opinion on the flashlight Walther Pro PL50

Walther Pro PL50 flashlight overview

In general, the flashlight seems good — It was the most important thing!))) There was a feeling. «product quality factor»Despite the fact that it is not a small size Why do we think so? And because…

  1. Glow modes — there are three of them — they switch easily, without any delay. It’s simple — pressed — switched.
  2. Battery compartment It is screwed along with the thread, it can be easily sealed, it can be screwed along.
  3. Battery It is fixed in the case of the spring.
  4. Lamp very comfortable to hold, in any possible way, especially — Rogers / Shurfire grip with a pistol — not checked, but I think how to try, and be sure to tell). It wasn’t even inconvenient to hold the Camelback Magnum. — it is quite convenient to keep a flashlight in them.
  5. IPX4 protection standard implies splashproof — and this is good. Of course, it’s not true that you’ve taken a flashlight. But in the rain the lantern will feel very confident.
  6. Availability strobe light — This is also a plus, although the chip is purely tactical. It is not a good solution. Although it’s probably a double pressing.
  7. End button — it’s comfortable. Especially for a lantern of such dimensions. It turns out that it is inconvenient, it can be attributed to the minuses. But, as I said above, the modes are continuously and regularly.
  8. At all body material and impact resistant lens — This product is a great advantage.

And now — promised two tests — at work time, and range and lighting efficiency.

Working hours

It’s simple — With a fully charged AA Ni-MH 1.2V 1700mAh Duracell battery, we left the flashlight turned on in three modes: 100% / 120 lumens, 40% / 50 lumens and 10% / 10 lumens. Notice the time and waited until the moment when the light is completely extinguished. As a result, the resulting time: 3 hours for 100% 10 hours for 40% and 24.5 hours for 10%.

For complete time (approximately 20% of the total time), the light begins to fade, imperceptibly, slightly. This is not good, while the lighting control system (BAS) is declared in the design. But otherwise, the flashlight showed no technical results.

The viewing distance without focusing is even small at 100%. But the spot light is more than acceptable.

But when focusing, the range is excellent (in the photo — 40% mode with focus)

But the result is in 100% mode with focus. At around 75m, one can distinguish large objects and a small-sized human figure. The red arrow shows the reflecting light — to him 110-120m

 

As a result, we received about the following figures:

findings

There is a lot of cheaper and very expensive. It can be used at the same time. And with all this — Specifications you need specifically.

As I have repeatedly said in my articles — it is a long time where you will use it. (Which is often wrong), or vice versa, or «Only cheaper options will do!» Here is an example, very exaggerated — It’s better to buy 10 lanterns for $ 30 a year or one for $ 30, but which will last 10 years? Or what you choose for — flashlight for $ 30-40, or for $ 100-200, while shining it once =)
