HASSLE-FREE LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY

NEXTORCH® warrants our flashlight products to be free from manufacturing defects. We will repair or replace any defect products at our discretion, if it is determined by us to be defective. Normal use including lamp burning out, batteries draining and switches wearing out is not covered, nor is damage resulting from abnormal use, abuse, neglect, battery damage, use of other than NEXTORCH® band batteries or accessories, unauthorized modifications or repairs from their original state. Chargers and rechargeable batteries are covered within one year from the date of purchase. Parts and accessories for flashlight products are not covered by this warranty.

WARRANTY DISCLAIMER

The above warranty is exclusive, and to the extent permitted by application laws, shall be in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular use or purpose. NEXTORCH® disclaims any and all liability for product malfunctions. Physical injuries, or property damage that result in a whole, or in part, from the criminal, negligent, or improper use of the product, or from modifications or alterations thereto. In no event shall NEXTORCH® liable for any incidental, special, or consequential damages relating to the purchase, use, or performance of any NEXTORCH® product.

WARNINGS

1. While turned on, do not place the flashlight face down as this may damage the lamp and is a potential fire hazard
2. Do not shine light directly into eyes as this could cause a permanent injury
3. Do not disassemble the lamp, which could damage the reflector or bulb
4. Tactical flashlights are intended for short term use and should not be used for more than 15 minutes at a time

How to maintain NEXTORCH flashlight

To keep your flashlight in perfect condition, please follow the instructions below:
1. Clean your flashlight with a soft clean cloth to prevent damage
2. To clean your flashlight after it has been submersed in sea water, first screw it on tightly so no water can get in, then wash in clean water and dry with hot air
3. If the tail cap does not rotate smoothly, put silicone grease on the "O" ring, which is available at most outdoor and hardware stores or retail shops that sell Nextorch flashlights
4.Store the batteries in a cool, dry place if flashlight will not be used for long periods of time

Why does my high bright LED sometimes flicker?

This is an indication from the flashlight that the batteries need replacing.


Why can't I restart my HID directly after switching it OFF?
A delay is needed to extend the lifetime of the bulb. Re-start after 5 seconds.
Why does my HID flash when opened?
This is a discharge of ions in the bulb and is nothing to worry about.
Why are there different tail-caps? Screw tail-cap and a click tail-cap?

NEXTORCH produces different tail-caps for different application. The screw tail-cap was developed for use police and military. The ON/OFF rate can be controlled by the users thumb,thus being very effective for temporarily blinding a person.

The click tail-cap is for more common day to day applications where the convenient ON/OFF of the flashlight can be controlled by a simple click.
Can the bulb break easily,and can it be replaced?

All NEXTORCH flashlights use top quality bulb assemblies, which have gone through an inspection and quality process. All filament bulbs have a limited life span and need to be replaces in time. Every bulb is factory calibrated in the reflector unit to offer the best per-set beam performance. For this reason the bulb and the reflector need to be replaced as one unit.

 


How bright is the flashlight beam and how far can I see with it?
Here are realistic distances based on clear visibility in a totally dark environment.
(a) Regular LED(SU5)                                                                  3-6 meters
(b) High-bright LED (magic Max /Z3/P1/P3/T1/T3/Magic Max II)        30-60 meters
(c) 3.6v xenon bulb (RT3/GT6A-R)                                               50-70 meters
(d) 6v Xenon bulb (T6/T6A/GT6A-S.Z6)                                       60-80 meters
(e) 7.2v Xenon bulb (RT7)                                                          75-120 meters
(f)  9v Xenon bulb (T9/Z9)                                                         75-120 meters
(g) 10w HID                                                                             300-500 meters
Luminous intensity
A measure of a light source power in a particular direction. The standard unit of luminous intensity is the Candela (cd).
Luminous flux
Energy per unit time of emitted visible wavelengths of light from the source. The standard unit of luminous flux is the lumen.
Illuminance
The density of luminous flux on a surface. The standard units of illuminance are the footcandle and the lux.
Direct Distance
Distance that the observer, standing in the dark away from the source, can see the light emitted by the source.
Maximum Effective Distance
The maximum distance that the observer, standing in the dark at the source, can see an object illuminated by the source.
Runtime
Flashlight manufacturers claim their flashlights last for tens, even hundreds, of hours. While this may be technically true, it may also be true that during a majority of this time, the flashlight is producing a dim light which may not meet the high-brightness demands of the user. NexTORCH defines the Runtime as the total time that the flashlight maintains more than 50% of its highest steady luminance.
Method of measuring distance
We use the following formula to calculate distance:
E= I/d2
E is illuminance in lux
I is luminous intensity in cd
d is distance in meters

As a standard practice, the illuminance E of the light is measured at 2 meters using a light meter. By manipulating the above formula, we can determine the luminous intensity I (I=E×22). We can also calculate the Direct Distance d where the light produces an illuminance of 0.25lux (d= (I/0.25)1/2). Dividing the Direct Distance by 2, we get the Maximum Effective Distance.

Distance
Distance varies with the location of the observer.
For reference, we have defined two distances based on the observing location: casting location and source location.
