Photon LED Beam Colors
White LED Beam. With Photon's recent 2X brightness increase, the white is now hands-down the brightest of all beam colors, a full 2X brighter than nearly every other single-LED keychain sized personal flashlight on the market! White is great for all around use as everything is viewed in full color. The narrow-angle bulb produces an incredibly bright --and practical-- flashlight-style beam. Color Spec: 6500 K. / Beam Angle: 20 degrees (narrow angle)
Red LED Beam. Red is favored by pilots, sailors, fishermen, and astronomers for the excellent ability to preserve night vision and also for uses of safety, signaling, and map reading. Red is an internationally recognized attention color. Color Spec: 630 nm. / Beam Angle: 24 degrees (wide angle)
Yellow LED Beam. Yellow is a traditional flashlight beam color, with good projection - up to 20 to 30 feet. Because the red, yellow, & orange Photons use a single CR2032 battery rather than the pair of smaller CR2016 batteries used in the other colors, they will provide a significantly longer battery life at the expense of some brightness. This makes these colors excellent for use in emergency kits or other situations where battery life is a primary concern over absolute brightness. Color Spec: 592 nm. / Beam Angle: 15 degrees (narrow angle)
Orange LED Beam. The orange beam combines some of the aspects of both the red and the yellow. It doesn't disturb night vision as much as the yellow, yet will illuminate a path better than the red. Color Spec: 605 nm. / Beam Angle: 15 degrees (narrow angle)
Green LED Beam. The green light is nearly as bright as the blue, turquoise, and white lights while offering a slightly longer battery life. Because the green LED bulb tends to be a bit more efficient than the other colors, it can run for up to 20 hours with one set of batteries. Color Spec: 525 nm. / Beam Angle: 30 degrees (wide angle)
Blue LED Beam. The blue beam is tremendously bright and makes an excellent all-around flashlight. The wide-angle bulb illuminates everything to the side as well as forward. Color Spec: 470 nm. / Beam Angle: 30 degrees (wide angle)
Turquoise ("Night-Vision Green") LED Beam. Because of it's lighter shade of color, the turquoise beam is arguably slightly brighter than the blue. The wide-angle bulb can light up an entire room. At reduced brightness levels (try swapping a single CR2032 battery for the included pair of CR2016 batteries), the blue-green color of the turquoise is an excellent alternative to red for night vision preservation. Color Spec: 495 nm. / Beam Angle: 30 degrees (wide angle)
Purple LED Beam. The purple light produces a black-light effect, making lighter colors (whites, fluorescents, etc.) appear to glow. Purple bulbs do emit some UV light, which can be harmful if viewed directly. Click here for more detailed information about the specialty uses of purple & UV Photons. Color Spec: 405 nm. / Beam Angle: (wide angle)
Specialty LED Beam Colors:
Infrared (IR) LED Beam. Used by members of the Secret Service, this Photon light creates a powerful infrared beam invisible to the naked eye. Rated at 11mW, this light is significantly more powerful than the average IR illuminator. When used in conjunction with night vision equipment, it will illuminate a large area. This Photon light is ONLY useful when used with night vision equipment or other equipment sensitive to infrared light. While the infrared Photon can be used with the night-vision feature of some digital cameras & camcorders, please click here for more detailed information about our range of infrared lights and compatibility notes before ordering. Color Spec: 890 nm. / Beam Angle: 12 degrees (narrow angle)
Ultraviolet (UV) LED Beam. UV light has a variety of specialty applications. It can be used to: authenticate money, expose imitation art, identify minerals, follow blood, bacteria and protein trails, authenticate collector glass and stamps, and accelerate curing glue. Medical staff, law enforcement personnel, collectors, cashiers and model builders are the main users of UV lights. Color Spec: 375 nm. / Beam Angle: 10 degrees (narrow angle).
Dual White / Red LED Beam. Very bright & one of the most versatile beam colors, white is great for all around use as everything is viewed in full color. The primary beam produces an incredibly bright --and practical-- flashlight-style beam. The smaller red secondary beam is useful for its ability to preserve night vision and also for safety and signaling. White: 6500 K / Red: 630 nm.
Dual Red / Yellow LED Beam. Red is favored by pilots, sailors, fishermen, and astronomers for the excellent ability to preserve night vision and also for uses of safety, signaling, and map reading. Red is an internationally recognized attention color. The yellow secondary beam provides a more traditional flashlight-style beam for times when night vision is not as much of a concern. Red: 630 nm / Yellow: 592 nm.
Dual Blue / Red LED Beam. The blue beam is tremendously bright and makes an excellent all-around flashlight. The multi-LED array of wide-angle LED bulbs provide a broad beam that illuminates everything to the side as well as forward. The red secondary beam is useful for its ability to preserve night vision and also for safety and signaling. Blue: 470 nm / Red: 630 nm.
