    The body and the materials

    The Armytek Prime C2 pro magnet ucb is a torch with a linear design that can be used as a normal edc torch for everyday use. It is equipped with a Cree XHP50.2 LED with Warm tint and with a honeycomb TIR lens and produces a flood beam whose hotspot exit angle is 70° while the Spill exit angle is 120°. The maximum power when using the highest output level (Turbo 3) is 2400 lumens with a maximum luminous intensity of 3800 candela corresponding to a maximum range of approximately 123 meters.

    The head features a particularly thick stainless steel bezel that protects the lens from any impacts.

    Bundled with the light also comes a stainless steel belt clip that allows you to install the light to any type of garment such as belts, backpacks, bags, and any MOLLE attachment.

    On the head there are expressed and deep dissipation fins that allow the heat produced by the LED to be dispersed when the torch is turned on at the highest output level.

    The lettering is perfect and is present near the head or on the head. It has no smudges and is well centered. The central part of the body is smooth but nevertheless the channeling and detail of this light always guarantees an excellent grip even when you have wet hands or if you are wearing particularly thick gloves.

    The tail cap is magnetic, therefore the torch can be attached to any metal surface both vertically and horizontally: an indispensable function when, for example, you need to work hands-free.

    The tailcap also acts as a charging station using the special custom cable supplied. The charging cable is magnetic therefore it will be enough to bring it close to the tail of the flashlight and it will automatically position itself in the right position. The supplied charging cable has green and red LEDs inside which inform the user of the battery charge status. During the charging phase, the LED will light up red, at the end of the charge it will light up green, while if there are problems during the recharging phase, the LED on the cable will flash red. The charging cable also acts as a charging base where to place the torch.

    There is a single interface management switch and it is located near the head. It is rubberised protruding yellow in color and is easily identifiable even when wearing gloves it is very responsive to pressure. Inside there is a status LED which allows the user to instantly understand the residual capacity of the cell.

    The Armytek Prime C2 Pro has a flat tail therefore it is possible to use the tailstanding torch resting on flat surfaces. The body is made entirely of aluminum alloy with a particular matte finish which makes this flashlight non-slippery and pleasant to the touch. The particular anodization makes this light resistant to scratches, falls and bad weather. Armytek guarantees this flashlight as water resistant according to the ip68 standard and submersible up to 10m depth for two hours. In addition, the impact resistance is given up to an incredible height of 10m.

    It is possible to mechanically lock the torch by slightly unscrewing the tailcap

    The available output levels are many and well spaced: in fact we have 3 Turbo levels, 3 Main levels, 3 Firefly levels and 3 Strobe levels divided as follows:

    • Turbo 3: 2400lm/2h 48min (610lm after 30 sec)
    • Turbo 2: 1710 lm/2 h 48 min (610 lm after 1 min 30 sec)
    • Turbo1: 815 lm/2 h 44 min (610 lm after 22 min)
    • Main 3: 350lm/5h 20min
    • Main2: 150lm/12 h 30 min
    • Main1: 40lm/40 h 30 min
    • Firefly 3: 5 lm/12d
    • Firefly2: 1lm/40d
    • Firefly1: 0.15lm/200d
    • Strobe 3: 2400lm/10Hz/5h 45min (610lm after 2min)
    • Strobe2: 2400lm/1Hz/12h (610lm after 10 min)
    • Strobe 1: 150lm/1Hz/55h

    The Armytek Prime C2 Pro Magnet USB is also a safe flashlight that has different safety mechanisms:

    • Safe high brightness modes. Turbo modes give maximum brightness until the temperature of the flashlight and discharge current of the battery don't exceed critical values.
    • Digital Light Stabilization & Safe Soft-Start System allows to increase runtime, get longer lifetime of rechargeable battery and protect it from over discharge or overheating.
    • Active temperature control. When the temperature of the flashlight becomes close to +58 °С, brightness decreases to safe value, allowing the flashlight to avoid overheating for a long period of time. In conditions of good air-cooling the flashlight delivers light without stepping down.
    • Warning indication shows the battery level and the temperature inside the flashlight. 
    • Low battery level. When the battery level is approximately <25%, the color LED will show the warning level by flashing orange once in 2 seconds. With further voltage reduction brightness will start to decrease in steps for safety of the battery and user. If the brightness of the mode (except Firefly modes and Main1) is approximately <25% from nominal value, the main LED will flash 2 times. Critical battery level approximately <10% is indicated by flashing red once a second.

    The user interface is full of functions but very simple to use: there are two modes of use that are useful for different scenarios and which differ in the output levels present: There is the "General Type" mode whose available output levels are: Firefly1, Firefly2, Main modes, Turbo mode (last used in Advanced, Turbo2 by default) and the “Advanced Type” which features all the mode sections: Firefly modes, Main modes, Turbo modes, Strobe modes.

    • In “General Type” in ON state: 1 click to turn off the flashlight. Press and hold switch to start cycling through Main modes from any mode. In Firefly1 cycling through Main modes starts after cycling through Firefly modes. Release to select. 2 clicks on the switch to turn on Turbo mode from any mode. The second double click brings back the last used mode.
    • In General Type in OFF state: 1 click to turn on the last used mode. Press and hold: To start cycling through Firefly modes. Release to select. Keeping the button pressed will start cycling through Main modes.
    • In Advanced Type on OFF state: 1 click to turn off the flashlight. Press and hold: To start cycling through the modes of the relevant Section.
    • In Advanced Type in ON state: 2 clicks to turn on the Main modes section. Another double click will switch between chosen modes in Firefly Modes section and Main Modes section. 3 clicks to turn on Turbo modes section. 4 clicks to turn on Strobes modesection.
