Acebeam W30 Long Range LEP Flashlight
Acebeam W30 is a very specific flashlight powered by a strong rechargeable lithium-ion battery and featuring extra long range - it is an example of an LEP (Laser Excitation Phosphor) BLOS (Beyond the Line Of Sight) flashlight.
Acebeam W30 Long Range LEP Flashlight features a so-called PCC (Phosphor Crystal Coating) layer on a metallic substrate that produces the light beam. Using the convex lenses, the light beam is focused into a very narrow cone of only 1.8°.
Obviously, Acebeam W30 Long Range LEP Flashlight is anything but a typical LED EDC flashlight.

Acebeam W30 Flashlight Features and Specifications
