50% Brighter, 50% Wider
We're announcing four newcomers to our extremely popular Quark ''X'' series: our Quark X AA² and our Quark X 123² in both our regular and tactical interfaces!
Our ''X'' series proudly feature CREE's latest XM-L emitters. We started with the world's first XM-L flashlight, our very own pocket-rocket, the MiNi X 123. We then stepped it up again with our Quark 123˛ Turbo X. Now, we're delivering more lumen firepower in our new Quark X AA˛ and Quark X 123˛ models!
CREE's XM-L is a bigger (and more efficient at higher currents) LED than their XP-G and can be driven much harder due to its breakthrough packaging. Simply put, the XM-L's bigger die puts out more 'volume' of light (for you automotive types, this is similar to the torque-versus-horsepower concept), and when we swap it in place of an XP-G, it creates a wider hotspot as well to help reduce tunnel-vision.
Because the XM-L is a much more efficient LED, it puts out over 50% more light when driven at our max output! So what's the real numbers? How about a Quark X 123˛ that puts out up to 360 out-the-front lumens? Or the Quark X AA˛ - just two alkaline AA batteries putting out 280 out-the-front lumens on max? That's the power of the XM-L!
Be sure to check out these new XM-L models as well as the rest of our ''X'' series line-up!
