A remarkable flashlight head with two synchronised light sources (X-LENS Technology) is the most prominent feature of the LED Lenser X14. The focusable LED flashlight from the Xtreme Series ensures impressive lighting performance. Up to 450 lumens radiate from the dual lamp head to form an adjustable, circular cone of light. Three lighting programs with up to eight lighting functions (Smart Light Technology) enable the torch to be configured individually. Because of its diverse light programs, the X14 is not is not only suitable for sports and hobby purposes, but also for security personnel and tactical missions.
LED Lenser X-LENS Technology -
An industry first, X-Lens Technology combines multiple LED's into one seamlessly projected beam of light. Add to that an optimised heat synching system that enables us to drive our LED'ss harder and you get unprecedented output from common batteries and in handheld sizes.
Each LED is projected though our patented Advanced Focus System, the unique lens/reflector combination that concentrates the light by using the strengths of a reflector for long distance and those of a lens for close up. When you put the power of multiple LED's through this unique concentration process, the output sets even greater bars to entry. Beyond that, you have the ability to take the light from a long distance spot with power and reach, to an extremely clean, easy to read by close up beam and all points in between.
LED Lenser X Series -
The X Series offers lamps for those who like superlatives. Particularly the focusable X21 shows the striking light output that can be created by employing seven chips. With this lamp, illumining large areas and achieving impressive ranges are child’s play.
LED Lenser Advanced Focus System -
Traditionally light focusing systems have consisted of either a lens, or a reflector. Lenses have the advantage of emitting a homogenous light pattern for distances almost 70% of the light is scattered and lost.
Conversely, while reflectors do a better job of capturing a higher percentage of light for long distances, when they are used for up close reading scattered light causes "rings" and "holes" in the light pattern leading to eye fatigue.
In both these cases, the lumen count (brightness) loses its validity as light is misdirected and wasted. That's why we decided to try something different.
If you pull together the strengths of the lens and reflector into one combined system, you achieve clear, homogeneous light spill for up close reading and a sharply focused beam for long distance viewing.
This is exactly what we've done with the Advanced Focus System (AFS); a unique and patented lens/reflector optic. AFS means reading the map up close is easy on the eyes and then focusing to find the path or landmark in the distance, clear and bright.
