When the L7 was designed, the main idea was to create a flashlight that withstands extreme heat and cold and is resistant to stress and strain, e.g. shocks or dust. Furthermore, the lamp needed to be ultra bright, elegant and handy.
The result of the engineering work is worthy of notice. The LED Lenser L7 features the Advanced Focus System, considered as one of the best flashlight reflector systems in the world.
Its shatter resistant polycarbonate housing makes the lamp not only lightweight but also shockproof, and its modular design ensures reliability in the desert as well as in the mountains.
LED Lenser L Series
The housings of these lamps are particularly lightweight and handy because they consist of a very special material: polycarbonate. Polycarbonate weighs only about half as much as aluminium, it is temperature resistant from minus 175 degrees to plus 175 degrees Centigrade, and also extremely shockproof and shatterproof. Aircraft cockpit windows are made from this material. Thanks to PC, the lamp housings are weatherproof, extremely robust and smooth to the touch even in high mountains, since they do not easily transmit coldness.
Due to the sum of their advantages, our L Series models are ideal pieces of equipment for outdoor activities.
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 it was 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 has been 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.
