Browning Endorses ANSI FL-1 Performance Standards for it's Flashlights

Release Date: 1/1/2010

Beginning in 2010, many top flashlight manufacturers have agreed to use the same standards (ANSI-FL1) for measuring performance, so that consumers can make an apples-to-apples comparison between models. Browning is proud to endorse and participate in these new standards for portable lighting.*

  • Lumens = Brightness. A traditional 2D flashlight is approximately 15 - 20 lumens.
  • Battery Life (Run Time) is defined as the time elapsed when the batteries are new to when the light reaches 10% of the original brightness.
  • Maximum Distance is measured as the distance in meters from the light to where it decreases in brightness to 0.25 lux — about the brightness of the full moon on a clear night.

* For Browning lights with multiple settings, the Lumens, Battery Life, and Distance are stated in the specifications at the highest setting (100% power), unless indicated otherwise.
