BATTERY LIFE

 

 

Black Diamond is launching a new battery life testing protocol. In 2002 we collaborated with other manufacturers to create a testing method to define 'beam distance' and 'battery runtime'. We collectively called this the "Moonlight Standard" which was based on the amount of light from a full moon on a clear night. In 2009 a new protocol was approved by ANSI (American National Standards Institute); BD was part of the creation of this standard. This new FL-1 Standard will now be adopted by BD and other outdoor-industry manufacturers and we will include battery life testing down to 10% of the original output.

From the time the product reaches 10% of original light output, we will continue to run the battery until it reaches a threshold of 0.25 lux at 4 meters. This is the amount of light we feel is usable for many activities. This new " Reserve Time" will also be represented on packaging and other marketing materials. Testing "beam distance" to the FL-1 protocol is the same as our original Moonlight Standard, again using 0.25 lux as the cutoff mark.
