The Warrior 3S is a powerful dual-switch tactical flashlight with a proximity sensor. The cool white LED paired with a TIR optic lens delivers up to 2,300 lumens. It features 6 output settings that can be selected on demand using the side switch. For tactical operations, the dual-stage tail switch allows quick and easy access to the most important settings such as turbo and strobe. The newly adopted proximity sensor drops the brightness level proactively in case of obstruction. The bezel is also less aggressive than before for a more comfortable pocket-carry experience.
About the proximity sensor, you may want to ask:
1. Q: When will turn on?
A: The sensor is only active in high and turbo output settings. When active, the sensor drops the output to medium brightness when it detects an obstruction in front of the lense. This prevents the light from overheating if it's accidentally turned on in a pocket, or in any scenario where the light is left on and placed face down near any surface.
2. Q: How to turn it off?
A: When the light is turned on, double click (or triple click) the side button within 5s of the proximity sensor, the brightness will enter the corresponding gear automatically. The function will restore after the light is turned off.
3. Q: Why does it work?
A: When the output shows 3 brightness indicators, the proximity sensor will be active, and the output brightness will automatically decrease to avoid the high temperature generated by the strong light from burning out the obstruction/lens.
