How does the colour temperature of the torch come from?

How does the colour temperature of the torch come from?

Body temperature refers to the "temperature of the body" and water temperature refers to the "temperature of water". What about "colour temperature"? Everyone often sees the value of the colour temperature in the torch manual, so many people ask, does the colour also have a temperature? What exactly is colour temperature?

So let's look into what we mean by Colour Temperature.

To expressing the colour temperature in general terms we use the words “cool and warm colour“. it can also be accurate to an value. This precise value is a unit of measurement that indicates the colour components contained in light.


Why use temperature to define colour?

To expressing the colour temperature in general terms we use the words “cool and warm colour“. it can also be accurate to an value. This precise value is a unit of measurement that indicates the colour components contained in light.

For example, a piece of iron is black at first, and turns red as the temperature rises, but at the same time we found that the flame of a higher temperature than the molten iron is white and slightly bluish in colour. This proves that different temperatures will emit different colours of light.

When heated to a certain temperature, the spectral component of the light emitted by the black body is called the colour temperature at this degree, and the unit of measurement is "K" (Kelvin).

Then, just like the light emitted by our torches, which has the same spectral composition as the light emitted by a black body at a certain temperature, it is called by a K colour temperature. For example, the colour temperature of the light source of Warrior X Turbo is between 6000~6700K.


What is the colour temperature of common light colours?

Generally, LEDs have cool white light (colour temperature around 6500K), medium white light (colour temperature around 4000K), and warm white light (colour temperature below 3000K). Different colours correspond to different colour temperatures. The colour temperature does not indicate the performance of the light source.

Colour temperature is calibrated by this method, and is exactly the opposite of what the general public thinks of "warm" and "cold". For example, people usually feel that red, orange, and yellow are warmer, white and blue are cooler, but the colour temperature of red is actually The lowest and then gradually increase are orange, yellow, white, and blue, with blue being the highest colour temperature.

The light with a low colour temperature is yellowish, such as incandescent light, about 2800K, and the lamp with high colour temperature is blue, such as a purple lamp, above 9000K.


Different colour temperatures, different applicable scenes.

Warm light

The colour temperature of warm light is below 3300K, and warm light is similar to incandescent lamps. The warm white light of the Obulb is a warm atmospheric light that has a colour temperature of 2700K. The colour temperature of a candlelight is around 2000K so we can see how similar these two light sources are.

There are more red light components, which can give you a feeling of warmth, health, comfort, and rest. These are suitable for our Homes, Hotels, dormitories and other places or places where the colour temperature is relatively low; falling asleep with warm colour light is more stable and comfortable.


The colour temperature of neutral light is between 3300K-5000K and is a soft light. The colour temperature of the Olantern Mini is 5000K, and the light effect is soft and uniform.  It is very suitable for a camping trip. Or in case of power outages at home the Olantern Mini light offers security and reassurance.

Cool light

The light source is close to natural light, and the colour temperature is above 5000K, which is bright and can help people concentrate. Often in tactical torches, the demand for colour temperature will be a cool white light. The colour temperature of the Warrior mini 2 reaches 6000~7000K, and with high luminous flux, it can be seen more clearly and accurately, which can help with identifying an object in the dark.

The strong white light irradiation is as large and uniform as daylight, which can suppress and interfere with the enemy, and at the same time expose the danger hidden in the dark, see more clearly and comprehensively, and further protect your personal safety.

Now, do you have a recognition of the colour temperature of the torch? If not, stay in our blog, more torches introduction or professional knowledge will be posted.

Light Quality

The Olantern Mini has a tornado-shaped light diffuser that produces a 360º balanced, uniform beam – the diffuser softens the light output, thus reducing eye strain.

I found the light to be very comfortable to use, even for an extended period of time.

The Olantern Mini has many useful features such as a motion sensor to locate the power button in the dark and the red light to preserve night vision.

It’s also extremely small and portable making it ideal for a camping kit list as it won’t add a great deal of weight or volume.

What can we do after lockdown?

What can we do after lockdown?

During the last year, our lives have been severely affected by the pandemic. We no longer hang out or work as before, as it has been the case for a lot of people that they feel safer staying at home. Things change a lot.

However, there is something that will never change. That is our love for the great outdoors. After lockdown, do you miss the fresh air, the landscape and the open space? It is time to plan some trips. Have you made a plan to enjoy nature time? Here I have got some ideas to share with you.


Camping is always fun! Especially if you have children, it will be wonderful to have family camping time. Setting up a tent at a campsite or by a lake, we can tell stories, sing songs or just have some chats with our families and friends. Alongside the fascinating scenery, it will be relaxing and enjoyable. And Olantern mini and Obulb will be your best companions.

Olantern mini, which looks like an oil lamp, helps to bring us back some memories of years gone by. Decorating and illuminating, it’s environmentally friendly as a LED. What is most important, its small body would not take much space in your kit. We know it’s annoying to take lots of stuff outdoors, so the Olantern mini is palm sized. It will be easy to carry such a small light to make your campsite more stylish.

Obulb helps to enliven atmosphere. It shines for your cozy time with family and friends. Hanging over the tent or from a tree branch, Obulb is perfect for that little bit extra. It is also perfect for kids and the lightweight camper where the weight of your pack is most important.


Hiking is regarded as one of the best ways to appreciate nature. From neat mountains, stylish houses to blooming flowers, all these beautiful sights are available while rambling on paths. With the starry sky, bird song and refreshing breeze, an evening spent outside can be worth every second. After staying in the house for such a long time, it will be wonderful to walk across the fields and ford the streams.

As we know, a bright torch with long runtime is essential for hiking. The portable Baton 3 premium will be the best choice. Its 1200 lumen output will illuminate the fields. The charging case can fully charge the torch up to 3.7 times, which makes the torch boast a max runtime of 20 days. With Baton 3 premium, we are not afraid of running of battery during our camping trip. Here is a small tip: hiking with a Baton 3 and a Baton 3 premium, and you can still have light to hand while the other one is charging.

If you’d like to view the whole scenery, you may enjoy climbing mountains. As you go higher and higher, light clouds, stretching forests and unfathomable depths, all are in your sight. If you prefer to climb mountains after sunset, the Perun 2 will be a guide allowing you to see a different side of nature at dusk. With right angle illumination and a headband, it is the perfect headlamp for handsfree use.

Adventures will also be a good choice. Cave exploration, canyons hiking, jungle exploration, river rafting, rock climbing, all are excellent ways to explore nature. And you will obtain some unforgettable memories.

Before setting off on your next adventures, consider taking a Freyr with you. The Freyr with its 4 colour lights, which can be used for night fishing, hunting, stargazing or signaling. One Freyr will meet all your needs in the outdoors. With a silicone traffic wand, Freyr also can be used to mark a potentially dangerous area. A Freyr is a multipurpose torch to guard your safety in adventures.

Are you ready to breathe the air mixed up with the smell of grass and the fragrance of flowers? What are you planning to do in nature? Don’t forget to take Olight with you. Whether you're planning hiking or camping, our torches make sure you can push your surroundings in brightness.
