The Arkfeld Pro can be considered as an enhanced iteration of both the original Arkfeld and the Arkfeld UV. It integrates white light, green laser, and UV light into a single body, thereby increasing its overall size for more efficient functionality.
Additional improvements incorporated in the Pro model comprise of the UV lamp that now features a 900mw output, which is a significant 55% increase in UV output over the original Arkfeld UV. On turning on both UV lights concurrently, the Pro version visibly outshines its predecessor, with even better camera visibility than anticipated.
Furthermore, the Arkfeld Pro boasts an enhanced power capacity for its green laser. To illustrate this, allow me to demonstrate by comparing the original Arkfeld in green laser mode to the Pro version.
You will immediately notice a discernible disparity in brightness, with the green dot on the Pro version significantly more vibrant. This exemplifies why it has been aptly named the Arkfeld Pro, as it encompasses numerous advancements surpassing those of its predecessor, the previous Arkfeld model.
Certainly, there are certain trade-offs to consider. One notable distinction is the larger physical dimensions of the Arkfeld Pro when compared side by side with its counterparts. The Pro version exhibits increased length, width, and thickness, resulting in a heavier overall build.
However, this size differential can be attributed to the inclusion of a larger battery. Specifically, the Arkfeld Pro incorporates an internal battery with a robust capacity of 1500 mAh, surpassing the capacities of the aforementioned versions by 42.9%.
In terms of luminosity, both flashlights offer 1,000 lumens, while the Pro version shines brighter with a 30% increase, boasting an impressive 1,300 lumens. These enhancements contribute to the overall performance and functionality of the Arkfeld Pro.
The Arkfeld Pro incorporates several features borrowed from the Arkfeld UV model. One such feature is the double-sided anti-slip texture, which offers superior grip and handling characteristics. Additionally, the Pro version includes a two-way pocket clip, a notable addition that was absent in the original Arkfeld model.
Despite these adaptations, the Arkfeld Pro retains the narrow tail Type design, similar to that found on the Arkfeld UV, ensuring ease of use and portability.
The Arkfeld Pro incorporates several key features inspired by the Arkfeld UV model. Notably, it adopts the double-sided anti-slip texture from the UV version, providing enhanced grip and stability during usage. Additionally, the Arkfeld Pro introduces a two-way pocket clip, a functional attribute absent in the original Arkfeld model.
While embracing these advancements, the Pro version upholds the slender tail Type design, reminiscent of the Arkfeld UV, thus ensuring optimal maneuverability and user-friendly ergonomics.
Simultaneously, the Arkfeld Pro maintains its incorporation of four LED power indicators. Upon pressing the button once more, you will observe a power-on indicator featuring four LED lights. Each LED corresponds to a distinct brightness level. However, when the power level falls below 10%, only the initial LED will illuminate, transitioning to a red hue. Furthermore, the battery status is conveyed through five indicators represented by the four LEDs.
Let us now examine the rotary dial, which serves as the central control for all operations of the device. By rotating this single side switch, users have the ability to seamlessly transition between the UV, white light, and green laser modes. However, it is important to note a notable distinction on this updated rotary dial.
Unlike its predecessors, the Arkfeld and Arkfeld UV models, the dial now features a single small bump instead of two. As a result, individuals who are accustomed to the previous iterations may require a short period of adjustment in order to acclimate to the revised design.
