$150, tactical, single output @ 1,000+ lm for 1+hr
« on: June 05, 2019, 09:29:52 PM »
Hi guys,
I recently posted about looking for a tactical light for my wife and myself. After reading further, I believe I know what we need. Hope to hear your suggestions:

Budget: $150 each, may go up if the light offers more
Battery: USB rechargeable
Output: Single-output
Lumen count: 1,000+
Use duration: 1hr + (full battery to dead battery at 1,000+ lumens: 1hr +)
Click: 1 tail button for on/off switch and momentary light
Quality: Tough (we want to buy it once and use it for years), water/splash proof
Length: 7 in or less

Currently, only the Surefire Fury DFT meets all of this. However, I read that it gets so hot after 5 minutes I canít hold it. My question now is how I can deal with this, and how long I should expect to be able to hold the light.

Hope to hear from you

Welcome aboard.

Boy, so many options these days. But finding a light that small that can hold the 1000 lumens steady is a toughy.

Probably best to find a high candella light around 600 lumens since those can withstand their internal heat build up enough to not cause heat induced dimming from 1000 to about 600.

If 600 lumens can disorient a bad guy at 75 feet for example, 1000 lumens the reach might extend to 85 feet.
