7 simple practical tips for buying a tactical flashlight
A flashlight is one of the most important every day carry (EDC) item that we should have with us. Not only does this amazing device light your path but can as well be used as a defense weapon, saving you from a dangerous situation.
1: Material of body must be anodized aluminum
Conclusion: tactical flashlight’s material must be anodized aluminum alloy by DANKUNG standards
2: XM-L2 Emitter rather than Q5 or T6 emitter
XM-L2 has the overwhelming better performance in terms of brightness, reliability, throw, flood.
Take the 'lumen' for example. Lumens means the measure of the total amount of light from a given source. It’s an important of metric of brightness. Another metric of brightness is Candela which is less used.
Theoretically XM-L2 has maximum 1052 lumens, XM-T6 has maximum 850 lumens and Q5 has maximum 248 lumens.
Conclusion: Choose flashlights with XM-L2 Emitter rather than Q5 or T6 emitter, even though XM-L2 is is sort of expensive.
Caution: Some vendors falsely indicate the lumens. Please see below image which shows the small 1-emitter flashlight has 1800 lumens, that's impossible.
3: Zoomable for adjustable throw and flood
Throw and flood are two most used terms when describing a flashlight. Generally speaking, throw means distance of beam and flood means scope of beam.
Conclusion: Choose the zoomable flashlight with XM-L2 emitter.
4: Low-Power-Weak-Beam Switch
5: About Surefire, UltraFire, SupFire , superfire, Trustfire
Conclusion: Just buy UltraFire, SupFire , superfire, Trustfire from vendors your trust .
There is an important thing you should pay special attention. Choose the flashlight with ‘low-power-weak-beam’ function rather than ‘low-power-cut-off’ function for your cycling.
