New Monstrum Tactical Flashlights

with No Comments

Monstrum Tactical is mostly known for their budget oriented tactical optics, LPVOs, and exceptionally good value scope mounts. They have also carried a line of weapon lights that maxed out at 400 lumens, which by today’s standards is low power. At SHOT Show 2023 Monstrum introduced their new Tracer EDC laser and flashlight which has a max 1000 lumen output. And they showed me a prototype angled foregrip with an integrated laser and weaponlight that outputs 2000 lumen. At time of filming, it didn’t have a name but maybe they’ll call it the Moondog.

Feyachi WL25 Weapon Light

with No Comments

The WL25 is Feyachi’s newest 1200 lumen weapon light. It has a premium pressure plate with momentary and constant-on buttons which comes with adapter plates that fix it to either Picatinny or M-Lok rail. Unfortunately, my model would not switch from Strobe/Alt to Low/Alt modes, despite my following the instructions. Despite this, I still found it to be Feyachi’s best-made tac light

As an aside, I had to upload this to YouTube 3 times. The first two times, YouTube’s staff flagged the video as being Advertiser Unfriendly. The first video: due to my showing how to install it on my rifle (which I showed was safely unloaded). The second video: because I still showed the light mounted to my rifle.
We are living in an insane nanny culture.

OLight PL-Mini 2

with No Comments

There’s a lot to like about this mini tac light. It’s as bright or brighter than some full-sized weapon lights but don’t stick out awkwardly post the muzzle. Speaking of full-sized lights, I found out that the magnetic charger is not compatible with the Olight PL-PRO. So don’t lose the charger or you’re going to have to order another one from Olight. That’s the one main downside with this light, I kinda wish it was USB-C instead.

Overall there’s a lot I like about this light: it’s bright, weighs next to nothing on my pistol, and is easy to manipulate and activate. It’s a lot better than my XC-1. Its closest competitor is the Klarus GL-1 which is about as small, has an adjustable length mounting system, is also 600 lumens but also has a strobe mode. I know some real-life Operators hate strobe (for valid reasons), so if you want a non-strobe compact weapon light go with Valkerie Mini.

Maglite, the one flashlight you need

with No Comments

How to calculate the lumen output of any flashlight. If you ever wondered if those crazy high lumen claims of those cheap Chinese lights are legit, use this US-made Maglite to check it yourself. Just download a Light Meter App to your phone and use this 100-lumen penlight as your benchmark. Because it’s 100 lumens, it’s easy math to determine how many times brighter the suspect light SHOULD be.

Before there was Surefire, Streamlight, or even the term ‘Tac Light’, there was Maglite. Founded in 1979, Maglite was the first mass-market duty flashlight made with aerospace-grade aluminum, and pioneering the use of ultra-bright bulb technology.






Klarus E2 Review: 7 Day Runtime?

The Klarus E2 is an aluminum-bodied EDC wilderness survival flashlight is scarcely bigger than the 18650 battery that powers it. With a max output of 1600 lumens and at low power, a max runtime of 168hrs (in my testing it fell short by 54hrs). Let’s take a look at what you get for a street price of about $70.


Lumintop TOOL AA 2.0 Review

with No Comments

For the price and features, the Lumintop TOOL AA 2.0 is the best AA EDC flashlight currently available. I put it through some performance and abuse tests to see if it lives up to that opinion.

It has 4 modes: low, medium, high, strobe, and a 650 lumens turbo mode if equiped with a 14500 LiON battery. But can use any AA cell with a max output of 400 lumens.
