Pros

  • Use During a Breakin

    During a break in one of the scariest things that could possibly happen, you might hear people rattling around but not be able to see. A bright light such as a bright flashlight has been proven to be more than effective at deterring and scaring off burglars. As soon as burglar see lights on in the house they are very likely to leave. This means that having a bright flashlight on hand can help you to protect your family.

  • Use in Fires

    Home fires are very serious problems and people largely overestimate the power the fire can have. Individuals get seriously injured when they stumble around their house in the dark especially when the room is full of smoke. Strong flashlights give you the ability to see through hazardous conditions and to get your family to safety.

  • Use for Safety

    Flashlights are great weapon to carry around at all times. Carrying a flashlight in your purse, in your pocket, in your car, or otherwise always having one with you can be a true lifesaver. A bright light temporarily stun an assailant or deter someone from hurting you. What's more, having a flashlight even when you are simply holding your hand can make a punch or throw significantly more powerful and dangerous to your perpetrator.

  • Use While Driving

    For many people driving on a regular basis is stressful. It's also one of the most dangerous things that happens. When you are driving late at night and you need to change a flat tire on the side of the road, having a good flashlight can save you. It will make sure that other driver see you and stay out of your way while you are working.

How it's Different from Competitors

Compared to competing flashlights, this unit offers top-of-the-line customer service. Without sacrificing quality for price, this particular flashlight is made with premium grade aluminum, LED light bulbs would shine significantly brighter than normal light bulbs, and has been tested in many scenarios. The company stresses that not only is the product of our product with the business and the service offered is much better. Trained customer service teams are available to help any customer with any problem or question.

How It Works

Said light is ultra-durable and impact resistant. When thrown on the ground or struck with something it will not break. In the advertisement you see a large truck actually drive over the flashlight and its closed form and the flashlight comes out unscathed. There is a striking bevel for situations where you might be attacked. Bevel is simply a bunch of nodules around the actual light part so that if you were to hit someone you have something with sharp points. The charging unit stinks directly in one end of the flashlight to give it life. When fully charged you do get the super bright 800 lm. The entire unit folds down into itself when it is not being charged.

When Attacked

Understand that if you were to use the strobe function on this flashlight it would help to create some disorientation for the person in whose eyes you are shining it. Other than making the movements slow, it will not stop and assailant or perpetrator. Disruption division certainly takes place but understand that during a lethal confrontation you are more likely to be very stressed. Also when you are unable to maintain a perfect strobe shining in the eyes of the assailant. During a strobe exposure your attacker might be unable to identify your physical presence or your exact location which can inhibit their success. However, be sure to run away from any danger immediately after you employ the strobe function. Do not wait around and continue shining the light.

How to Use the Strobing

  1. History of Strobe Light

    Many people who use a flashlight that has a strobe feature are not often aware of the pros and cons associated with the strobe light deployment. The use of a strobe light to cause disorientation is a phenomenon which was first identified in the 1950s. When strobe lights are shown on a person that can cause dizziness and confusion. Such a phenomenon was actually explored after a series of unexplained helicopter crashes. Crashes happened after surviving crew members experienced dizziness and disorientation from the strobing affect that rotating blades cause.

  2. Disorientation

    A flash or a stroke disorientation is the result of an after image, otherwise known as a temporary visual imprint. This temporary visual imprint is caused by a brief exposure to high intensity levels of light. Said image will vary based on the light level, the time duration, or the frequency of the exposure. Disorientation takes place at specific light frequencies affect the brain and the light cycles through those frequencies move too fast for the brain to address. Tactical lights prohibit photoreceptors from resetting which shocks the vision.

    Strobe bright lights forces the brains perception input to arrive in different segments. This creates afterimages as the brain tries to fill in the partial images that were created by the exposure to the strobe light. As such it increases perceptual disparity. Even police units use blinding disorientation with high-intensity strobe lights.

Alternatives

  • J5 Tactical Flashlight

    J5 V2 is a special J5 tactical flashlight. Powerful, extremely bright, it has a blinding effect and produces up to 750 lm. The design is skid proof so if you drop it, it will not roll away. Adjustable focus range means you can change the focus for the light.

    There is a clip on the unit so you can stick it to your pants or a belt. Using batteries, it is great for camping, climbing, hunting, any outdoor activity, and more. There are five different modes available including the SOS Strobe function. Made from aluminum alloy, it also has the Bevel on the end for protection.

  • Other Gladiators

    Solar force gladiator and power tech gladiator are tactical flashlights with the same five different stroke functions, aluminum casing, durability, luminance, and bevel edges designed for protection.

Feeling Ripped Off

Like many others I bought what I thought was a $19.99 flashlight + the 1 year warranty. Realized as I pressed the Pay button that I was being charged for extras & ended up paying $79 +. I immediatly sent a email cancelling my Order & why & told them NOT to send Order. No reply. Sent another 4 emails re; cancelling Order. No reply. Order arrives. Send another 3 emails requesting return address. No reply. Finally a Email saying someone will contact me in 24 to 48 hrs. 4 weeks go, still waiting. Email again, no reply. Taken my money & gone. I have not even opened the parcel.

So Sad

I am a victim too, I ordered only once and got surprised why my credit card charged me another $39.95 for Gladiator
Don't order from this gladiatorflashigts. What in the ad is not same with the product they sent, like the zoom is 2000 but he order detail just write down the zoom is 3. What you get is just a normal flashlights. They misleading to to buy the tactical kit but their ever sent only send you a low quality normal flashlight. They miss lead peoples in their order form and never show you that they had shipping charger and tax, their never had the final check out. Their support will sometime reply you, said they are right and then never reply you again.

Scammers!

I was billed for $55.80 for a $19.95 flashlight on their ad. Bait & switch! I cancelled my order when I got a call from my bank fraud unit saying that a company callled gladiator in the u. K. Had billed my debit card for the $55.80. Included was $8.95 shipping and $6.95 sales tax. There's no sales tax in my state. Foreign customer rep impossible to understand. Buyer beware.

We were lucky to actually receive the product and its not too bad, however for some reason they have been taking $8.95 usd a month from our credit card and have read all the fine print and no where does it mention this. Shame on you for ripping people of. Have emailed and tried ringing the overseas number. First and I last time I have get scammed.

Gladiator Torch

Don't buy this torch, it costs more than it is advertised at, it worked once for me now it won't charge up, they try and get you to pay a membership every month. Get one in your own country because that company won't get back to you if you want a refund.

I have been charged twice from Gladiator Flashlights, San Diego, and have had to cancel my card. Price also increased with extras. Similar torches available from others at better prices. Lumen strength is debatable on all these units. Power consumtion reasonable with recharge battery ( 750 mAh ) running 90 minutes and still a reasonable but reduced light. ( Battery dropped from 3.7 to 3.1 v. ) Charger and battery unlabeled ( Illegal ) but works on 120 or 240 ac. No answer from e-mails & no instructions / info supplied.
