It is designed to be the ultimate in personal protection since it doubles as an escape hammer you can use to quickly break the windows in case of emergencies. The self-defense mode on the light function is meant to disorient any attackers before they approach you. As such not only can you use it to shine lights but you can grip it the same as you would a bat then use it to fend off any attackers.
- Bring on Planes
Due to the fact that this particular design does not have the bezel which is sharpened with the different edges you can carry it with you on airplane. Most tactical flashlights that do have the bezel or serrated edge can be taken away by TSA agents as they can be considered a striking tool.
- Simple Design
The best flashlights for tactical self-defense are those which are simple and have the regular stroke or SOS functions which this one has. You also want one which is waterproof so it will work no matter the conditions which this one has. Finally, you want something which is constructed from aluminum which is a tough yet like metal. This gives you an easy grip when you need it most.
This flashlight says that it is 22 times brighter than regular flashlight but it offers no information on the lumens which is how one would measure brightness. Without understanding how you would measure brightness or which bulbs are used, it is difficult to verify whether this is true. You want at least 120 lm of light output in order for the flashlight to be effective as a self-defense tool. Anything less than this is not bright enough to disorient attackers. Unfortunately because this information is not provided you have no way of knowing whether this a good purchase or not.
It doesn't actually tell you which bulbs are used for which types of batteries are required to operate the flashlight. Many say it is always best to have LED lights because incandescent bulbs will break easily if you drop the flashlight whereas LED bulbs can withstand a good beating. Incandescent bulbs are also not very energy-efficient and you will burn through not only the bulbs but batteries much faster by comparison. Again, this particular design does not tell you whether it uses LED bulbs so it is hard to figure out whether or not it is a good purchase.
The best flashlight for tactical situations should one need it is something small enough to carry around in your pocket for everyday use. You don't want flashlight to be bigger than the size of your palm. With this particular design you don't have that option.
This particular design claims the attack of the flashlight which is best meant for personal defense and while it does work in this capacity what it doesn't have is the serrated bezel at the end. The serrated bezel is what you would normally use to break windows in case of an emergency such as a car that drove off into a lake or two sendoff attackers more violently.
Does It Really Work?
Yes, this works as a great flashlight. A tactical light as a flashlight that you are supposed to use with a firearm so that you can better identify your target and illuminate the target. Tactical flashlights are usually mounted to your weapon so that they have a light beam which is parallel to the weapon itself but they can be handheld. Such tactical flashlights are generally reserved for the military and Armed Forces in addition to police officers or security personnel. Nonetheless this particular design is one of many available to the public meant for regular consumer use.
How it's Different from Competitors
There are many tactical flashlights on the market today. By comparison this particular one does not have as many features as the alternatives. You will find many tactical flashlights which post the same if not similar levels of military grade, high-performance. Most of the others focused heavily on having LED lights which do not need replacements where is this one doesn't say which lights it has. Other options also emphasize multiple features built into a single flashlight beyond simply strobe functions or aluminum alloy build. These typically have sharper ring around the actual lens which is used to break windows or to fend off attackers.
Why Use it for Self Defense
Flashlights are vital for self-defense even though they are often overlooked. Flashlights, when used correctly, can be very handy in difficult situations. You can use a flashlight in places like movie theaters or airplanes where you cannot bring other weapons.
They're also great in locations where there are strict weapons laws and you still want to carry something for personal self-defense. Using tactical flashlights helps you identify threats. Attackers often use the cover of darkness to their advantage but with bright flashlight you can identify threats even in a low light environment. Illuminate the advantage and attacker might have by staying in the shadows by shining a bright light on them. Some cases you will find that simply shining a light on a would-be attacker is enough to get them to leave you alone.
Beyond that momentarily disorient your attackers by shining a bright light directly in their eyes. This will quite literally blind them for a few seconds which gives you enough time to defend yourself or possibly runaway.
