Tac Light Pro

32 Votes

Rate this product

Tac Light Pro is a super-bright flashlight that you can also use as a lantern. If you turn the flashlight upside-down or sideways and gently pull on its bottom to lengthen it, a powerful LED lantern will appear. The lantern can be quickly converted back into a flashlight and vice versa when your needs change. As a flashlight or a lantern, it's tough and durable and will withstand being dropped on the ground or into a bit of water.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Tac Light Pro is $19.99 and the shipping is FREE! Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: taclightpro.com

How It Works

When used as a flashlight, the Tac Light Pro's LED light within will shine 22 times as brightly as an ordinary flashlight, and two times as brightly as the original Tac Light flashlight. It has a zoom lens that will enable you to see objects at a size 200 times larger than they really are. You'll also be able to choose between five modes of light, including a strobe mode, which can be used to alert others when you're in danger. When being used as a lantern, this light is just as powerful, as each one is illuminated by a 180-degree panel of LED light chips that are capable of filling an entire room with brightness.

Features

  • Red Power Button

    Each of these lights has a red power button that'll be hard for anyone to miss, and just one push will turn the light on. Besides being functional, the power button looks great against the black shade of the flashlight's body, and due to its coloring, each entire flashlight gives off a bold, powerful vibe.

  • Five Modes

    With one of these lights, when you're using it as a flashlight, you'll be able to switch between five different modes whenever you choose. The modes will give you varying levels of brightness or enable you to focus your light in different ways, but the most useful mode may be the strobe mode. When the flashlight's in this mode, it'll emit a flashing light, which can alert people driving, walking or cycling by if you're in trouble on the side of the road or elsewhere outdoors.

  • Waterproof

    While you shouldn't submerge this flashlight-lantern combination in a pool or a lake intentionally, it is waterproof if it accidentally comes in contact with a bit of water. If it falls in a puddle or gets soaked with raindrops or snow flurries, you should expect it to continue working just effectively as it did before. That means, if you're an outdoor enthusiast, you won't need to restrict your use of it to sunny days.

  • Impact Resistant

    The Tac Light Pro is also impact resistant, so you won't need to worry about damaging it if you drop it, either. Actually, it should be able to withstand being driven over by the tire of a motorized vehicle without a decline in performance (although it might need to be cleaned afterward!).

  • Magnetic Base

    Every Tac Light Pro has a magnetic base, which will come in handy if you want to attach it to your vehicle or certain household appliances while troubleshooting problems or doing maintenance work. By relieving yourself of the responsibility to hold onto a flashlight, you'll have two free hands to complete your job instead of the one you'd have otherwise, and this will hopefully speed up your work.

Positive Points

  • Good for Power Outages

    Since the Tac Light Pro is so bright and runs via batteries, it's a useful tool to have around when the power's out. It's so bright that it'll fill a room with as much (or perhaps more) light as some lamps would. Plus, if no one wants to hang onto it, you can turn it upside down and place it on a flat surface, and then convert it to a hands-free lantern.

  • Long Lasting

    This light is full of LED chips, and all lights of the LED variety have a tendency to last for a long time, much longer than lights of an equivalent size but a different type. Therefore, even if you use it on almost a daily basis, this flashlight-lantern combination may last you for years without needing to be replaced.

  • Promotes Safety

    Even if you never need to use the strobe light feature in a dangerous situation, this flashlight will make virtually any outdoor activity you do at night a safer one. By hanging onto it as you roam around, regardless of whether you're in the city or the woods, you'll be able to clearly see potential obstacles far ahead of you and aim to avoid them. You may also be able to frighten or disorient a potential human attacker if you shine your light in their eyes.

Negative Points

  • Won't Attach to Head

    It would be helpful if you could attach this flashlight to your head. In that case, you wouldn't need to find something magnetic to attach it to or stop and set it down as a lantern if you no longer wanted to carry it. Unfortunately, however, it hasn't been designed to attach to a person's head in a secure manner.

  • Batteries Not Included

    You'll need batteries to run one of these flashlights, but these aren't included with any of them, so you'll need to obtain your first set and any replacements on your own.

  • Replacing Light Could be Hard

    It may be difficult or impossible to replace any of the LED chips that make up the LED panel within each flashlight, due to how the chips are put together into one panel. Even if only one or two chips burn out before the others, you might have to get an entire new flashlight without replacing the chips or the panel within. In the event that the entire panel burns out at once, replacing it still might not be possible, due to its shape and how it's inserted in the flashlight.

Save Money

Without a device like the Tac Light Pro, you'll probably need to obtain both a flashlight and a lantern to set on your picnic table if you're going on a camping trip. With this device, though, there'll be no need for two illumination tools, as this one will do the job of both.

Critical Advice

Although the LED panels within each light are built to last for years, you still should be careful not to leave your flashlight on when you're not using it. Even when it's sitting on a flat surface in your home or elsewhere as a lantern, remember to give the power button a quick click when it becomes light out or you leave the area. If you don't turn the power off in this way, you'll likely end up buying many replacement battery sets.

Warnings

  • Do Not Throw

    This flashlight will withstand accidental impacts, but it isn't a good idea to throw it around on purpose. The flashlight may survive, but the batteries may get jiggled out of position, and if someone were to get hit in the head with this sturdy flashlight, they might end up hurt.

I Regret Buying it!

Nope Nope

8 weeks delivery, Overpriced. Check the price on Amazon before buying. I bought a Streamlight 88034 ProTac on Amazon for the same price and it is 10X the light. Much much brighter.
