Brite Strike Tactical Blue Dot Two Cell HLS Flashlight
SKU #: Brite-BD-198-HLS-2C
Brite-Strike® “Tactical Blue-Dot™” tactical LED flashlights were designed by police officers for police officers. The body is CNC machine milled from a single billet of high grade aerospace aluminum. The proprietary black anodized finish exceeds Mil Spec class two type III. The unique tri-sided body is more ergonomic for better gripping. The front crenelated strike crown is blunted and the rear crown is more aggressive for maximum effectiveness in applying pressure point control techniques.The pocket clip is specifically designed for line officers and is reversed from other tactical lights. The clip features a greater clearance for lighting fast draws from either a BDU pocket, duty belt, or six pocket police pant. It also allows for quick mounting on a uniform epaulet, and quick removal when needed.The beam is a brilliant white light with a wider “spread” for a flood effect, which illuminates the entire area of a vehicle on a motor vehicle stop.
Tactical Touch® Switch Design:
All of our lights can be turned on and all modes accessed using a single finger or thumb on one hand, thus meeting our definition of a true “Tactical Flashlight”. We simply never understood how a switch that requires a two-handed twisting and turning action to turn on or off or to access any functions made sense. Accidental turn-ons are prevented by slightly recessing the switch within the rear crenelated crown. Our patented design not only protects the switch from damage but is very effective when applying pressure point techniques.
BD 198 HLS Switch:
The patented hi-tech HLS (Hi/Lo/Strobe) “Tactical Touch®” switch design allows the operator to turn the light on with a full click on, then allows the user to rapidly and silently move to low then strobe, then back to high. The switch has six chips to perform these functions, and is protected from damage by being slightly recessed within the crenelated crown. As today’s LED’s are nearly indestructible, it is the chips in the light and end cap that are prone to damage causing a light to fail.

Good handheld light if you like the pocket clip. I don't, hence the 2 stars. I pulled the pocket clip off in order to make it easier to mount it to my patrol rifle which exposed a hole into the battery compartment. Now no longer water resistant. Had to cover with epoxy.
ProsNot a bad hand held light.
ConsCannot remove pocket clip which is a deal breaker for me.

The metal construction is strong and the checkering provides good grip. The crown on the front is aggressive for impact use. The rear is not as aggressive but still can do some damage. The fit in hand is good (medium to large hand). My primary issue with this light is that there is no intermittent ON. You depress the button to turn the light on (immediately goes to high) and then lightly depress the switch button to cycle through the high, low, and strobe modes, and then fully depress the switch to keep the light in the mode you want. I gave it four stars for brightness and fit and usability for utilitarian usage.
