Elzetta Alpha Modular Tactical LED Flashlight - Build Your Own Light
SKU #: EL-Alpha-A
Makes overall flashlight between ~3.4" and ~4 oz.
A great choice for every day cary (EDC) and weapon-mounting.
Available in 24 unique configurations.
1. Select a Bezel - Standard or Crenellated
- a. Standard: Smooth profile minimizes snagging
b. Crenellated: Scalloped profile provides strike implement for self defense/personal protection.
- a. Standard: Excellent light projection to illuminate distant objects. "Soft edge" beam minimizes tunnel-vision effects. Perfect for rifle-mounted applications. A great choice for long distance & general use.
b. Flood: Outstanding light dispersion, or "spill". Illuminates a wide area with little or no "hot spot". Exceptional choice for close quarters battle (CQB) applications. Perfect for shotgun-mounted applications. The best choice for indoor or close-range use.
- a. Rotary: Momentary activation is achieved by pressing the pushbutton. Constant On is achieved by rotating the Tailcap fully clockwise. Some operators consider this design to be "Tactically Correct"
b. Click: Momentary activation is achieved by pressing the pushbutton lightly. Constant On is achieved by pressing the pushbutton firmly until it 'Clicks'. Pressing firmly again will Click the Light off.
c. Alpha High/Low: Activation is achieved exactly like the Clicky Tailcap in either the High or Low mode. High Output (650 or 900 Lumens) occurs when the Tailcap is rotated fully Clockwise (screwed all the way on). Low Output (~15 Lumens) occurs when the Tailcap is rotated Counter-Clockwise (unscrewed) anywhere from 1/8 to 1/2 rotation from the High position. A simple, intuitive User Interface with great versatility.
d. High/Strobe: The High/Strobe Tailcap operates exactly like the High/Low Tailcap only a high-frequency Strobe replaces the 'Low' mode. The simple user interface requires no multiple clicks to operate, no confusing menus to navigate, and no precise movements or detents to manipulate. Unlike competitive units, this Tailcap does not draw any current when not in use and will not drain batteries while in storage. The Strobe function can disorient an assailant and is an excellent option for self defense.
e. Remote Tape Switch 5 Inch Cable: The Remote Tape Switch provides operation of the light via a molded pressure pad. Elzetta's unique constant-on feature allows hands-free operation. Fail-safe constant-on feature remains fully functional even if pressure pad is damaged or cable is severed. 5-inch cable works well with vertical foregrips & applications where hand placement is near the flashlight.
f. Remote Tape Switch 12 Inch Cable: The Remote Tape Switch provides operation of the light via a molded pressure pad. Elzetta's unique constant-on feature allows hands-free operation. Fail-safe constant-on feature remains fully functional even if pressure pad is damaged or cable is severed. 12-inch cable is great for longer barreled weapons or where a greater distance exists between the operator's hand and the flashlight.

This is a pre packaged kit where a tailcap is needed to order this. you are able to purchase each piece individually though on the elzetta page of our site in which you can order which ever head you would like as well the body style.
