    Great light!
    So far, this is the brightest light I've owned and puts to shame my other lights. I'm using 3 batteries and haven't expanded it to 4 yet and it is very bright and clear. I have had it activate twice by accident while on my duty belt because I caught the button on something in the office or truck. It's well built and for the sale price, a great value.
    ProsBright and a good value for the money.
    ConsIt activated twice by accident. A case that covers the activation button would solve that.

    Amazing light
    I use this light every night at work, I work outside graveyard and this light is crucial to my duty belt. Iv had it about 8 months now, and almost every single officer has asked me at some point where I got my light and Iv referred them here.
    ProsSuper bright, love different settings they all come in handy and have all been used for situations at work. If you buy this I would suggest getting the 18650 batteries to recharge when low, the other batteries die quickly and would be pricey in the end. Usually last me about a week of constant use before I need to recharge them.
    ConsOnly one issues I'm trying to workout now with the company is that after 8 months Iv noticed a decrease in the brightness, hoping to get it replaced or have some sort of solution to this issue. And the nylon holster is flimsily and would suggest upgrading to a better tactical one

    Good light
    Good flashlight Only thing with this light is doesnt run long with the CR123 batteries so you are better off using the 18650 last about 1 hour 30 min with that battery on hi mode
    ProsBright light Holster works good
    Consshort runtime with the CR123 batteries so you will end up having to use the extension for the 18650 batteries

    Operator Light
    So far I have had no problems with this light. Can you ease on the packaging and lower the price even more? I have a Safariland rail adapter for a 1" light and this light fits it. I was afraid the bezel would be too big and cover the barrel or prevent locking it in place. It does not. Its a simple law enforcement flashlight. It gets bright when you need it to for tactical and dims for reading ID's.

    Bright
    I have several surefire lights, a 6P probably 15yrs. I was skeptical but after receiving this light I was well pleased. Overall quality seems good, low, med, and high settings allow you to conserve battery power and the high setting is an intense, bright white light. For tactical use, the fact it "remembers" the last setting allows you go to High with the 1st push would disorient and "night blind" anyone, allowing you to identify and asses the situation. Add a QD 1" light mount and you would have a nice set up for your rifle with some versatility. The removable clip is Bi directional so you have options for your vest or "go bag". Good addition just to have around the house, or in your kit.
    ProsBattery saving modes, Bi-directional, removable metal, memory of "Last" setting, extra rubber switch cover and O-ring seal

    Great value for a very bright light
    The value seems great. Very bright, multiple light levels, well made, includes batteries and a decent holster. The battery compartment extender is a nice touch for both extended run capacity and the ability to use rechargable batteries if you want.
    ProsPrice and included accessories.
    ConsWould prefer that the light levels were chosen by head position (or something similar) rather than by a quick toggle of the pushbutton. I can see unintentionally changing the light level when doing quick area scans. A lot of flashlights, if not most, are like this so it's not like this is a big deal.

    overall a good price for what you get but hardly duty grade
    I am admittedly rough with my duty gear, so maybe I am just jaded. I have a Pelican 8040 (?) and a Streetlight PolyStinger LED that are built damn near bomb proof. This light is brighter but is not nearly as durable. I think it is better served as a light you keep in your truck, or maybe for a cushy desk job (detective), but as a patrol officer, i think this light would be broken within 6 months of standard duty use. i am satisfied with my purchase for the money and i don't use it for a duty light anyway. i think a good option is to get on eBay and buy the rechargeable batteries/charger for this light so you don't go through 123 batteries, as I would think you would put a dent in your budget. Also i do like the low/med/high/strobe tailcap settings, but again, generally impractical for a patrol light where if you were using it to search for a bad guy and turn your light on for only a fraction of a second (not pushing the tailcap to the "locked" or "unlocked" position), you would find it annoying that you're scrolling through low/med/high/strobe on your search. i think that is a bad choice during a stressful situation.
    Prosprice, brightness, comes with a belt clip and lanyard.
    Consnot built for patrol duty, this is not nearly as durable as a Streamlight, Pelican, or SureFire.

    Great Light!
    This is a great buy for the money. Good feel and balance. The extra battery feature is nice but adds about 1.5" more to the length and honestly, did not provide any substanial increase in brightness. The switch takes a little to get use to but works well and has a solid feel.
    ProsHigh power is really bright. Medium is my working setting.
    Cons1. Would like to have tactical scalloping on the head. 2. Not a fan of the nylon case.

    Yes you do have to cycle through the different modes however you can do that through the momentary feature as well. This way you can quickly cycle to the one you need using only one hand and then click it into action.

    Its a pretty big light to be weapon mounted. That being said I am all for it. I bet you could put it in some scope rings(with quick throws)((google "ARMS scope rings")). If you have a free float forearm rail you can run the lens off the front next to the barrel because the lens is so big. Your going to have to measure(with calipers) the Diameter of the flashlight shaft and find some rings that work for it. you may have to put some combat ready electrical tape in there if the ring(s) is/are to big.

    from CA, of course
    You would need a flashlight ring, such as the GG&G ring, to mount it on a rail. From what I've seen, there is not a pressure pad end cap available, so you would have to manually turn on and off the light. There are other options available on the market for a rail mounted light that would be better. As for the light, it's a well built light, extremely bright and one of two that I use regularly for Security use.

It also has a removable clip, giving you the option to clip it to a pocket. I have partners who carry a similar light on their duty belts with an open holster (no retention).

    can you use the cr123 type batteries with the battery extension, thus holding more batteries?
    5 Answers
    To start with,,I LOVE this light,,,, it's very bright and YES you can use more batteries with the extension. I just now put it in all the configurations to make sure before I answered you. Without the extension tube,,, it holds three (3) CR123A non-rechargeable batteries,,,,,, WITH the extension it holds four (4) CR123A's or two(2) 18650 rechargeable batteries,, which is what I use. Both type are very bright, white light! The 18650's are a little bit more powerful,,, the CR123A's are 3 volts,, the 18650's are 3.7 volts and cause the light to be a little brighter, plus they are rechargeable. But either are very bright!

    I have small 18650 batteries that are 5300mAh with 3.7v li-ion... will they work with this?
    4 Answers
    They SHOULD work. However, I would ensure they are protected cells. There are a number of cheap, poorly constructed 5300mah batts being sold on eBay and elsewhere. Li-ion batteries can be dangerous if not properly cared for and used correctly. Any of the high drain devices (like this light) should be used with protected cells so they don't become overly discharged. If you really want to learn about li-ion batteries and see some comparisons on runtime, check out candlepowerforums.com and do some searches in their battery and light section. For the price, I like this light. Don't ruin it with poor batteries.

    I couldn’t say for sure but if the same diameter and length as the cr123’s I would say yes but also the flashlight draws a lot of current from the batters and it gets very hot, I would watch out for overheating and catching fire if you’re not going to use the appropriate battery made for high current draw.

    The Sony vtc5 18650 is a 3.7v li-ion battery and should work fine in this torch. You'll need the extension on and 2 batteries as the other configuration is for 3 X 123a type batteries.

    Do not feel silly about asking any question, That's how we all learn. The tail cap has two small holes in it. Pass the smaller end of the lanyard through the hole about 1-1/4 inch.. Pass the thicker part of the lanyard through the loop that is protruding out of the tail cap. once that is done and you pull snug the lanyard should be tight and installed to the tail cap. I hope that LA Police Gear customer service has a picture of the lanyard installation they can send you. Regards, and pest of luck. P.S. I do not use the lanyard. Hold on tight..

    Here's what I did: Pinch a sharp crease in the filament portion of the lanyard. Then push the crease through the hole from outside to inside angling slightly from lens toward tailcap. Now, pull enough through to open into a loop, pull remainder of lanyard through loop and tighten gently but snugly. You're done!

    7.5 inches. This flashlight is quite compact, even with the extension installed, considering the blinding power it puts out.

    Does this light (HIL) have a "last mode memory" so it turns on at the last mode/brightness setting that was used? Are the light ratings (lumens), run time's and light range (meters) all correctly rated or are they exaggerated numbers like so many lights are today? What "color" (kelvin) rating is the LED, (some companies, instead of giving a kelvin rating, rate the LED "color" as Warm, which would have similar light color to an incandescent light which has a yellow tint? Cool, which has a very slight blue tint to a more dramatic blue tint (depending on actual kelvin rating) or- Neutral, which would be more white, no yellow or blue tint? Does this light have "momentary" on or also called a "tactical switch"? How does this light compare to the Streamlight HL3 in a side by side comparison, comparing the above as well as other criteria? Last question, Since you can use 3 or with the body extension- 4 CR123A 3v batteries (nominal 3.2v or total of 12.8v total with new batteries) or 2 18650 batteries, (4.2v each- total 8.4v if using the extension included, would it be possible (would it in any way harm the light) to use 3 RCR123 rechargeable batteries (4.2v each- total 12.6v)? THANK YOU!!

    The HIL operation is as follows - Operation: * To operate the HIL flashlight, tighten the head of the flashlight by holding the HILs body and twisting the head counterclockwise until locked *Three tailcap-activated brightness levels and strobe are available, Low-Medium-High-Strobe is the clycle order with each tap of the tailcap *In any of the four levels, fully depress the tailcap switch to lock the HIL into continuous operation at the level selected: Press and release the switch to turn the HIL off. *If the light is turned off after continuous operation and is then reactivated, the HIL will return to the last level used. *When operating at Medium brightness, teh HIL battery level indicator will flicker several times to indicate that about 15 minutes of operation remain at the 200 lumen level: After this period, the HIL will downshift to low (22 lumens) until the batteries are replaced. This flashlight model did not come with a color temperature indicated, so i'm not completely sure on that one. Yes, this flashlight does have the momentary on feature. I don't have a side by side comparison for the HL3, but i can tell you that we had this flashlight made by the same factory that Fenix uses so it should be comparable. As for the RCR123A batteries. We have not factory tested that for these so although it may be possible to use them, it would void the warranty unless we specifically had it tested. So it's not recommended.

    Do you stock/sell the 18650 batteries and charger?
    1 Answers
    Yes we do, the cheaper end of them is located here - http://www.lapolicegear.com/foxf-18650-battery-charger.html <= That will get you one battery and one charger. The more expensive one's would be from Brite Strike or Nitecore and with those you would have to buy the battery by itself and the charger separately - http://www.lapolicegear.com/nitecore-18650-2600mah-battery.html http://www.lapolicegear.com/brite-replace-battery.html http://www.lapolicegear.com/nitecore-ncd2-d2.html Hope that helps!

    The strobe on this light is the same speed as the L1, we tested them side by side so you are looking at the same 20 hertz for the HIL.

    Why are LA police gear flash lights priced significantly less than other 1100 lumens flashlights? Do they come with a warranty?

    We realize that not everyone can pay the higher price points when it comes to gear, so as a company we work hard to cut out middlemen and manufacture quality products that are within reach for most budgets. Regarding the warranty please see below (also found in the product description): Warranty Information: LA Police Gear warrants our products to be free of defects for a lifetime of use. We will repair or replace, at our option, any lighting product that does not work as a result of a manufacturing defect for as long as you own it.

    It should fit in any standard 1" light holder. And as with my 800 lumen operator light, the generic end cap pressure switches work as well.

    This light has a 1" body, that is the same diameter as most "Tactical Lights", such as Surefire, etc. So, Yes, if your mount is for a 1" light, it will work properly. It does not make a difference if the "light holder" is offset or not, no difference if the style is key mod or Weaver / Picatinney, as long as your light mount is compatible (the same mounting style) where you plan to mount the light. Depending on where on the gun you plan to mount the light, it is possible you "may" also need a small rail riser because of the head is larger than the body.

    This flashlight includes a tube extension that allows to convert it to be able to hold (4) CR123A batteries. If you don't mind the extra length from the extension tube, (4) CR123A batteries will be great with this light as it increases the runtime significantly.
