LA Police Gear Operator EDC 330 Lumens Flashlight

SKU #: LAPG-FL-Operator-EDC
MSRP: $39.99

Continuing off of the enormous success of the LA Police Gear Operator L1 and Operator L2 Flashlights, the Operator EDC brings that same extreme bang for your buck value to a single cell flashlight. Once again, we have shattered expectations for not only how far your dollar will go, but also for how bright and tough a small single cell flashlight can be. Featuring a momentary switch that can switch between 4 modes (High, Medium, Low, and Strobe), this light packs 330 lumens of light when using a CR123A battery. However, should you use a 3.7V RCR123A battery (like the Nitecore RCR123A), the output increases dramatically to 560 lumens! The light works great with either battery, so you are in control of what output your light will have.

The Operator EDC Flashlight comes with a CR123A battery, pocket clip, lanyard, and spare O-rings. This light is sized perfectly for your pants pocket or cargo pocket, a small pouch, to throw in a bag, keep in your desk or car or truck, or anywhere else you can think! Its combination of amazing brightness and compact size will leave you saying the first time you turn it on - "How is a light this small so bright?!"


  • High Output: 330 Lumens/50 minutes (560 Lumens/TBD for RCR123A Battery)
  • Medium Output: 170 Lumens/1.5 hours (260 Lumens/TBD for RCR123A Battery)
  • Low Output: 55 Lumens/10 hours (28 Lumens/TBD for RCR123A Battery)
  • Beam Distance: 85m (114m for RCR123A Battery)
  • Switch: Tailcap Switch
  • Size: 93mm x 22.5mm (head diameter 34mm)
  • Weight: 51g (without battery)
  • Modes: High-Med-Low-Strobe
  • Batteries: Includes (1) CR123A Battery. Also functions with RCR123A battery (not included, also see higher outputs above).
  • ANSI FL-1 Rated
  • Waterproof: IPX-8, 2 Meters for 30 Min

    Bought two of these during the 4 July sale, but have used this light for a few years. I gave one to each of my kids and have them stashed around the house. It's also my EDC light. Value and performance are great. Also, want to add I've been a customer for LAPG for a few years and they are one of my favorite online businesses!!!

    No Tactical Mode Button
    I've owned a discontinued TerraLUX TT-1 Model #T1TE00720 Mini. The LAPG model seems to be the expect same Mini. However, the LAPG Mini does not have a Tactical Mode button separate as did the TerraLUX. Both Mini's are almost identical in fit / function. I wouldn't doubt it's the same TerraLUX manufacturer who slapped on an LAPG Logo on it. Great value, I'll pick one up as I absolutely love my TerraLUX. However, I wouldn't carry it in CCW situations because of the missing Tactical Mode button. LAPG shouldn't consider adding the Tactical Mode Button / setting function.

    I still agree with my initial review as for physical durability, BUT The light drops out of high mode to a lower setting. It doesn't matter if it has a new battery installed. I can change it back to high and it will stay there for a minute or so then drop back down to a lower setting.
    ProsTough, handy
    ConsWon't stay on high.

    LA Police Gear EDC Light
    Bought this light last year, great service from LAPG..The overall construction of this light is great, very durable for its price point. But as an everyday EDC, tactical light, especially for the CCW or off duty operator, it falls way short. It doesn't mirror the L1 and L2 Operator as it does not have a tactical mode. You must cycle through each press of the light from high to lower, to strobe. So in a stressful situation, you don't know which level of light you are getting. The light controls you and not the other way around. The tactical application of light means you know what level of light you are deploying in a stress encounter..Make this light with the SAME controls as the Operator L1 and L2, and then you will have the proper personal defense light in the smallest package...
    ProsGood, sturdy, overall construction for a small flashlight.
    ConsDoes not mirror the same operation as the Operator L1 and L2. Cannot recommend this small light for CCW or off duty personnel as it does not have a dedicated tactical mode for low light encounters...

    The flashlight is the best bang for the buck
    There are several things that are better when they are cheaper. Flashlights are not one of them... just look at the "Brightest Flashlight in the World" the shadowhawk or Bell and Howell Tac-Light. They are A. Lying about how durable they are and how bright they are and B. aren't really that tactical. However for $5 dollars more you can fer a real tactical flashlight, the LA Police Gear Operator EDC flashlight. This flashlight is great at only $30 and better yet is compatible with RCR-123A batteries and it has four modes. I have been using this flashlight for a few weeks now and it is great. I have even done a review on YouTube(content created by myself and does not contain copyrighted information): . I also loved it when I ran into someone else who had the same flashlight and shows the same support for LA Police Gear that I do.

    Is the body designed to be capable of mounting to a AR15?
    6 Answers
    Hi. I haven't tried this myself, but it seems like a good idea and totally do-able. I have seem light mounts for rifles that attach to the picatinny rail and with an adjustable clamp for a light, and this seems like it would work. I would detach the belt clip and try the light onto the mount before purchasing.
    on July 14, 2017
    from San Jose, CA
    The light is nice and small for back up or UC work. It would require a universal light mount capable of 3/4in diameter (size of the light) in order to mount it on a gun. It may not be practical for that purpose.
    on July 14, 2017
    from San Jose CA
    The body is almost exactly the same diameter of the L1 and L2 Operator lights (I own all 3). If the mount fits a standard 123A battery diameter, I don't see why not. Of the three, I'd mount the L1 Operator.

    I tried to mount the 330 lumen LAPG light using a VTAC mount. It was too slim to fit securely in the mount. With the mount tightened the light could be pushed forward and/or twisted without much effort. The mounts are for lights with a 1.0" barrel diameter and also come with an insert for lights with 0.8 barrel diameters. I have mounted two of the 730 lumens LAPG lights using the same VTAC mounts. They fit securely in the mounts. They are slightly thicker - barely enough to tell holding the lights in my hand but enough to fit snugly in the mount.
    on July 14, 2017
    from El Cerrito, CA
    With the proper mount, yes it could be mounted on a rail. For example the Magpul clamp style light mount would work just fine.
    on July 14, 2017
    from Texas
    There are many aftermarket mounts that might work but the light is not designed for that purpose. The clip comes off, so that is not a problem. The aftermarket mount would need to be one that is adjustable. The light body is just shy of an inch in diameter and the knurled area is the widest and probably over an inch. This is a GREAT pocket light. Best value I've seen. I have carried one every day for over a year. I bought two as gifts. But it is non-standard for a rail light in size and shape. For the time and effort to find a matching mount, you could probably pay for a purpose built weapon light. If you are REALLY committed to scouring the earth and internet for hours and climb any mountain to save $50, I'd suggest taking it to a large gun show and checking the accessories area.

    Yes it has a memory just as you described. It will cycle through if you click it on/off within 1 second or you can tap through the cycle. So if you leave it on medium the memory will turn it back on medium as long as you don't click it within 1 second.

    The Nominal Voltage of this light are recommended as follows depending on what battery you use - Non-rechargeable - CR123A - 3.0V <= Recommended Rechargeable Battery (Li-ion) - RCR123A*Protected - 3.7V <= Recommended Rechargeable Battery (Li-ion) - RCR123A*Protected - 3.0V <= Useable Rechargeable Battery (LiFePO4) - RCR123A*Protected - 3.2V <=Useable Warning: When using rechargeable batteries, use ONLY batteries with built-in protection circuits that prevent over charging or over discharging. Use of unprotected cells could result in damage to the battery due to over discharging and/or damage to the flashlight. Never use batteries with damaged outer wrappers, contact points or those exposed to extreme temperature or impact. All of the above battery types are powerful cells designed for commercial applications and must be treated with caution and handled with care. Use only quality batteries with built-in circuit protection. They will reduce the risk of combustion or explosion. Cell damage or short circuiting are potential risks the user assumes.

    it is possible that the battery is starting to die on the light because once the battery cell does start to go dead the light will automatically jump the power down to a low level to indicate that the battery is starting to die. if you have replaced the battery though and the light still does seem to have the same issue please contact us at 866-793-1911

    This light does have a momentary switch and a click switch so you can lightly press to activate the light or fully press for continues power. as well the light does have a a memory function so if you turn the light off in low power than that is what the light would revert to when turning back on.
