LA Police Gear Operator L1 800 Lumens Flashlight

SKU #: LAPG-FL-Operator-L1-Flashlight
MSRP: $59.99

The new LA Police Gear Operator L1 Flashlight brings new meaning to bang for your buck. Your initial reaction to this flashlight might be skepticism because of the insanely low price - but don't doubt the quality and brightness of this flashlight. This thing packs a high mode of a blistering 800 lumens and also has a Medium, Low, and Strobe setting. Now typically such a bright light would not last long at that level, but this light can run for 2.3 hours on its high mode and 70 hours on its low mode. Combine that with the unique "twist to program" capability, and you have an amazing flashlight at an amazing price backed by LAPG, the best in the industry. If that wasn't enough, this flashlight also includes (2) CR123 batteries and a nylon belt/molle holster.

Try it out, we know you'll love it as much as we do!

Totally Predictable Tactical Mode
In tactical situations it is extremely important that an officer know exactly how his light is going to perform before it is activated. To this end, both of the LA Police Gear Operator Flashlights operate exactly the same way. In the “Tactical Mode” there are two outputs, Strobe and High Output. Switching between the two outputs requires only a “tap” of the tail switch. To put either light into the “Tactical Mode” requires that the officer simply tighten the head of the flashlight. The flashlights have been programmed to start in the High output whenever the light is started or switched to the Tactical mode. In a critical situation the officer knows with complete confidence that if he tightens the head of either light, it will start out in the High output when activated. A simple tap of the tail switch changes to the Strobe output continuous beam. Another tap returns to the High output.

Non-Tactical Working Mode
This mode of operation is accessed by loosening the head of either light a few degrees. In this mode the light has three outputs. High, Medium and Low accessed in that order through tail switch taps. When in the Non-Tactical Mode, both lights have a memory that start the light out in the last used output level. When in this mode, tightening the head immediately returns the light to the Tactical Mode - High/Strobe Output.

The LA Police Gear Operator Flashlights have two outputs, High and Medium for normal searching and other investigative work. The Low output is designed to be comfortable for activities like report writing.

    5 stars!
    I waited almost two months for this flashlight, got it today and love it! Flashlight weight is reasonable and the light is unbelievably bright. I use a streamlight stinger 600lumen for duty and this light is definitely brighter! For the money you can't go wrong. I will be ordering more shortly to have as spares!

    Excellent product for all circumstances
    I own two of these flashlights, and recently put in an order for another two to stow away in case of extreme emergency. They are well built, can take a fall easily, the water resistant seal is strong on the butt of the flashlight, and the carrying case and strap are well made. 800 lumens is quite a stunning amount of light, and the strobe feature at night is truly dibilitating -- a good feature under duress. For the price, this is hard to beat!

    Too expensive to feed.
    I've wanted a good durable torch for a while. This fit the bill. When I first received it it got a lot of use. I was under my house in the crawl space and this torch got dropped on concrete, spent time in water, I think i smacked it with a hammer also. And it took it all. And boy was it bright, got a wee bit hot also on extended use. The first weekend I had it I used it for probably around 14 hours and was really happy with it. It sat on my dresser until the next weekend when I had to finish up in the crawl space. A few hours into the work I replaced the batteries, no big deal. This set of Duracell got about 6 hours of use and I was done with what I needed to do. 2 weeks go by and I need and I have little to no light. I got a new set of batteries again. Used the torch for about 20 minutes and it sat again. 3 weeks later I need to use it and it is dead. The battery consumption is not right. Not sure if I remember correctly but it may have been in the manual that the batteries should be removed from the torch if you are not going to use it for like, X amount of days. Kind of defeats a be ready when needed idea if I am remember that correctly. As it stands I'm out the $50 for the torch and then the batteries. Not sure if it was just mine, or if my expectations of battery longevity are wishing too much for this torch, I'm sorry I purchased it.

    Love this flashlight but since replacing the batteries and yes they're the right ones, the flashlight has become unreliable. When on duty the light will work and then not work.

    Monster Torch
    I have had my Operator Flashlight since the end of November, 2015. Of all the flashlights I own, this is my go to torch when I need dependable, blinding illumination. From about 40 feet away, I lit up a friend as he stepped out of his house. He honestly thought I was using a 12v. plug-in spotlight. I feel so confident about this flashlight that I keep it on my night stand, next to my pistol at night as part of my home defense resources. I know there are many fine flashlights on the market today, and a lot that cost many times what the Operator did but I couldn't be more satisfied with this fine piece of equipment.
    ProsGood overall light output. Very bright. Good focused beam pattern.
    ConsNone that I've found.

    The Fenix AR102 and the Surefire XM07 will fit the L1 Flashlight. However, with the Fenix AR102, the flashlight will no longer be waterproof. Also, since the L1 Flashlight and the Fenix AR102/Surefire XM07 were not specifically designed to work with each other, we cannot guarantee that they will work flawlessly together.

    from Arizona
    After looking into it the AR102 does fit but not well. The threads in the AR102 tailcap are very shallow and you have to turn it very hard to make contact with the batteries. For better contact and for the ar102 cap to engage the rear o ring and seal the light take about 150 thousandths off the rear threads of the light body. No more contact issues and waterproof again.

    I purchased the 1000 lumen version- in tactical mode, there is no momentary on feature, I realize. But with firm click to turn the light "on", if initially in the High mode, then I turn it "off", then turn "on" again, it goes into the Strobe mode, rather than staying or restarting in High mode. Is this proper function? I thought that in tactical mode, the light would turn on again in the last-used mode, ie I would want it to turn on again in High mode, not Strobe mode. Thanks- if it is designed to revert to the "next in line mode" upon restart, I may want to return the unit.
    1 Answers
    Yes the light is designed that if you turn it off and back on then it will cycle to the next mode. If you wait just a moment after turning it off to click it again then it will come back on in high mode.

    Focusing capabilities? Size/dimensions?
    4 Answers
    Hi, The L1 is 6 1/16 long and 1 and 1/4 inches wide. I have just bought my second. The first one I purchased was a few years ago, and over Christmas I bought a second. The first one still looks and works great. There is no rotating or sliding bezel which allows you to tighten or focus the beam. It is very durable and bright. With the first one, I was on a boat and an emergency occurred and I had to go into the water off a boat, Salt Water. The light was clipped inside my pocket. It was underwater approximately 45 minutes and remained in the wet pocket for several minutes longer. The light worked when I took it out of my pocket and continues to work today. Looks as good as the day I bought it. It comes with a clip and pouch, and can be warn inside your jeans pocket. Good luck!

    The LAPG L1 800 lumen flashlight is a fixed focus flashlight. However, with 800 lumens this light is extremely powerful and casts a broad beam of very bright light. It's size is slightly larger than a Streamlight of comparable lumens. However, it is a very good size as it uses either CR123 x 2 batteries or a single 18650. I've used both and the lumen output is consistent regardless of which battery is used. The 18650 is my preference since it is rechargeable. This flashlight has good balance in your hand, comes with a very robust retention strap and a versatile holster. Overall, at $49.99 this is a great value, good size and very useful tool for home, car or boat. It makes a great duty flashlight because of its size and broad bright beam. Good value from LAPG yet again!

    I recently mounted my LA Police gear Operator light to my M4 that I use as a Department Patrol rifle. When we conducted our night fire, my light far exceeded anything else on the range. This light has been tough, bright, and I am very pleased. The thumb activated button on the back is recessed and thus protected, so the light doesn't come on while in the case. In my opinion it is an excellent light for mounting on a patrol rifle.

    4 Answers
    The positive ends of both batteries go toward the head. I've never reversed them so I don't know if the reverse polarity will damage the flashlight -- seems unlikely but I really don't know. I'd suggest the simple things to check first. Are both head and tail-cap screwed down completely? Did either spring contact get damaged/bent?

    Both positive ends should be pointed toward the lightbulb. Since you tried both ways, my guess is there is a problem with the batteries.

    Dear Midnight Mountain Biker, I too, own this terrific flashlight and do a lot of trekking. I use the holster which came with the flashlight. I took it to a shoe shop with whom I have been a long term customer. They box-stitched the belt loop just above the snap at no cost. Then I attached a piece of paracord to the lanyard hole at the base of the light from the inside to outside to prevent the knot from accidentally activating the switch. I insert the light lens down. The holster is mounted to molle webbing on the right side of my Eberlestock backpack and the lanyard is attached with a carabiner to the front of my shoulder strap. The light is very accessible and secure. Best wishes on your adventures!

    The holster provided will attach just fine to a duty belt. I use a bianchi accumold 2.25" belt and it would do just fine. With that's said, I think the investment into something better and a little more sturdy would be the best bet. While it appears to be a decent enough nylon holster, I opted to go with the Brite Strike BTL quick cam roto-loc holster off of amazon. Very well priced holster and it holds it great. Much easier access and better quality in my opinion. I did have to adjust the height of the holster but that was a quick 2 min fix. The flashlight itself is great! Considering buying another as a backup.

    The holster, Tony suggested does not work with this flashlight. However it does hold the flashlight very snug and there is no chance of it falling out, the flashlight is too wide for the locking mechanism on the holster to work. Meaning that if someone grabs it on your hip they can easily take it.

    1 Answers
    It's a little longer than the Strion. The strion is about 5.9" and this one is 6.125". I'm assuming that you are not referring to the Strion HPL, which has a bit of a different bezel. The body diameter is a little thicker than the Strion, the Strion has .95" barrel diameter whereas the LAPG one is about an 1". The bezel diameter is close to the same size at 1.25" but strion has the non roll rivets that will bring that up to 1.35" if you include that. So basically it's a little bigger but pretty close.

    Which would perform better 2 RCR123a batteries or 1 18650?
    2 Answers
    The 18650's will make the light brighter due to the higher voltage.
    Customer Service
    on December 12, 2015
    The voltage for 2 RCR 123A batteries is 7.4 volts while the voltage for a 18650 is 3.7 volts. 2 non rechargeable CR123 batteries is 6 volts. Not sure the light can handle the higher voltage of RCR 123A batteries.

    If changing the batteries and tightening everything down doesn't seem to fix it, and you have purchased it within the year, than you most likely received a defective flashlight. Please contact us at with your order number and we'll see about getting that taken care of for you.

    I'm wondering if you guys sell a red filter for the light for night time map reading? Or know if there is a universal one available? Thanks!
    2 Answers
    I test fitted this for a surefire filter - It's a really tight fit, and does not secure the way it was meant to with our light. I was able to get the filter onto our flashlight with a bit of a struggle, and it caused the filter to flare a bit on the sides, but it did work. Definitely not ideal and would probably break after putting it on and off a few times. I unfortunately couldn't find anything similar as far as a universal filter for this.

    I have one of these flashlights & I am trying to find this out myself. I love this flashlight, have already turned it into a weapon light on my AR with a pressure switch, & plan on purchasing another one. LAPG sells 2 covers that should work for it. They are meant to go over lights with 1.25" diameter bezels. The first one is a red filter that you were asking about: The second one is a less expensive blue filter option: Hope this helps...

    Which 18650 rechargeable battery can this flashlight use??
    1 Answers
    We recommend using the Nitecore 18650 battery. There are 2 different versions of that, one of them lasts longer than the other and should produce better power, but they both should work fine. You may lose some lumens when using a rechargeable due to them not having the same output as a standard CR123.

    this would depend on the type of thigh rig holster that is being used. if it is a molle style platform then any molle pouch that fits our light could attach to your thigh rig. if it is a safariland or blackhawk style thigh rig though then that would narrow down the options quite a bit.

    The V70 will fit this light just fine and the BI-7311 for the stinger model lights will be able to accommodate the head of this light as well but the holster is a bit to long for the light so there would be some free space at the bottom of the holster. as well our light is a bit shorter then the 7060 and not as big.

A lot of lights start out at a certain brightness but the output lowers as the batteries are depleted. Additionally, will they run at medium brightness if there isn't enough power to get to high?
    1 Answers
    yes this item does have a digitally regulated output so it will keep the full power for as long as it can. once the batteries have depleted to a certain point thought the light will automatically drop the power down to the next available power setting it is able to operate at.
