Pros: Bulb Durability, Battery Life, Durability, Brightness
nitecore smartRing Tactical flashlight SRT7 revenger.
this tactical flashlight is overbuilt in every aspect while staying within the middle range of pricing. it performs head and shoulders brighter than some lights 2x its price, yet, people may still gawk at its $100 price tag, and thats not including any power source. With a light this nice, youll probably spend on a rechargeable battery system. (i got the car charger with 2 batteries for $40, again, you can go cheaper) I will start out with the only con. In order for the near 1000 lumen output, you must sacrifice in reflector size. Although its not huge, it is a little on the big size compared to other options out there. (It just barely fits into a magazine well in my gun bag). But i like a little bit of size especially when you can add the recommended option, a tactical bezel glass shatterer. this 3 prong addition can make this a nice weapon as well. The dial ring is the best part about this light. 0-1000 lumens on lightning fast dial control! and trust me, when youre looking for a tool in a darkened garage and you cannot adjust your 300 lumen costco flashlight down, its blinding and annoying. and having to click thru 5 modes of lighting to find the right output is also annoying. being able to adjust light output immediately with a simple twist, is so nice when you have it. If you dont have, you dont know. also, stealth is many times, of utmost importance, and you can give your position away carrying around a blinding light. i suppose you could use the red light so you dont give away position, but you cannot adjust output on the ultraviolet LEDs which also include green and blue for forensics by highlighting blood or for hunting by changing visual polarity when looking thru water or rain. the switch is genius. when you begin to remember the dial lay out, you can dial to your desired mode, then press the button 1/2 way for partial on, or click it fully, for permanent output. Nice for quick "taps" of light for morse code or distance signaling. tail stands. beacon is powerful and more useful than you think. the beam throw distance is more realistically about 100 meters, but thats more than enough for tactical applications, and its a solid beam with a decent amount of flood and a blazingly bright spot. a great light, if the price tag warrants all the bells and whistles you get…
