Rugged, managable, multi filter.. i mean it works perfect for me... 40 lumens... clearly not the brightest... but for the size and the versatility its worth it.
Perfect for what it is intended for:
* Back up light with low output to preserve NVIS.
* Runs on the same cells as my Eotechs (a plus)
* Can be operated with one hand with practice - perfect practice makes perfect
* Size is ideal for the hand and the job. Can hold it in your mouth easily as well, or clip it to gear for a longer job.
* Take several sets of back up batteries and use it for its purpose - a back-up light - quick checks and mini emergencies.
* Goes great with the kit.
Issued this light, and will not use it. Cool it has the IR option but the run time, and the lumens is a joke. Shop around before you buy this. I gave it two stars for the different light options, but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
this flashlight broke the first day not bright at all
Kirk to answer your question it takes camera batteries, those 123 cells, its kinda picky though. i bought some from Radio shack that didnt work (CR123 cells), but then i bought some duracell 123s, thats what the batteries say on them, can find them any where they sell batteries. Those work just fine
What kind of batteries doea it take?
SEEMS LEGIT SKUDDER
I am a firm believer that the best 'tactical flashlights' are made by a very well known California-based company. HOWEVER, this Gerber light is a GREAT piece of kit and it proved itself in high-risk enviroments. No jams, no NDs, no breaking. Good job Gerb
