Adaptability is a part of life for the modern tactical professional, every item must be worth its weight. This compact flashlight can utilize multiple power sources, running on 1 lithium CR123 or 1 AA battery. With a max output of 175 lumens and a strobe option, you will never be in the dark.
LITHIUM CR123 BATTERY PERFORMANCE
AA ALKALINE BATTERY PERFORMANCE
In 2008, Gerber engineered innovation in lighting with Omnivore Technology, Gerber's patent pending technology for variable-battery use. It’s skillfully applied in the Cortex Compact flashlight. With its sleek design, the Cortex Compact functions as a discreet, everyday carry light for tactical professionals, and a backup light for police officers.
HIGHLY ADAPTABLE FOR TACTICAL APPLICATION
Running on a single Lithium CR123 battery or a single AA battery, the Cortex Compact allows the user options given whatever power source is available. When powered by a CR123, the Cortex Compact provides 125 lumens of output, enough light to momentarily blind an aggressor's night-adapted vision. The Cortex Compact also provides a strobe mode for tactical applications, and a low-output mode for navigation. Housed within machined aluminum for strength and durability, and coated black for low visual signature when not in use, this solid 4-inch, 2.1 ounce light clips neatly inside pants pockets for quick access. The Cortex Compact flashlight is built in Portland, Oregon.
Seems to be well built flashlight. but I would rather spend the extra money to get more lumens such as the rechargeable type. Pus, not only do you save on batteries in the long run. You just get a better deal all the way around.
I would like to see more products in the spotlight area. I am boater and looking for a good marine spotlight. No one seems to have what I am looking for.
Surefire is off their rocker charging as much as they do. Maglite is expensive but you get what you pay for. Your product is just as good, if not better for a lower price. I like that gerber is USA made. #1 reason
Last but not least no one has come out with a flashlight that you can dial a number from 1-10 to adjust briteness. This way instead of having just two settings; the user can adjust to how much lighting they need vs battery power. Let me know when I can come work for Gerber. I am unemployed and I work long hours for cheap. LOL
