5.11 Tactical Light for Life LED Flashlight 270 Max Lumens
5.11 tactical products introduces a “light for life.” The LED bulbs never burn out and the recharging system is likewise eternal. The light is bright- very bright, and it can be recharged in 90 seconds! This is a great idea.
Here is the information from 5.11:
5.11 Tactical has entered into a partnership with IVUS Energy Innovations, the makers of Flashpoint Power Technology, to bring you a flashlight that will revolutionize the portable lighting category and be true to our brand and our customers. The 5.11 Tactical UC3.400 LED Flashlight provides the longest uptime, the fastest recharge on the market, it is environmentally friendly, and you will never need to replace your flashlight. Order yours today!
In only 90 seconds, the 5.11 Tactical UC3.400 Flashlight will go from dead flat to a full charge. This quick recharge allows the light to always be ready. No need to carry multiple flashlights, purchase multiple chargers, or have to remember to charge your light after a long shift. In just 90 seconds, your 5.11 Tactical Light for Life UC3.400 will be fully charged and ready to produce another 120 minutes of light. Whereas most flashlights begin to lose strength after you initially turn them on, the Light for Life last for 60 minutes at 90 lumens, cycling down to 25 lumens for 30 minutes and finally 15 lumens for 30 minutes. This keeps you safe in the toughest of conditions.
Unlike traditional rechargeable battery systems that develop memory or degrade (holding less and less charge after each use) and have a life expectancy of 500 – 1000 charge/discharge cycles, the Flashpoint Power Technology system is rated for 50,000 charge/discharge cycles with virtually no degradation. That’s a charge a day for more than 135 years! Through 50,000 cycles, our testing shows that the Flashpoint system will still retain 96% of its peak capacity. Powered by 3 LED’s rated for more than 50,000 hours (that’s 40 hours a week, for more than 24 years) means that there is nothing to replace. The Light for Life can supply your lighting needs throughout your career, and still be handed down to your children and their children.
The 5.11 Light For Life comes with a limited lifetime warranty and its internal components are rated for a life of over 50,000 cycles. That adds up to more than 130 years if you use and recharge the light once a day! The flashlight’s body is made from a rugged and durable polymer that is impact, abrasion and water resistant to stand up to the intense duty we know you’ll put it through.
