As a child didn’t you always want to get your hands on a flash light. It didn’t even have to be a very good one. It was fun to get under the covers and turn it on and just look at the light. You really didn’t have to be looking at anything. Then you would let your imagination run wild and enter the world of pretend. Whenever anyone wanted to know what to get a hard to buy for child something for Christmas, I always remarked, “you can’t go wrong with a flashlight”. Later on in life, you noticed the great flashlights carried by Scully and Moulder on the Xfiles. They had the best distance and intensity of any flash light seen before, and I think in every episode they used these flash lights.
The mini Tac FlashLight is only 2.9 inches long, uses 4 AG13 batteries. It has a bright LED light. One of the largest flashlights uses 6 D cell batteries. This light goes from a spotlight to flooding the area with light. There are other flashlights that fall in between and offer you a choice of 2 D cell styles. No matter what size or how many batteries when you are counting on a flashlight doing its job, you need the one that will fulfill the duties and application for that particular assignment.
The headlamp style flashlight can be adaptable to many different enforcement situations. It can leave you hands free to concentrate on the encounter at hand. Headlamps offer the choice to be worn over a helmet, as a stand alone, can be worn over a cap and can be clipped to a helmet or cap without the banding straps. One particular style of headlamp also offers a rear intermittent blinking light with a range of one half a mile. The headlamps can be adjusted for map reading, following dark trails, when hands free duties are required, in tight places where you are using your hands and many other applications for dark conditions.
The Energizer Night Strike FlashLight is unique in the fact that is has five different colored lenses. The white, red, blue and green can be switched from high, medium or low easily. The ultraviolet light is constant. For easy field loading the batteries always go in tip first. This particular flash light comes with a belt clip, can stand upright alone, is waterproof, able to withstand a 10 foot drop and runs for 5 hours on lithium batteries. What great features on flashlights! So many different features in a flashlight that weighs 5.7 ounces (without batteries – 2 AA Lithium) and is only 5.5 inches by 2.2 inches. Searching for just the right flash light and going over the features of each will allow you to make a decision based on just the needs you have for your enforcement duties or in extreme conditions.
