DALLAS, TX — Selected Nightstick flashlights are now available with significantly higher brightness due to an internal upgrade to a new series of CREE LED emitters.
As of now, the compact Nightstick TAC-360XL Xtreme Lumens Metal Tactical Flashlight produces 500 lumens (predecessor models produced 350 lumens) while maintaining a 1.5-hour runtime from 2 CR 123 lithium batteries (included). Its tight and narrow beam delivers a whopping 150-meter of usable light (over 492 feet) from this boosted brightness.
Similarly, a CREE XL L2 emitter upgrade for the Nightstick TAC-460XL Xtreme Lumens Rechargeable Metal Tactical Flashlight brings its light engine up to 800 lumens (predecessor models produced 525 lumens). Although it is now 50 percent brighter than before, the increased efficiency still allows this flashlight to retain the same 2-hour runtime as its predecessor. The TAC-460XL boasts a beam distance rated at 205 meters (over 672 feet) that is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery (included).
The TAC-460XL tactical flashlight also comes nicely equipped with a charger, both AC & DC power supplies and a CR-123 Battery Carrier which provides the ability to run from a pair of CR-123 batteries (not included) as a back-up to the lithium-ion rechargeable battery.
Both upgraded tactical flashlight model housings and tail-caps are made from aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum with a Type III hard anodized finish maximizing durability. These two models uniquely pair their respective CREE LED emitters with a high-efficiency deep parabolic reflector to optimize beam distance and to deliver exceptional performance, while maintaining a water rating of IP-X7 waterproof.
