In a previous post, I went over the EagleTac D25 flashlight series (D25C, D25A, D25LC2, D25A2), which covered four variations of EagleTac’s well-known pocket lights. The difference between that D25 series and this series lies in the upgraded XM-L LEDs and the new tail switch application. By using a CREE XM-L LED, the D25 series lights are now much brighter than their predecessors, which gives the user a great amount of light in a very small body. The tail switch of the Clicky series moves the focus of changing interface from the twist head to the tail switch, making it much easier to use for first time flashlight users. The stainless steel bezel on the D25 Clicky series has been painted to match the color of the rest of the body, which actually gives the light a better look while still giving the same amount of protection to the lens and emitter. All four lights come standard with the IPX-8 waterproof rating and are constructed out of heavy duty aluminum. All in all, the D25 series is a great choice for those that are looking for a reliable EDC pocket light that is very bright along with an easy-to-use interface.
Being well known for their tactical and practical T20C2, the engineers at EagleTac have announced another great light that has an upgraded XM-L U2 and can produce 770 LED (640 ANSI) lumens. Known as the G25C2, this new weapons light has a significant amount of throw and a fair amount of flood thanks to the deep reflector that is textured with a minimal orange peel. Unlike their previous models, the G25C2 has the ability to house tubular extensions, which allows the light to hold more batteries in order to increase runtime (the light can house three CR123s/four CR123′s or two 18650s with the three and four battery extender respectively). There is an option on the site that will allow the user to add an accessory kit, which includes: filters (red,green,blue,yellow,diffuser), and the three and four cell extension bodies.
A few blog posts back, we did a review for the EagleTac D series flashlights and discussed the great features of the series. Now, EagleTac has announced a limited edition run of the D25A and a D25C in a stunning titanium version. The titanium bodies, while adding a great look to the lights, also reduces the weight of the flashlight, and makes it easy to find in darker situations. With the XM-L LED in each light, the D25A and D25C are able to produce a great amount of light and give the user a significant amount of flood. These lights will be available for a short period of time, so make sure to get one while they’re still in stock.
Eagletac is well known amongst the flashlight market for having a great selection of lights that can perform under harsh conditions and are available at a good price. This is especially true for the EagleTac D Series, which is the Every Day Carry (EDC) line that has the highest lumen output in its flashlight category. Not only do the lights perform well, but they have an executive appearance thanks to the stainless steel bezel on the front of each light. The bezel, while sleek and stylish, protects the lens from drops or accidental bumps and will protect it from scratches. These lights can take either AA (D25A, D25A2), CR123 (D25C, D25C2) or 18650 (D25LC2) batteries.
We took a cool light and made it even cooler with the addition of some color. The EagleTac T20C2 is no longer only available in boring black. We have more than a few colors to choose from, so there should be something for just about everyone. The coating is durable and very scratch resistant, so you don’t have to worry about treating the light like its made of glass. Let’s face it, in the flashlight world we see a sea of black. The addition of some color makes these lights stand out from the crowd. We still have a few different colors in stock as of right now, but who knows how long they will last.
The world of high end, high output flashlights can be sort of overwhelming. There are a ton of options which can make it very difficult to choose the right light for you when the time comes. To remedy this problem we do a flashlight comparison series using all of the biggest and brightest tactical flashlights available at that time. Not only do these videos give you a good idea of how well each light performs, it also provides a nice side by side comparison of each beam. There are 3 targets set up at 100, 200, and 300 yards to give you an idea of how far each beam travels. These comparison videos are a great way to get a feel for how all of the technical jargon translates into real world use. Clear your schedule and check out the vids, there are a lot of them!
The EagleTac P20A2 is the light for the people that want very high output with batteries that are easily replaceable.
The P20A2 is functionally the same as the popular P20C2, except for the fact that it utilizes 2 AA cells instead of CR123 lithium batteries. The AA cell is much cheaper and easier to find than the CR123, making it painless to replace when the time comes. The P20A2 uses the CREE XM-L LED which pushes out a max of 524 lumens on high. Output that high is hard to come by in a torch this small, not to mention at a price well under 100 dollars. This is definitely one of the most EDC friendly high output lights out there, all the while being easy on the pocket book. This one is very popular, so get it while you can!
The EagleTac P20C2 MkII XM-L is definitely one of the best values in the flashlight world right now. This P20C2 is also one of the brightest CR123^2 lights available today.
For well under 100 dollars you get the new CREE XM-L LED which pushes out 524 lumens. The light is powered by two CR123 lithium batteries which provide the highest energy density while still maintaining a small size. There isn’t a whole lot to say about the XM-L version of the P20C2. If you see the light in action then there isn’t a lot of convincing needed after that. The XM-L P20C2 is one of the smallest and brightest lights available today, plain and simple.
Check out the video below and prepare to be amazed!
The EagleTac M3C4 is a very high output light that is fit into an incredibly compact body. Since there are many different preferences for output and LED choice, the M3C4 comes in three different variations to suit almost any desire.
The inner workings of all M3C4′s are exactly the same. The difference is the actual head of the flashlight which contains the LED and circuitry. The actual user interface for all three lights is exactly the same also. The highest output version uses triple CREE XM-L LEDs. The mid range version utilizes triple CREE XP-G LEDs. The lowest output version uses a single CREE XM-L LED. Make no mistake, all three versions of the light are extremely bright and have high quality beam patterns.
If you’re looking for a super high output light that gives you choices when it comes to the hardware, beam, and output then the M3C4 is definitely your light!
The EagleTac T20C2 is a combat light with super high output. While its main purpose is being a tactical light, its size and output make it perfect for every day carry as well. In the video below the regular T20C2 as well as the T20C2 S2 version is reviewed.
The higher output version of the T20C2 uses the new CREE XM-L LED which puts out a higher volume of light than previous LEDs. This new LED gives the MkII a max output of 720 lumens on high. The T20C2 S2 uses the smaller S2 LED. While putting out less light overall, the S2 version will have a tighter and brighter hot spot. Both lights utilize the CR123 lithium battery which provides maximum run time while still maintaining a small package. Both versions of the light use the same interface which has three different brightness settings.
It’s difficult to know which version is right for you, so hopefully the video below will help you out.
