THREE New Nitecore Headlamps! The HA20, HC30, and T360

 Take Your Pick Among Three Impressive New Nitecore Headlamps!

The HA20 stands out among the headlamp pack for several reasons. It weighs in at just over two ounces without batteries, and is capable of reaching 300 lumens with the added feature of constant red light or flash. Red light is useful when you want illumination without effecting night-adjusted vision or wildlife. 100 degree beam illumination allows you to see left and right, while the 120 yard beam throw allows you to see past an entire football field. 90 degree light swivel takes care of seeing above and below. In addition to five brightness settings, the headlamp can emit SOS, strobe, and beacon. This one is also great due to its ability to run on AA batteries. You'll always find your power source no matter where your travels take you. It's hard to fit everything this wonderful light has to offer in one paragraph! Visit to find out more.

The HC30 is essentially a headlamp/flashlight hybrid, since the light can be taken off of the headband for hand or pocket carry! It's the best of both worlds in one compact, light as a feather design. The light blasts an impressive 1000 lumens across five outputs, in addition to SOS, strobe, and beacon. Since the light is detachable, it can swivel as far upwards or downwards as you so desire it to, and its 100 degree beam width reaches far to your right and left.

The T360 is unique in that it is extremely compact. 45 lumens of brightness across three brightness outputs are ready to be called upon for anything you wish, for everything from walking to camping to reading. Swivel it 360 degrees or detach it from the headband to clip on your hat, pocket, wrist, shirt, or even hang around your pet's neck. Perhaps best of all, the light is rechargeable via USB port so you will never have to worry about having constant backup batteries.

If you need more information or would liked to see additional specs or purchase any of these great lights, they are all available on! They are sure to go fast so get yours now!

The New Rechargeable Eagletac GX30L2DR- Perfect For Camping

The Unique GX30L2DR  Features a Spotlight Beam, Diffuser Beam, or Both at Once!
Take a gander at the new Eagletac GX30L2DR. It's quite a sight to behold, as it looks so different from other high-powered flashlights. Its translucent diffuser head softens the light it emits and allows for five brightness outputs to pass through. But if you don't want a diffused light, have no fear. The GX30L2DR has the ability to change into a focused spotlight, or diffused AND focused at once, both also with five brightness levels, by simply clicking the white switch while holding down the black on the side of the light.

Perfect For Camping
Take the GX30L2DR's ability to stand up vertically and pair that with its diffuser head that softens and spreads out typically harsh light, and you have the perfect little light to take on your camping trip
to use as a makeshift lantern. Its alluring glow offers sufficient light to place on the floor of your tent, while the five brightness levels allow you to pick the appropriate output for your needs. You might not want the full, blinding 1920 lumens, but perhaps the second lowest output of 165 lumens will be just enough to tell ghost stories by.

More Great Features of The GX30L2DR
Don't let the fact that this light is brilliant for camping stop you from using it for every outdoor activity. I'd wager that pretty much every tent is longer than 578 yards, which is how far a beam throw you're gonna get out of the GX30L2DR! I can merely suggest more uses for this light, as the sky is the limit for what you can use it for. Take it hiking, searching, walking, fishing, use it for surveillance, work, reading, finding your way around a dark house, or self defense. I could go on all day! Use your imagination and let us know what you come up with! 

The Rechargeable Light that Just Keeps Ticking
Your GX30L2DR is conveniently rechargeable via any electrical wall socket or car adapter. The manufacturer box includes a car adapter to charge your EAGTAC 7.4V li-ion battery pack. Longhorn Tactical also provides you with a wall charger for maximum convenience. Charge your battery to 80% capacity in just two hours! This light will certainly go fast, so get it while it's hot from your friends at

The S1 Baton- Olight's Smallest Ever Side-Switch LED Search Light

Olight S1 Baton- To Be Taken 
Anywhere with Ease
The illumination experts at Olight bring you the smallest side-switch LED light that they have released to date. This light is so tiny as to fit in the palm of your hand, with no traces of itself when you wrap your fingers around it. Its one ounce weight means it fits comfortably anywhere and is never a nuisance.

The Light Packs a More Powerful Punch Than Lights Ten Times Its Size
There's no way you will get the same level of performance that you do out of the S1 from any household flashlight. You won't believe your eyes to see a maximum brightness of 500 lumens emitting from a light smaller than the size of your finger! Of course, you wouldn't want to look directly into its beam, which reaches an incredible 120 yards. If you're not in need of a blindingly powerful beam, but require something a little more manageable, shall we say, the S1 hears you loud and clear. Toggle down to as low as .5 lumens in Moonlight Mode and go crazy shining it anywhere and everywhere.

Stylish Yet Functional
You haven't seen this attractive of a flashlight in a long time. Cerulean blue accents around the light's head and side-switch make the light pop and offer something more than just boring old black! A magnetic tail cap allows the light to either stand up vertically on flat surfaces, or attach to any magnetic surface with ease. A durable pocket clip attached to the light's exterior enables it to hang from a pocket, waistband, belt, etc. with no fear of slipping. Toggle through all settings of the light with the simplicity of a single side button, and power it with a single CR123A battery, cheap and also available for purchase on our website,

Ideal For Any Activity- Just Use Your Imagination!
Are you a hiker? Like camping? Hunting? Exploring? Caving? Searching? Reading even? Then by all means let the S1 work for you. There are no limits placed on the scenarios of which to use the S1, so just carry it everywhere and take comfort in the fact that it is in your pocket or bag when you require any source of light. There's really no reason to not have an S1, since it is so tiny and unobtrusive. Why take the chance of not having illumination when you need it? Best of all, you will have zero regret associated with your purchase with Olight's included 5 year warranty, serviced in the United States by Longhorn Tactical. 

New Upgrade to Fenix TK75- the TK75 2015 Edition!

Newly Upgraded Fenix TK75!
It's time to replace your previous version of the Fenix TK75 search light with this higher-powered
and more dependable upgrade. Boasting 1100 more lumens than its predecessor, up from 2900 to a blinding 4000, illuminate even more of your surroundings with this impressive light. The throw of the beam distance has improved as well, with the capability of reaching 710 yards, up from 660. This light also comes equipped with FOUR LED bulbs, versus the measly three of its previous version. Also included with the 2015 edition for the first time is a handy shoulder strap for easy access and portability. Just sling it over your shoulder and light it up wherever you go.

Everything You Want From a
Flashlight, Plus Some 
We've already established that the TK75's 4000 lumens are staggeringly bright, but the TK75 has three additional brightness outputs in addition to turbo: low, mid, and high. But that's not all. How many household flashlights do you know that also offer strobe and SOS functions? You think you will never need an SOS signal until you do. Rest easy with the TK75 and know it can get you out of a jam if necessary. Neither rain nor snow can deter this durable light, which meets IPX-8 standards, meaning it is submersible in 2 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.

Battery and Voltage Information
One of the coolest features of the TK75 is its battery voltage indicator. You will always know how much power your light has left when you double click the master switch. All four LED bulbs illuminated slightly means you are good to go. Less than that means your batteries are not at full capacity, and should perhaps be charged soon. The TK75 conveniently runs on two battery types, 18650 or CR123A.

Easy and Fun to Operate- You're Gonna Love This Light 
The TK75 comes equipped with a dual button switch which means all its illumination outputs and special functions are no more than a couple clicks away. Your light turns on when the mode switch on the right is compressed for .5 seconds. Cycle through the four brightness levels by pressing the same button while the light is on. Need immediate turbo? Simply press the Function Switch button on the left when your light is on it will immediately illuminate at its highest level. Compress this button for .5 seconds when your light is on to enter into strobe mode. But make sure the TK75 is not pointed directly in anyone's eye-line, because the powerfully blinding light will give them a surprise!

The MT10A also boasts strobe, SOS, and search beacon functions.

Its compact size of 4.25 inches and 2.14 ounces can be stowed anywhere.

 Never Fear Running out of Power with the MT10A's Ability to Run on Standard AA Batteries
One very exciting specification of note about the MT10A is its compatibility with any AA battery, which can be found at nearly every corner store around the world. Never fear running out of power; simply pop in another AA battery. If you want optimal performance from your light via a rechargeable battery, have no fear. The MT10A can also run on IMR14500 batteries. You can find these, as well as chargers for them on our site,

Dual Button Step-Up/Step-Down Switch AND Tactical Tail Cap Switch
Turn your light on and off conveniently with a tail cap switch, and alternate among Ultra-Low, Low, Mid, High, Turbo, and red light with the dual switches on the side of the light. The tactical switch on the bottom also provides a momentary-on function when compressed halfway, so you don't have to fumble to turn the light off when you require immediate darkness. Need immediate turbo light? Simply press the step-up switch in conjunction with the tail cap switch. Immediate red light is a piece of cake as well. Hold down the step-down switch in conjunction with the tail cap switch. For the special modes of strobe, SOS, and the location beacon, hold the two side-switches down together to alternate among special modes to select one. Then when you're done simply push one of the step switches to exit to the last brightness used.

A look at Nitecore TUBE Rechargeable LED keychain light

First Impression:
Looking at this tiny creation, you would never think the Nitecore TUBE Rechargeable light has such power and illumination. But don't judge a book by its cover they say and they are correct. I am amazed at how bright and long lasting the TUBE really is. The convenience of having it in hands reach on my keychain for household and emergency use is comforting. (Think keyhole light or roadside assistance at night) Never having to replace a battery is a major plus!

Power in a small package
TUBE is the world's lightest rechargeable flashlight weighing in at only 0.34 oz and measuring 2.2 x 0.83 inches. 1-45 lumens LED output gives a flawless high performing wide beam.

What it's made of
The TUBE is made up of strong Polycarbonate casing making it durable enough to withstand high impact. Think about it; polycarbonate is what helmets and masks are made of. This mini is made to last and is available in five great colors.  Its stainless steel key ring connector can withstand 77lbs! Not sure when that will come in handy but its good to know unbeatable materials and quality are used and will not fail when you need it most.

Shine bright
The TUBE has a high quality LED bulb with multiple modes that can easily be selected with a touch of your fingertip. Its standard modes are low(1 lumen) and high(45 lumens).  TUBE also comes with Momentary Illumination and Infinitely Variable Brightness(IVB).  Allowing me to choose between 1-45 Lumens in IVB mode is by far my favorite!

Immortality is just a plug away
TUBE uses an integrated high efficiency Li-ion rechargeable battery that provides a maximum runtime of approximately 48 hours per charge. A micro-usb charging port makes it a breeze to multi-use the charging cable from your other electronic devices such as a cell phone or tablet. ('Cuz who really has the memory to lug around multiple chargers... Right?!).  Best of all; TUBE quickly charges in about an hour and you don't have to worry about over-charging since it has a intelligent protective circuit.

Latest Olight Product Release - 3600mAh 18650 Rechargeable Battery

Higher Capacity Battery from Olight

Olight as a high quality LED flashlight manufacturer has been around for over ten years. However, they entered the rechargeable battery market only in the past couple of days. Despite their relatively short history, the batteries are receiving great reviews from customers.

Are All 18650 Batteries the Same?

If the flashlight light says it supports 18650 battery, then the battery will work for my flashlight, right? Well, not exactly. The performance, functionality and quality actually varies significantly among different brands and models. In the next few sections we will examine how you decipher the specifications of each battery, and how it impacts the functionality of your flashlight.

Decipher Battery Specification

Capacity (mAh)

Capacity of a battery tells you how much battery juice is stored in the battery. Typically it is measured in the unit of mAh. In general, the higher the number, the longer the device will last. Often, customers ask if higher capacity batteries boost the brightness of their flashlight. The answer is no, but a higher capacity battery makes the flashlight run for a longer time after the charge.

Charging Cycle

Every object has its life span, and a rechargeable battery is no different. After each charge, the capacity of the battery diminishes a bit. High quality rechargeable batteries like Olight 18650 retain their performance, even after many charges, while low quality rechargeable batteries start to lose their capacity quickly after 10 to 20 charges. The specification here tells you you can recharge the battery 500 times while still retaining 90% capacity; not too shabby.

Protect Your Flashlight With A Protected Battery

A protected battery prevents over-discharge or overcharge. When a flashlight drains your battery excessively, the battery and flashlight will become overheated, which may shorten your battery lifespan. In a worse scenario, this may even damage your flashlight. So when you buy a battery, you always want to buy a protected battery.

Should I Buy the Same Brand of Battery for my Flashlight?

The short answer is no. When a device uses an AA battery, you can just put an AA battery inside and it works like a charm. This is because the type of battery standardizes its voltage, size, and shape.
Sometimes the benefits of buying the same brand depends. A 18650 battery situation is a bit more complex. Some 18650 batteries have a flat top as shown at left. Most flashlights require button top batteries to ensure the best contact.To make the answer even longer, the height of the button top is slightly different. To ensure the best performance, we do recommend the same brand 18650 battery for your favorite flashlight for the best compatibility and reliability.

Should I Buy the Highest Capacity Battery Available?

While the higher capacity batteries do deliver longer running times per charge, they do tend to be more pricy than lower capacity batteries. At the end of the day, it is a trade off. Therefore we do stock multiple levels of 18650 batteries.
2600mAh Olight 18650
3400mAh Olight 18650
3600mAh Olight 18650
