Need a bright, compact flashlight as a back-up or to carry off duty? Take a look at the Brite-Strike EPLI flashlight. The EPLI is a refined lighting tool that can easily blend in with any off-duty carry. However, Brite-Strike claims it is rugged enough for tactical operations.
EPLI stands for Executive Precision Lighting Instrument. Frankly it looks like it should be at home in the boardroom. However, don’t let it’s polished look fool you. This compact brute still throws 160 lumens and includes a strobe mode. In the constant-on, high power mode, the flashlight’s 2 AAA batteries will run the EPLI for about 1.5 hours.
MSRP is $80, but you’ll pay less than that at Amazon.
Brite-Strike Technologies® is the established innovator of tactical lighting solutions for police, military and civilian operators. New for 2012, Brite-Strike announces their slim and sleek EPLI™ (Executive Precision Lighting Instrument) light for everyday use. The EPLI™ is suitable for tactical operations or the executive board meeting.
With a polished stainless steel and brass Bezel, the EPLI is made with the highest quality materials, similar to those used in other tactical lights Brite-Strike builds for law enforcement and military. This slim and sleek, waterproof tactical light is made from high grade aircraft aluminum with a graphite anodized finish. It uses the latest Cree high power LED light with a high efficiency DC/DC boost electronic circuit for regulated light output and maximum power delivery. The EPLI comes with High, Low, and Strobe modes where the highest setting can produce up to 160 lumens of brilliant, flawless white light. The flashlight also features a highly polished steel reflector, which is more narrow and deep than other lights ensuring an intense narrow beam of light. The low 10 lumen setting is ideal for map reading, getting in and out of a treestand or reading notes in a dimly lit meeting room, while the highly disorienting 160 lumen high strobe mode is perfect for distracting an attacker or as a distress beacon.
The EPLI is powered by two AAA batteries. To turn it on, users can either fully click the tail switch or use the “momentary” feature by pressing the switch halfway to turn it on for a second or two. Repeatedly pressing the button halfway will switch the light from High to Low to Strobe. If the flashlight is in constant on mode, it will last up to 1.5 hours on high, six hours on low and two hours on strobe.
This is the perfect carry light; with an overall length of 5.125 inches, it will fit in a utility belt, pant or a shirt pocket. The clip was designed for easy and quick removal.
