Night Ops and Night Oops...
(click on the link) - to read more about it... but basically:-
Illumination at 90+ lumens... 'a light unto thy path' forms the touchstone of the Gladius Night-Ops tactical light.
The LED (light emitting diod) light, powered by 2 CR123A batteries with a runtime of 90 minutes and 90+ lumens at full power, and 400+ hours at the lowest setting with .8 lumens. Waterproof to 50 meters (divers take note), low battery indication, and auto temp. control.
But THAT's not the highlight of it... the Gladius is equipped with the following modes:
3. Constant ON/Adjustable - User Programmable
4. Lock Out
The STROBE function is what caught me... this is resounding the FBI's new sweeping technique using a light source which strobes so as to disorientate the perpetrator, quite useful in night tactical engagement.
For civilian application, I reckon that this baby will deter perps to be and at 90+ lumens, would blind a person temporarily, gaining the precious seconds with which to haste your escape.... now this message goes to ladies, especially those walking alone in a dark and lonely place (try to avoid)... but to the guys, I reckon that this toy would make a good compliment to any notion of "coolness"... plus, made out of anodized aluminium, this baby could take a lot of punishment, including assaulting or jabbing your opponent with it... I reckon...
