High-Quality Lights – The Modlite OKW

A high-quality tactical flashlight is an ideal tool for low-light target acquisition. It can be used together with a firearm to enable aid low-light target identification. This, in turn, will allow the soldier, marksman, or law enforcement officer to aim a weapon and simultaneously illuminate the target as well.   

The Basic Characteristics of a High-Quality Flashlight

These flashlights have been designed keeping the true professional in mind. Military personnel, law enforcement officers, and security officers have to face sudden danger and need to use a flashlight alongside a firearm.

Such flashlights also make great accessories to a home defense weapon. If there is a home invasion, you have to be absolutely sure of the target since your loved ones are also around. 

You can also mount a high-end tactical flashlight onto your weapon. However, it is not necessary to use such a flashlight with a firearm or any other weapon. They can be used on a standalone basis too and make great accessories in a bug-out kit or a camping bag.

A top-quality flashlight is an extremely powerful torch that delivers blinding light as and when required. It is a very tough and rugged piece of equipment.

The Modlite OKW Flashlight: Handheld 18350 Package

The Modlite 18350 is a small package that packs a formidable punch. It contains the ultra-high performance OKW-light head, tail cap with mil-spec hard anodizing, and its own 18350 handheld body. The package also contains a  KeepPower battery rated 1200mAh as well as an XTAR MC2 quick charger.

While its total output in lumen terms is comparable to some of the top brands in its class. However, in terms of the throw, it is in a class of its own. In fact, it can allow Positive ID (PID) at over three times the distance of competing brands in the same size bracket (such as the Surefire M600DF, for instance). This is a pretty major upgrade over the regular OKW light.

The overall lumen output is roughly the same, but the throw is far longer and greatly improved. Basically, the ultimate balance of throw and flood is available in a small handheld flashlight.

Why Should You Choose the OKW 18350 Light Package?

The OKW 18350 Light Package has steady drivers that have been tested to withstand the recoil of up to the SCAR 17 select-fire rifle. This is a very powerful weapons system chambered for the 7.62×51 long-range NATO round. The flashlight also comes with a lifetime guarantee and it’s proudly made and assembled in the US.

It is rated at 1350 out of the front lumens (approx..) while the candela is around 54,000. This makes the Modlite 18350 an excellent overall flashlight that’s capable of double duty for both indoor and outdoor use. Its also equipped with the ultra-clear BOROFLOAT® lens, which easily allows 98 to 99 percent light transmittance.

However, this light doesn’t support regular CR123 cells. These cells may explode if used with the 18350. The  KeepPower 18350 cells are ideal for use with this light.

Conclusion

If you want a rugged and reliable light that can do double duty as a home defense light or an outdoors companion light, the Modlite OKW is your best bet.
