Light for Life from 5.11 Tactical

Can you imagine owning a light that was designed to hand down to your grand children? Tired of buying batteries? Weary of requiring multiple lights due to charging cycles? If your answer to any of these questions was “yes”, then you need to take a look at 5.11 Tactical’s latest product unveiled at the recent SHOT Show in Orlando.

5.11 Tactical Light for Life

The Light for Life was developed in conjunction with IVUS Energy Innovations, the makers of Flashpointâ„¢ Power Technology. Utilizing a revolutionary design the Light for Life relies on three ultra capacitors rather than traditional batteries. The capacitors are rated for 50,000 charge/discharge cycles (a charge a day for more than 135 years) with virtually no degradation.

One of the most amazing points about the light is that it charges in 90 seconds. This means, it can be recharged virtually anywhere power is available.

The lamp consists of three LEDs rated for over 50,000 hours (40 hours a week for over 24 years) and features three outputs:
-90 lumens for 90 minutes and then 25 lumens for 30 additional minutes
-270 lumens for 30 minutes dropping to 25 lumens for an additional 30 minutes

The Light for Life will float and is waterproof to 3 meters.

The Light for Life flashlight is unlike anything we’ve seen in or out of the tactical industry. At $169.99 it’s a steal. After all, with stats like that, it’s designed to outlast you. The only downside is that they aren’t available until the end of May. The light will come with a charger and belt ring.
