Being a modern tactical flashlight, this light maintains many features that are standard for high quality lights. The body of the light is made from lightweight aluminum, and the strike bezel / retaining ring is made from durable stainless steel. This light is also fully rechargeable, and includes both a USB charging cord and the 18650 Li-ion rechargeable battery required to power the light.
The XT11S is outfitted with the latest CREE LED to be used in tactical style lights, the CREE HP-L HI V3. Running on either 2 CR123A or a single rechargeable 18650, you can reach output levels upwards on 1100 Lumens, surpassing the previous high end of 1000 lumen in tactical style lights. For outdoor work, the deep parabolic reflector of this light allows that lighting power to be thrown 330 meters, an excellent tool for long range searching.
