The fourth generation of the PowerTac E5 is a powerfully bright light in a small, compact package suitable for pocket or belt carry. It's the ultimate everyday carrying light. The new Gen IV E5 produces an amazing 980 lumen maximum light output. The E5 also serves as a true tactical light that can be weapon mounted or hand held. Its durability, shock resistance and rugged build quality make the E5 top choice for professionals.
The light utilizes a powerful CREE XM-L-2 U2 LED that produces a piercing, bright 980 lumen beam when set on high and has a lifespan of 20+ years. The super long 240+ meter beam has impressive flood light capabilities to illuminate close distances also. There are four levels of brightness plus a strobe function featured on the light. The user-friendly controls allow you to easily select the brightness level you want, and the light has a memory function, so when you turn it on, it will return to the prior brightness setting.
