Being a law enforcement officer these days is an especially tough and thankless job. Officers need to carry a variety of tools to perform their duties but what if you’re an officer, what tool do you use the most? Handcuffs? Knife? Gun? Chances are it’s your flashlight. Many still associate large D cell battery flashlights with police officers but today officers have a variety of duty flashlights to choose from. One of the common difficulties law enforcement members face when selecting their duty flashlight is finding a flashlight that meets all their needs. There are a lot of good flashlights to choose from but many only have one or two of the features required by someone in law enforcement. For example, a light might be super bright but not have variable illumination settings. Fortunately, there is a duty flashlight specifically designed for law enforcement with all the necessary features to help you serve and protect your communities.
Here is why the Powertac Warrior is the Ultimate Duty Light:
Reliable, Durable Construction
Your flashlight could save your life so you need to be able to depend on it working every time you need it and not break if you drop it or get it wet. The Warrior assures long-lasting performance using body-parts made from aircraft grade aluminum and maintains its appearance through extreme weather and rugged treatment with a tough, durable Type III anodized finish. The lens is made of tempered glass with double-sided coating that resists breakage or scratching on impact while maximizing light output. LED and electronic components are protected from overheating by a superior heat sink designed for quick heat dispersion. A precision O-ring sealed design resists water damage. Finally, the Warrior is ergonomically designed with anti-slip knurling and matte style finish for a firm grip.
Seconds can mean life or death which is why your duty flashlight needs to be easy to operate. The Warrior features an auto-memorization for direct on/off access to all brightness levels plus a dedicated strobe button.
A super bright light may be ideal as spotlight during a night patrol, building checks and low-light tactical situations; but not for writing a ticket or looking at a driver’s license. Anyone who’s attempted this knows white paper will definitely reflect the light back into your eyes. The Warrior features illumination from 1 to 1050 lumens and a throw up to 340 meters giving you the variable output you need for every situation.
A strobe light is an excellent tool to disorient someone acting aggressively. Many flashlights include a strobe mode but to get to it you have to cycle through the other settings. The Warrior features a dedicated strobe button for instant access because criminals won’t wait for you to cycle through your flashlights settings to get to strobe.
If you are forced to defend yourself, your flashlight can serve as an improvised self-defense tool. The Warrior features a crenellated bezel on the head cap for self-defense use.
There are several accessories available for the Warrior including: red, green and blue slip on color filters, slip on traffic cones for a super bright amber illumination wand and an engineered plastic duty belt holster. The Warrior can also be mounted to a rail and offers an optional remote pressure switch.
No one wants to carry around a bunch of batteries and frequent replacements can get expensive so it’s best to have a flashlight that accepts rechargeable batteries. Powertac Lights accept both non rechargeable CR123A and rechargeable 18650 batteries. Officers have told us that they will run rechargeable batteries 95% of the time and for the few occasions when they are out all night, they will use backup CR123A batteries if their primary batter runs out. The Warrior features a unique digital circuit control technology to maximize battery life and consistent light output performance. Additionally, the electronics are protected against damage caused by improper battery installation through a reverse polarity protection circuit.
Law enforcement officers have one of the toughest jobs out there so you deserve the best tools to help you do your job. Serve and protect your communities with the Warrior flashlight.
