To say that tactical lighting has taken some amazing turns over the last 3 or 4 years is a gross understatement. Thanks to the R&D efforts of companies like Streamlight the technology has advanced at an exponential rate with no end in sight. I’ll be wrapping up April’s review schedule with a look at the Streamlight TLR II HL. To simply say that operators, law enforcement and outdoorsmen now have 600+ lumens of lighting available does no justice to the technology.
With that in mind, I’d like to share with you three very revealing slides, for comparative analysis. Throughout the slide series the light source was kept 60 feet away from the wall.
Slide 1. Xenon Bulb 80 lumens
Slide 2. LED light source 150 lumens
Slide 3. LED light source 630 lumens
Catch my review of Streamlight’s TLR-2 HL on 30-Apr-2013. It’s amazing…
