2008 Smith & Wesson 5 Watt Luxeon Rebel LED Tactical Flashlight

COLLIERVILLE, Tn. - PowerTech, Inc, maker of Smith & Wesson Flashlights, has officially announced the availability of its 2008 Smith & Wesson 5 Watt Luxeon Rebel LED Tactical Flashlight. The small 2 AA flashlight was designed for consumers and police departments, who want the extreme brightness and distance of the latest LED technology, yet aren't comfortable with the cost of CR123 batteries.

This new 5 Watt Luxeon LED Flashlight is fully regulated which means the brightness you see with fresh batteries is the brightness you'll see just before batteries are depleted. Special circuitry stores power from the batteries and then delivers just the right amount to the bulb to maintain maximum brightness.

At 100 lumens of brightness, the 5 Watt Luxeon LED flashlight is brighter than most 5 D battery cell flashlights, yet runs on the included 2 AA batteries for up to 2 hours. Consumers using 2 AA Lithium batteries can expect up to 10 hours of run time. The light also includes a removable pocket clip, wrist lanyard and a holster in addition to the 2 AA batteries. A true tactical tail cap switch allows users to twist all the way for constant on, or simply back off a half twist for momentary mode. Then, when you're ready to put the light away, another half twist allows the light to safely be stored without worries of accidental illumination. And with an MSRP of only $49.95, it's sure to be at the top of many wish lists this year.
