  • Awesome Light

    Give this great flashlight to my niece in college as a gift, she loves it. It not only provides great lighting options, it serves as a bit of a deterrent as it can be or can look quite intimidating. Will be buying more.

  • My Tac Bat Defender Flashlight

    I received my flashlight today and installed batteries -- This is a great flashlight! I was very pleased with the different functions and how much light you get -- can't wait to try it out tonight when I check on the dogs in the backyard!!! I will actually be able to spot them even though I have a really large fenced in yard! Thanks again.

  • Best flashlight during a power outage

    I bought 2 for Christmas presents, for some reason I kept 1 and put it on my counter. Last night we had an unexpected power outage from 9 pm to 3:30 am. I remembered the TacBat Flashlight on my counter. I turned it on and to my surprise it lit the whole room up. It was more amazing than the presentation when I saw it. I have physical limitations of walking, I had no problem walking from room to room with ease nor using it as a room "lamp." I have candles, but they all have fragrance, and to get the brightness, I would have to have lit 5 or more, breathe in the fragrances and still not had the clarity and brightness of the Tac Bat. I felt so much safer with this in my home and now will be watching for the next special to buy more.
