We always stress the importance of handheld lights at T.REX. If you ask anybody what they use more, their concealed firearm or the flashlight app on their smartphone… 99.99% of them will say they use the flashlight app. But is a flashlight app on your phone good enough to properly identify targets? Or scan your surroundings? Nope. That’s where a high-lumen dedicated flashlight comes in.
The SureFire EDCL1-T is a legit little light boasting 500 lumens with an intuitive button system and pocket clip for easy carrying. At 500 lumens you’ve got 1 hour of run time, and on low power mode of 5 lumens you have 45 hours. The low lumen mode is great for finding your misplaced keys in the car, making sure you don’t step on your dog in the living room late at night, or quickly snagging all of your passports out of the floor safe before fleeing a totalitarian dystopia.
