Does this use a forward rear clickie?

Will this light remember it's last mode when the light is selected off?

What is the finish, Type III Hard Anodize of Type II Anodize?
I found out from Jason that the Tactical P7 finish is Type III Hard Anodize.

Uses a reverse clickie, but forward clicky to cycle through the modes and will default back to high mode 900lm when you first turn it on.


I will probably pick one up.

- I like to see 4 modes ( power output levels yes?) as a feature.
How do you change it?

- Do you have picture of projected dot against the wall. I would like to see circle shape and dispersion. Specially compared to 24W and 35W tactical

- Is it a one P7 diode inside, or more?

- I think I read that Tactical 24W has limited beam angle adjustment. Is this one capable of any "focus" too? and how is it done?

- I noticed they are out of stock on Tactical 24W and 35W in your store. When are they back, and what new features will they have now - if any.

Sorry for so many questions

thanks in advance

Miloš
Not sure whats wrong with the forums... They have been down for a couple days for me, and I posted last night and my post was gone?

Anyways I'll try to answer your questions.

- There are 4 modes. You turn the light on via reverse clicky. To cycle through the modes you press down 1/2 way like a forward clicky to go from 100% to 70% to 50% to 20%.

- There is one P7 LED in the light. P7 is a quad die emitter so its basically 4 of the brightest single die LED's in one package.

- Like most LED lights, the beam is NOT adjustable on the P7. It does provide more throw than our 24W simply because the shape of the reflector. It's more rounded. It also does give a little bit of usable spill.

- We have 35W's on the way. They now have a dual stage ballast so they have a 35W mode and a 28W mode. They are also 4300k for maximum brightness. About 20-30% brighter than a 6000k 35W! They will in in stock in one week! We are taking orders for the 35W now! http://tacticalhid.info/hid-store

This light looks similar to the 1300 lumen monster available on DX:

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.20233

My riding buddy showed up with that one. He'd bought it thinking it might make a better bike light, but this thing seriously weighs over 3 pounds. The heat sink is massive and it's very awkward to hold being so head-heavy. The 3 18650s are actually the lightest part. It's totally impractical and even he, (the photon whore that he is) realizes he won't ever use it as a flashlight. (He has dozens to choose from)

I much prefer the lightweight P7 units on DX. Just as bright, much less weight (and cost). I just carry extra 18650s for those multi-hour rides.

Nice case though.

Default Re: Tactical P7 900 lumen LED flashlight for sale!

Hey Rangedunits,

Spend a little more money and get this one: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12623

It has a very nice transition from hotspot to spill and it's 900 lumens, which is close to a car headlight in intensity. I use these on my bars and helmet for riding. Very bright and no defined hot-spot, which can be disorienting on a bike. One 18650 will last an hour before the protection kicks in, but I usually swap in a new one around the 45 min. mark, so as not to stress the cell. If you ride in traffic a lot, get the 3-mode version with the strobe. It makes you very visible to drivers. (Although I got cautioned by a cop once because it was so distracting and looks a lot like a police strobe here in Canada. :P)

Make sure you get a mount that swivels for aiming your light. These are good: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.21314

You won't regret the extra $$$ when you're in the dark.

Cheers, CC

Heh Heh...

I ride year-round here in Toronto! ;D

Yes the light is removable quite simply. I've found that most Chinese plastic snaps really easily in cold weather. (I've been through a lot of mounts trying to find ones that are OK with cold.) Rubber straps are better, they're just stiffer below zero.

The charger and batteries are OK. Always make sure you get protected 18650 cells. They won't explode and won't get destroyed if you let the flashlight run down.

Happy riding. (and sorry for the thread-jack jasonck08 ) :-[ PM me if you need more info Rangedunits Thx.

Wow guys... seriously create a new thread for all this talk. * *;D

One thing to keep in mind about most of the cheap little DX P7 lights is that the heatsink size is really not adequate for a 10W LED.

Lots of those lights get very hot and this can shorten the life of the P7. *Especially if your going to be using it for an hour at a time.

Since you guys are talking about bike lights, I'll let you know what we have coming...





We should have a prototype ready soon. *It will most likely use a 3x18650 battery pack that you can mount somewhere on the frame of the bike.

Yea its crazy bright turns night into day. I had it in a park the other day. Accidentally shined it on a couple in the distance. They thought I was a police with a search light looking for trouble hahah.

Also the bike light will actually have a 4x 18650 battery pack... and we should have a sample in a month!

I just received my Tactical P7.

The finish is excellent. No flaws in the Type III Hard Anodize.

The fit is excellent.

The beam tint is white slight warm side., no blue tint.

I will post a review in a few days.

this is true, There are at least 10 choices for small 1x P7 diode 900 lumen flashlights at kaidomain and Dealextreme for under $60 free shipping.
what sets this one aside from others?
The main differences between a "generic" light and the more expensive models can be found in build quality and driver. The cheaper ones tend to have poor heat-sinking (leading to a burned-up led or electronics), a plastic reflector and lens (instead of aluminium and glass with AR coating), poor quality threads and usually no water-proofing. The drivers are usually basic versions with little (or no) over-discharge protection, no temperature control and no regulation (the light dims as batteries are used up).

Of course, I haven't used all of the cheap models and some are actually great bargains, but sooner or later you'll run into a hitch caused by low manufacturing standards. Some of those lights run for years, others die in a few days. So it's more of a gamble.

I would tend to agree however, a crap light in the hands of a knowledgable and competent person, can be turned into a light of equal quality, with some very basic modifications. I.e. new pill (heatsink), driver, etc.. and with a smaller amount of money than investing in a high quality light. I've purchased I don't know how many of these lights from DX and have turned them into some very nice lights.

Please don't get me wrong. The light "looks" nice (other than it being overly large for my tastes) and with the additional 18650's in the light would spell really long run times compared to the lights I've got. The extra size would seem to indicate as well really long run times in the terms of heat dissipation.

You are sooo right Kenom, that is one fat light!

If there are different configurations available for this light than it's a different story.
Something looks spooky to me about this light, I will do some research and post my results.
