XT808 FLASHLIGHT Review: Tactical Military LED Flashlight
The XT808 LED Flashlight is supposed to be one of the best selling flashlights on the market. It’s built for military use and police enforcement, but it is ideal for outdoors activities such as hiking and camping, and it can be used for self-defense as well. The main reason I bought it was because the price is very affordable since it is on a promotion of shipping and handling only.
This flashlight is sold by Primitive Outdoors, a company that sells outdoors equipments. The XT808 Flashlight is their newest release and it is already being said that it is “one of the great flashlights in the market”.
My Review about XT808 LED Flashlight
Once I ordered the flashlight at the official website, it took 4 business days to arrive at my home address. Upon receiving the Tactical Flashlight, I could really tell by its packaging that this light was the real deal. The light itself is very small and sleek, with 5 zoom settings and the coveted “strobe mode” and “SOS” that can come very handy at some situations.
After placing in the batteries and trying it out, it’s clear that this is the brightest flashlights I have ever had. And after turning on the strobe mode for 5 seconds I had to turn it off because it was extremely disorienting.
After playing with the light for few minutes, it is not difficult to understand why so many people are buying it.
