The wait is over: I present my Wowtac A1S review for your consideration.
That may seem a little dramatic, but I get questions about the Wowtac flashlights on a fairly regular basis. The A1S was the first of the company’s flashlights I’ve purchased. Since then, I have also picked up a Wowtac A4 V2 and Wowtac A7 for review.
Tactical flashlights may be the sexy torches on the market, but most shooters need good non-tactical flashlights for work, camping, hunting and every day life. For this reason, I’ve expanded my flashlight testing to include more “workhorse” style EDC flashlights.
In this Fenix LD15R review, I evaluate a tiny right-angle flashlight that I found to be incredibly useful in daily life. It is reasonably priced and performed admirably through more than 16 months of use.
If you’re looking for a handheld light that can throw a blistering amount of light, welcome to my Wowtac A4 V2 review.
Many people are looking for the brightest, longest-throwing tactical flashlight they can find. With the Wowtac A4 V2 selling for about $50, it gets a lot of interest. Considering many quality flashlights sell for $75 or more, the price point is very attractive.
If you have the time, I’d really appreciate it if you took a look at that article (it’s not an affiliate link) and left me a little feedback on what you think.
I’ve tried to explain all of the specifications used in flashlight marketing and explained my rationale behind selecting a good quality light. If you think I missed anything or wasn’t quite clear enough, please let me know.
My goal is to serve you. While we may not always agree on a specific gun or tactic, I try to provide the best information I can on the limited budget and time I have.
Also, if you have any thoughts on what people (including me) leave out of flashlight reviews – PLEASE let me know. Just drop a comment below so I can deliver the information you need.
I’ve been rewriting and updating my testing procedures for flashlights and now is the perfect time for me to work your feedback into the criteria.
There are a lot of white lights, lasers andÂ illuminatedÂ optics on the market that use the small, powerful 123A batteries. Â These batteries work great, but they tend to be expensive.
Surefire is now offering a rechargeable 123A battery kit. Â The kit includes two rechargeable batteries, the charging unit and power adapters for both home (110v AC) and the car (12v DC). Â MSRP on the kit is $29 and additional batteries can be bought for $12/pair.
Rechargeable 123A batteries can be used hundreds of times, offering aÂ significantÂ cost savings over their lifetime. Â However, the rechargeable batteries do not hold as powerful a charge, meaning that runtime is only about 50% of the normal runtime on typical non-rechargeable 123A batteries.
