Tactical Flashlights

A tactical flashlight must be more durable than any normal flashlight is asked to be, without adding additional weight. In addition, tactical flashlights are usually required to be waterproof.

Tactical flashlights are often required to be bright enough to blind an opponent, or dim enough to avoid detection by enemy forces.

In addition to all of this, the batteries which power a tactical flashlight must serve reliably for an entire mission. There is no time to change batteries during a fire fight.
