From the Manufacturer
While our Tactical Blue Dot is the perfect tool for duty and combat, we decided that we needed a tactical light better suited to the conference room, so we developed the EPLI, Executive Precision Lighting Instrument. The EPLI is a slim and sleek tactical light made of high grade aircraft aluminum with Mil spec graphite anodized finish. The Bezel is polished stainless steel and brass, it looks more like a fine writing instrument than a tactical flashlight. Don't let this elegant exterior fool you. The EPLI uses the latest Cree LED with state of the art digital power management to deliver maximum power and run time out of two AAA batteries. The EPLI has a special highly polished steel reflector that is much more narrow and deep than our other lights. The design produces a brilliant, 160 lumen color tuned beam that closely approximates natural daylight. The low setting at 80 lumens is perfect for reading a menu in a dark restaurant and the third setting is a dazzling 160 lumen strobe which can distract and disorient an attacker. The new EPLI is the perfect tool for the warrior whose battlefield is the board room.
Top customer reviews
1) It's nice and compact.
2) The build is sturdy. The finish has worn from being carried in my pocket, but that gives it a more rugged look anyway.
3) The beam is relatively bright and focused.
1) This thing *eats* batteries. This is actually what prompted my review... I let a co-worker borrow it, and as I watched him use it, I was stressing about how much of the $12 battery he was using.
2) Brite Strike's instructions said you can only use batteries from certain companies (Panasonic or Duracell), or you'd void the warranty. I suggest you look around to see how many stores sell Panasonic or Duracell 123 batteries before you buy (and the price on them... they aren't cheap, like other 123 batteries).
3) This thing gets hot. Like really, really hot. And not the glass, but the actual metal casing. It can get hot enough that you can't stick it in your pocket.
Using two AAA batteries instead of the type 123A or such high power battery is the phenomenal to me. On top of that, it squeezes out "Max Output: up to 220 lumens/Lo-110 lumens", out from such a slender housing!! Runtime doesn't matter to me.
Product is surely the masterpiece, however, they might still be selling last year's EPLI model. When I googled under 2012 Brite Strike EPLI, I found product's specification with "Max Output: up to 160 lumens", on the hand, same product at the manufacturer's website shows "Max Output: up to 220 lumens/Lo-110 lumens" as of today.
If I'm gonna spend the same amount of money, I surely would like get the latest model.
Another negative -- this flashlight is listed as "rechargeable" but really it just comes with a rechargeable battery with a separate charger. There are flashlights on the market that do not require removal of the battery for recharging so it is misleading to refer to this flashlight as "rechargeable". You may think I'm just nitpicking but a flashlight without a battery in it is useless so any time you recharge this flashlight, you obviously can't use it which reduces its effectiveness as a product for personal safety. With a truly rechargeable flashlight, you simply pull the flashlight off the charger and it is ready to go any time you need it. With this flashlight, unless you carefully schedule when you recharge the battery and remember to put the battery back in, you could find yourself in a situation in the middle of the night where you are awkwardly stumbling in the dark to pull the battery off the charger and get it in the flashlight.
I am also not fond of the switching system. There is no momentary-on feature. Momentary-on is an important feature in a self-defense situation where you want to be able to quickly turn the light on and off to assess the environment while minimizing your own visibility. This switch requires a full press to turn the light on and then partial presses to cycle between high, low, and strobe. The switch itself is difficult to press due to the recessing that Brite Strike claims is to protect the switching system from damage.
On a positive note, this flashlight does feel solid and rugged. Ultimately, it is impossible to test things like waterproofing and ruggedness without actually attempting to break the flashlight and I don't intend to do that. The crowns on both ends protrude more than my other flashlights and I imagine makes it more effective for striking or applying to pressure points.
In summary, this flashlight simply is not worth the price. A number of other lights are available from other manufacturers that are superior to this flashlight in nearly every way at a fraction of the cost. I've given it 2-stars because it is functional.
