This tactical flashlight made by SureFire should stand up to conditions I’ll face in the jungle. I wanted a rechargeable flashlight that would be bright enough to illuminate all the bumps in the night I’ll hear while laying in my hammock. The LumaMax L7 can purportedly cause temporary blindness if shined directly into the eyes! I haven’t tested this feature on myself yet.
Here’s the run down from Surefire’s website:
Extended-runtime, high-intensity LED flashlight for tactical, duty, and general use. Virtually indestructible power-regulated light emitting diode (LED) provides smooth, brilliant, pre-focused, tactical-level beam five times the light of a big two-D-cell flashlight—bright enough to temporarily blind and disorient a person by impairing his night-adapted vision. Sold as a complete system that includes two B90 batteries, a mountable SmartCharger charging cradle, AC transformer, and DC auto adapter. SmartCharger protects charging batteries from voltage spikes. Long runtime, high light output, rechargeable battery make it perfect for nightly duty use.
- LED light source has no filament to burn out or break, lasts for thousands of hours
- Rugged aerospace-grade aluminum body, Mil-Spec Type III hard anodized in black or olive drab
- O-ring sealed, weatherproof
- Tempered Pyrex® window
- Tailcap switch—press for momentary-on, twist for constant-on
I’ve already used the DC charger that comes with the kit to hook up the Brunton Solaris for recharing the battery. This should suffice for the journey, maybe I can use the Rugged aerospace-grade aluminum body to beat a Bushmaster over the head.
