The HDS Systems' EDC LE flashlights provide a Clicky-style interface that is geared toward law enforcement and security requirements. The EDC LE turns on to High so you always have enough light for potentially tactical situations. Once your flashlight is on, press and hold for Maximum (level 24), double-click to toggle between High (level 22) and Medium (level 16) and triple-click for Tactical Strobe. The Tactical Strobe is handy for warning traffic and making sure you are seen or disorienting someone under the influence.
Our Clicky-style flashlights are the most rugged and reliable flashlights available. The photo shows the level of abuse this light can tolerate and keep on working. This photo was taken after the light was severely abused for two hours, starting with repeated drops from 10m (33 feet) on to concrete and them being thrown as hard as possible at concrete, rocks and steal grates or as far as possible down a paved road.
Typical law enforcement and security tasks demand the light comes on to a tactical brightness (greater than 60 lumens), but not necessarily the maximum brightness. We have chosen a minimum of 110 lumens as a good compromise between brightness and runtime. Maximum is always directly available - even from off - and can be used to provide non-lethal force or to see extended distances.
The EDC LE can also provide a true tactical operation mode – when the button is pressed, your flashlight is on Maximum; when the button is released, your flashlight is off. This method of operation is used for “flash and dash” tactical techniques. This method of operation also ensures that if you should accidentally drop your flashlight, your flashlight will not provide your opponent with a ready target. True tactical mode can be enabled and turned on if desired but is normally disabled.
The four preset brightness levels can be customized so you can adjust the levels to better fit your changing requirements. But don't worry, customization is locked away to preserve the basic simplicity of your flashlight. You have to enable customization before making any changes and then you can disable customization once you are finished.
HDS Systems has been pioneering flashlight technologies since the advent of white LEDs in 1997 to create our best-of-class products. Our flashlights can be customized to fit your particular needs, even as your needs change over time. And our flashlights are small enough to carry with you at all times. A flashlight is only useful if you have it with you when you need it.
We also offer custom built configurations to provide you complete flexibility in specifying your ultimate flashlight.
