EDCTM Ultimate Flashlights

EDCTM Ultimate Flashlight

EDC Ultimate

Discontinued - sold August 2004 through October 2006

The EDC Ultimate flashlight is the pinnacle in state-of-the-art pocket flashlights. We combined the pioneering electronic, thermal, optical and interface technologies from the Action Light series into a pocket-sized flashlight to create this best-of-class everyday carry flashlight. This is the smallest, brightest and most versatile flashlight available. The light is so small you can carry it with you wherever you go while at the same time having the light output associated with much larger flashlights.

The EDC Ultimate flashlight is available in the following models:

EDC Ultimate Extreme - 85 lumens maximum output.
EDC Ultimate 60 - 60 lumens maximum output. ($195)
EDC Ultimate 60 GT - 60 lumens maximum output with guaranteed tint. ($245) This flashlight is for those who must have the absolute whitest white in output tint. These are the whitest LEDs manufactured. We guarantee the color of these LEDs will lie close to the Planckian black body radiator line in the range of 0.30 to 0.33 on the x-coordinate on the CIE-1931 Chromaticity Diagram.
EDC Ultimate 60 XR - 60 lumens maximum output with extended runtime. ($245) This flashlight provides a 50% longer minimum runtime at 60 lumens than the standard model.
EDC Ultimate 60 XR GT - 60 lumens maximum output with extended runtime and guaranteed tint. ($295) This flashlight combines the features of the EDC Ultimate 60 XR and the EDC Ultimate 60 GT into a single flashlight.

The EDC Ultimate flashlights provides the following features:

  • Your choice of maximum output - the world's smallest tactical brightness LED flashlight. 4 preset levels, 20 brightness levels with visually even spacing

We have made selecting the brightness you need so convenient you will not be afraid to use a lower brightness setting for most of your tasks. When the light is on, just press and hold the button to get the maximum brightest - any time. As a result, your batteries last many times longer than they did before.
