Is the NightHawk T700 a $200 flashlight? Let’s find out.

Company Background

The XT808 LED Flashlight is sold by Primitive Outdoors, a relatively new company that sells camping equipment and optics and lights. This is their newest release, and they are calling it “one of the best flash lights there is.”

Brightness and power

The XT808 LED Flashlight has 800 lumens of light equal to 60 Watts of light power, powered by 3x rechargeable AAA batteries with a lamp life of 100,000 hours. It uses a Cree XM-L T6 bulb which by now became a standard between law enforcement and military.

The XT808 LED Flashlight has five preset modes:

These models have many applications, but one of the unique styles is the SOS one which allows you to send signals in emergency situations. This flashlight also has a telescopic focus of 1x, 250x, 500x and up to 2000x and with the lighting distance of 500 meters you can pinpoint any desired object in your way.

Material and design functionality

The XT808 LED Flashlight is made of aircraft grade aluminum alloy which is sturdy, durable and prevents breaking if a heavy object falls on your flashlight or if you drop it from a high elevation. Also, it’s 100% waterproof and has a beveled edge which makes it an excellent self-defense weapon against aggressive targets. And with the 800 lumens of light, you can blind anyone trying to attack you.

Box content

The standard pack of the XT808 is pretty simple:

  • Tactical box
  • XT808 LED
  • Charger unit
  • Rechargeable batteries

This makes it easy to store & transport the flashlight and the charger and prevents losing or damaging some of the parts.

Prices

The NightHawk T700 Tactical LED Flashlight is a newly released flashlight from Night Hawk Flashlights that promises to fulfill your needs and demands from a flashlight and currently is at a 75% discount from its regular price of $200.

Is the NightHawk T700 a $200 flashlight? Let’s find out.

Company Background

The NightHawk T700 Tactical LED Flashlight is sold by NightHawk Flashlights an almost unknown company that after research shows that it is owned by a few other companies. Most likely this flashlight is sold by the same businesses that sell the other 75% off flashlights with a regular price of $200+.

Brightness and power

The NightHawk T700 LED has 800 lumens of light and has the Cree XM-L T6 bulb. It is powered by 3x AAA rechargeable batteries and has a bright life of around 100,000 hours. It has an adjustable focus from 1x, 250x, 500x to 2000x. This is almost the same like all the other 75% discount flashlights and lots of other sold now on the Internet.

Features and modes

The NightHawk T700 Tactical has five modes:

  • High
  • Medium
  • Low
  • Strobe
  • SOS

It has a weight of 200 grams (7 ounces) and 6.2×1.4×1.3 inches, which is standard for most of the flashlights.

Material and design functionality

The NightHawk T700 Tactical LED Flashlight is made from aircraft grade aluminum which makes it pretty durable and shock resistant. It also has a beveled edge which can be used as a self-defense weapon in case of attacks.

Box content

The NightHawk T700 pack has a pretty standard content of:

  • NightHawk T700 Tactical LED Flashlight
  • Charger unit
  • Rechargeable batteries

Price

The NightHawk T700 currently is sold with a 75% discount from its regular price of $220. The cost per flashlight is $56, and it drops if you buy more.

However, we must mention that so far there aren’t any customer reviews of this flashlight and there is hardly any information given for this flashlight even on their website. What you can find is sponsored content on few sites that hype the 75% discount and the design of the flashlight including what seems to be fake Twitter and Facebook posts of “customers” telling how pleased they are with this purchase.

After a research of this company background, you can see that at the end of the chain stands another company that claims to find cheap deals and free coupons for you and it features coupons for all kinds of promotions going on.

So is NightHawk T700 worth the price?

Well, this flashlight is identical to many other “75% off” flashlights that you can find on the Internet. They all come with the same features and modes and a similar discount price of $50-$60.

Also, you should consider that you can get identical flashlights on Amazon with the same Cree XM-L T6 technology and beveled edges and aircraft aluminum for the price of $10-$20, so however premium T700 is it’s a bit incentive to pay that much.
