8.7 tech score It is the brightest tactical flashlight on the market and everybody needs to own one
Before I start reviewing the G700 let me tell that this is one of the most likely reports on m34tactical for this year. My friends, our readers and thousands of forum users have been asking the same questions over and over again, and nobody seems to be getting the right answers. That is why I have the decided to make this review the ultimate source of information for the great and best-selling Lumiact G700 flashlight.
The Story Behind the G700
According to most advertisements, the G700 was originally designed for the US army. It’s purpose was to allow soldiers to blind subjects in the dark from a considerable distance so they can buy an extra second or two between shootouts.
To create a tactical functionality Lumitact needed to develop a very bright beam that can be focused on an area not larger than 5 square feet. At the time there were two significant obstacles stopping them; the first was fitting a powerful LED light in a hand-held flashlight and second was powering that light with a 6 volts AAA battery.
Testing with various options Lumitact realized that the only solution for creating a true blinding flashlight was to reinvent the LED.
And so they did.
Searching for the highest Lumen power that can fit your pocket, Lumitact patented a revolutionary LED chip. The chip consumes the same amount of power as the LED while being 30 times brighter.
Once they’ve solved the brightness problem, the only problem left was focusing the beam on a limited 5 square feet area while pointing it from a large distance. The key for this solution is the optical lens that works as a magnifying glass.
To make the flashlight more practical they added the focusing option so that you can adjust the beam size based on your needs.
With a powerful blinding beam that can stay alive for more than 72 continuous hours on a 6 volts battery, a version of the Lumitact G700 flashlight became the US military’s favorite toy still in use today.
However, this technology was never forbidden for public use since flashlights like these were available for sale since 2013. Maybe not all flashlights were as powerful as the G700, but they were there, despite that, nobody was giving them as much credit as we give them today.
Brightness and Blinding Power
The G700 can reach up to 3,000 feet. However, visibility on such a distance can be very poor. To blind a person with it, you must be 500 feet or closer.
It is very dangerous to point the G700 in someone’s eyes from only a few feet away. I know it can be fun to do it, but it can be very damaging to the eyes.
Battery & life longevity
The G700 packaging includes a free battery charger. Charging time is less than 2 hours, and on a full battery, you will get 4 hours of continues lighting.
If you are a security guard that doesn’t use the flashlight so often the battery can last for weeks.
Different Light Modes
There are three light modes on the G700:
- Continues light
- Strobe light
- SOS light
Material & Design Functionality
Made out of carbonized aluminum, the G700 is a highly durable shock resistant flashlight that can also be used in extreme weather conditions.
Because of the military purpose, the G700 has sharp edges on top so it can also be used as a knife.
Why does it cost so much?
The original G700 by Lumitact uses a patented LED technology that no other brand can use. The carbonized aluminum material, the optical lens, and the charger are just features that raise the price.
The current price for the G700 is $56 with free shipment included. The only place you can buy the G700 is from TheG700Flashlight.com. There are similar cheaper versions also available on Amazon.
