New Brite Strike Duty Light

Brite Strike

Brite Strike Technologies Inc. recently announced a new rechargeable flashlight that is designed for tactical use. Called the Rhight Duty Light, this new hand held torch claims to be very durable and bright while offering the convenience of being able to charge it in a vehicle or building.

Light Output

According to the company, the Rhight flashlight puts out 1,100 lumens of white light. As I’ve noted on many occasions, lumens is a unit of measure for total light output and is not the only consideration when determining beam brightness or usefulness. Brite Strike does not provide a peak beam intensity (candela) or a beam distance. Nor does the company provide information about the general beam characteristics (spot vs. flood). Another Brite Strike duty flashlight states it has a flood pattern, and that may be carried over into this light.

Power 

As noted above, the light is rechargeable. It can be charged via a wall outlet or through a 12v car adapter. The company advises that the runtime on high is 90 minutes. No output over time chart is provided to show how quickly the brightness drops from the initial peak output.

Water Resistance

Brite Strike claims the flashlight is waterproof – not water resistant. This means it should continue to function after being completely submersed. However, the company does not provide additional details such as to what depth and for how long this unit is waterproof.

Durability

Brite Strike labels this unit as “shockproof” in its catalog and states that this light “….is the toughest, brightest, lightest tactical duty light on the market today.” Unfortunately, I was not able to find any information on drop tests or other evaluations done to back up the claims of toughness or shock resistance.

Pricing

The MSRP on the Rhight is $250.

Brite Strike previously teamed up with Taurus on its First 24 kits.

    Pricey, but not my biggest problem.
    A pet peeve of mine with lights is clip reversibility. Why is it that not many manufacturers design a clip that can be spun around? I’ve had 1 or 2 lights on which I could pull the screws, reverse the clip, reattach, & clip the light to the top of the bill of, for example, a ball cap. When I choose among from a group of lights that are otherwise roughly equal, that (and the function switch) is often the deciding factor; in fact, I’ll take a light a like a little less if I can reverse the clip. If my bike stops running in the boonies, I want to be able to direct the light by adjusting my body; same if I come home, the power is out, & my door is ajar. My hands are busy, and I only have two. Give me a way to attach the light to a cap, collar, sleeve, etc., & have light where I’m facing/looking.
    Okay, I’m dismounting my soapbox now.
