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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The MSRP on the Rhight is $250.
Brite Strike previously teamed up with Taurus on its First 24 kits.
