LumiTact G700 Flashlight Review
The LumiTact G700 Flashlight is called the “toughest flashlight on the market”. What’s the big deal with this tactical military flashlight? Let’s find out.
What is the LumiTact G700 Flashlight?
The LumiTact G700 Flashlight is a tactical flashlight made from the same aluminum used to make aircraft. The flashlight claims to be the most durable and longest-lasting tactical flashlight on the market.
One of the most immediate differences between the G700 and a traditional flashlight is the brightness. It’s the difference between, say, getting a dim glow when you turn on your flashlight and getting a circle of bright white light that will scare away an attacker or animal.
The flashlight is classified as military-grade but is marketed towards anybody who needs a good, strong flashlight: like firefighters, police officers, campers, or hunters.
The flashlight is currently being sold through a special online-only offer for $56. When you see that offer advertised online, websites will often claim that it’s normally a $224.45 retail price – so the $56 price tag is a drop of 75%.
How Does the LumiTact G700 Flashlight Work?
The G700 promises to use the latest and greatest flashlight technology to power itself.
First and most importantly, the flashlight has a lighting capacity of 700 lumens. Lighting capacity is always a good place to start when you’re comparing flashlights.
And yes, if you’re wondering, the “G700” name comes from the fact that the flashlight puts out 700 lumens of power.
There are also five pre-set modes available on the flashlight for different situations, including high, medium, low, SOS, and strobe.
Rounding out the flashlight is its aircraft aluminum-grade body that promises to be virtually indestructible. However, you should read the section below to find out why “aircraft aluminum” isn’t quite as impressive of a term as the manufacturer wants you to believe.
But perhaps one of the most surprising features on the G700 is its battery capacity: despite its high-end technology, the flashlight uses only 2 AA batteries. It also consumes a surprisingly low amount of energy: so you’re not going to have to constantly swap out batteries.
The flashlight is built solidly enough to be used as a weapon. There’s also a beveled edge to help you do just a little more damage to your opponent if you get caught in a close confrontation.
What Do Military-Grade and Aircraft-Grade Actually Mean?
Military-grade is one of the most overused terms in this marketplace. Essentially, there’s no “branding” rules for military-grade, which means that any manufacturer can slap the term “military grade” onto their product.
In other words, don’t expect the G700 to survive through a firefight. And don’t expect to see the LumiTact G700 flashlight attached to the top of any assault rifles.
The US military, by the way, does not have an official flashlight and uses any flashlight that’s on the market. However, they typically purchase flashlights from one of the following flashlight makers: Surefire, HDS, Fulton, Gerber, Smith & Wesson, and Maglite.
Meanwhile, “aircraft aluminum” could mean just about anything. Aircraft typically use aluminum alloys. An aluminum alloy is simply a mixture of metals where aluminum is the primary metal.
Aerospace aluminum allows typically involve adding scandium to aluminum to create heat-resistant material.
Before you get too excited about seeing “aircraft aluminum” in your flashlight, consider the fact that baseball bats, lacrosse sticks, tent poles, and bicycle frames are all made with the same aluminum alloys used in aircraft. So it’s a bit of a marketing ploy.
