This is the Solarforce host and Drop In as developed and tested with The Austin Police Marksmanship Team (APDMT)
It has 22 user selectable mode groups (see mode groups listed in Technical Specs), but the default mode group is 100%-25%-2%. This mode group has 'no memory' -when the flashlight is turned on, it will always start in High Mode.
The output of this flashlight is just over 1150 OTF lumens at 30 seconds. The actual output of each flashlight will be recorded and the information will be included in the shipment.
The flashlight has a 'Turbo Step Down' function which will be set at 3 minutes, at which time, the light will decrease power to extend battery life.
The ability to change mode groups can be disabled by connecting the two silver contacts with silver conductive paint (included). This ensures the mode group will not change during normal use. If the conductive paint is removed by scraping or sanding, the mode group change function will be available again.
interchangeable contacts on the drop in - If a spring is over-compressed or damaged, you can just screw a new spring in (extra springs are included)
