Lantern tactical - a variety and application
Lantern tactical - light device,used to create a directional beam of light during the shooting. Can also be used for blinding and disorientation, some special models can be used to inflict physical damage. Main characteristics and requirements: strength and reliability in use, high light output, convenient design, low weight and unpretentious operation, long trouble-free operation. Lantern tactical is of two types - manual and installed on the weapon.
Manual tactical lights
The manual version of these light devicesIt is usually used with pistols and revolvers: carbines and automatic weapons are held by two hands, which practically excludes the use of such models. Such products most often have a specially designed crown, which can be damaged, broken glass, etc. The hulls are also designed specifically to provide a comfortable grip. So tactical lights Fenix have a "cigarette grip", which guarantees a convenient position of the lighting device in the hand in almost any position.
Lanterns installed on weapons
This type of lighting can withstandHard operating conditions: immersion in water, high temperatures, recoil and vibration. For this, especially strong materials and new technologies are used, which can not but affect the cost of the product. Because the flashlight tactical cost is much higher than conventional lighting devices.
Currently, most of these devicesBased on high-power LEDs. They provide a high level of illumination at low energy costs. Halogen lamps use little - they consume much more electricity, when creating an equivalent light flux. While the brightness of the lighting remains unattainable, there are xenon flashlights, but their cost is much higher than the LED.
Several years ago,types of weapons were different, the latest models have unified fasteners, which is much more convenient and practical. There is still such a variety as a laser tactical flashlight. This type of light device can also be used as a laser target designator (when selecting a certain operating mode).
Lantern tactical: batteries
For this type of light instrument,reliable uninterrupted operation, which determines the choice of feeding elements. The most popular are lithium cells. They hold the charge for a long time, they work stably at high and low temperatures. Their only drawback is the high price. For cheaper alkaline batteries and battery, the charge also lasts long enough, but their disadvantage is a poor mass-to-charge ratio and a susceptibility to vibrations. Work at high and low temperatures is satisfactory. The third type of batteries - nickel-metal hydride accumulators. They have an average price, but they are quickly discharged and are not kept in a charged state. The pluses include their stable operation at low and high temperatures.
