Default High-Intensity Tactical LED flashlights at Costco

They work great. They were $19.99 for a pair at Costco today. Made in USA/China. I have Surefire flashlights and they are great. These CREE XPC Techlite Lumen Master Tactical Flashlight run on more common AAA batteries and cost way less. Great truck light.


Brand: TechLite Lumen Master (China)

* Low Battery Indicator Light - a blinking red LED housed in a translucent rubber textured tailcap switch, activates at 20% battery life
* Electronic Optimizer - maintains constant lumen output for life of batteries
* High (160 lumen, 100%) and Low (50%) Beams - push button activation on tailcap
* CREE XPC LED - 100,000 hour bulb life (roughly equivalent to 11 years constantly on), made in USA
* 4 Hour Battery Life - on high beam, longer on low
* 100 Meter beam "cast"
* "Emergency" Strobe Mode - for signaling (or CQB disorientation)
* Adjustable Focus - wide (flood) and narrow (spotlight) beams
* Momentary Switch - rather than having to constantly click on the tail switch to cycle through the light modes, you can hold down the switch for a momentary "on" at full power, 160 lumens. Releasing the switch turns it off.
* Water Resistant - Silicone O-Ring, up to 1 meter
* Shockproof - up to 1 meter drop
* Wrist Lanyard - nylon
* Aircraft Grade Anodized Aluminum Body - diamond textured for grip
* Polycarbonate Lens
* Vacuum Plated Reflector - half diamond textured for optimal light reflectivity
* Runs on 3 AAA Batteries (Included) - Duracell, in an internal "triad" configuration
* Tactical "Strike" Bezels - both on lens housing and tailcap, for self defense

I got a pair Saturday and apart from being a bit bulky for my intended use (edc) I love this light. Bright as all-get-out, nice strobe feature and adjustable beam. I ditched the lanyard right away. Probably the weakest feature of this deal plus I just don't like lanyards on my lights.

I will put one in my truck and keep one with me. Good find!

Sears had the same thing, but different brand for $39.99 each for 160 Lumens. These Costco ones are $10 each. Best deal that I know of?

If looking for a cheaper version of these to toss around the house, there is a 10-pack of Brinkmann 6-LED flashlights at Home Depot for $10. Pick a set up this weekend. They are surprisingly bright.

I bought the exact same Costco flashlights. They were a super deal and are very rugged.

These are great lights. It was brought up here about a month ago.

Just be aware that this strobe function is not a disorientation strobe. The strobe feature on this model is for signaling.

You can tell by the speed of the strobe. In the dark or absolute darkness, the strobe on this light is to fast to be "disorienting". It is almost a constant light. Disorienting strobes are at a slightly slower pace. This gives a more "blinking" on and off effect messing with the eye's ability to adjust to those contrasts. If it blinks to fast, the eyes will compensate faster such as this case. Give it a try in the dark and you will see what I mean.

Costco had them for 14.99 a couple of weeks ago. I got them and they are not bad for the price but I would not consider them as tactical lights. Personally, I am done with buying cheap lights. I want 1-2 good Fenix 2AA lights such as LD20. They are expensive but will last you thru TEOTWAWKI and beyond unless it is the EMP, solar or man-made.

A word of advise, if you are serious about your flashlights, get yourself some quality rechargeable batteries(Sanyo Eneloop) and a couple of nice chargers.

I also have this on my birthday wish list

Did you ask them if they carried them or just couldn't find them? They were out on a display in mine near the end of an isle....though all stores are obviously somewhat different. You can also find them on their site. If you look for them on Brinkmann's site, they are not there, which makes me think they are particular to HD. So, unless they told you they don't carry them, you may want to look around again.

Good Luck. For the price, can't beat $1 LED flashlights w/ solid lumens.

As far as I know, no Costcos around me, but I'll have to look around online for this. Doubt I'd get that good of a deal though
Are they waterproof at all?

I bought the same lights several months ago.

They are NOT true tactical lights.

Although the button to use it is in the right spot to be a tactical light used in conjunction with a pistol it is not a on/off burst of light. You have to cycle through three modes of light (low, high and strobe) to turn it off again.

True tactical lights feature quick on/off bursts of light rather than having the user fumble through a cycle of light modes which present him as a target.

That said they are fine for just walking around, are priced well, very bright and have a tough exterior to resist drops or striking someone.
