It also works as a blinding flashlight with 3 light functions. The first function is full brightness, the 2nd is half power and the 3rd function is strobe light.
The strobe feature has been included as the fast flashing lights are proven to disorientate the attacker. This can either give you time to get away, or, make your strike!
On top of this you can also adjust the light size. Keep the strike light closed for a wider light. This is best for close combat. Then twist and extend the baton and the light becomes smaller and more focused. Use this feature for long distances.
All in all, the STRIKELIGHT™ is a great all-round tactical flashlight and defense weapon.
