TEN-TAP™ Programmable Switch allows the user to select one of three different programs. To change to the next program, starting from the "Off" position, tap the switch rapidly 9 times (within 0.4 seconds per tap) and hold it down the 10th time. Continue holding the switch until the light turns off (approximately 1 second), then release the switch.
Nice tactical flashlight
Reviewer: Brent Penfold
Pros....Good quality. .. Lightweight... Small compact size due to shorter batteries.... Cons.... Can't get rechargeable batteries....
Great light !
This is a great flashlight, I have had several different ones but this seems to do the trick for me. It's super bright,light and durable, what more could be asked?
alll aound use around the home is great.
Fully satisfied. Thanks Tactical Gear
Awesome product. Perfect light for EDC. Fits comfortably in your pocket, but has enough size to grasp a firm hold. Price point is unbeatable for the output of this light. High lumen and strobe functions are great for self defense. Low output mode is perfect for getting to the tree stand or blind without spooking deer. Good, sturdy product all around.
A duty ,must have
Have had this for over one year plus. You have heard great things come in small packages. This is one of them. I have two of them. Used one last night to illuminate an outside 2nd floor dark stairs to assist a person coming down in the rain and I was about 50 feet away. Plenty of light with some to spare I have a led streamlight but this small white light illuminates far better. I carry this on my belt.
awesome light, could use a rougher surface
The light is typical StreamLight, excellent for light output and the button control works great. It could use some knurling on the main body section for a better grip. Could also use larger front "striking lugs". Overall it is great.
Must have light
It has the same batteries as ProTac HL, but since it is designed for lower power output, the batteries last much longer. Being less robust than ProTac HL, it is considerably lighter and much less bulky. It does not feel out of place in the shirt or pajama pocket. It can still provide an advantage in confrontational encounter at close distance and on not-too-sunny day. Reliable, convenient, unobtrusive flashlight for everyday carry on-the-person, in briefcase, backpack, purse or toolbox, preferably all of these. Also a good companion/backup for its larger brother ProTac HL. What could be better: Clip: Lead-on at the tip can be longer. As it is, it is difficult to engage
Had this light for 4 years, used and abused it still worked. lithium batteries are pricy, Only way mine bit it is when my wife ran it through the washing machine. gonna get 2 more
powerful little ligfht
Really like this little flash light. Small but really powerful.
Good product, good price
I took a chance on ordering these after a good friend that works for the local PD told me about them. Very nice, easy to use light, good weight, good price, & as always it was easy & quick to order from tactical gear.
Excellent Small BRIGHT Light
This is an awesome product for the price.
This is an outstanding flashlight, rugged and stands up with use several times a day. I am so impressed with the flashlight I bought several for friends and co-workers.
great for work
I bought it to use for my job. I am maintenance supervisor at a high school. It is small, bright and an asset for my daily duties. I use it daily!
Great Light,Best Price
Great product, good price.
Very good flashlight for its size. Very bright
This is a great quality product. I bought it for my father who is an advid hunter he loves the flashlight.
Great light! Will buy another!
Streamlight is a company to be recognized by all others. Excellent price for an excellent build. Haven't bought a light from them that wasn't the best I've had.
I purchased 2 of these lights for my wife and I for nighttime kayaking. We have tested them several times in near complete darkness and are extremely satisfied with them. I recommend these lights to anyone looking for a light that truly breaks into the darkness.
Perfect in a small package
Perfection! I'm so impressed with the huge light from this small flashlight. I will order another.
I was really impressed with this tactical light!! Just the perfect size as a secondary light, but most of the time use it as my primary. It is definitely worth its price!!!! As a matter of fact, my fiancé liked it so much, I purchased her one also. I would recommend this light to everyone!!!
bad lil" thang
perfect for everyday use. I have a streamlight strion and the protac appears brighter. Only downside is it SUPER tiny!!!
Great little light
I bought this for my wife to keep in her car. It's a solid little light with some neat features. It has proven reliable and easy to use and I'd buy another any time.

I received the Streamlight Protac 2L a week ago. It far out performs Mag light, Duracell, and Pelican flashlights. The center beam is bight and free of any dark spots and the peripheral beam is more than sufficient. This is a compact power house. The taillight switch isn't as tricky as some may convey. You just have to 1) read the directions and familarize yourself with it. I take it everywhere. It comes in handy at work, at home, and in uneasy situations. Buy it, you'll love it. By-the-way, the delivery time was amazingly fast.
Nice little light
I bought this guy to replace a Polytac that I somehow managed to lose and that I was, in turn, lost without. My main light is a Streamlight Stinger but I need a small backup light that I can always carry since the Stinger is too large to wear comfortably all the time. This light is great. Typical Streamlight quality without the ultra-premium price tag. It is VERY bright at max, the strobe is nice and disorienting, it's sturdy and feels good in your hand, and the tailcap switch feels solid. Only a couple minor negatives: a. It is very lightweight. Along with the light weight (I had to double check to make sure it wasn't a polymer flashlight when I first took it out of its package), it's fairly skinny...not much bigger around than the included lithium batteries. It's also a shorter light (which I wanted), and if you take it all together and it's just not a very substantial tool. Not a big deal, but I wouldn't have minded something a bit more solid. b. The switching system. This is what I knocked a star off for. I can understand why Streamlight did what it did here, but the pattern doesn't work best for me. Click once and it comes on in high mode. Click again, and it strobes. Click a third time and it goes to low. I would have MUCH preferred it started low, then high, then strobe. It's not a deal breaker and I'll get used to it, but I really don't like it much. Also, like I mentioned above, the switch feels positive and sturdy, but it's a long-throw and clicking through that long throw 5 times to get to low-mode is mildly irritating. c: The included pouch is pretty cheap and I'll be trying to find a molded nylon pouch to replace it. I honestly worry about the security of this light while hanging on my belt, but I've had no problems with it (other than mental ones, that is). All that aside, it really is a great light and I'd buy it again if I had to do it over again.
A very light, very bright little flashlight!
This is a fantastic little flashlight! It is very lightweight and fits comfortably into a shirt pocket or pants pocket without weighing the pocket down terribly. The three light settings are cool also. On the bright setting this light is incredibly bright for its size. The dim setting is nice for when you don't need a real bright light and want to save your battery. I'm not sure what the strobe setting is really useful for but my kids love it. Negatives are pretty mild. The beam cannot be focused like you can with a "Mag Lite". It would be nice if you could adjust the beam but it really doesn't hurt the usefulness at all. Learning to work the switch to get the different light settings takes a bit of practice but most get the hang of it pretty quickly. The unusual CR123A batteries are a bit inconvenient also but the battery life is pretty long so it's not a big deal if you're not using the flashlight very often (like me). I bought one for my brother-in-law. He's one of these guys that is really hard to buy for and he loved it! A really cool little flashlight that I highly recommend.
A good have with batteries that will last
Purchased the Streamlight with 2AA batteries too. I think the advantages of this one are (1) it has a stronger intensity light, (2) one does not have to worry about the batteries leaking during storage in the flashlight. The CR123A batteries have a ten-year battery life so you can keep the flashlight w/batteries in the glove compartment of your car for emergency use. Granted, the batteries are more expensive than the AAs or AAAs, but when you pay so much for a quality flashlight, you don't want the batteries to leak and ruin your flashlight. I have Inova, Fenix, and Streamlight flashlights. The Streamlights are good for the money. I would not say one manufacturer's flashlight is better that the other; its what matters to you as terms of what you regard as important to you in a flashlight.
