I have been using Princeton Tec lights since I was in the 7th grade (that was a long time ago). It is safe to say that I am a fan. I especially like their “tactical” lights; not because they are tactical, but because they are some of the few lights on the market that come on in low mode. The latest addition to the Princeton Tec Tactical MPLS line is the CHARGE. MPLS stands for Modular Personal Lighting System and the lights contained in this line all provide a myriad of attachment options for everything from MOLLE webbing, to helmets, to head straps like a typical headlamp, and more.
The CHARGE MPLS is a single AA battery powered compact task light with a flexible neck that lets you direct the light exactly where you need it. It offers 3 output levels and multiple output colors (white with red, green, blue, IR, red/green/IR, and red/blue/IR are available). The CHARGE offers a ton of hands-free options with the ability to be attached to MOLLE webbing, multiple types of helmets, and a headstrap.
Stay tuned to JTT for a full review of the CHARGE MPLS. In the mean time, check out Grey Group Training to purchase your own Prinecton Tec CHARGE.
