Elzetta Rolls Out New Site and Updated Alpha

Elzetta.com is sporting an updated look these days. The new look also comes with updated flashlight selection tools to make it easier to get your hands on the Elzetta light that best fits your needs. For a limited time, you can save 10% off your ordwer when you use the code “NewSite”.

Elzetta has also updated their excellent single CR123A Alpha Flashlight (my current favorite EDC). The new light boasts increases in both output and runtime. The output is up more than 100 lumens to 415 lumens and the runtime has increased 10%! The light still retains its smooth, floody beam fitting its intended design as a close to medium range illumination tool.

Elzetta on Weapon Mounted Lights

When Dave from Elzetta talks weapon lights and light mounts, you might expect him to spend several minutes talking up the light mounts and mountable lights that his company produces. He does cover those products but the entire discussion in the video below is couched in terms of safety (Cooper’s 4 Rules #2 and #4) and how various configurations can be beneficial to the shooter. The end result is that this video is not just a marketing tool but it is actually a very effective basic weapon light primer.

2015 Limited Edition Flashlight from Elzetta

Elzetta creates a limited edition flashlight every year. They are always unique and rarely last for very long. This year’s light is the most eye catching one yet. If you want one, don’t sit around waiting…

Elzetta on Candela

Elzetta released the latest video in their excellent flashlight education series…

Browse the weapon light related posts on any firearm related forum and you are sure to see someone claiming that tactical lights with a certain lumen rating are too bright for indoor use. It may be useful to generalize like this with lumens as a guide but it is not correct. Lumens are a measure of total output and they really don’t tell the whole story when it comes to what is too bright. The way those lumens are shaped plays a larger role than total output in determining what is “too bright”.

Fortunately, Dave at Elzetta has taken the time to break down a unit of measure called candela which is a measure of brightness typically applied to the brightest part of a flashlight’s beam. After you watch the video, you can use this new found knowledge along with the FL1 Standard that most reputable flashlight manufacturers provide these days to make a more educated decision on the type of light that you need for your application.
