If your contingency plan locker has stacks of AA batteries, you'll love this little tactical light. The Charge can be mounted on a helmet, headstrap, MOLLE/PALS or Picatinny rail and provides a range of colours to light your way through darkness.

With three small LEDs and a white MaxBright led and a gooseneck boom for directing the light, the Charge provides what you need and where you need it. The operating button and battery door latch are large and recessed for ease of operation. With batteries you don't have to rely on any electricity network to charge the torch, just keep a few extra batteries with you.

MPLS means that a bunch of attaching adapters are included.

Functions and features

This light has some options for special purposes, but overall simplicity is retained really well.

Basic features

  • Four modes
  • Red comes on first
  • Easy adjustment in any direction
  • Adjustable elastic headband
  • Can be attached to 25 mm (1") webbing, side of helmet or various rails

Button functions

Even if you're a mouth-breather and your lips move when you read, you'll do fine with this torch.

  1. A single press always turns the light on or off
  2. A quick follow-up press changes colour
  3. A longer press switches from colour lights to white
  4. A longer press in white mode offers stepless dimming and brightening. A flash indicates reaching either end of the range.
  5. When the light is off, a longer press turns the light on in IR mode

To go through your backpack, read a map or check the trail immediately before your eyes, a red setting is best, so it's the primary mode. There's no "previous mode memory", so the functions are always the same and you get used to them quickly.

Modular Personal Lighting System

Enough straps on your gear? Clip the torch on your head, helmet or plate carrier with various options: The light itself mounts directly to ARC rails. Adapters for above rail, EXFIL and Picatinny rails as well as two PALS (MOLLE) brackets (0 and 90 degrees) and headstrap are all included with the Charge MPLS.
