The HP230 uses a highly-efficient, recoil-proof L.E.D. to generate 230 lumens of blinding white light. Light of this magnitude is enough to dominate an aggressor's night-adapted vision, so it's ideal for military, law enforcement and self-defense use. The reflector lens tightly focuses the beam for long distance lighting, while also producing enough light to support the user's peripheral vision. The HP230's batteries will produce 3 hours of continuous illumination. The compact body is constructed of aircraft-grade anodized aluminum, making it a lightweight yet powerful light source.
