Compact, Powerful, Adaptable, Durable - And Affordable
The compact, amazingly powerful BVL530 is the light to have when you need emergency or supplemental lighting. At less than 5-1/2" long, it’s small enough to go with you everywhere, so you’ll have it whenever you need it. Don’t be deceived by the size - the BVL530 delivers power that belies its small stature. An ultra-reliable, shockproof, CREE® XM-L2 LED emitter gives an astonishing 530 lumens maximum output that will illuminate the darkest corners. The Low (175 lumen) mode is brighter than "high" mode on a lot of other lights, and there’s a power-saving Ultra-Low (13 lumen) mode, too. High mode can be set to steady-on or strobe. Change modes by hitting a simple sequence of "clicks" on the sealed rubber tailcap switch.
All this power sticks around, too: you get up to 2.5 hours continuous output in High mode, and an amazing 9 hours in Low.
The rugged, machined aluminum body is 1” wide, so it'll fit a lot of popular gun mounts, and O-ring sealed to make it waterproof. It’s topped with a stainless steel “strike” bezel for emergency self-defense. The light runs on two readily available CR-123A lithium batteries (not included) because so many law enforcement, military, and civilian shooters already have devices that use those.
Includes accessories to help you customize your BVL530 to your needs: a spring-steel pocket clip and a free-spinning lanyard loop that rotates a full 360° so the lanyard (also included) won’t get tangled. There's a silicone rubber ring that slides over the body to serve as a finger stop when employing the popular “syringe” grip technique. All of these items are easily installed and removed as you need them.
