2 Modes ( Constant Low / Constant High )
Kit Includes - Battery Holder So You Can Select 4xAA's or a Single D-Cell to Power Your Light & Enough Spare Orings To last You A Lifetime
The 1D was developed based on our proven TLL platform to provide amazing throw and runtimes on a single D Cell or even 4 AA Batteries. Once we started fielding the 1D, we quickly discovered that they had more uses that did not include aircraft. Here’s some of the ways we are using the 1D around here:
It makes a great camping lantern. It illuminates the entire tent on low power and provides a nice reading light.
When camping, I gave one to my little girl. It’s big enough where she won’t lose it and rugged enough so she can’t break it. She can sit it down on it’s flat bottom and use the light. Probably most importantly, I don’t worry about her draining the battery. The 1D belongs in every “GO Bag”, car, boat, first aid kit, actually every where. If you set up emergency LZs for a living, you may already know about the versatility of the 1D, If not think of all the places where you could use one.
A Note From The Legal Department: As with all cool stuff, “battery not included”. We do not recommend the use of higher rated voltage lithium cells rechargeable batteries with this flashlight. It is designed to use a off the shelf Alkaline, Eneloop & Lithium. Any attempt to modify these lights will void the warranty. No battery or tripod included.
Arrived one day sooner than expected. Very high quality and I really like the option of using either a single D cell or the four AA cells. It’s a little large for EDC but I really like this one!
Chose this flashlight to replace one of another type which was stolen from my car. While no lightweight, this flashlight (using the D cell) is both shorter and somewhat lighter than the one it replaces. It fits my hand well thus making it easy to use and it throws a bright focused beam which should last for a long time because of the D cell. Very easy to recommend for a purpose such as this.
Matches my D Cell Landing lights that we use around camp. Love Maratac quality machining and heft.
I was quite pleased with the form factor of the 1D upon its arrival, obviously as others said, it's no carrier except maybe in your gobag. A nice light in the hand and quite bright with just the plain old, find 'em cheap anywhere, D batterys; BUT, when I dropped the AAs in their carrier and inserted into the light BOOM, talk about a room lighter! It would appear the momentary function was possibly an accidental product of design but it does work well, sans having a comfy rubber boot, but I will note, a McClicky boot is the perfect diameter to fit on the protrusion of the tailcap over where the tripod mounting hole is, just haven't figured out how to properly attach it yet. I did find that if you align the flats of the tailcap up with flats of the body, that's the easy way to get it into a momentary mode. Shame that the GITD o-ring found under the lens retaining ring isn't visible. Oh, and I like that multiple lanyard holes are provided too. Great light, nice fit-n-finish.
