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.
This solid little chunk of anodized aluminum reminds me of the old 4- and 5-cell Maglights. Only this one is a lot shorter. And brighter. And runs a whole lot longer.
I don't think this beast would notice if you ran over it with a pickup truck. On the other hand, a leaking alkaline battery could easily ruin it. I'll be feeding mine lithium AAs, not an alkaline D.
Perfect light for a host of uses. A single D size battery is always available and lasts quite a long time in the Led light. My favorite feature is the 1/4 20 thread on the bottom. First use I had the light mounted on camera tripod while changing light fixtures in a dark basement, as obviously I had to cut the power toward that end. Plenty of light to fix the lights, couldn't ask for more out of a light this size.
I got the D-Cell size and it handles so nicely. Fits your hand comfortably and is a good weight. Use it around the house and have been nothing but pleased. Rugged construction. Cool option to use the AA adapter if needed.
The biggest selling point for this flashlight is its versatility - D cell or AA batteries, something you won't find with any other flashlight. Like all Maratac lights, this one is well made; very, very bright; and durable to the point of being indestructible. It's not lightweight, but if you're packing a D cell flashlight, weight isn't your primary concern anyway. Highly recommended.
