3 Modes ( High Constant On / Low Constant On / Strobe )
Includes Glow Retainer Ring
The TLL ( Temporary Landing Light ) STROBE was developed as a safe alternative to using flares to rapidly set up and mark LZs (Landing Zones) in emergency situations. Once we started fielding the TLL, we quickly discovered that they had more uses that did not include aircraft. Here’s some of the ways we are using the TLL around here:
The strobe marks our duck blind to help us find it early in the morning.
It makes a great camping lantern. It illuminates the entire tent on low power and provides a nice reading light.
When going to a local football game, I left a TLL strobing in my car. When the game was over later that night, I had no problems finding my car. One of the security officers asked me about the flashing. He said the bright light brought their attention to my car. I consider the extra attention from the security staff a free bonus.
When camping, I gave one to my little girl. It’s big enough where she won’t loose 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 TLL 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 TLL, If not think of all the places where you could use one.
Using a single Duracell D Cell battery we got the following results:
A Note From The Legal Department: As with all cool stuff, “battery not included”. We do not recommend the use of Rechargable batteries with this flashlight. It is designed to use a off the shelf alkaline & lithium. We do not recommend use of higher voltage batteries. Any attempt to modify these lights will void the warranty.
No battery or tripod included.
Light is bright, strobe works great. Light Diffusion is great as well - even distribution both on Low and High. Places on the bottom for a lanyard or a Tripod Mount. Great light to add to the vehicle or Emergency Go-Bag.
A lot of uses for this torch cum lantern with strobe. A truly multi-functioning light Call flashlights torches in the UK
Having purchased an older version 5+ years ago I knew these lights were functional and proved useful in multiple situations. When I saw REV 3 go on sale, right after lending mine out to family members that were impacted by hurricane Michael (power only), I couldn't resist and bought more. Assuming you keep D batteries on hand, having at least one of these available makes a lot of sense. They are much more handy with the tripod that used to be available on CountyComm but I found a few on a discount website for less than $10 each. These lights are EXCELLENT and even more useful with a tripod. Solid construction and built to last!
Brighter. Longer run time. And more girth. What’s not to like?
Seriously, it’s a great D cell marker/lantern offered by County Comm
I like the original 4QK35 version the best that I bought a few years back. That one felt a little bit heavier, and this version feels a tiny bit lighter. However, the newer version is a tad bit brighter and has the glow retainer ring where you needed to add a little height - nice added feature. I wish it felt a little heavier, but it's close. Most people would probably prefer it being lighter in weight.
Overall, It works great and worth the money.
Great light, great quality and a great CountyComm/Maratac product. I would suggest the markings "MARATAC" and "CAGE:5VKB6" be kept in smaller print like the original version.
