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 lithium rechargeable batteries with this flashlight, which have a higher voltage. 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.
Purchased as a safety light, but I used it as a parked car locator... this is my second purchase after I gave my first to a good friend..
Nobody offers these. All of the Maratac lights are just quality pieces. The tripod mount base is a small but ideal feature. The machining just feels right. Dual power adds even more usability.
Add a 1/4"-20 magnet mount or clamp mount to this, and you've got a nearly perfect light for working on a car, in a server rack, or anywhere else you need to hang a light to get something done.
This is an excellent piece of kit. I love the simplicity of it, and the weight. Partly due to a large D battery it feels solid and robust. So far no issues.
I had recieved the tll as a gift and stuck it on my pocket on the way to the local hardware store. I picked up some batteries, popped one in and was blown away. My son and I fixed a washer and a dryer in a dimly lit basement. We both came to the conclusion that we both need to buy a few more. Great light with great runtime. Love it!
