To all flashlights fans, I would like to introduce to you the Jetbeam RRT-3 Raptor. This light is a beast! This monster has a range of 600+ yards and can provide enough light to spot someone nearly 1 mile away. Built like a tank, the RRT-3 can provide much needed light for military or law enforcement applications and sustain itself in rugged environments as needed.

8 Position Control Ring
Weapon Remote Adapter
3 x 18650 Li-ion rechargeables, 6 CR123, or 6 RCR123
HAIII Mil-spec anodized
Machined aluminum reflector
Mineral glass lens w/anti reflective coating
Capable of running for 1 hour on the highest output (1200 lumen) due to sufficient heat sink
***Handle & Rail Mount Not Included
MSRP for this light is $385. I will be selling it for $340, including shipping and 12 CR123 batteries. If you are interested in getting your hands on this light (that is, buying one), please let me know ASAP as I will need to pre-order it by this weekend. This light will be available sometime in mid/late April.
RRT-3 Raptor is at the upper right. The other two are the Jetbeam M1X (another great flashlight).

This flashlight, the Jetbeam Jet-I PRO V.3 just became my EDC (everyday carry) front pocket light replacing a much lesser quality chinese made light the I bought early last year sometime. The throw (the ability to project light over a distance) on this small of a light is incredible. And the fact that I can program each of the three modes to exactly the output is want, is a great plus. I also am using a 3.7V AA lithium rechargeable (also known as a 14500) in order to get the maximum output of 240 lumens (compared to 145 lumens on a regular or lithium AA). This light comes with either a warm tint led (renders colors better) or a cool tint (brighter, very white light). Anyone needing a small light that is ultra reliable, has great throw, very high output, long runtime, and light weight, I highly recommend this light. Besides the standard accessories, I will also include two lithium batteries and a holster (if, needed).
Cost is $75.00
The Jet-III Military is a very popular light among the military, police, and search and rescue. This light has a maximum output of 225 lumens with a runtime of 1, 2, or 3 hours depending on whether you are using rechargeable CR123 , regular Cr123, or an 18650 3.7V rechargeable lithium ion. On the opposite end of the output spectrum, this light will run for up to 200 hrs at just 2 lumens, which is great for reading at night. As you have read, this light has two modes. With the head tightened, the light is always on max. And the user can program the output they want with the head loosened from 2 – 225 lumens or from a slow strobe to a very fast disorienting strobe. Throw on this light is VERY impressive for a light of its size. You can light up anything within 200 meters (approx. 660 feet). I just recommend that you not light up your friends from close range, unless you trying to annoy them, which you will, or run away from them, which you may need to. Besides the standard accessories, I will also include four lithium batteries and a holster (if, needed).
Cost is $85.00
The Jetbeam RRT-0 Raptor is one of Jetbeams newest lights. You change levels by rotating the stainless steel control ring. Output ranges from 240 lumens on high to 1 lumen on lower low with runtimes of 45 min. to 100 hours. And it has an effective range of 200 meters.It uses a CR123/ R(echargeable)CR123 lithium but with the AA extension it can also use an alkaline, Ni-MH rechargeable, or a 3.7V lithium AA rechargeable. This light would make a great pistol light.
Besides the standard accessories, I will also include two lithium batteries of your choice (AA or CR123 lithium) and a holster (if, needed).
Cost for this light is $102.00
Jetbeams M1X is one light to behold, or in this case, hold. It is rated at 450 lumens with a range of 500+ yards, that over a 1/4 mile! And with the right batteries (3.7V 18650 lithium rechargeables), it will run for 3 hours on high and 300 hours (12.5 days!) on low. This light is programmed like the Jet-III M. High with the head tight and user programmable mode with head slightly loosened. Anyone needing a search light, anyone wanting to see across a field looking for livestock, or anyone that hunts at night (legally) needs to check this bad boy out. When you see this light in action, you might just stare in awe, just don’t stare into the light! Light includes the battery extension and four Cr123 batteries.
Cost for this light is $150.00
