Q: Why is this light better? Why do I need this light?
A: The Series II is not “better.” it’s different. TigerLight started out with the original 11 inch long flashlight with pepper spray, designed primarily for and marketed to, police officers. It was voted to be the #1 rechargeable flashlight in the world by candlepowerforums.com,...view more a 15,000 member forum of “Flashaholics," crushing all major brands in the voting by nearly 2 to 1.
The original bulb was incandescent with about 375 lumens and amazing optics that enabled it to outperform lights claiming much higher lumens or candlepower. We upgraded the original TigerLight® to the Series II and III TigerLights with one dozen improvements. We later upgraded the incandescent light to a multi-mode LED with 600 lumens and a much longer run time and then to a 1,000 lumen module that can be put in the Series II or Series III.
We invested millions of dollars into the law enforcement and military market, culminating in a major contract with the Military that we spend 6 years obtaining.
The Sequestration deal during President Obama’s administration eliminated the funding the military had in place for the acquisition and that, along with a federal grant issued to our competitor, caused us to take the company in a different direction with the introduction of the D.A.D., with enhanced technology, designed for the general public.
We have thousands of very loyal police officers and who have been using the Series I, II and III TigerLights. These upgrades are for them. We do not have any Series II or III units in stock and are not in production on these models. We only offer Charging System, LED Module and Battery Pack replacements and upgrades, as well as pepper spray replacements canisters.
Although the Series II and III are incredible lights, the D.A.D.® 2 is far superior for everyday personal protection. When I’m out camping and we want to light up the forest and hear everyone exclaim, “WHAT THE HECK!” I take out my Series II or III. They are exactly the same except the Series III has a little most tactical, aggressive look from cutting more groves into the aircraft aluminum. The military chose the Series II.
I hope that helps. We’re sorry if we created any confusion. view less
