LAPD's standard issue light: The Pelican 7060 LED light employs new dual switch technology that allows the light to be activated by either a body-mounted patrol switch or a tail-mounted tactical switch. The dual switches, which include a momentary mode, allows the user to grip the light in several positions and still control activation. The light incorporates rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries for maximum brightness and are also light weight compared to standard batteries.

    I was lucky enough to buy this light for under $150. I must say that this light is well worth the money. It is extremely bright, and last for a really long time. Its extremly light weight and has 2 on/off buttons which make it a great light to use while having your duty gun in hand.

    I was absolutely stunned by the power of this small flashlight! Granted, I am an old Streamlight, Maglight and Surfire chronie... plus, I was also rebellious of Los Angeles telling me which flashlight I could or could not utilize in the field. I mean for goodness sakes, it is my safety they are playing with!!!! Well, I was pleasantly surprised when I put this light in my hand. You know that part in the movie "Men in Black" where Tommy Lee Jones hands Will Smith this tiny gun? Yea, Will thinks it is a wimpy gun because of its size, yet gets knocked back about twenty feet due to its firepower? That is sort of the same feeling you get when you compare this flashlight to its larger brothers. It definitely puts out a mean beam of light. Luckily, we received these flashlights for free, along with chargers and all of the patrol cars have built in chargers and even our detective vehicles have chargers. What's more is that they are all serialized so that even if you lose one, you more than likely will not lose it for very long, unlike the other flashlights that were taken, engraved, re-engraved and painted.... The only thing that I can say about this flashlight, is to try it and see what you think.

    This is by far the most revolutionary flashlight on the market for the price. I've had old/new Streamlight and Surefire flashlights in the past. I think Surefire is close but they don't have a "click on" feature, which moves them behind Pelican. This light is so bright and clear it's amazing. Streamlight made a valiant attempt but there is no way it will hold up to the Pelican at the price the Pelican is at. We are now issuing them to each new officer we hire, and replacing lost or broken lights with the new Pelicans.

    Best light ever made...Period! Streamlight, Surefire not even Blackhawk or Inova come close to being able to put out this amount of light! It is completely blinding and able to light up entire large rooms! Officer safety begins with training and good equipment and odds are that your light will save your life more times than your weapon so why trust your life to anything less than the best! It's not cheap but how much is your life worth!?

    I did a side-by-side comparison of the Pelican 7060 and my Stinger. The 7060 was so much brighter and lighter, I ordered one immediately. The single LED element sends out a briliant white light that illuminates the darkest allley or room. I received it today and will be carrying it tonight. My personal safety is well worth the price!

    I bought this light about 6 months ago and have really been impressed. The brightness is brighter than all of my other officers flashlights - they cannot believe it comes in such a small package. It carries well on the duty belt. The hexagonal shape stops it from rolling around when you put it down. Excellent value.

    While on a ridealong with LAPD's Air Support Division, this light can be seen from our orbit of 700 feet above. Definitely a must have, great charge life, bulb intensity, and lightweight.....
    Pelican's best to date.

    Excellent light, slightly large, but it's one of the first CREE powered LED lights to hit the market, and is very rugged. The fact it's rechargeable is excellent. And it lasts me my entire 12 hour night shift. I'm sure it would easily last me two or three night shifts but I still throw it on the charger, and it's normally charged before I hit the bed in the morning.

    Only gripe I have is the lens scratches really easily. I've taken excellent care of my light (as with my other lights, being a light fanatic) and it still scratched. I haven't contacted customer service yet, so we'll see.

    I do like the fact it comes with a holster. My suggestion is to look around, you can find it for lower than $140...

    The light is very lighweight and manageable. It puts out a great deal of light and is durable except for the end cap. The only drawback is that there is no warning when the battery is about to die.

    Best warranty in the business. You break it, they replace it, no questions asked. This is the company that makes the rigid combat cases for military sensors and other fragile items that must be transported to battle without damage. You can run over this flashlight with a truck and it still works. Two switches; one near head, one in tail cap with momentary on. Easy to "strobe" to distract a potential problem subject. Call me at (941) 780-8713 if you need more info.

    I was so impressed by this Flashlight that I am now stocking it in the UK at GAFFYR'S GADGETS.
    They are better than my Black Hawk Gladius, brighter & a lot cheaper.
    Batteries last for ages & the brightness is incredible, also very reliable
    The lifetime warranty really sells it !

    for it's size and price, you simply cannot get a better light. i have dropped this flashlight off a 4 story building, ran it over with a pickup, beat in the window of a car, and used it daily for almost a year. it still looks and works like the day i bought it. the battery shows no signs of losing charge. and the fact that this thing COMES WITH A DUTY CASE, you simply cannot top it.

    This is the light you need. Most places offer it for less than the $150.00 list price. It's a bit larger than a stinger but, much brighter too. It doesn't dim when the battery is low, the light will blink to let you know. Very rugged, doesn't roll if you set it down...So far, the best light for everyday duty I've ever used.

    I have been in Law Enforcement for several years and about 4 years on the street, I have used several different types of lights and always wanted one that was bright and easy to carry in a cargo pocket or on the belt. I was assisted by another from another agency during a night search and he used this light. It sold me, I found this light for $105 on the net, new in box. Its extremely bright and still light weight. Pelican makes good products, I think allot of thought I was placed in to this product, and I highly recommend it to any Officer or Deputy.

    I've been using tactical lights since 2001 in the military and have used a lot of lights. This 7060 is the brightlest light I have yet to carry on a belt. This thing works for two 40 hour weeks before I need to charge it.

    Drawback. It's too damn bright to search cars and do "under the influence" observations. It blind you and the poor SOB getting tested.

    I bought this flashlight last November as a back up and now carry it as a primary. It is lighweight, very bright and it holds a charge for a long time. The light comes with a holster for your duty belt and the home charger. I picked mine up for $120.00 at Adamson's Police Supply in Hayward.

    This is the BEST flashlight that I have ever owned. I've stopped carrying my cruiser mounted flashlight (Streamlight) and I rely solely on my 7060. It's blinding to suspects and has never run out on me during a shift (and we work 12s). I was skeptical about it at first, but after using it I would never go back.

    Only one complaint... the tail cap switch should be recessed a little. Other than that It's about the perfect light. Great run time and no battery memory and it's bright enough that it will hurt you. I would buy it again without question.

    This has to be the most usable, bright flashlight on the market. I was one of the first to be issued one of these in my department. toke it to school with me and it outperforms even the more expensive Streamlights. This is the greatest lights for building clearing, lights up most rooms completly. I can't wait for the 8060......

    Very nice flashlight! Compared to other flashlights I have used, this one is the brightest I have ever seen!

    Only down side is that there isn't a closed case that it will fit in, making it easy for jealous co-workers to swipe it from your belt.

    When the first guy on the departmnt bought his all of us had a little light battle to see how had the brightest light and he won hands down. I got mine a week later and he walked up on one of my stops while I still carried my stinger and lit up the whole car. Now Pelican is coming out with a brighter larger version, for a bit more change.

    Best light I have had to date. It is by far brighter than than any of my other lights and lasts the longest. I also got it under the $150.00 suggested price and being it comes with the holster as well, Its a deal hard to beat. My "only" compliant is the tail cap button needs to be recessed more.
    I am always turning it on when seated in a car. Not a problem at any other time.

    I'll have to hide this from my 3 year old. After he lost my Stinger LED I about died. I got this one and love it. I'm going to have him loose my back up Stinger so I can get another Pelican. One can't go wrong with this light. Light weight with a ton of power.

    All I have to say about this flashlight is WOW!! I have had a Stinger XT for about 3 years now and always thought it was pretty good. The battery on the Stinger finally went out and I decided I would upgrade to a LED light. I found the Pelican 7060 for around $140 and it is worth every penny! This light is great, it is super bright, holds a charge for a long period of time even after a considerable amount of use. One great feature of this light is the squred off head allowing you to place the flashlight on yor hood of your patro car without having to worry about it rolling off while dealing with a suspect. I can't say enough about the flashlight.

    I'm a midnight guy, and I've used so many lights for patrol in the past but the Pelican 7060 is by far the baron of all tactical patrol flashlights! I bought it about a year ago & a lot of other cops in my precinct & from other commands see my 7060 on my belt & wonder what kind of contraption I was carrying. When I showed them the power it packs, they were blown away by the 7060's weight & feel, as well as the light intensity it throws. It's rechargeable (saves a lot of money recharging it, rather to have a light where you have the replace the battery every week during heavy use), plus the lifetime warranty of cannot be beat. Yeah it's pricey, but it's well worth the investment. Even some of the younger rooks bought this light & gave it rave reviews. So if you're a 4x12 or a midnight guy, this flashlight is for you!

    This is the best flashlight I have ever used in 7 years of patrol. It is way more tough. I have dropped it tons of times with no damage beyond a scratch. It lasts way longer than the Streamlights and sure is way brighter! The dual side and bottom buttons are awesome too. I paid $120 at a Interstate Safey in Sparks, NV.

    Overall a fantastic light, very lightweight and bright. My only complaint is that you only get two or three "warning" flashes before the light shuts off due to battery drain. I don't keep my light in the charger, so it would help to have a bit more warning before the light becomes a paperweight.

    I have used other lights and while they were okay, this one sets the standard for LED Brightness for its size. Love it. I have beat the heck out of it and it is still going strong after 3 years and I still have not had to change the bulb or the battery. Recommend it for anyone needing a lot of light and easy on/off switches.

    Very bright, great battery life, feels good in your hand.

    Two minor gripes: 1, I wish it was about an inch or two shorter...a little long for a flashlight that stays on your belt. 2, the tailcap cracked within a month on the road. In Pelican's defense thought I contacted them and I had a new tailcap in a and no questions asked. New tailcap has had no problems for over a year.

    Overall, good stuff!

    This is a very good light. It is issued to deputies working the night shift in with our agency. Very sturdy, durable, and convenient to use. The only drawbacks that I have are: 1) it gets very hot if used for a long steady duration and 2) it takes an extended time to recharge. The recharge time is not that big of a deal, however, when called right back out for a situation, this could be an issue. I highly recommend this light. It also does a very good job on maintaining its charge.
