The next generation of Forensic Light Sources: more powerful, longer battery life, smaller and lighter. The sleek design of the Flare Plus2 fits comfortably into the hand and allows the thumb to control the multi-function reed switch collar. The reed switch controls ON/OFF, intensity of output (5 steps), strobing, safety locking and SOS. The unit is coated with a fluro-polymer for easy cleaning. It is brighter than any other hand held battery system. Lithium batteries can last up to 33 hours per charge (on 35% power) and 5 hours on full power. This device is waterproof and is submersible up to 300 feet.
