The V1 Vampire is an ultra-compact, combat-ready dual-output flashlight
that provides both white light and infrared output without the need for
an IR filter. This ground- breaking handheld illumination tool features
virtually failure-proof power-regulated white and infrared LEDs and a
precision Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens that optimally shapes
both beams for reach and surround light.
The V1’s click-type tailcap switch—shrouded to help prevent accidental
activation—lets you quickly select an output level. In white light mode,
partially press the tailcap pushbutton for a momentary-on 120-lumen
high-output beam; press further to click constant-on high. Return to off
and press or click again within two seconds for 10-lumen low-output
beam with extended runtime.
To switch between white light, disable, and infrared modes you simply
pull then twist the front knurled portion of the bezel. The tailcap
switch again lets you easily select output levels in IR mode—partially
press for a momentary-on 100-milliwatt high-output beam, press further
to click constant-on high. Return to off and press or click again within
two seconds for a 5-milliwatt low IR beam.
The V1 Vampire runs on a single 123A lithium battery, is constructed of
aerospace aluminum that’s Mil-Spec hard anodized for extreme durability,
and is 0-ring and gasket sealed to keep out moisture. The V1 also
features a lockout tailcap, which prevents accidental activation during
storage or transport.
