Customer Ratings & Reviews
Perfect small EDC light
This is my EDC pocket light and I use it regularly. 500 lumens is enough to temporarily blind someone I need to disorient, and the low setting is perfect for those, "Where did that thing I dropped roll off to" moments. If you don't normally have a flashlight in your pocket, there will come a day when you'll wish you had. It's not if, it's when. I don't like to have a bunch of "stuff" in my pockets, especially since women's pants typically has micro-sized pockets. The Streamlight ProTac 2L-X light is powerful enough to do whatever I need to do with it, find stuff, shoot at night, look in nooks and crannies.
Great for daily carry
I've had this Streamlight protac 2l-x for over a month. I bought the rechargeable unit because I already have 18650-style batteries from other projects, making it easy to swap batteries out if needed. The truth is, even with heavy use, I'm not even certain how long the batteries last -- I've gone over a week on a single battery charge and opted to swap the battery just to even out the usage of the cells. I'm happy that there's a way to toggle between low and high, and I'm also glad that it can be programmed to start at the "low" setting -- oftentimes the high power is just too bright for what I need. I'd buy it again if I needed to.
Very Bright Tactical Light
I had purchased a cheaper "LED Tactical Light" on Amazon previously. I bought 4 of them because they were so cheap but later learned why. All broke from small drops (by my daughter). So I wanted to find a higher quality replacement without breaking the bank. The Streamlight ProTac 2L-X might fit the bill, and it it exceeded my expectations. This 500 Lumen light is so much brighter than the previous 900 Lumen light. It's "night and day." No pun intended. I'm amazed at how bright it is. Excellent quality as well.
Brite and best switch operation and rechargeable flashlight
Very bright. The streamlight protac 2l-x is an excellent EDC light with a fixed beam that has a bright flood with the super bright center beam. Finally, a properly designed switch. If you want it on you, click it once (or for momentary use, lightly hold. Off click it once or release(for momentary operation). No more stupid toggling between mode every time. Default programming is one tap is brite, two taps are strobe, and three taps are dim. Fast and simple. Well built light. Initially, i didn't think i was going to like the charger port being on the battery...but the runtime is so good on this light you don't have to charge it very often, and that's how they make it waterproof.
It’s still comfortable in carrying in my pocket and the brightness on
This is my second Streamlight flashlight, and I’m just as impressed with this ProTac 2l-x model as I was with the ProTac 1L-1AA. The 2L is maybe a little more than an inch longer than the 1AA, and the diameter is around the size of a quarter. It’s still comfortable carrying in my pocket, and the brightness on this thing is incredible. My main reason for buying this was it being a self-defense flashlight. While the 1AA is bright enough to blind, this one will be more effective. Another plus is being able to use a rechargeable battery as you can’t do the same with the 1AA. Very happy with my purchase.
The Streamlight protac 2l-x is very well made, definitely not the brightest light in this size category, but makes up for it with excellent utility, pocket clip can double as a hat bill clip for hands-free use (slightly heavy though, make sure your hat fits snug) and with standard cr123s battery life is excellent on low setting (I programmed mine for low/high mode and it's lasted about three weeks on a single set with reasonably heavy use) definitely would recommend
Awesome 500 lumen flashlight
500 lumens strong plus the versatility to select a 18650 rechargeable battery vs. CR 126A. Excellent performance in a sensibly priced product. The Streamlight ProTac 2L-X far superior to Surefire products considering the price differential.
Great light for the money
I love this Streamlight ProTac 2L-X Flashlight. I use it every day. The three setting 500-50-strive are useful. Having 50 lumens setting is helpful for close up work as you won't get blinded. The pocket clip is great-prevents from rolling away, will clip into a pocket so you will never fish for it and it also clips into the bill of your hat so you can use as a headlamp. I'm a builder, and I use this light for work every day. The ability to use 18650 rechargeable batteries has caused this light to replace my 6PX as my daily use light. I think the 6PX is built more solidly, but this has a more usable feature. Buy it!
Streamlight designs its flashlight in such a way that it is customized to a particular profession or purpose. Hunters love the Streamlight Stinger series in a compact package for their super-bright results, yet are also rechargeable and almost indestructible. Law enforcement and the shooting community love the Streamlight TLR Series bright light, toughness, and long-lasting quality. Based on the success of the Streamlight TLR-1 light, they have made several newer versions like the Streamlight TLR-2 weapon light with Laser. Now, Streamlight has produced the TLR-3, TLR-4, TLR-6, TLR-7 and TLR-8 tactical flashlights. The Streamlight stylus pro has been designed for those who need a bright LED light in difficulty reaching nooks and crannies, such as the engine interiors that mechanics need to see or the different angles of a crime scene that forensic specialists need to inspect. Whatever the specifications, Streamlight aims to provide you with the best lighting solution possible. The bottom line is this - if you want a flashlight that is there for you every shift, holds a charge all night and puts out plenty of light in police or tactical situations, you can't go wrong with a Streamlight brand light.
