Wuben T1 Tactical Flashlight

A tactical flashlight is an important tool for keeping safe, self-defence and for being prepared in emergencies.

Tactical flashlights were originally made for aiding firearms to identify targets in low light environments.  They were primarily designed from law enforcement, security and military professionals. However, tactical flashlights do not need to be used alongside firearms, in fact they are often used as every day carry (EDC) flashlights by people who are not in the above mentioned professions because they are normally made with high quality and durable materials and tend to be powerful whilst remaining compact!

We will look are properties that make a flashlight tactical below:

Brightness:   Tactical flashlights need the ability to illuminate areas to investigate and get the attention of potential assailants.  They must also have the  ability to disorientate potential attackers, by temporarily blinding and making them turn away when the light is shined in their eyes.  Because of this, most tactical flashlights have an output greater than 1000 lumens.

Quick and easy operation: Tactical flashlights often have a tail switches to make it easy find the button and operate quickly, especially when also using a firearm. Side buttons tend to be more difficult to find in the dark because the flashlight will have to be positioned the correct way.  Some tactical flashlights have both tail and side switches.

Lightweight: Modern tactical flashlights have a size and weight to enable one hand operation and be easily carried in a holster or pocket.

Range of settings: There are two types of on settings - momentary-on and constant-on.  Momentary-on means only having to slightly press the button to turn it on and it will turn off as soon as the button is released.  Constant-on means clicking the button so it stays on.

Tactical flashlights also normally have strobe and SOS modes along with output settings High, Low, Medium, Low and Eco modes. Strobe is a mode to disorientate and cause an assailant to feel nauseous.  As well as temporarily blinding , strobe also makes the person feel uncomfortable due to the principle of 'flicker vertigo' (also known as the 'Bucha effect') which is when light with a frequency of 1-20 Hz, which is the same as that of brainwaves, causes feelings of sickness.  When the assailant feels this way due to strobe, it gives time to the flashlight user to subdue or escape from the assailant.

The Wuben T1 has a unique tail-switch - which has both momentary-on and constant-on modes but when pressed to the left or right is always ready to strobe at 2000 lumens!

Reliability: Long run times should are essential for night shifts and the tactical flashlight should also be easy to recharge, for example with a USB-C cable.  To ensure that the flashlight can withstand severe weather, it should ideally be IP68 waterproof rated which means it can be submerged in 2m underwater for 1 hour. It should also be impact resistant for drops of at least 1.5m.

Strike bezels: Tactical flashlights can be used to strike an assailant with its hardened bezel which helps with self-defence.  The bezel can also be used to break glass.   

Tactical Mode & Outdoor Mode

Easy switching between the two modes to meet your needs at any time.

Using a tactical flashlight for self-defence

  • The FBI technique is a well known method to use a tactical flashlight to help you hide your location and trick potential attackers. To do this, hold the tactical flashlight away from your body and direct the beam in a different direction.
  • The flash and scan technique requires a flashlight that’s either momentarily-on or has a fast on-off switch.  It does not work if you have to scroll through lighting modes to turn off your flashlight. To do the flash and scan technique:
    • Stand still
    • Shine the flashlight
    • Quickly observe the area and look for threats and obstacles to form a mental map
    • Turn the flashlight off
    • Move, using that mental map
    • Repeat
    • If you see a threat, move in a fast and unpredictable way
    • An assailant is likely to attack your last known position, which is where your light was shining from
  • If an assailant is trying to attack you, shine the beam directly into his eyes. This will temporarily blind him.  At this point you can either escape or crack him in the face with the strike bezel or kick him in the groin!  The chin is an effective strike area and if you are taller than the assailant, it is easier for you to strike the temple.
  • If you are armed with a gun, the tactical flashlight will help you to aim.

Remember, you do not have to work in a security related profession to benefit from having a tactical flashlight! They are excellent for everyday carry use as well as for camping and hiking as they are durable, compact and have long lasting batteries! Also if they are IP68 rated, they can even be used for SCUBA diving!
