The brand new TFX range is here, offering a series of tactical lights designed to provide high power and concentrated outputs. Although a new name in the industry, they are powered by Ledlenser, a trusted and reliable brand with over 20 years experience.
One of the more compact torches of the TFX series, the Propus 1200 utilises a cool white Xtreme LED with a colour temperature of 6500-7000 K to provide a maximum output of 1200 lumens, and a beam range of up to 20`0 metres on the high power setting. The tactically optimised reflector focuses a large part of the LED to create a central hot spot which can be good for blinding potential threats, while also providing spill lighting around the hot spot to illuminate surroundings for the ideal tactical beam profile.
The tactical tail switch has a U shaped design to help prevent accidental activation and controls all the functions of the torch. A full press of the tail switch will turn the light on and off, and once turned on the brightness level can also be selected by softly pressing the tail switch to cycle through high, mid, low. There is also a strobe function for tactical defence which can be activated with two quick soft presses of the button when the light is on.
A second user mode is also available that offers only the high output when turning the torch on/off. To switch between the modes simply soft press the button 10 times in quick succession while the light is on.
To install the included Ledlenser 3000 mAh 18650 lithium-ion battery the tail end unscrews to insert it with the positive end towards the head, and the tail cap can then be screwed back on as tight as it will go to ensure a good connection. The Propus 1200 can also be powered by two non-rechargeable CR123A batteries, which is useful if you run out of charge and require a back up power source, however never attempt to charge the torch with CR123A batteries installed.
Once installed the 18650 battery can be charged inside the torch via the micro USB point located on the tail cap. Remove the dust cover from the port to connect the micro USB end of the included cable, and the standard USB-A end plugs into a suitable USB port or adaptor. The LED indicator next to the button will glow red while charging is in progress and turn green to show charging is complete after approximately 3 hours, 30 minutes for a full charge (charging time varies depending on the USB output used). A low battery indicator will be triggered to remind you to charge the battery when it is almost depleted by flashing the white light 3 times every 5 minutes while turned on.
The impressive ingress protection offers a rating of IP68 making it fully resistant to solids and fully waterproof when submerged in water up to a depth of 2 metres for 30 minutes, and it is impact resistant up to 2 metres, so you know it can withstand the toughest of tactical applications. A wrist lanyard is included for extra security while carrying, and a nylon holster provides protection and easy belt carry when not in use.
