Because there is no such thing as having too many backup options on the street, ASP has introduced its first triple-fuel flashlights; the Sentinel e3 and Sentinel X e3. These lights ship with a 16340 lithium-ion battery that recharges inside the light, providing a potent 400 lumens of output. If you don’t have the time or place to recharge, just swap out the rechargeable battery for a CR123A disposable cell. No CR123? No problem—you can also put in a common AA battery in a pinch, with no special adapter needed.
You give up some lumens as you work your way down through the backup battery options, but you’ll stay up and running. Like all ASP lights, the Sentinel is designed for real-world simplicity, with all light modes accessible via a single tail switch: A half press turns the light on in momentary mode, a full press/click takes it to constant-on. The “Double Tap” feature activates a low light setting on the Sentinel, or a strobe on the Sentinel X. These lights are also compatible with ASP’s optional hands-free, rotating Tactical Light Case, available separately.
