A single CR123A lithium battery powers the TLR-8‘s LED to deliver 4,300 candela and 500 lumens with an integrated 640-660nm red laser at the bottom for aiming. Optimized electronics provide regulated intensity.
It can be operated in three modes: laser-only, LED-only or dual mode using both light and laser. The runtime is 1.5 hours with the light or 18 hours with laser only. TLR-8 lights feature a one-handed, snap-on and tighten interface that keeps your hand clear of the muzzle when installing or detaching.
