The newest generation of the Peli 1920 is quite cool, and it’s a great flashlight (almost doubling the output while keeping the same battery lifetime), but the original one was a near perfect tactical flashlight : cheap, strong, rugged, simple, with the right output (around 60/70 lumens) to be used in the kind of situation that request a tactical flashlight.

The new one is neat to use on a daily basis, with the high beam to reach out far away in the dark, and the low beam (12 lumens, around 10 hours of light) great for lurking inside buildings.

I really hope that Pelican will provide us with something like a 1919 flashlight, with only one mode and an output similar to the first generation (but doubling the autonomy). That would be great.
