A powerful focused beam at night, at short range for a couple of seconds is very dis-orienting. The idea of a small laser incorporated is interesting. As flashlights get more powerful it is conceivable that they could be a viable less than lethal alternative for some folks. A bright light certainly can buy you a couple seconds to move away, break contact etc. A couple hundred lumens focused about the side of a soda can at 10 feet would make anyone look away shined in their eyes, you can always use it for a couple seconds then off and back on again, their pupils would get whiplash!
