Tactical light question

I've looked at the Insight HX150R 150 lumen flashlight which replaced the H2X. Several places list it as rechargable whereas one says:

HX150R Arcturus :

High Intensity LED

Multiple operational modes (Constant, Momentary, Strobe, and Dimming)

Anodized aluminum construction

NOT Rechargeable

(http://www.impactguns.com/store/676812001766.html)

They have a very good price on it. Maybe they simply don't include the charger?

I don't know if they have fixed everything, but the track record is a bit suspect.

Link Here.

IMHO, for the money, you're better off with an OLIGHT M20, Fenix TK Series, or similar. A really good light can be had for $100-$120. You can run them on CR123's or rechargeable 18650. The CPF has a lot of info for you if you care to wade through it all.

You and they are, of course, referring to the H2X not the HX150R, which, at the time those were posted, had no track record at all. There are, of course, those who will declare that they are the same light with two different names.

I would stick with Stinger on this one. Also stay away from INOVA I had one and it was junk.

I can vouch for the Streamlight Strion C4 rechargeable. Excellent light without the Mall Ninja look. Very powerful and the body knurling gives an excellent grip.
