Need help deciding for weapon mount lights

Recommended Posts

Thank you everyone for gathering around the round table. I need help figuring out on what to get for my weapon light. 

The reason I want one is for hunting or weird noises/critters in my back yard, I live on an acre of land.

I have two options for myself. Streamlight HLX vs Modlite OKW. 

Streamlight ProTac Rail Mount HL-X 1000 Lumen Weapon Light with Tapeswitch $93.54 with Cloud Defensive LCS Streamlight Pro-Tac Tape Switch Picatinny Mount - Black $62.43

  • Duel fuel system can be powered by (2) CR123A lithium battery or (1) Streamlight 18650 rechargeable
  • IPX7 water proof to 1 meter for thirty minutes and impact tested to 2 meters with standard button switch
  • IPX4 water resistant with remote pressure switch
  • Limited lifetime warranty through Streamlight
  • Includes: Push-button tail cap, remote pressure switch, remote switch retaining clips, double sided tape, zip ties, and (2) CR123A batteries 

Modlite Systems OKW-18650 Complete Light $277.20

  • 75 minute runtime with 18650
  • Includes two 18650 KeepPower rechargeable batteries
  • Includes Nitecore D2 charger
  • Assembled in the U.S.A. with lifetime guarantee 


Streamlight cons: 

50/50 on Liability 

Pressure switch may have a problem 

Bad in distance wise

Doesn't come with rechargable 18650 and charger. 

Modlite cons: 

expensive, like $121.23 more, and I might have to add surefire pressure switch.

Doesn't come with pressure switch

Just a little less run time than HLX. 


Any advice is appreciated.
