ModButton Lite is a smaller lighter weight cousin to the original ModButton. The switch features the same momentary only activation as the original ModButton. It also features the same high power cable and switch from ModButton but in a slightly smaller package without the integrated mount. The switch is made from injection molded plastic and fully potted to provide extra degree of protection in harsh environments and ensures a durable long lasting switch.

ModButton Lite utilizes a patented Unity Tactical design which supports power delivery needed by the next generation of high output weapon lights like Modlite. A Unity built Surefire® compatible cable lead allows ModButton Lite to be backwardly compatible with all Surefire®, Arisaka and Modlite Scout bodies as well as Surefire UE and DS00 tail caps. If constant on is a requirement we recommend using a SF DS00 tail cap which can be found here.

One problem that exists today is older legacy switches are not able to pass the current needed to run current and future generation lights. These older switch designs do not allow Modlite light heads to run at full power. Typically these switches reduce output by 15-20%. ModButton Lite utilizes an updated plug design as well as improved electronics that allow the ModButton Lite to output at full power so all the lumens and candela can be put to good use.

Note on cable length options: For almost all use cases the 4.5in variant is what you want to buy. Unless you have a special setup the 4.5 in cable is going to be plenty even running a laser.

    With a fixed front sight and peq on top of a mk18 risii, a surefire dual pressure pad takes up every little bit of extra space. Gave this a go along with the laser switch, takes up at most 3/4 of the footprint. Worth the savings (but not in the wallet!)

    Another great option for remote switches. If you are experiencing flickering with these or any other switches while using UE or DS tailcaps, try adding so dielectric grease to the prongs and that seems to have solved the problem for me.

    Nothing wrong with Rooftop Defense on the sale or storefront. Mod Button experienced the same flickering issue as previously mentioned in another review. It hasn’t completely stopped working, but it is still an irritation.
