This light package contains a PLHv2-light head, 18650 handheld body and tail cap. It also includes one Modlite 3500mAh 18650 battery and a XTAR MC2 charger. While lumen output with this light is similar to the Surefire® M600DF head, the throw is much better suited to allow PID (Positive ID) at greater distances at more than three times the amount throw than the M600DF. This light is a large step forward from the PLHv1 light. Lumen output is about the same but throw is greatly improved. It is the best balance of flood and throw available.

    This is my third modlite that I’ve ordered. I absolutely love the utility from indoors to outdoors. Works great with the batteries and is ina convenient form factor for hiking.

    This is a great handheld. Super bright with a nice hotspot and spill too. I was majorly on the fence as to whether to get the PLHV2 or OKW head but feel the PLH is great for most uses. I’ll be getting Modlites from now on. Rooftop shipped super fast!

    Pretty awesome light and superb dealer. Use to be stream light guy because the were “good enough”. Was looking for a solid handheld defensive light as I was used to carrying a SL micro stream. I tried the stream light duel fuel protac and it was kinda trash, apparent even to someone on the bandwagon. Was not abused but still died, probably something to do with its “ten tap” options….anyway, Spending this much on a flashlight was definitely a hard sell but consider it’s about half the price of a quality handgun and honestly, can solve way more problems. Also, if you are considering one to mount on a rifle, but don’t have a solid handheld, I’d say get the handheld as it will be in your pocket more often and be of more use than a on a rifle left back home
