This light package contains a PLHv2-light head, 18650 body and tail cap. It also includes a single KeepPower 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 a rifle mounted application 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. Is is the best balance of flood and throw available.

If you’re looking for the best overall output and throw this is the package you want. We also offer the same light in a shorter package with our 18350 body.

    Brightest light out there, and at a great price too. Shipped almost immediately.

    Charging up the batteries as I write this. But this is more so a review of the company. Everything arrived quickly and with great customer support. I ordered on a Thursday night and received it on a Saturday morning. Everything was as expected, I will definitely be ordering a lot more from Sol. Can’t recommend Rooftop Defense enough. Will spread the love to my friends as my go to resource. Thanks again.

    Outstanding company, highly recommend. Light arrived fast, and packaged well. Exactly what I ordered, and more! Thanks for the ramen and the US constitution booklet. We need more companies like this!

    Amazing light and company, even past 150 yards lighting up my neighbors shitbox car the hotspot of the light is brighter than the streetlights. Product shipped extremely fast and the small personal touches in the box were hilarious. Absolutely recommend this product as well as rooftop defense.

    Badass light. Throws over 200 meters and looks sick on my BCM.
    The free meal included with purchase and the handwritten note is a nice touch.

    Buy this over a Surefire and for less while it’s on sale.

    Perfect light to start with if you are new to Modlight.

    Modlight: bomb proof build and functionality. Paired this with a Mod Button, and Surefire UE tailcap. Currently have the whole thing mounted to my Geissele Super Duty on an Arisaka mount, and have had zero issues with it.

    Light is strong, throws far and tight. Very pleased with light, and have picked up two more since.

    Best Rifle Light out there. Extremely happy with my order, fast shipping, excellent customer service, extremely responsive with questions.

  8. bwalters0921 (verified owner)

    Great light (has a nice flood pattern while maintaining outstanding throw) great price, and great customer service.

    Buy it as a combo here by selecting the SF UE cap, Arisaka mount (of your choosing) and the Modlite Lite Switch. This combo saves you money and gives you plenty of “Lumens”.

    Tells you just about everything you need to know. Worth every penny.

    Its a Modlite if you know what this light is about then you know if you can find one how good they are. So it comes down to where you buy yours from. I recommend Rooftop Defense whole heartedly. Good customer service , they respond quickly, they ship quickly, and pleasant to work with. And the combos they offer are not just to make extra money its a decent combo mix if you dont know what else you need/want.

    Great light and the best price to be found on this. Roof top is great as well.

  11. Chandler Ellis (verified owner)

    Crazy bright light, super slim and lightweight for its output. Loved the pocket constitution and ramen included with the package. Definitely will order stuff from rooftop again!

  12. Brandon (verified owner)

    Yea yea it’s crazy expensive butttttttt it feels super solid, finish is great, it makes dark places not dark, and it’s fookin gucci. Soooooooo buy it. Also rooftop makes it super easy by bundling the parts, I don’t get why it’s a la carte everywhere else making it complicated and confusing to pick out what you need.

  13. Tom Bittick (verified owner)

    Pretty awesome light really. I’ll be buying more and an okw because nods are a crutch

    Rooftop is saucey

  14. Thomas (verified owner)

    MODLITE…..what more is there to say? They made a deal with the devil to own ALL the lumens so they could sell them in the form of a rugged, top tier flashlight. Buy a MODLITE and end all conversation with your battle buddies over who’s is longer and can hit those spots way in the back. Stop searching the depths of the internet and buy from Rooftop Defense because nobody can beat their prices.

  15. Joey (verified owner)

    This light is amazing. The output you get from such a small light is ridiculous. Yes, it’s expensive but if I’m setting up a go to home defense gun I don’t want a $40 Chinese light mounted on it. If you’re between this and the new Rein they are both great. I would take this over the full size Rein any day just because it is ginormous but compared to the Rein micro it would be a tough choice, they are both excellent. If you have the means definitely try one out. I’m hooked. Can’t wait to get my hands on an OKW next!

    This review isn’t so much about the light. This review is about this company. Unfortunately, the light that I received was defective (these things happen); upon reaching out to roof top defense, they immediately rectified the issue and are sending me out an entirely new mod-lite package. The customer service here is amazing! Trust me when I tell you, I have dealt with so many companies in the past, and this one is hands-down one of the best. I can tell that they really take pride in what they do and the open lines of communication that I had between them was wonderful. This is one company that I am proud to support and one that I hope the rest of you do as well. Great people, great company.

    Good product and at a good price with the discount code. Light is a major upgrade from the m600AA that I was using. Shipping was super fast and the package included some bonus snacks. Awesome company 10/10 would recommend.

  18. Navid (verified owner)

    Arguably the best weapon mount light from one of the best vendors out there! Super fast shipping and a great price. Can’t beat Modlite or Rooftop Defense. Will definitely be purchasing more products from Rooftop Defense again.

  19. Rusty Shackleford

    I had never heard of modlite until seeing them listed on rooftop defense. After being able to test one out, I have to say it blows away surefire and streamlight, so I see why they are promoted here. It is hard to believe the cost is basically the same as a surefire! I own surefire and streamlight products, but I am 100% modlite from now on because they are the knights armament of lights!
