I am quite sure, that many of you are asking the question “Why the heck would I need a flashlight anyway?”. Just try to remember, how many times have you been in the situation, where you needed some source of light really bad. I would say that those situations do not happen too often, but then again, having a source of hand can be a lifesaver, literally in some cases.
Of course, every smartphone these days has a torchlight or flashlight application, but they will only get you so far. They are completely useless when it comes to self defense, unless you want to beat someone with your iPhone. But it’s not just that. For example, I love trekking and even though I hate to admit it, I got lost a few times and having a flashlight was absolutely invaluable. Just as it is invaluable whenever I go camping or need to change a tire at night, which happens more often than I would like to admit. And yes, this is exactly where Shadowhawk X800 enters the scene.
I am ex military and I’ve served in the army for decades. I have worked with the best military tactical flashlights that you can get. Some weren’t even available for public. And as it goes with everything these days, some of them were good, some decent and some utterly terrible. I’ve been retired for a few years now, so it’s hard to stay in touch with the most modern military technologies. However, not that long ago, one good friend recommended me the Shadowhawk X800 and I decided to order and review it.
I am naturally skeptical about things. That could be due to my military service, but it has always served me well. Naturally, I wasn’t sure about Shadowhawk X800 at all, so I did some research first. As I expected, I came across dozens of fake Shadowhawk X800 review websites, which sell cheap copies of the flashlight for twice its regular cost. Furthermore, they are also full of fake Shadowhawk X800 reviews. So my advice is, unless you want to get scammed of course, to avoid these websites completely. If you really want to give this flashlight a shot, then definitely purchase it from the official website only, which can be found here – Official Website.
Shadowhawk X800 – What Is It?
Surprise, surprise, Shadowhawk X800 is one of the hottest military grade tactical flashlights currently available on the market. It’s unbelievably small and will fit into any hand. However, don’t underestimate it, the light it can produce is absolutely stunning. On the right side of the website, you can actually see a picture of how bright it is. Considering how small it is, it has quite a lot of functions. I think that you won’t need most of them, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Let’s take a look at the individual features of this flashlight.
Shadowhawk X800 is as strong as it gets. It’s made of military grade aluminum, which is used to make airplanes, so it’s not only strong but also light. Especially when compared to other metals. I admit that the marketing here is a bit over the top. And that’s because aluminum is quite common in all kinds of products you can get in shops all over the world. Of course, most of the time it’s not a military grade quality, but enough to be durable and lightweight. All in all, aluminum is quite common. That, however, doesn’t take anything out of the construction quality of this great flashlight. It also has a jagged edge, which can be used to break glass if the situation requires it.
It’s not surprising that the brightness is the most powerful feature of the Shadowhawk X800. The power of the bulb is something over 800 lumens, and that’s enough to beat the majority of the flashlights on the market, especially when considering the price. To give you an idea how strong the brightness is – there are 2 other popular flashlights on the market. Life Pro Flashlight and Porcupine. The first one has 270 lumens, the other one just 70. The light bulb called XPE Lightning Class Performance is unique and not available anywhere else. So with this in mind, you can blind (temporarily of course) any assailant immediately and effectively. And as if that wasn’t enough, you can enable the strobe function. I haven’t shined the flashlight into my eyes obviously, but I would rather get hit by a stick, to be honest.
Shadowhawk X800 has an amazing zoom feature. Zoom is quite a common feature of pretty much every flashlight, but most of the time it doesn’t do much. However, here it actually means something. You can choose from 500x, 1000x and even 2000x zoom.
One of the best things about Shadowhawk X800 is, that it only requires 3 AAA batteries to work. They will last for over 100.000 hours of normal lamp life, so that’s basically almost forever. This is the main issue of the majority of flashlights on the market – battery life. They mostly last just a few hours and gradually lose power, so the light gets weaker.
Patriots will be happy to hear, that Shadowhawk X800 is made in the USA and shipped from the warehouse in California. The company is American as well, so you will receive a perfect support.
Manufacturer also provides significant bulk discounts if you buy more flashlights at once. So if you want to have one in your kitchen, one in your car, one in your garage and so on, then it’s not a bad idea to get more of them. Considering the price, it’s not really a problem. When we compare the price with other popular flashlights on the market, which are mostly in $100+ price range per piece, the Shadowhawk X800 is almost twice cheaper, while having even better quality.
Shadowhawk X800 is an amazing gadget. You will get a flashlight, a weapon, self-defense tool and the best part is, that it costs only around 50 bucks. So whether you need something to help you in the dark or serve as a defense tool in some dire situations, this flashlight is a perfect choice. I honestly can’t remember if I’ve ever held a better flashlight in my hand, especially when considering the cost.
