Gear of PDTV:  Insight WL1 AA

Not long ago, lights powered by AA batteries just didn't have the brightness needed to be serious survival tools. To get the needed lumens, defensive lights relied on either CR123 or CR2 batteries. Powerful batteries indeed, but they're expensive, not too easy to find, and when they go dead, they do it quickly.

Insight recognized the value of a powerful defensive light powered by AA batteries and responded with the Insight WL1 AA that George is using this season.

The Insight WL1 AA has an adjustable laser sight.


This compact gun-mounted light uses two AA batteries to provide an impressive 150 lumens of intense white light for up to 90 minutes. The light is so intense; that its blinding effect can change an attacker's plan enough to give you the upper hand in a fight. The model we're using also has an adjustable laser sight.


Both the light and the laser are operated by the flick of the finger on an ambidextrous toggle switch. You can choose momentary on for lighting and moving, or constant on as the situation and tactics change.
