Nextorch TA31 Tactical Searchlight

Nextorch Industries is a manufacturer of illumination tools and specialized equipment for law enforcement, first responder, tactical and outdoor applications and is now rolling out the TA31 UItra-Bright Tactical Searchlight. With a whopping 10,000 lumens output, the TA31 can turn the dead of night into day, casting a beam that's over four football fields end-to-end in length, allowing for full area coverage or targeted searching.

This professional-level illumination device was designed to meet the special demands of high-stake operations. The Nextorch TA31 is up to the tasks of every duty use as well as search-and-rescue operations and recovering game animals after dark.

The TA31 features Nextorch’s patented One-Step-Strobe technology, a two-stage button on the tail that allows for an override of the constant functions with a half-press for high and a full-press for an immediate strobe. A smart temperature control system maintains optimal performance and safety while in use. The smart sensor technology prevents accidental blinding when detecting objects at close-range. Quick charging of the two hardwired 4800 mAh Li-ion batteries is done via a USB direct 18W QC fast-charger, giving the new TA31 an 170-hour maximum runtime.

The TA31’s robust construction includes a stainless-steel strike bezel that is impact-resistant up to 6.5 feet. Embedded with nano-ceramic beads in the head, second only to diamonds in hardness, the TA31 is able to break tempered glass easily in emergency rescue situations and is also IPX-8 rated as waterproof up to 6.5 feet.
