We covered the larger brother earlier, the LA Police Gear Operator Tactical L1 flashlight, earlier. The LAPG Operator Tactical L2 is the slightly smaller sibling to the L1, offering slightly less power in a slimmer, shorter overall package. It has the same two separate settings and four modes of operation, as well as up to 63 hours of run time on two CR123 batteries. It does all this at an MSRP under $50, too.

It's not as polished as other lights, with a shiny black finish rather than the polished matte that's all the rage, but that's about the only visual difference between the L2 and flashlights selling for more than twice the price. The settings, though, really set the L2 apart. Two separate modes are available: Tactical, which allows the user to switch between high output and strobe, and Working, which gives the high, medium and low settings with each button-push. Even more impressive, it remembers which setting was used last rather than defaulting to high. This is important if you're using the low setting for maneuvering in low- or no-light scenarios.

The high setting offers 730 lumens and a runtime of 2.3 hours. Medium gives 305 lumens for 3.3 hours, while Low gives 10 lumens and an impressive 63 hours of runtime (more than 2.5 days of continuous use). The High setting provides visibility for up to 150 yards, and the L2 is impact resistant from a drop height of 1.5 meters and water resistant to 2 meters.

MSRP: $49.99. Current promotion puts the price at $29.99.
