The most advanced flashlights in the world - built in the USA

Celebrating 37 years in business

Special Event: Beryllium Copper Rotary Flashlight

The pre-order for the run of Beryllium Copper Rotary flashlights has ended. We will produce a few extra. After the pre-orders have shipped around the end of the year, we will offer any remaining lights at a base price of $1250.

We are looking into additional LED options. However, the qualification process for those optional LEDs will still take a couple of months to complete - with no guarantee any of the LEDs will pass the qualification process. Once these LEDs pass qualification, we will publish the specifications and allow your Beryllium Copper order to be upgraded to include your choice of those LEDs.

Revision 2.18 now shipping

We have upgraded the software in our flashlights to revision 2.18. All flashlights shipped from February 26, 2018 will have the new release. Read the revision history to see the improvements we have made over the years. You can upgrade to the current version.

Revision 2.18 has the following improvements: we brought back the triple-click button lockout option, true momentary is now controlled by a settable option, we added the pulsating strobe and beacon strobe brightness levels, we moved the Tactical UI rotary lock to triple-click when on, we changed the Rotary UI double-click and triple-click presets to also be the rotary brightness level to simplify the Rotary UI, we improved the operation of Auto-off and we added a bicycle configuration. See the advanced user's guides for details on how the new features work: EDC Bicycle, EDC Executive and EDC LE Advanced User's Guide, EDC Rotary Advanced User's Guide and EDC Tactical Advanced User's Guide
