The mailman delivered a new Elzetta Charlie with AVS today, along with an extra Bravo body, and I couldn’t wait to get some beamshots of the light in action. After hearing what others had to say about the new high-output heads, I had a pretty good idea of what to expect but I was still impressed by the performance in both 2 and 3 cell configurations.
This latest offering from Elzetta can be purchased as a complete light or as an upgrade for previous models of Elzetta lights. The new high-output head is rated at 650 lumens when used with the 2-cell Bravo body or 900 lumens when added to the 3-cell Charlie body, and uses a solid acrylic optic to shape the beam.
