Elzetta Designs has announced the availability of their new flood style lens for use with their High Output flashlights. Made from solid acrylic, this new lens is designed to produce a very broad and even beam with hardly any center hot spot as found with conventional reflectors and optics. For those keeping score at home this latest addition means there are now 120 possible configurations of the Elzetta modular flashlight! Continue reading
Edit 6/26/2014: Elzetta Designs has announced the release of their new 1-cell Alpha Modular Flashlight. First displayed at SHOT Show 2014 (in prototype form) the new Alpha is now available for purchase directly from Elzetta.
The new light appears to retain Elzetta’s modular design philosophy which is good news for owners of existing Elzetta products and should allow different configurations based upon user preference and needs. Most existing Elzetta tailcaps can be used with the new Alpha with the High/Low tailcap being the only exception. The Alpha can be ordered with its own specific High/Low tailcap tailored to produce a 7 lumen low output mode in addition to the 315 lumen high mode.
Elzetta has also released their new Speed Clip today which fits the Alpha as well as the existing Bravo and Charlie models. Designed to be installed without the use of tools, the new Speed Clip may be installed in various locations on the lights to allow for bezel-up or bezel-down carry.
SureFire vs. Elzetta. Charlie vs. Fury. Which is the best for you? Will it be the sleek and smooth P3X from California or maybe the rough and tough Charlie from the Bluegrass State? Both lights have a lot to offer so grab a cold beverage of your choice and get to your seat, the fun is about to begin. Continue reading

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.
