1TAC TC1200 Tactical Flashlight Review - Is It The Best Value for Your Money?

Some people assume that they do not need a tactical flashlight because they never go on dangerous military missions or track down criminals like police officers do, but these torches are useful in other types of situations too. You can use one to scare off someone trying to break into your home when the power goes out during a storm or even when you need to make repairs in dark areas of your home.

In A Rush?

Final Verdict


You can now find tactical flashlights for sale in big box stores and camping supply stores, but a large number of brands and models on the market actually makes it hard to find the best one. Some of these torches are great for camping and hunting but won’t work as well in your home or when you’re on the job. The TC1200 from 1TAC is one of the models that will work in all these situations and much more.
