ASP XT DF Programmable Tactical Flashlight Review

Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP), makers of police gear, just introduced one of their highest-performing tactical lights yet, the XT DF flashlight. With a whopping 600 lumens, it also provides a secondary light level that you can program to 15, 60, or 150 lumens, or even a strobe setting. Finally, the 18650 rechargeable battery lasts a long while, and ASP’s Dual Fuel technology features the ability to swap out for two CR123A primary (single use) cells when your primary battery is drained. 

Design-wise, the XT DF is built like a tank, and ironically, is quite elegant. It features a hardcoat-anodized, 6061 T6 alloy body, machined aluminum parabolic reflector, and ASP’s exclusive foamed vinyl grip. The top twists up to reveal a gray button, which allows you to set the secondary light setting to your desired preference. Or, you can change the same settings with the 3-position twist selector on the tail cap, allowing  choice of intermittent, constant-on, or locked. On the bottom resides a rubber pressure button to switch between light modes. Press once to activate the primary/max setting, twice to activate the user-programmed secondary mode.

For the light source, the XT DF features a Cree XPG LED, which is among the brightest and whitest light sources around. That’s why police use it so they have a super powerful light source in a very compact design. That same LED is driven by advanced electronics and protected by a high-efficiency thermal management system. In short, it works like a champ, illuminating wide areas and far distances. In fact, this light seems to defy physics, throwing a very bright light, which originates from such a small device.
