I am pretty sure, that many of you are asking “Why would I need a flashlight at all?”. Well, how many times have you been in a situation, when you desperately needed a flashlight in the dark? Not too often I presume, but in those situations, having a strong source of light can be invaluable. Sure, modern smartphones have flashlight applications, which can help you out in the dark, but they can only get you so far. They won’t help you much in the self-defense department, will they? If you love trekking as I do, and you get lost in the woods, or you need to change a tire, or simply go camping, having a powerful flashlight is a must. And that’s where Shadowhawk X800 enters the scene.
I had served in the army for decades, so I have worked with the best military flashlights you can get your hands on. Some of them were bad, some good, some amazing. It has been some time now since I have retired, but I think it’s a good idea to be always prepared for whatever may come. One friend recommended me the Shadowhawk X800, so I decided to take a closer look at it.
Before We Start
I am always quite skeptical, and this case wasn’t an exception. Actually, my skepticism saved me this time. When I was doing my pre-sale research, I came across dozens of fake Shadowhawk X800 review websites. They were full of misleading and false Shadowhawk X800 reviews. However, that’s not the worst part. They were selling some fake copies of this flashlight of disputable quality for twice the cost of the original. So, those of you who are interested in this product and don’t want to get scammed should purchase it from the official website only, which can be found here – Official Website.
What Is Shadowhawk X800?
To put it simply, Shadowhawk X800 is the hottest military grade tactical flashlight around. It’s really small, definitely smaller than my hand and it delivers absolutely blinding light. You can see the pictures on the right side of my website, about how powerful it actually is. For a flashlight of this size, it has a huge number of functions and settings. You probably won’t use most of them, but who knows. The more, the better. Now let’s take a look at the features one by one.
It’s not surprising that the brightness is the most powerful feature of the Shadowhawk X800. The power of the bulb is something over 800 lumens, and that’s enough to beat the majority of the flashlights on the market, especially when considering the price. To give you an idea how strong the brightness is – there are 2 other popular flashlights on the market. Life Pro Flashlight and Porcupine. The first one has 270 lumens, the other one just 70. The light bulb called XPE Lightning Class Performance is unique and not available anywhere else. So with this in mind, you can blind (temporarily of course) any assailant immediately and effectively. And as if that wasn’t enough, you can enable the strobe function. I haven’t shined the flashlight into my eyes obviously, but I would rather get hit by a stick, to be honest.
Shadowhawk X800 is as strong as it gets. It’s made of military grade aluminum, which is used to make airplanes, so it’s not only strong but also light. Especially when compared to other metals. I admit that the marketing here is a bit over the top. And that’s because aluminum is quite common in all kinds of products you can get in shops all over the world. Of course, most of the time it’s not a military grade quality, but enough to be durable and lightweight. All in all, aluminum is quite common. That, however, doesn’t take anything out of the construction quality of this great flashlight. It also has a jagged edge, which can be used to break glass if the situation requires it.
Shadowhawk X800 has an amazing zoom feature. Zoom is quite a common feature of pretty much every flashlight, but most of the time it doesn’t do much. However, here it actually means something. You can choose from 500x, 1000x and even 2000x zoom.
Shadowhawk X800 needs only 3 AAA batteries to work, believe it or not. Plus, it can last 100.000 hours of normal lamp life. So you don’t have to change batteries or work with rechargeable ones, which die over time and lower the flashlight strength. The flashlight is made in the USA and shipped from the warehouse in California. It’s manufactured by an American company, so you will also receive a perfect customer support.
When you visit the official website, you will see that the manufacturer provides a huge bulk discounts if you buy more flashlights at once, so that can be a way to save some money. Also, when we compare price with other flashlights on the market, which are of the same quality, then you would need to pay significantly more. Other flashlights are in the $100+ price range, while Shadowhawk X800 is over two times cheaper while having same or better quality.
Shadowhawk X800 is an amazing gadget. You will get a flashlight, a weapon, self-defense tool and the best part is, that it costs only around 50 bucks. So whether you need something to help you in the dark or serve as a defense tool in some dire situations, this flashlight is a perfect choice. I honestly can’t remember if I’ve ever held a better flashlight in my hand, especially when considering the cost.
