Charge MPLS

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

This ver­sa­tile light is par t of Prince­ton Tec’s Mod­u­lar Per­sonal Light­ing Sys­tem (MPLS), and is com­pat­i­ble with many tac­ti­cal mount ap­pli­ca­tions — ARC, MICH, or Pi­catinny rails, above-the-rail mount, and MOLLE/PALS web­bing. It also in­cludes a ny­lon strap for use as a stand­alone head­lamp, worn above the right ear. The pres­sure switch al­lows tog­gling be­tween white light and a sec­ondary LED clus­ter. We chose three red LEDs, but Prince­ton Tec of­fers the Charge with other color com­bi­na­tions, in­clud­ing ul­tra­vi­o­let and in­frared. A flex­i­neck al­lows the wide beam to be aimed in­de­pen­dently of the user’s head.

PROS:

Sec­ondary LEDs are avail­able in var­i­ous use­ful col­ors — red, green, blue, UV, and IR

Works great mounted on a back­pack shoul­der strap or other web­bing

Made in the USA

CONS:

The sag-prone head strap is the least ef­fec­tive of this light’s many mount­ing op­tions.

Rather ex­pen­sive, con­sid­er­ing its mod­est list of features
