Here is a review of the Shadowhawk Tactical X800 LED flashlight, which among its extravagant claims is that it is most favored by America’s men and women in blue (police). Does it really hold up, though? Let’s find out.
Shadowhawk X800 Flashlight Review
This exclusive flashlight was first released to the public via the Internet only and boasts its top shelf aluminum aircraft makeup that was used to construct it. The Shadowhawk X800 Military Grade Tactical Flashlight is being touted as the most favored taclight of all America’s armed forces, including the police and military.
When it first came out, you had to register for a 75% off coupon from the maker’s site ShadowHawkFlashlights.com. Once you got the coupon, you could then actually get to the order form and buy a flashlight.
Those coupons gave early birds a really nice deal, as they only had to pay 14 bucks for the flashlight, whereas everyone else had to pay the full price, 56 dollars.
Other promoted features claim this military-grade LED flashlight will keep working for over 11 years of normal use and that it has the ability to zoom-in an amazing 2000 times.
But we know why you are here, and what you want to know in our ShadowHawk X800 review – so here are the specifications and details you need to make an informed buying decision.
Shadowhawk Tactical Flashlight Features
It is said to have a XPE LED light bulb – which according to the maker, is “one of the most powerful and bright bulbs on the market today”. Also, if you continue to believe what the manufacturer touts, then apparently this bulb is incredibly exclusive and they are one of very few companies to even have such an “amazing lightbulb” – and we searched too – they seem to be on point in their ability and success in being one of the very few companies who have their hands on this highly-regarded and specialized LED flashlight bulb.
Another touted feature of this flashlight is that it has been military tested. Yes, Shadowhawk claims that this flashlight is a favorite among the American military and police.
Made in the good ol’ USA. Who doesn’t love a good survival and outdoorsy product to be made in America. When you decide to try or buy the Shadowhawk X800 TacLight, they do mention it will be shipped from a California warehouse immediately following your order.
Constructed with aircraft aluminum. Don’t you hate dropping your flashlight and having it completely break? Well, with the Shadowhawk Tactical X800 flashlight, you won’t have to worry about that anymore. It is built to last and made with “only the strongest military grade aluminum” and that the flashlight or any individual part of it will “never break”.
Addressing one of the Claims
Shadowhawk claims that this flashlight is one most favored by the policemen and women of the United States. While you might find it strange or lack of supporting information if you do your own personal due diligence, but we did find credible sources in this same space that are tactical flashlight experts that say this level of information is generally not released to the public until years after the fact and formal use by many official establishments like the police and military.
So do not worry if you run google search queries like we did searching for “Shadowhawk Police Flashlight” or “X800 Tactical Military Flashlight” because you will find nothing of relevance or significance (yet).
The Tactical X800 Flashlight Prices
If you’re still looking to buy this flashlight, you can find the prices below. Keep in mind that if you buy in bulk, you’ll actually be paying less for each individual flashlight than if you’d buy them separately.
We had one viewer tell us they bought this for his whole family as a survival prepper tool. Here’s the cost breakdown of the Shadowhawk:
- One Flashlight – 56 dollars
- Two Flashlights – 97 dollars; you save $5.50 per flashlight
- Three Flashlights – 134 dollars; you save $11.34 per flashlight
- Four Flashlights – 169 dollars; you save $13.75 per flashlight
- Five Flashlights – 196 dollars; you save $16.80 per flashlight
- Ten Flashlights – 350 dollars; you save $21 per flashlight
- Fifteen Flashlights – 525 dollars; you save $21 per flashlight
- Twenty Flashlights – 700 dollars; you save $21 per flashlight
Buying in bulk doesn’t save you any more money if you buy more than ten flashlights, unfortunately. There is good news though if you’re still willing to buy from this company – the 75% off coupons are still available so you can go grab one.
Without question, tactical LED flashlights are becoming a thing on the internet in 2016. While they serve a lot of necessary and self-explantory purposes, many that are being positioned and sold in this regard offer many added benefits and extra advantages of having such a high-powered, military-inspired tactical flashlight like the X800 by Shadowhawk.
Our closing suggestion is to try it – it might more than you are used to pay for a flashlight, but chances are your Home Depot or favorite department store flashlight won’t hold a candle to the power and brightness the Shadowhawk X800 carries and casts.
