Acebeam brand new tactical light L17 is the ultra-long-range flashlight designed by one single 18650 in the industry. The L17 offers two different LED options available for different users' needs: OSRAM white, green light LED. The white LED delivers a maximum of 1,400 lumens and 802 meters. It is great for tactical use cases and day-to-day lighting, while the green is great for preserving night vision and other activities like fishing and hunting. Both options come with an impressive lumen output, throw, and a defensive strobe mode for quick, on-the-fly self-defense. The most impressive feature of the L17 is its ability to give off light up to 802 meters away. Considering the body is barely 14CM long, having that much throw packed into a small tactical light is amazing!

Blown away. I ordered a second one right away to give to my dad, as he was super impressed as well. I got the green for night fishing and spotting channel markers in the dark. I can see channel markers at ridiculous distances. The green doesn't spook fish too much.
This is my first acebeam light. It is pretty nice. Strong green hotspot. Compact size. It is working just fine. Seems well worth it. Killzone shipped it quickly. I also ordered the picatinny pistol grip to mount a light on. It shipped quick and feels nice.
Excellent light overall! The K-lux rating is correct, as we could easily see hogs and deer at 400 yards. No game spooked during testing (hogs, deer, coyotes, bobcat, rabbits...etc.) I would recommend this light 100%. The white or green versions are perfect mates for an AR platform as well, with double the distance (approx 800 yards). Worth every penny. Keep in mind, there is little to no corona/spill (side-light) with these LEDs and lenses, and are made for spotting, not general purpose. Fits in all standard one inch scope rings. And lastly, use a good battery like Panasonic, Efest, Samsung, etc. God bless!!
When indoor, or looking at my kid's ear for example, I'd like to have a lower output mode. This thing is powerfully bright, but loses some versatility without having a very low mode.
Overall well made and a great thrower. Only giving it 4 stars since the switch is mushy and not the easiest to switch modes. Would love one with a improved tail switch and tail light like on the Fenix tk47.
