The V1’s click-type tailcap switch—shrouded to help prevent accidental activation—lets you quickly select an output level. In white light mode, partially press the tailcap pushbutton for a momentary-on 250-lumen high-output beam; press further to click constant-on high. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds for 5-lumen low-output beam with extended runtime.
To switch between white light, disable, and infrared modes you simply pull then twist the front knurled portion of the bezel. The tailcap switch again lets you easily select output levels in IR mode—partially press for a momentary-on 100-milliwatt high-output beam, press further to click constant-on high. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds for a 5-milliwatt low IR beam.
A somewhat larger two-battery version of this light, the V2 Vampire, provides slightly different operating controls, along with slightly increased output and runtimes in both white light and IR modes.

- Virtually failure-proof LED emitters regulated to maximize output and runtime
- Two output levels—high for maximum light, low for extended runtime
- TIR lens produces tight beam with enough surround light for peripheral vision
- Coated tempered window resists impact, maximizes light output
