The Tactical XT808 LED is the newest flashlight made by Primitive Survivors. It is supposedly so bright that it could blind a Grizzly bear without a problem. The XT808 is meant to be used in all kinds of environments, and it's designed for police and military personnel. We wanted to test the XT808, so we got a unit and compared it to other similar models on the market. The results were great but read on for a detailed look at the XT808 features.

Product Description

Tactical lights have to be versatile, durable, and broad as a self-defense tool. The XT808 has all of those features and even more. It is 5.1 inches long, but it extends to 6.18 inches when used. The body is made from aircraft aluminum alloy that is lightweight and extremely durable at the same time. It is also waterproof so you can use it in heavy rain or even while diving.

The Cree XM-LED emitter puts out 800 lumens of light, brighter than a camera flash. There are five preset light modes including high, medium, low, strobe, and SOS. The first three settings allow you to choose the brightness of the steady light. That light can illuminate objects as far as 1500 feet away. The Strobe light mode is used for self-defense, and the bear-blinding effect is no joke. This kind of light will fend off any attacker, no matter if it's wildlife or a burglar.

If you get lost or stranded in the woods or a mountain, you can use the SOS light mode and point the flashlight towards help. The bright LED light can be seen from far away so the search party will know where to look. The LED light has a lifespan of 100,000 hours, and the burn time on high mode is 1.5 hours. The Low light mode is bright enough to light your way even through the darkest forest, and you'll get 50 hours on a single charge.

The XT808 comes with 3 AAA batteries that are fully charged in about an hour. You also get a free battery charger, and every component fits perfectly in the special hard case with the Primitive Survivors sticker.

What Is So Special About It

When we turned the XT808 on, the only thing we could say was WOW. It is one of the brightest tactical flashlights we had our hands on. It is most certainly capable of blinding someone, and the lighting distance is incredible. The other features like the durable aluminum body, the telescoping focus settings that can zoom up to 2000 times, and the beveled edge are standard in all tactical lights.

Our point is – this product has all of the features of other, more popular brands and models, but it's much cheaper. Having a reliable product on hand is always a good idea, and it's safe to say that the XT808 is one of the best tactical lights you can buy for less than 100 dollars

Before You Buy It

Primitive Survivors are the manufacturers of the XT808. The company sells high-quality products like camping tents, lights, outdoor survival clothing, and other equipment meant for adventurers, hunters, and survivalists. They offer a wide range of reliable tools that can save your life in the wild, and the XT808 is no different.

Since this is one of their newest products, you won't be able to find that much information about it on the internet, but it's still a great flashlight. You can easily compare it to other models in the same price range, but you'll see that the power and the features of the XT808 are unmatched.


There are many tactical ones available on the market these days, but few of them have combined power, functionality, and price as the XT808. This is a flashlight that can serve as a non-lethal self-defense weapon, it can withstand all weather conditions, and it can even send out a signal that could save your life. Having one of these on hand will make you feel safe no matter where you are.
