Pelican™ 7060 LED Rechargeable Police Flashlight - 7060
The Choice of Los Angeles' Finest!
The Pelican® 7060 LED rechargeable light employs new dual switch technology that allows the light to be activated by either a body-mounted patrol switch or a tail-mounted tactical switch. The dual switches, which include a momentary mode, allows the user to grip the light in several positions and still control activation. The light incorporates rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries for maximum brightness and light weight.
Rechargeable flashlight has 2 brightness modes: High and Low
Includes AC 120v wall charging cord and charging base. Holster sold separately.
PELICAN 7060 LED
EXCLUSIVE DUTY AND TACTICAL LIGHT OF THE LAPD
Working together in a unique public/private endeavor, the Los Angeles Police Department and Pelican Products, Inc. have redefined the tactical application of the standard duty light. Using a consensus approach, the LAPD solicited input from community groups, the City of Los Angeles, and most importantly officers serving on the streets. In the end, the specifications called for a new dual switch LED design, and Pelican Products began the R&D to make the light into reality. An officer on patrol needs the burn time and convenience of a neck-switched duty light, but tactical situations can demand a tail switch with momentary activation. The new Pelican 7060 serves both purposes in a single, compact unit with incredible brightness. The light incorporates rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries for maximum brightness and are also light weight compared to standard batteries.

Pelican 7060 LED
Hi. Next to an officers sidearm, the flashlight is his most important tool. The new Pelican 7060 reinvents the flashlight with a number of technical breakthroughs. The dual switch, for example, allows the light to be turned on with one switch and off with the other. It seems like a simple feature, but Pelican is the only flashlight manufacturer in the world that can make it work.
We have known for a long time that light emitting diodes will make a better flashlight. LED's don't have a filament to break, so you will never replace a bulb. They use less power and don't burn as hot either. But until now, LED's just weren't bright enough for police work.
The 7060 has a clean white LED beam that can reach over 100 yards. The powerful three Watt LED module generates 130 lumens, making it the first tactical light that is as bright as an incandescent bulb.
The light throws out a focused, high intensity center beam that forms a spot three feet in diameter at 30 feet distance. From 10 feet the spot is reduced at just a foot, but the lamp reflector is designed to provide a secondary six foot periphery light. This makes the 7060 light ideal for room sweeps.
Plus, both switches work with momentary on. With a light touch the beam can be activated for just a split second to avoid exposing your position. It also creates momentary blindness if pulsed rapidly in a suspect's eyes.
You might be wondering what these ribs are around the lamp module. They are actually cooling fins, or what engineers call a heat sink. These draw heat away from the LED module and keep the 7060 at its best operating temperature.
And heat is why it is never a good idea to set a flashlight lens down on a surface while it is on. To help the user avoid this, the 7060 has a serrated lens shroud. When placed lens down, the light spills out so that it is easy to see that it is still on.
So why do people naturally want to stand a light on its head? Actually, it is quite simple. They tend to roll away. That is one reason why every Pelican flashlight has a distinctive octagonal shape. Place it on an inclined surface like the hood of a patrol car and it is not going to roll away.
This is what powers the 7060. It is a 3.7 volt lithium ion battery weighing just a hair over two ounces. You would need three D-cell batteries weighing 15 ounces to get the same amount of power.
You will get 90 minutes of burn time when fully charged, which is far longer than the usual police call. A 12 volt in vehicle charger makes topping off the power between calls easy.
A really amazing feature of the 1760 is the electrical current regulator, a microchip continually adjusting the power to the lamp module to maintain the same 130 lumens of blinding brightness through the full 90 minutes of burn time. About five minutes prior to battery failure the LED blinks twice every few minutes to let you know it is time to snap it into the charger.
So for the best patrol and tactical application flashlight, choose the Pelican 7060.
Pelican: You break it, we replace it forever.
