The XT808 LED Flashlight is a recently launched product and it’s one of the best selling ones. It’s designed for military and police enforcement, but it is ideal for adrenaline junkies, hikers, campers and self-defense. With an affordable price and functional design it became very popular, but is it really worth the price?

Company background

The XT808 LED Flashlight is sold by Primitive Outdoors, a relatively new company that sells camping equipment  and optics and lights. This is their newest release and they are calling it “one of the best flash lights there is”.

The XT808 LED Flashlight has 800 lumens of light equal to 60 Watts of light power, powered by 3x rechargeable AAA batteries with a lamp life of 100,000 hours.  It uses a Cree XM-L T6 bulb which by now became a standard between law enforcement and military.

Material and design functionality

The XT808 LED Flashlight is made of aircraft grade aluminum alloy which is tough, durable and prevents breaking if a heavy object falls on your flashlight or if you drop it from a high elevation. Also it’s 100% waterproof and has a beveled edge which makes it a good self-defense weapon against aggressive targets. And with the 800 lumens of light you can blind anyone trying to attack you.

 Box content

The standard pack of the XT808 is pretty simple:

  • Tactical box
  • XT808 LED
  • Charger unit
  • Rechargeable batteries

This makes it easy to store and transport the flashlight and the charger and prevents losing or damaging some of the parts.


The standard price of the XT808 LED according to the official store is $224 but now it is sold with a 75% discount with a broken down price below:

  • $56 1 XT808 Flashlight ($56 Per Unit)
  • $97 2 XT808 Flashlights ($48.50 Per Unit)
  • $134 3 XT808 Flashlights ($44.60 Per Unit)
  • $169 4 XT808 Flashlights ($42.24 Per Unit)
  • $196 5 XT808 Flashlights ($39.20 Per Unit)
  • $350 10 XT808 Flashlights ($35.00 Per Unit)

But is it really worth $224 and is the 75% discount really that much?

Well similar flashlights with the same Cree XM L T6 bulb are sold on Amazon for $10-$20, so that crazy good deal doesn’t sound that crazy good now.

However if you want a premium tactical flashlight and you are willing to pay $56 this is the right choice for you.
