The Eden TDL30 is a versatile flashlight, specifically designed to have a large range, in a compact size lamp. The Eden TDL30 offers many different modes and features, without having difficult controls. This is the long awaited sequel to the very popular Eden TDL20 tactical flashlight.
Eden TDL30 tactical flashlight:
- High light intensity
- Easy operation
- Solid construction
- Excellent service
Suitable for 18650 batteries and CR123A batteries
The TDL30 is powered by a 18650 battery or two CR123A batteries. A special battery status indicator is built-in, which tells the current status in 5 steps. When the light flashes 5 times the battery is full and it will flash one time when it is running out of power. This indicator only works with 18650 batteries, not with CR123A batteries.
The only light with a functional strobe mode
The strobe of the Eden TDL30 offers 1620 lux at 3 meters away. Unprecedented for a flashlight of this size. 18Hz strobe will disorient a person completely. The focused beam makes it really easy to direct strobe and limit its effect on the surroundings. The strobe is electronically regulated so it will go on and off cleanly and create a further distorting effect.
Two-step tactical switch
A great feature of the Eden TDL30 is the two-stage tactical switch on the back of the lamp. When this is fully pressed in the Police Version the strobe will kick in. Even when the light is switched off. It cannot be missed! When you release the switch the lamp always switches off, also when it was in a constant light mode before that. By pressing the switch halfway it switches to the regular output modes. It can go as low as a very minimal firefly-mode, up to the turbo mode at full power. Switching between these modes is very easy with the magnetic spinning ring around the head. This ring has 6 positions: 5 constant light modes and an off-mode.
The regular version allows you to test the functionality of the tactical switch itself. You can choose regular and switch between light modes, or choose the police version with an instant-strobe and momentary-on to allow signaling.
Innovative controls, readily available
When the lamp is in a constant light mode, the tactical switch on the back can switch light intensity. Pressing the switch halfway allows you to go through the modes. Depending on the mode it’s in, it will slowly increase or decrease light intensity. When you would like the intensity to go up, and it is actually going down you have to let go of the switch and press it halfway again. When the lamp has reached its maximum light intensity it briefly flashes once to indicate that you have reached the highest position.
Special output modes for specific situations
When you fully press the tactical switch, turning the ring allows you to go through different special output modes. The different modes include battery status indicator, beacon status, momentary mode, traffic controller mode, SOS and a continuous strobe mode.
The innovative control of different output modes makes the Eden TDL30 flashlight special compared to other tactical flashlights. Other flashlights can have two switches on the back (one for strobe and one for switching on and off). You can run the risk of pressing the wrong switch when it really matters. The single switch of the TDL30 makes sure you’ll always go straight to the preferred mode.
Rock-solid construction, suitable for all conditions
The Eden TDL30 is built for the toughest conditions. The outside of the aluminum body is type III hard anodized. On the inside of the lamp the 18650 battery (or two CR123A batteries) are held by contact points with small springs. The lens of the Eden TDL30 lies deep in the head between two rubber rings. This gives a lot more protection against damage from falling. There is a stainless steel protective ring around the lamp head and it comes with a tactical ring. It improves the grip and prevents the flashlight from rolling. It is also possible to remove the ring should you want that. The Eden TDL30 flashlight is waterproof up to 2 meters.
The Cree XP-L High Density LED is firmly clamped on the aluminum heat sink, which is an integral part of the head. This guarantees excellent heat distribution and optimal lifetime of the LED. The tactical switch on the back runs does not run on the main current inside the light. This is done to make sure the switch will burn through. The contact areas are designed in a way that the TDL30 will work at all times, even when the head or switch aren’t totally screwed tighly. Crucial when every second counts.
The head of the TDL30 has a diameter of 34 mm. Because this is such a standard measure many accessories of other brands are suitable for the Eden TDL30. For everyday use we recommend one of these holsters:
