The Flight returns in 2009 with a newly configured battery and all the same great features. Using Lithium Ion powered cells, the Flight lighting system offers one of the greatest power to weight ratios of any lighting system available. The Flight offers three different HID light modes with run times ranging from 2:15 HRS up to 3:30 HRS. Want to extend burn times? Switch over to the power saving LED’s.
