A Maglite may seem old-school to many; it's just as functional today as it was 20-plus years ago. All the cool hightech handheld light sabers we call tac lights are not designed for work on traffic details. There is still a need for a light that has a long runtime and offers a decent output of light to identify people, yet won't blind yourself or others when doing close quarters inspections. One thing the wonder lights can't do is be used as a window persuader. While this may not be a prescribed use of a light, it's useful for successfully opening windows to gain access into vacant buildings to do searches. Maglite has also led the way with brighter krypton and xenon bulbs, giving users light outputs from 36 to 233 lumens.
