Guardian 1300TL Tactical Light By SUPERNOVA Review
Guardian 1300TL POWERFUL-DURABLE-RELIABLE
The Guardian 1300TL tactical light is the most powerful flashlight in its class. With a background as a Certified Corrections Officer, Protective Security Officer and Owner of a Contract Security Company I have seen a lot of tactical flashlights. This tactical light is the best I have ever seen. Weighing just 5.1 oz.(145 Grams) it is light and easy to hold with one hand unlike other full size lights with a quarter of the power. The flashlight is 6.25 inches(15.8cm) in length and 1.75 inches(4.5cm) in diameter. That does not steer away from the fact that this unit is made of smooth, brushed aircraft grade aluminum alloy finish that gives the light a scratch and shock proof exterior. The upper to this has a stainless steel strike bezel for the perfect blows to the face, stomach or the kidneys given you the advantage over any attacker. The technology behind this tactical light is just as impressive:
- CREE XM-L T6 LED bulb
- Brightness/output- 1300 Lumens
- Power source- 1 Cell 18650 Rechargeable Lithium Battery (included) or 3 AAA size Alkaline Batteries (included)
- Charged Runtime- 3-5 Hours
- Lighting Distance- 275-330 Yards (250-300 Meters)
- Waterproof for use in many types of weather
- BrightStart memory technology (light will always return to the highest possible lumens when turned on no matter what the last use was on)
- Luminescent soft rubber forward tactical switch with double slotted lanyard openings
- Ultra clear tempered glass lens with over 98.3% light transmittance and high efficiency aluminum reflector
So lets put all these words into real life situations. It’s a rainy night and your pet still needs to be walked. The sun has gone down and its dark out. You grab your leash and your Guardian 1300TL light. There’s no worries because even in the rain, your light will cut right through the darkness and the wetness has no effect to the unit. Given you all the protection you need from holes in the ground to the on coming vehicles.
Your in bed late that same night. You hear a sound by the front door. In the darkness you see the green glow of your SuperNova Tactical light on your night stand. Without turning on any house light and given the intruder the heads up you know they are there, you grab your impact weapon that will cause visual impairment. You see the intruder and face the light directly at their eyes and turn to the strobe. Their hands go to their face and you strike their body with the shock proof steel upper with a turning motion. They are down on the ground and your on the phone with the police.

Since getting this great tool in my hands, I don’t know what I would do without the bright shine of this light. I use it on a daily basis and feel incomplete without the Guardian in my arsenal and I can count on this for years to come.
