Meet BlitzWolf BW-T1. Blitzwolf appears to be reenergizing their logo and has moved away from the Wolf paw to a charging power icon. The BW-T1 is Blitzwolf’s new LED flashlight, coming out with the new company’s logo. Their first light, the ET1 had smart controls and stepless brightness, this new one is based on a clicky style with a single push button at the end. The T1 has a larger battery and brighter LED, but it is not a direct upgrade of the ET-1, both have their own unique features.
BlitzWolf BW-T1 XP-G3 S4 Portable Tactical LED Flashlight offers the unique combination of very high efficacy at very high drive currents, delivering up to 750 lumens. With its breakthrough light output and efficacy, the BlitzWolf BW-T1 is designed for very high lumen applications such as high-bay, indoor commercial or roadway lighting. Super Bright LED Flashlight, made with high quality Aluminium alloy. Special reflector design, enhance light output in intension and distance.
The Cree XP-G3 LED is the highest efficacy and most reliable LED in the XP-G platform. Incorporating elements of Cree’s SC5 Technology Platform, the XP-G3 LED delivers both high reliability at high operating temperatures and high efficacy to meet the higher efficacy and lumen maintenance requirements of DLC classification. Optimized for directional, high‑lumen applications, from indoor and outdoor to portable and lamp retrofits, the XP‑G3 LED delivers the benefits of the XP-G platform – compact and proven 3.45 mm x 3.45 mm package and established ecosystem – enabling customers to simplify the design process and shorten time to market.
One of the criticisms of the BW-ET1 wast the choice of a 14560 battery, the compact form factor could have been made to house a larger battery without much change in size. They seem to have listened and crammed a 18650 battery into the T1.
BlitzWolf added an XPG3-S4 LED for an extra 25% brightness, so you now get 750 lumens of brightness. They also widened the beam on the BW-T1, so you still get the same 150m range, but enjoy more light coverage.
The ET-1 has a side mounted surface button, the T1 button is at the end of the torch. The convenience of the ET1 comes at the cost of durability, the rubber button is not protected and would not be suitable for regular rugged use. The T1 places it recessed and in the tail cap, where it is more difficult to activate accidentally, and also is protected from any drops and scrapes.
Both are bright enough, and the decision is more based on battery life vs size and weight.
Why you should grab the BW-T1
The new T1 sticks with a simple design and controls giving you a reliable, solid easy to control flashlight.
– Larger battery
– Rugged tail cap switch design
Why you should grab the BW-ET1
The ET-1 brings more light functions and mounting options. The exposed rubber switch can be damaged (if you are rough) and it has a greater chance of accidentally turning on.
– Stepless brightness
– More lighting modes
– Magnetic base
