i was definitely not expecting to get this for Xmass!

the head on this thing is massive. the emitter is centered nearly perfect! the slight op is beautiful!

i thought the body was going to be more gunmetal color but it is more black than anything.

i have a few family members at home still, so i haven't played with the UI much.

i love this new flashlight. thank you Wifey, i mean Santa!

will do a little video on it, no review or anything like that just to show you guys this beauty

Want to trade?

A collective CHEER from the community to your wife.

I got the Leatherman MUT multitool, she won't buy me lights anyomore but she's still an awesome gift giver.

Congrats on the newest Eagletac, the G25c2 looks awesome

Re: Santa brought me an EagleTac G25C2!!

the light has 4 output levels max high medium & low. the max throws out a wall of light that lit up the whole street. i was afraid neighbors were going to call NASA.

two user modes the first one is; max, h, m, l by rotating the head clockwise. no clicking or notches just smooth rotation, and if you twist halfway to high twice you get the hidden strobe sos beacon.
the second user mode is max, med, strobe, sos by rotating the head clockwise too.
the last feature is that you can have either user mode and engage the double tap strobe. it comes with it off but i turned it on for testing purposes. it's good that you have the option for that feature in case you have use for it.

after doing some wall hunting i do see a couple little artifacts, nothing to make me rant about it. i do like the fact that it has a tight hotspot but at the same time the spill is very bright in its own. the corona i do notice has a little yellow in it? so the wall is not all cool white. doesn't bother me at all.
this one is the xm-l u2 bin model.

i couldn't tell you if the 4sevens primaries i have in it are putting out 720 led/600 ansi lumens. probably not.

all in all the fit and finish, the weight, the accessory package are awesome. i can't stop reaching for it feels so good in hand.

this is by far the best flashlight i've ever handled aside from the t20c2. i'll take the G25C2 over the T20C2 any day.

The rubber antiroll ring, the bezel, the lanyard loop, the pocket clip, they are all removable. It also came with a diffuser and a tail stand adapter. No batteries though, i thought i read somewhere that it came with a set of batteries included. No big deal.

Re: Santa brought me an EagleTac G25C2!!

I was thinking of these 3:
Klarus XT11
ZebraLight SC600
JetBeam BC25
And now the Eagletac G25.
So far the G25 is in front row. Just wan to find out what the output is on 1X 18650.

Thanks for posting EPVQ30. This thread makes me happy.

-ANSI: 640/267/49/2
-EDIT It does have a stepdown.
-Good Modes and happy runtime. I wonder how it would run on the AW 18650 3100mah. Can I fit it?
-Looking like a winner, only thing coming in it's path is the ZebraLight SC600.

EDIT: It does have a stepdown.

comparing BMW with Porsche or what?
of course the G25 is better. it's more expensive too :ohgeez:

As of today it was a contender. New info in the klarus xt11 thread easily put the g25 on top.

I must have missed that while getting to excited reading the specs.
I was so close to getting this too. Wait, can it be disabled if it's a feature?

I edited that post as not confuse anyone.

Re: Santa brought me an EagleTac G25C2!!

let me try and see if i can shut that energy saving feature off and i'll report back.
i don't see it in the instructions, so i may have to contact the dealer.

from reading this, it looks like the energy saving feature can be disabled. time to get stoked again animalmother!:naughty:

Happiness.


Energy saving feature (on by default): G25C2 reduces output by 20% after 200 seconds at turbo mode. To toggle this feature, dial the head to 4th level and turn the flashlight on and off for 20 times. Once setting has been changed, LED will output 3 seconds at 100% (enable), or 1 second at 100% (disable).

Thanks for looking out.
