Discontinued V1 PLH

These are cosmetically blemished (we dare you to find the blems) lights that are 100% functional but may show minor cosmetic flaws. It’s a great way to score some lights at an amazing price! A full warranty is in effect.


This light package contains a PLH light head, 18650 body and tail cap. It also includes two KeepPower 3500mAh 18650 batteries and a Nitecore D2 charger. While lumen output with this light is similar to the Surefire® M600DF head the throw is much better suited to a rifle mounted application at almost than twice the amount of throw over the M600DF.

If you’re looking for the best overall output and throw this is the package you want. We also offer the same light in a shorter package with our 18350 body. This setup can be found here.


  • Hand assembled in and tested in the USA.
  • Available in Cool White 5700k or Neutral White 5000K tint (Light output is not affected)
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Approximately 1500 out the front lumens and candela is approximately 29,000. It is an excellent overall light head good for indoor or outdoor use.
  • 6061 Series Alum bezel with Mil-Spec Hard Anodizing.
  • Ultra clear BOROFLOAT® lens allows 98-99% light transmittance.

Lithium CR123 cells are not supported and if used will cause the cells to heat up and possibly explode or catch fire. We recommend the KeepPower 18650 high drain cells which can be found here. Runtime is about 75 minutes with the supplied 18650 cells.

    This was my first Modlite purchase. I’ve always used Surefire it Streamlight in the past. The output and versatility of this light far exceeds what I’m used to with the others. Build quality is great, and the fact that EVERYTHING on this light (with the exception of the emitter, from my understanding) is actually manufactured in the U.S., is a great selling point for me. I looked hard, and I can’t find the blem on it. If you buy this light you won’t regret it. The shipping and service from Big Tex is top notch.

    I was on the fence between Surefire and Modlite, but I’m glad I got the Modlite. I did a comparison between the m600d vs the PLH and there was no comparison the Modlite has better throw, spill and it uses its light much more efficiently. The surefire on the other hand honestly had lackluster performance.

    Very please with this “blem” version. Tiny spot of bare aluminum on the bezel. Definitely worth the savings. Owning both a scout m600df and now the modlight I can confirm that the modlight has a tighter center hot spot and more throw.

    Purchased a blem Modlite PLH weapon light and couldnt be happier. Its beocme my go to carbine light, replacing SF Dual Fuels. The PLH’s throw an flood are noticeably better than my SF Dual fuels. Will defently be buying more Modlite

    My first Modlite purchase and won’t be my last. Lots of lumens and great throw. Couldn’t really find anything noticeably wrong with the “blem” version. Will be picking up the new PLHv2 shortly.

    Blem was a great deal, as somebody totally ok with scratches / blemishes — frankly couldn’t even see any although i didn’t bother to look at it too hard.

    Light: Fantastic. I moved my m600df off the recce and onto a pistol build, and put this guy on the recce. I haven’t tested the spill, but it is VERY immediately apparent that there is a brighter, tighter throw on the modlite which is great for longer distances than the df. Very happy with this order!

    Very glad I went with Modlite, easily my favorite WML that I own.
