The Modlite heads have undergone an in-line upgrade. The new head is slimmer but still provides the same output and runtime as the original heads. Performance is NOT affected. This light will ship with the new head.  All Modlite lights now come with ONE battery and an optional charger.

The Modlite OKW-18650 Weapon Mounted Light Package contains an OKW light head, 18650 body, and (optional add on) tail cap. It also includes ONE 3500mAh 18650 battery and an (optional) Xtar charger. While lumen output is only 680 lumen the throw is about 400% greater than the Surefire M600DF.  This light head is best suited for situations where extreme throw is needed.

If you’re on the fence about which light head to purchase we recommend the PLH light package which is available here.


  • Hand assembled in and tested in the USA.
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Approximately 680 out the front lumens and candela is approximately 69,000. 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.

You can also purchase the PLH , OKW and IR Head separately for your Modlite or Surefire M600DF Bodies. The Modlite 18350 and 18650 bodies work with all Surefire Scout tape switches, tailcaps and mounts.

    First got the PLHV2 first which came with everything needed in the packaging minus a tail cap. Ordered the OKW version to have two options and build quality is on point. Hotpot is nicely concentrated. I’d like to get out to an open space and see how far it really does reach out. I wasn’t bummed that it didn’t come with a charger and only with one 18650. As mentioned earlier, I already got the charger with the PLHV2. Will be ordering another pair or two of 18650’s in the future.
