The light that gets you homeSM



The HDS Systems' EDC flashlights provide an advanced single button multi-brightness everyday-carry LED flashlights for the sophisticated flashlight user. Our advanced Rotary models include a rotary brightness control for convenient brightness adjustment. Our Tactical models combine true pure momentary tactical modes with convenient non-tactical click on click off modes.

HDS Systems has been pioneering flashlight technologies since the advent of white LEDs in 1997 to create our best-of-class products. Our flashlights can be customized to fit your particular needs, even as your needs change over time. And our flashlights are small enough to carry with you at all times. A flashlight is only useful if you have it with you when you need it.

Tactical, Rotary or clicky style - how do I choose?

All models provide 4 preset levels. For the EDC Executive, EDC LE and EDC Rotary models, these 4 presets levels correspond to the turn-on preset, the press-and-hold momentary preset, the double-click toggle preset and the triple-click preset. The first two presets can be accessed directly from off. For the EDC Tactical, the 4 preset levels correspond to the selected mode - 2 being pure momentary and 2 being click on click off.

The EDC Executive interface is a Clicky-style interface that is geared toward utilitarian uses. It turns on to Medium, press and hold for Maximum, double-click to toggle between Medium and Medium High and triple-click for Low. Turning on to Medium provides plenty of light for most situations and provides long runtimes. Maximum is always directly available, even from off.

The EDC LE interface is a Clicky-style interface that is geared toward law enforcement, security and similar uses. It turns on to High, press and hold for Maximum, double-click to toggle between High and Medium and triple-click for Tactical Strobe. Typical law enforcement and security tasks demand the light comes on to a tactical brightness (greater than 60 lumens), but not necessarily the maximum brightness. We have chosen a minimum of 90 lumens as a good compromise between brightness and runtime. Maximum is always directly available - even from off - and can be used to provide non-lethal force or to see extended distances. The Tactical Strobe is handy for warning traffic, making sure you are seen or disorienting someone who is under the influence.

The EDC Rotary interface combines our Clicky-style interface with a rotary control to provide you the ultimate convenience in setting the desired brightness level - just turn the knob to select the desired brightness level. The EDC Rotary turns on to whatever brightness level is selected by the rotary control so you can select your brightness level before you turn on your flashlight. Press and hold for Maximum, double-click for the Emergency Strobe and triple-click for Tactical Strobe. Maximum is always directly available, even from off. The strobes can be used for marking your location, signaling for help or warning traffic.

The EDC Tactical interface uses the rotary control to select one of the 4 presets. The two clockwise positions are pure momentary modes - when the button is down, the light is on, when the button is up, the light is off. These two positions correspond to Maximum (against the stop) and Tactical Strobe (away from the stop). The tactical positions are used for "flash and dash" techniques. The two counter clockwise positions are click on, click off modes and provide a more utilitarian Clicky-style interface. These two positions correspond to Medium (away from the stop) and Low (against the stop). Maximum is always directly available. The mode is easily and reliably selected using only gross motor skills - the only skills you can depend on under stress, even in noisy environments with heavy gloves.

We also have several specialty models that serve special functions, such as forensics, night vision, game observation or special baked ceramic colors.

We also offer custom built configurations. This allows you to build your ultimate flashlight from a wide array of parts.
