About TC1200 Tactical Flashlight
The TC1200 Tactical Flashlight, found online at 1TAC.com, is a new product that describes itself as a tactical flashlight with military grade strength that can be used as an important safety tool.
How Does It Work?
According to the Tactical Ignite, which is promoting this product, most Americans are not properly prepared for issues with their own safety because they do not own a proper flashlight. Though most people feel as though a basic flashlight from their corner store is “good enough,” this website says that a high powered tactical flashlight is actually necessary to take the best care of themselves and their loved ones.
The reality is that tactical flashlights are used by the U.S. Navy Seals, the Coast Guard, Firemen, Policemen, and U.S. Search and Rescue because they are the most powerful and the most useful in a crisis. For example, someone whose car has broken down on the side of the road could use a tactical flashlight to signal for help.
The website even goes so far to say that the TC1200 Tactical Flashlight has a strobe feature which is designed to blind attackers and leave them disoriented, so that the owner of the flashlight can get away safely without needing to engage in any physical attack. Tactical Ignite says that so many people are learning the importance of these flashlights that they have become difficult to keep in stock.
The TC1200 Tactical Flashlight is currently available for $56, which they quote as being 75% off the normal retail price of $224.00. Unfortunately the website does not provide any information on how long this promotion will last and when they will return to normal retail pricing.
This website does offer their customers a published Terms & Conditions with a brief explanation of their Return & Refund Policy, though the website simply says that customers hoping to return their purchase will need to contact Customer Service by either phone or email with their name, their address of delivery, and the reason why they wish to return their product.
Returns must be made within the first 30 days of the date of purchase in order to be considered, but even returns made within the required time period will still be handled on a case-by-case basis. There is no guarantee that your request will be honored.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 877-616-3515 or by email at Support@1TAC.com.
Unfortunately this product has very few customer reviews available at this time, making it difficult for prospective customers to know whether or not they would like to purchase this product from this website.
However, of the few reviews which are available, there are certainly some extremely poor reviews that should give potential customers cause for concern. In general, there is more than one “tactical” flashlight being sold online for 75% off the retail price and customers who order them are finding out that they are getting basic, cheap, standard flashlights constructed in China and advertised as though they are military grade quality.
The fact that this website provides almost no information on their pricing structure and doesn’t provide a clear to follow policy for returns and refunds is just another sign that customers should stay far away.
Competitors and Alternatives?
As mentioned above, there are many other of these flashlights available on the market, like T2000 Tactical Flashlight, Lumitact G700, ZeroHour, and many others, as well as local stores which sell tactical grade flashlights for customers who are interested in purchasing that kind of product. Customers who are unhappy with this product should be able to find an alternative that better meets their needs.

IS THIS A SCAM???
I ordered a flashlight and kit on December 16 they took my $94 the next day but 20 days later I am still waiting to receive my product. Attempted to call but was on hold over 30 minutes. Emailed customer service and was told to wait up to 24 hours for a response - it's been over 48 hours. I think I'm out $94 - A hard lesson learned.
is anybody at the customer service number??? I've placed an order and I'm trying to get a hold of someone there to see why my order hasn't arrived, but the phone rings about 3 times and than you're disconnected. I must have called about half a dozen times and i't always the same, no one pick up the phone!!!!
one star, because I couldn't give less
This is a $10 (at most) Chinese pile of crap.
It is a decent flashlight for $10.... but not a penny more.
They quote a retail price of over $200? LOLOLOLO
I can get a TM16 (Nitecore Tiny Monster) for that price, and it is an ACTUAL 3600 lm lite of high quality
This is apprx. 230 lumens of Chinese garbage. Don't fall for it.
These are scammers and liars an should be put right out of business.
Calling Customer service is like watching paint dry
I have currently been on hold for just over an hour waiting for any human to respond to cancel my order. This, plus not having the ability to review our order before submitting, should be notice to the rest of you to stay clear.
Look for another light from a reputable company
1TAC deleted my post about my negative experience with them during a flashlight purchase. Be careful, I might suggest your look for another company to do business with. Just my feedback/warning about my experience if you are interested. Thanks

I wish that would have checked a bit more about this site and the product. Now Im stuck with them and with continue to do battle until I get some form of satisfaction.
Buyers Be Wear. Scam Scam
Bought 3 get 2 free...NOT charged for all 5 for 145.00
NO WAY 1200 Lums. I have a lux pro sold by Lowes which is 480 lums and it is brighter and shines further then 1tac. Have a friend who bought the bell Howell off tv and its the same light with different silk screening fo 19.00 each. We put fully charges 3.7 volt 2200olms batteries in both and they are the same. My lux pro blinds both of them out. I say 400 lums max. NOT WORTH THE PRICE.
Great light, it saved my husbands life!
Thank you 1 Tac, you helped in saving my husbands life!! He was saved in a near drowning accident because he had your flashlight. We are lucky and very grateful!
TC1200 Tactical Flashlight/1TAC
I researched the site and was going to buy 2 TC1200 Flashlights @ ($48.50 per unit) with free shipping. I called their customer service #877-616-3515 to see if I would get the complete charging kit with the purchase and was told the kits were sold separately for approx. $68.00.each. I expressed that there sales site did not mention anything about getting the kit at an extra cost and the agent told me that at checkout it does. Their site shows pictures of this flashlight in a kit box before checkout and is very misleading. Do not assume you get the kit because of the pictures. What a scam! Sorry 1tac.com but you missed a sale from Pete in Arizona.
