HRT’s Advanced Weapon Light featuring the Valhalla Tactical Omni-Directional Activator or “ODA” is a relatively new entry to the weapon-mounted light market. Available in either an 18350 (shorter) or 18650 (longer) battery version, the LED head advertises a max output of 90,000 candela and 1,700 lumens (raw). Advanced reflector technology makes for a tight focus at long range and uniform spill for close-range use. The flashlight body is available in both direct MLOK mount as well as traditional Picatinny and is fully reversible offering unrestricted mounting options for either left- or right-handed shooters.
The Valhalla Tactical Omni-Directional Activator works pretty much the way you’d expect a product named “Omni-Directional Activator” would work. Pushing the knob in any direction activates the light. Pushing the knob laterally allows for momentary-only activation. Pushing the knob in concentric to the light body allows for both momentary and “click” on/off constant activation.
