Most of our minions are admittedly dyed-in-the-wool Surefire fans when it comes to weapon lights. Insofar as task lights, it can be a real mixed bag. Though you’ll see names you recognize, some items may have indeed sprung from the depths of a gunshow or deep, dark holes of Amazon.com. One new company that caught our attention was Cyclops. They say they are “an innovator in personal and field lighting solutions, continuing to light the way for outdoor professionals and weekend warriors who demand reliability and performance in headlamps, spotlights, and specialty lighting.”
Now, we can’t say one way or another–can anyone chime in with some personal experience?
Here’s what they have to say about their no-frills light.
The TF100 tactical flashlight is lightweight, easy to manipulate and fundamental for everyday carry.
This affordable everyday flashlight is equipped with a Cree® XPG2 LED bulb and produces a light output of 100 lumens on high. The spot to flood capability provides a magnifier beam distance up to 80 meters. Its single-mode operation keeps things simple. A rear tactical switch enables easy on and off function of the light. The TF100 is built to last with its housing that is composed of durable anodized aluminum alloy and is IPX4 weather resistant rated. The TF100 weighs a mere 1.58 ounces for easy, everyday carry. It is powered by one AA battery that is included and has a burn time of 3 hours on high beam.

One glance and I can tell you this light is made in China.
Personally, I do not like buying Chicom items, I prefer to buy items made in America or allied nations instead of China if I can. So I support companies like Surefire, Malkoff, and Polarion instead.
