ModButton Lite is a smaller lighter weight cousin to the original
ModButton. The switch features the same momentary only activation as the
original ModButton. It also features the same high power cable and
switch from ModButton but in a slightly smaller package without the
integrated mount. The switch is made from injection molded plastic and
fully potted to provide extra degree of protection in harsh environments
and ensures a durable long lasting switch.
ModButton Lite utilizes a patented Unity Tactical design which
supports power delivery needed by the next generation of high output
weapon lights like Modlite. A Unity built Surefire® compatible cable lead allows ModButton Lite to be backwardly compatible with all Surefire®,
Arisaka and Modlite Scout bodies as well as Surefire UE and DS00 tail
caps. If constant on is a requirement we recommend using a SF DS00 tail
cap which can be found on Modlite's website here.
One problem that exists today is older legacy switches are not able to
pass the current needed to run current and future generation lights.
These older switch designs do not allow Modlite light heads to run at
full power. Typically these switches reduce output by 15-20%. ModButton
Lite utilizes an updated plug design as well as improved electronics
that allow the ModButton Lite to output at full power so all the lumens
and candela can be put to good use.
The package includes the switch PIC mounting rails and mounting
hardware only no tail cap is supplied.
Note on cable length options: For almost all use cases the
4.5in variant is what you want to buy. Unless you have a special setup
the 4.5 in cable is going to be plenty even running a laser.
