T2000 Tactical Flashlight Reviews
About T2000 Tactical Flashlight
The T2000 Tactical Flashlight, found online at Special.TacticalT2000.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 Survival Gear Info website, which is promoting this product, nearly 95% of American households are simply not prepared for even the most basic emergency situation because they have old, outdated, weak flashlights at home. And while this may not seem like a serious problem, it actually can be.
Though most people generally only think they need a flashlight when the power goes out at home, or if you are looking for something under the bed or behind the dresser, the truth is that flashlights can actually be lifesaving tools. The website says to consider a situation where you are stuck on the side of the road in a remote area, or are trying to alert rescue or emergency workers in a natural disaster. A basic store bought flashlight will be no help in that situation whatsoever.
A tactical flashlight like the T2000 Tactical Flashlight is so powerful that it is used by firemen, police officers, hunters, campers, and military forces. The website says that it emits a “massive 700 lumens of light” and can be seen nearly two miles away. In addition, it is made from materials that could easily withstand an accident or other disaster.
The T2000 Tactical Flashlight is currently available for $54, which they quote as being 75% off the normal retail price of $216.00. 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 on their website, but unfortunately nowhere on their website or in their Terms & Conditions is there any information at all regarding returns or refunds. Concerned customers should definitely contact their Customer Service team before making a purchase to get a full explanation of any existing Return or Refund Policy, and customers who make this purchase before speaking to a Customer Service team member should not expect any opportunity to get a refund if they are unhappy with this product.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 877-620-8999.
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 any information on returns and refunds is just another sign that customers should stay far away.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many other flashlights available on the market, including tactical grade flashlights for customers who are interested in purchasing that kind of product. Some of them will only be available from online retailers, while others may be available at retailers near you, depending on where you live, so customers who are unhappy with this product should be able to find an alternative that better meets their needs.

8 ‘T2000 Tactical Flashlight’ Reviews
$4.99 shipping followed 3 weeks later with $49.99 charge. Reason given was that I did not return the $2.50(Harbor Freight) within 14 days. Never saw this requirement for the Free Flashlight.
This company is pulling a widespread scam with many different scenarios revolving around the primary task of obtaining your credit card information and then, later, adding unauthorized charges to your account.
In my case, a reputable company that I've dealt with and trusted for over 6 years, offered me the opportunity to complete a survey on their website and receive a "free" gift. After I completed the survey, I was redirected to the Tactical website to choose one of three items. I chose the T2000. Then after entering my shipping address, I was told that I would receive my gift if I agreed to pay shipping charges of $4.99. Although I was a bit irritated by this request since the T2000 was supposed to be a "free" gift, I agreed and entered my credit card info.
WRONG!!! I now realize, "I was caught with my pants down!" And I'm supposed to be Web Savvy! About a month later my bank notified me of a suspicious hit on my account for $49.99. I looked back in my records and noticed the $4.99 shipping fee had gone through, but the $49.99 was stopped by the bank. Long story short, they continued to hit my account until my bank inadvertently allowed the charge to go through. Tactical must know my bank will not block any attempts until AFTER a denied request has been PAID! I've submitted a fraud action and blocked Tactical from ever adding more charges. This is going to take several weeks to resolve.
Ditto - billed $34.99 but we have ended up with a recurring $19.99 fee each month - and have no idea how that got signed up. Our Credit Card will help us dispute (USAA company is the best!)
Flashlights are nothing special...
They shouldn't even get one star. As others have stated, they keep charging your credit card. They say you opted in to a membership. It must be in the fine print and is a pretty low thing to do.
big scam and crooks,purchased a dozen or more of these lights for Christmas gifts,when I finally got them they came without the chargers and no rechargeable batteries,just a cheap light that cannot be used without the charger and batteries,after numerous contacts with company to no avail I chunked them in trash and wrote it off as lesson learned,if it sounds too good to be true it probably is,
They continued to bill my credit card $19.99 more than once. What a scam. Avoid any purchase from this company!
THE PEOPLE ARE SCAMMERS!
ORDERED FREE FLASHLIGHT FOR SHIPPING CHARGE OF $14.99.
RECIEVED FLASHLIGHT IT IS OK. NOTHING AMAZING!
2 WEEKS LATER THEY BILL MY CREDIT CARD $19.99!!!!!
THEY SAY IM A "MEMBER"!!!!!!!
THAT I AGREED TO BE A MEMBER AND THE CHARGE IS $19.99!
I DID NOT AGREE TO SHIT!
THEY ARE SCAMMERS BILLING MY CREDIT CARD THINKING THAT I WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE THE FRAUDULENT CHARGE!!!
VERY SHADY PEOPLE!
DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE!!
Their website is very misleading! I ordered their flashlight for $.14.99 with free shipping, then had to go through many pages offering more products, after declining all the other offers I got to the summery page which does not allow for review but placed the order already for $95.. So far I have been on their help line for 30 min. and I also e-mailed about it with no response. My advice is to stay clear and go to Amazon instead..
