Lighting

Browning is a leading manufacturer of portable battery-powered lighting for hunters and shooters with more than 35 styles in the product line. Learn what Browning does to make the specialized, high-performance lights you need. Every Browning light is designed and engineered in the USA.

FL-1 LIGHT PERFORMANCE STANDARDS – Browning proudly participates in FL-1 light performance standards for measuring and stating performance claims for all portable lights. This includes Brightness (Lumens), Distance, Run Time, Water Resistance and Impact Resistance. FL-1 provides the only reliable apples-to-apples comparison between models and is used by most major manufacturers. Look for these FL-1 symbols on Browning light packaging.

Lumens Icon
LUMENS = BRIGHTNESS

The output of a traditional 2D cell flashlight is approximately 15-20 lumens. The latest LED flashlights can have an output of more than 3500 lumens.

Distance Icon
MAXIMUM DISTANCE

Maximum distance is calculated as the distance from the light source to where it decreases in brightness to 0.25 lux – about the brightness of the full moon on a clear night.

Water Resistant Icon
WATER RESISTANCE

Water resistance is tested by spraying water onto the light from multiple directions. This simulates a heavy, all-day rain.

Run Time Icon
BATTERY LIFE OR RUN TIME

Battery life (run time) is defined as the time elapsed from when the batteries are new to when the light reaches 10% of the original brightness.

Impact Resistance Icon
IMPACT RESISTANCE

Impact resistance measures how well the light resists damage when dropped repeatedly from a height of 1 meter (about 39") onto concrete.

Waterproof Icon
WATERPROOF AND SUBMERSIBLE

Waterproof and submersible assures water cannot get inside the light. This test is conducted for 30 minutes at a water depth of 1 meter (about 39").

USB or USB-C CHARGE

The USB interface has become the modern standard for recharging portable electronic devices. That's why we have a complete line of USB and USB-C compatible lights.

DUAL FUEL

Many of our USB charge lights are designed to run on standard AAA, AA, C or CR123A batteries or on USB rechargeable batteries.

POWER BANK

There is a USB "power out" feature built into many of our products to help keep USB lights and other electronic devices topped off and running at peak performance.

WIDE ANGLE

Lights equipped with Wide Angle Technology produce a very bright, soft light that evenly illuminates your work area and helps soften harsh shadows.

WIDE ANGLE PLUS

Lights equipped with Wide Angle Plus technology produce both a wide angle and long distance beam at the same time or separately to provide extended 180° lighting coverage. 

LED TECHNOLOGY – LEDs are preferred over Xenon bulbs for most uses, thus all Browning lights now use LED designs. LEDs use batteries more efficiently, illuminate at greater distances, emit a clean, even beam and will never burn out under normal use. Like most technology, LEDs keep getting better every year.

HAND-HELD OR HANDS-FREE – Headlamps and cap lights allow the use of both hands for tasks like dressing a deer, fixing a truck or finding a path through the woods. Modern technology makes many headlamps as powerful as larger hand-held flashlights. Some lights are versatile and can be worn as a headlamp, clipped to a shirt pocket or to the brim of a hat.

LONG RUN TIME – By using advanced digital circuitry, highly efficient LEDs and low-resistance switches, Browning is able to offer extra long run times on many lights. These extended run times could be the difference between getting home safely and having to spend the night in the woods.

BATTERIES – Rechargeable Lithium batteries are used in many high-performing Browning lights. Lithium batteries pack twice the power of alkaline batteries for their weight and operate well at very cold temperatures. Other lights in the Browning line use AA and AAA alkaline batteries because they cost less than Lithium batteries and are readily available anywhere in the world. The latest integrated circuit designs in some Browning lights allow alkaline batteries to approach the performance of lithium batteries.

SWITCH SETTINGS – Multiple switch settings (high, low and in-between) help preserve battery life and allow selection of options such as LED color and flashing mode. The lock-out switches found on most Browning lights keep the light from being accidentally turned on in a pack or pocket. A Fast Strobe setting is available on many Browning lights and can be useful for self-protection and for signalling during an emergency.

COLORED LEDs – Red, green and blue LEDs  help preserve night vision and are great for map reading. They are less visible than white light to many types of game animals.
