Review of the APC556 PDW by Milcomp

22.10.2019

The boys from Milcomp visited us in order to test the APC556 PDW. Here is their review:

Streamlight flashlight Sidewinder Compact II, IR, coyote

The Sidewinder Compact II accepts multiple power sources: one CR123A lithium battery, one AA lithium battery or one AA alkaline battery to provide ultimate flexibility in the field. The same great features as the original Sidewinder Compact®: lightweight, multi-directional and multi-functional. The difference? It accepts a variety of different battery types to ensure you always have a power source wherever and whenever duty calls. Uses one 3V CR123A lithium battery (included). Also accepts 1 AA lithium battery or 1 AA alkaline battery
