Also new for 2023 rom Viridan is their rechargeable CTL series of lights and lasers, compatible with Viridian’s safe charge magnetic charging cables, plus updated models of the C5 and C5L that are even smaller and lighter, and now have SafeCharge and HRF features added. Per Viridian:
Don’t let its tiny size fool you. The all-new CTL is the smallest most versatile weapon light on the market today. It boasts a 525 lumen peak output plus up to 60 minutes of run time. The CTL also packs in the industry leading features you expect from Viridian such as the legendary patented INSTANT-ON tech. Introducing patent-pending SafeCharge, the gotta-have ultra convenient rechargeable power source system that is ready when you are. Also new is HRF the built-in Holster Retention Feature for better holster compatibility than ever possible before.
The CTL+ is the perfect blend of performance and functionality. Kicking out 1,100 blinding lumens and up to 60 minutes of run time, the CTL+ is capable of handling any of your low light situations and is the most powerful weapon light ever built by Viridian.
Viridian invented green laser pistol sights almost two decades ago, ushering in a new era of visibility and inspiring change across the industry. Viridian is known for building the brightest and best green lasers on the market. The all-new C5 is re-introduced with a smaller size profile and a host of new features making it the best pistol laser ever built.
The C5L started it all – as the first ever compact green laser sight and light. Others followed but the C5L was always the original and the benchmark. The all-new C5L is better than ever and loaded with features making it the leader of the pack once again.
