The second generation Echo-1 is a serious Pro Grade flashlight with 1200 max lumens and a standard momentary-on switch.  Echo-1 is no longer an entry level model, but an upgraded “power tool” that still fits comfortably in your pocket.

Only 5 left in stock

Echo-1 runs on one 18650 battery. Choose a package with 1 or 2 Extended or Ultra Capacity batteries and single USB/AC or dual AC charger or dual AC/DC/USB charger. The flashlight does not come with batteries or charger unless you add a package below.

SMO gives tighter focus center beam and increased beam distance.


The MF Tactical Echo Series benefited from a major upgrade and, as a result, the second generation Echo Series is “entry level” no more!  The Echo Series is now a full fledged Pro Grade flashlight with material quality and power output equal to its Juno and Pro Tango brothers, but at a price that puts more light in your pocket than ever before imaginable in a $60 flashlight. Still a small, lightweight flashlight at only 6″ in length, with a 1.4″ head diameter and weighing only 5-1/2 ounces, with its 1200 lumen max Cree® XM-L2-U3 LED emitter, the second generation Echo Series achieves the perfect balance of blazing power, compact portability and affordable pricing.  Echo-1 is a single mode (high only) light.

The Echo-1 v.2 is waterproof to IPX-7 standards and includes our deep cut diamond knurling pattern on the flashlight body and tail cap for both a high quality feel and a slip-free grip in any weather conditions. An advanced and highly refined momentary-on tail switch with improved tactile feel and intuitive single-handed operation makes the Echo feel comfortable from the first time it makes its home in your hand. The Echo Series also gets our unique and innovative Bi-Directional Pocket Clip, which can be easily removed if you prefer. Echo Series is built from extra thick, military grade level III anodized aluminum, with its hardened ultra-clear mineral glass recessed deep in the heavy duty bezel to protect from drops or tactical mishaps.  The next generation Echo Series is now as rugged as it is powerful, and it is built in the USA to last a lifetime.

The evolution of the Echo Series dates back all of the way to our original pocket rocket, the T6-1000-3, which the first gen Echo replaced back in 2015.  But the original Echo, while always a good value as an entry level high power flashlight, did not compete with its pro grade stablemates due to the heat dissipation limitations of a smaller head design. By bumping out the head diameter a 1/10th of an inch and completely redesigning its internal structure to greatly improve heat dispersion, the second gen Echo Series now equals the power and beam throw of the more expensive Juno and Pro Tango models, while maintaining its pricing advantage as the most affordable pro grade flashlight ever built by MF Tactical.

There are an ever growing number of “tactical” flashlights offered on the internet these days, but as our long time customers already know, MF Tactical is the real deal, and we design and build our flashlights right here in New Jersey. The difference comes down to quality, and MF Tactical takes pride in the fact that nobody beats us in producing the highest quality tactical LED flashlights designed and built in America, and we stand behind our quality with our one year warranty and legendary customer service.

Echo-1 runs on a single high voltage 18650 rechargeable protected li-ion battery (Do NOT use CR-123A’s or unprotected batteries). While the price shown for the flashlight is without batteries, just use the option menu marked “Select Battery/Charger Package” when you put this light in your cart, and you can choose from a variety of packages made up of 1 or 2 of our top quality Extended or Ultra Capacity 18650 rechargeable li-ion batteries and your choice of AC or AC/DC smart charger, all offered with a package deal and no additional shipping. We also stock a variety of essential accessories, such as weapon and bicycle mounts, remote pressure switches, color filters and a custom ballistic nylon holster.

If you would like to upgrade your Echo-1 to maximize the throw distance of this magnificent emitter, we offer the option to upgrade your reflector to a highly polished SMO smooth reflector. The standard OP or “orange peel” reflector has a textured surface that acts to evenly disburse the light over a wider field, which makes the light have a bias towards flood or spill. As some users prefer their light to have a bias towards throw, which concentrates more of the beam towards the center, sending more of the light farther down field, we offer the option of upgrading your light’s reflector to an SMO reflector.  Think of the difference as the choice of loading your home’s light fixture with a spot light bulb vs. a flood light bulb. If you would want to maximize your light’s throw potential through the use of an SMO reflector, just check the option box when ordering and either upgrade your standard OP reflector to the SMO reflector or include both OP and SMO reflectors.

  1. Jodie Petershagen

    I have had several Monster Flashlights over the past ten years, the Echo-1 being my current one. I have never had a problem with any of my flashlights. I had to replace them, because they were stolen by individuals who no doubt coveted them. I have lost almost all of my sight from retinitis pigmentosa, which begins with night blindness. I began my search for a compact, well built, and extremely bright flashlight when I was seven years old. That was the year I tripped over a bridge on Halloween and ended up with my 12 stitches. That was 51 years ago. My Echo-1 is the reason I can still live independently. Without it, I cannot leave my home by myself, from dusk til dawn. My flashlight enables me to walk my dog at night, take the garbage out, walk to the grocery store, have a social life, etc. I can do so many things that sighted people take for granted. Inside, it enables me to find things I’ve dropped or lost. I have two batteries for it, one in the flashlight, and one always on the charger so I am never left in the dark. There is no greater gift you can give someone who is visually impaired, than the gift of sight. This flashlight was the best gift I ever gave myself. I highly recommend this flashlight.

    Lightning fast delivery and knowledgeable and friendly folks on the phone. The Echo-1 is an exceptionally nice flashlight with a blindingly bright and smooth beam, superb build quality and materials. I had hoped the light would be as described and it has greatly exceeded my expectations.

  3. Gabriel (verified owner)

    I felt I had an enhanced experience shopping here. Dozens of options to modify and create your own personal flashlight.

  4. Rich C (verified owner)

    Love this flashlight. Have bought dozens of cheap flashlights, and they are all in the garbage. This is great and clearly built to last.

  5. Gary Greier

    I have bought two of these flashlights over a year ago and I feel now that I am now well qualified to leave this review. As an maintenance electrician in a cement plant working through the night I needed a flashlight that was an instant on and off, very bright, pocket size, and reliable. Well I am pleased to say I got it all here. Everyone else wants my flashlight. My co-workers call it Gary’s Light Canon.
    The Flashlight has no signs of wearing out. Outstanding quality. A cement plant is a very rugged environment and this Monster Flashlight stood up to all punishments given. Thank You Monster!

    Seems like MF is the only company that makes single mode flashlights these days, and glad they do. Just wanted a simple on/off flashlight, and the echo-1 is great. Constructed out of what is clearly superior materials and very heavy duty and of course bright as hell. I love my echo so far.

  7. Devon (verified owner)

    If you just want a simple light that is real bright, small and built tough, the echo1 is the best. No comparison to the $15 flashlights out there, this one is built to last and worth the $.

  8. Larry Seigal

    I’ve had the Echo-1 several months and it seems to go everywhere with me. The ease of use and ability to be recharged easily has made this my go-to flashlight. I am an engineer and work in a TV control room under low light conditions all the time. Many of my co-workers have purchased the Juno as well as other units for a variety of uses. Well made and reliable, I couldnt ask for more

  9. Marc Thomas (verified owner)

    After studying flashlight options on the internet for over 2 weeks, I decided on the Echo-1 because this company is in the USA, answers their phone and really backs their products. Have been using the light for a week now and I am sure I made the right choice. It is built incredibly well and is now my brightest flashlight.I will report back if anything changes, but looks like I have found my flashlight company. Looking at the Mini Monster for my birthday gift to myself.

  10. Joe (verified owner)

    As a home inspector, I really don’t need a multi-mode tactical flashlight. The Echo-1 fits the bill perfectly for me.
    Simple on-off tail switch operation and a bright, dependable light are what I want, and this flashlight delivers!
