Product Description

ModButton Lite is a smaller, lighter-weight cousin to the original ModButton. The switch features the same momentary only activation as the original ModButton. It also features the same high power cable and switch from ModButton but in a slightly smaller package without the integrated mount. The switch is made from injection-molded plastic and fully potted to provide an extra degree of protection in harsh environments and ensure a durable long-lasting switch.

The Dual Lead variant is Modlite’s same Modbutton Lite, but has both a Surefire®/Modlite and Crane Laser lead. This Modbutton Lite activates both leads simultaneously, allowing for an excellent vis override functionality of both white light and visible laser. There is no way to select a single lead for activation. For that, Modlite recommends the Unity TAPS SNYC. Available here.

ModButton Lite utilizes a patented Unity Tactical design which supports power delivery needed by the next generation of high output weapon lights like Modlite. A Unity-built Surefire® compatible cable lead allows ModButton Lite to be backwardly compatible with all Surefire®, Arisaka, and Modlite Scout bodies as well as Surefire UE and DS00 tail caps.

One problem that exists today is older legacy switches are not able to pass the current needed to run current and future generation lights. These older switch designs do not allow Modlite light heads to run at full power. Typically these switches reduce output by 15-20%. ModButton Lite utilizes an updated plug design as well as improved electronics that allow the ModButton Lite to output at full power so all the lumens and candela can be put to good use.

The package includes the switch PIC mounting rails and mounting hardware only no tail cap is supplied.

Note from the manufacturer on cable length options: For almost all use cases the 4.5in variant is what you want to buy. Unless you have a special setup the 4.5 in cable is going to be plenty even running a laser.

great idea, but had to send it back

Love the concept but had to send it in for warranty repair. The two switches stick. Creates a delay and phantom double clicks.

Be careful

Prolapsed my otal. Very inconsistent.


Perfect solution for a light and laser unit without having to take up a lot of rail space. I'll definitely be doing future business with Milspec Retail also.
