Product Comparison: TX7 & G15


Today we’re comparing two of our most popular clip lights, the TX7 LED flashlight and the G15 LED flashlight. Both have clips that make it easy to attach the torch to a nearby surface, or even the bill of a baseball cap. Auto mechanics, home inspectors, and anyone else who requires a compact, versatile light will be attracted to these flashlights, which by the way would make perfect stocking stuffers! To help you pick between these two COAST Products, we’ve produced a handy table, below. Here you can compare and contrast the various attributes of these handy clip lights.

All in all, the TX7’s flexible neck may make it easier to peer into tight spaces, while the G15’s durability and longer run time makes it a better choice in rough environments. Additionally, while the TX7 is lighter (and therefore easier to clip onto a baseball cap) it has a shorter run time and beam distance. By examining the specs listed above, you can figure out which of these clip lights is best for your needs.
