Those of you who know us know that we don't like dual output lights for defensive or 'tactical' purposes. If you disagree with us- or if you're just looking for a high-quality task or multi-purpose light- this is a good choice. It's typical Surefire quality, and it offers incredible brightness OR a very dim 5 lumen light for navigating or other tasks.
The E2D LED Defender® Ultra is a compact 500-lumen flashlight featuring dual-output capability and self-defense enhancements. Utilizing a virtually indestructible high-performance LED and a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens, the E2DL Ultra is activated with a pushbutton tailcap click switch that also selects output levels: press or click once for a high-intensity 500-lumen white-light beam—ten times the light needed to overwhelm the night-adapted vision of an aggressor. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds for a 5-lumen ultra-long runtime low beam that's suitable for navigating at night or performing close-up tasks for hours. The Defender's crenellated Strike Bezel® provides further defensive options should the need arise.
