New for 2013 from SureFire, 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 E2D LED "Defender Ultra" flashlight 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 crenellated strike bezel provides further defensive options should the need arise. Slender and powerful, the E2D LED "Defender Ultra" is an ideal everyday-carry light.
Other features of the SureFire E2D LED "Defender Ultra" pocket flashlight include a virtually indestructible LED emitter, regulated to maximize output and runtime and equipped with a TIR lens that produces a tight beam with enough surround light to grant optimal peripheral vision. The coated tempered window resists impact while still maximizing the light, while the Mil-Spec hard-anodized, high-strenght aerospace aluminium body with a weatherproof O-Ring and gasket sealing grants extreme durability. The dual-output tailcap click switch allows a momentary on-high output of 500 lumens (2.25 hrs runtime) or a variable low ranging from five to fifteen lumens, whose runtime may vary from 2.25 to 67.75 hours. The SureFire E2D LED "Defender Ultra" flashlight comes equipped with a reversible belt clip and two high-energy CR123A batteries with 10-years shelf life, and fits the SureFire proprietary V91 holster in the head-up position. Launched at the latest NRA Show, the SureFire E2D LED "Defender Ultra" flashlight will soon be distributed worldwide. No informations concerning a suggested retail price have been released so far.
