With high-output performance in an extremely compact form factor, the new SureFire Y300 Ultra is not your average handheld light. The design is based on the weapon-mountable SureFire X300 Ultra, which has an ambidextrous toggle switch and holds two 123A batteries side-by-side to reduce the light’s size, resulting in a design that fits comfortably in your hand and more convenient to carry than other two-cell lights. The Y300 Ultra has two output levels, 500 lumens of maximum output on high and 15 lumens on low, and is adaptable to a variety of uses with a choice between the magnetic base and belt clip, or a two-way pocket clip.
Built for patrol duty, the dual-output SureFire P1R Peacekeeper is a compact rechargeable LED flashlight that shares many commonalities with the popular two-cell P2X Fury. As an entry-level rechargeable light, the P1R offers simple and reliable operation at a more reasonable price point. The P1R can be powered by the rechargeable lithium-ion battery, as well as two primary 123A batteries, for a maximum output of 600 lumens on either power source. Like the Fury series, the P1R is available in both dual-output (Peacekeeper) and single-output tactical (Peacekeeper Tactical).
Single-cell lights have been encroaching on the “primary light” role is currently held firmly by two-cell lithium 123A lights, and the recently introduced SureFire E1D LED Defender (E1DL) has pushed the capability of compact lights even further. This shortened version of the two-cell E2D LED Defender Ultra has an impressive maximum output of 300 lumens, yet retains the same 1.3 hour runtime as the 200-lumen EB1 Backup. Rather than having a subdued design like the Backup, the SureFire E1D LED Defender is also designed to provide personal protection with its aggressive crenellations.
