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.

This 200-lumen headlight has four output modes, two beam profiles, a removable head strap, and can even be used as a standalone work light.
