The SureFire EB1 Backup is an evolution of the original E1B Backup and differs in output and switching. The EB1 now emits 200 lumens on high output and five lumens on low output, and the switch is the non-clicker type.
The low output is almost a requirement. Handheld flashlights like the EB1 are now powerful enough that they are almost too bright to use. 200 lumens is very bright. If you try to illuminate your engine bay at night you will get light splashed back at you and get blinded. That's why the EB1 features the low output of five lumens. This is a very usable amount of light for most tasks, and yet the 200 lumens is instantly available if you want more power or reach.
The annoying clicker switch is gone. No more toggling between modes. No more quickie presses to enable different functions. The EB1 features unique switching originally developed for law enforcement and favored by savvy Surefire users - lightly press tailcap for momentary low output; press harder for momentary high output, twist tailcap clockwise for constant low, twist clockwise more for constant high, and twist counterclockwise for lockout. This switching is very intuitive and simple.
The light weight, small size, lack of sharp edges or points, two-way pocket clip, and dual outputs make the EB1 ideal for everyday carry and use.
The SureFire The G2X Tactical represents a market-changing move for SureFire Products. The G2X is a 200-lumen unit, yet it is affordably priced. The G2X is such a powerful and cheap unit that it almost obsoletes SureFire's other lights.
The G2X uses a virtually unbreakable LED,
to generate a brilliant, penetrating, and perfectly pre-focused 200-lumen beam.
The tough Nitrolon polymer body is smoothly sculpted for a comfortable, secure grip and resists scratches, abrasion, and corrosion.
A lock-out tailcap allows the light to be locked in the off position to prevent inadvertent discharge of light during tactical operations, transportation, or storage.
The G2X also features unique switching originally developed for law enforcement - twist for constant on, or depress the tailcap button for momentary illumination or emergency signaling. Comes complete with two SF123A Lithium Batteries.
The X300 is a leap forward in WeaponLight Technology and may obsolete other WeaponLight designs in the next few years. With the X300, gone are the TurboHead lamps, tape switches, high battery consumption, overall bulk, and mounting permanence of past WeaponLight designs. The X300 may be attached to pistol, shotgun, rifle, or carbine instantly and without tools, and may be detached and switched between weapons instantly and without tools.
For example, simply detach the X300 from this Glock 35 and mount it onto this Glock 23. The switch takes but a few seconds and no tools are required to do the switch.
If your weapon has a Universal or Picatinny rail on it, then you can mount the X300. If your weapon does not have an integral rail, you will have to add a rail to mount the X300.
The X300's proprietary Rail-Lock System lets the user instantly attach or detach the X300 to or from weapons equipped with Universal or Picatinny rails, and the X300 comes standard with different locking plates for Universal or Picatinny rail use.
Mounting the X300 is very simple. Simply slide the X300 over the weapon's Universal or Picatinny rail and let it lock into place. The motion is as simple as inserting a magazine.
The X300 is a very compact unit, even when mounted to a compact service pistol like the Heckler & Koch P2000. The X300 doesn't overwhelm the P2000 at all. On a long gun the X300 feels absolutely dinky.
The X300 is hardly wider than a Glock.
In fact, the X300 was tailor-made for the Glocks, and the X300's locking bar and radiused rear mate perfectly with the Glocks. In fact, it would appear that Heckler & Koch copied the Glocks' trigger guard dimensions on its USA version of the P2000 to obtain as nice a fit as possible with the X300.
Long-slide Glock models like the Glock 35 are long enough that the front of the X300 sits flush with the front of the slide.
The X300 features a solid-state, electronically regulated LED that generates 170 lumens of white light and maintains tactical-level amounts of light output for a remarkable 2.4 hours. The older WeaponLights produced 65 lumens for one hour or 120 lumens for 20 minutes, and these units were quite remarkable for their time. The X300's Total Internal Reflection lens creates a bright, tightly focused central beam with plenty of reach but still with sufficient halo for peripheral vision. A tempered Pyrex window protects the LED and features anti-reflective coating to maximize light transmission.
Unlike other dedicated WeaponLights, you can also operate the X300 in the hand like a standard flashlight.
The X300's hard-anodized, aerospace-grade aluminum body protects the X300's electronics against tough use.
O-ring seals and gaskets seal the X300 against dust and make all parts of the X300 waterproof to 22 meters.
A small R-clip on the X300's battery locking catch prevents the unit from opening under the harshest recoil.
The X300 is completely ambidextrous. Whether you are right-handed or left-handed does not matter. Whether you are shooting right-handed or left-handed does not matter. Whether you are shooting one-handed or two-handed does not matter. Whether you activate the X300 with your shooting hand or support hand does not matter. Whether you want momentary light or constant light does not matter. Whether you mount the X300 onto handgun or long gun does not matter. The X300 will easily handle all of these situations.
To illustrate, here is the X300 mounted onto a Heckler & Koch P2000. You can see that the identical switches are located on both sides of the trigger guard.
If you are shooting one-handed and want momentary illumination, just push forward on the switch with your trigger finger and the X300 will illuminate. Obviously, this works equally well with the right hand's trigger finger.
If you want constant illumination, flip the switch up or down with your trigger finger and X300 will light up and stay on. In the photo above, the port-side switch is flipped downward and the starboard-side switch in turn flips up, activating the constant light on the X300. The X300 achieves the same constant-on with the port-side switch flipped up and the starboard-side switch flipped down.
If you are shooting with two hands and want momentary illumination, push forward with your support-side thumb. For constant light, flip the switch up or down with your support-side thumb. It doesn't matter whether you flip the switch up or down, and either movement will produce constant light.
The X300 works from either side. Its combination toggle/push switches provide convenient, ambidextrous, and fail-safe operation for momentary-on and constant-on modes.
Take your personal-defense weapons to the next level with the revolutionary X300.
All SureFire flashlights and WeaponLights are extremely robust and far stronger than all other flashlights currently on the market. About the only things that can go wrong with them are the Lamp Assembly can burn out or otherwise become damaged, or the batteries can drain. The SC1 Spares Carrier shown above was designed to meet those two possibilities and provides a convenient way to store and carry a spare Lamp Assembly and batteries. This unit is a necessary piece of equipment for every serious SureFire user. SC1 The Spares Carrier is waterproof, airtight, and crushproof. There is no better way to store your spare batteries or Lamp Assembly. The SC1 will hold six SF123A Lithium Batteries and one replacement P60, P61, P90, P91, or X80 Lamp Assembly. The batteries and Lamp Assembly are the weakest components in the SureFire Flashlights. Having replacement parts dry and handy will ensure that you can replace any inoperable part quickly and safely in the field.
While the exterior of the SC1 Spares Carrier features a lightly pebbled finish, the interior is polished so as to permit the user to see the contents of the Spares Carrier without having to open the unit.
The floor of the SC1 Spares Carrier features dimples and the walls feature bolsters to hold the SF123A Lithium Batteries securely.
When inserted, the six SF123A batteries are securely held and do not rattle or abrade each other.
The center of the SC1 Spares Carrier is shaped to accommodate a spare P60, P61, P90, P91, or X80 Lamp Assemblies, which are all identical in size.
Shown is a P60 Lamp Assembly, once the standard Lamp Assembly on the six-volt SureFire flashlights and WeaponLights. The bottom of the lamp assembly is fitted with two springs. The shape of the SC1 Spares Carrier's center is shaped to accommodate the larger of these two springs.
The Lamp Assembly fits perfectly onto the SC1 Spares Carrier and does not move laterally, where it could otherwise abrade the SF123A Lithium Batteries stored with the Lamp Assembly.
The top of the SC1 Spares Carrier is shaped so as to mate to the Lamp Assembly's reflector.
When the top cover is threaded onto the bottom of the SC1 Spares Carrier, the Lamp Assembly's reflector will mate to the top cover. The Lamp Assembly's spring will compress slightly when the top cover is threaded fully and the Lamp absolutely will not jiggle inside the SC1 Spares Carrier.
Here the bottom of the SC1 Spares Carrier is loaded with six SF123A Lithium Batteries and a spare P60 Lamp Assembly.
The SC1 Spares Carrier features an O-ring seal around the threads. When the top cover is threaded onto the bottom, the SC1 Spares Carrier is airtight and watertight. The unit is also crushproof. There is no safer or better way to store and carry your spare parts for your SureFire flashlights and WeaponLights. You could store a fully loaded SC1 Spares Carrier under water for several years, and still have perfectly capable batteries and spare Lamp Assembly.
The SC1 Spares Carrier comes standard with a lanyard.
The SC3 Spares Carrier is identical in design and execution, but is designed specifically for the A2 Aviator flashlight.
Unlike the SC1 Spares Carrier, the SC3 Spares Carrier holds only four SF123A Lithium Batteries. This lesser capacity is by design, as the A2 Aviator does draws much less battery power than the CombatLights.
The MA02 Incandescent Lamp is stored inside the SC3 Spares Carrier.
Keep your A2 Aviator running with the SC3 Spares Carrier.
Optimized for use in SureFire flashlights, SureFire SF123A Lithium Batteries pack a lot of power into a small package. And-unlike regular batteries, the SF123A Lithium Batteries boast a full 10-year shelf life, which means they will be ready when you need them, every time. Don't be confused by the low price of these batteries. They are top quality. SureFire sells the SF123A Lithium Batteries at close to cost to ensure that SureFire users have available to them an abundant and reasonably priced supply of batteries. When you buy these batteries from EE, you don't get two batteries taped together or something. The two-pack packages are factory sealed and never opened to ensure that you are receiving factory fresh batteries and not some batteries that might or might not be new. That way, you can depend on them to be powerful when you need them.
We also sell the batteries in a 12-pack. The packs remain sealed until you open them, so that you know you are getting factory fresh batteries. Lithium Batteries have a very flat discharge curve. That is, they appear to be fully powered even though half of their power is gone. Therefore, it is very difficult to tell when a lithium battery is used. We sell only sealed packages of the SF123A Lithium Batteries so that you know you are getting the freshest and the best.
For your auxiliary lighting for your vehicle, we both use and recommend Hella Auxiliary Lights because we believe they are the best of their kind.
