SureFire flashlights are nothing more than the best flashlights you can buy today. That's high praise for a company that primarily focuses on military flashlights and police flashlights, but they really have earned it. Drop your flashlight often? No problem! These products will work time and time again, even in tight situations; like construction flashlights or firefighter flashlights would need to. Quality is clearly the most important factor for SureFire, from the aerospace grade Type III aluminum body and the tempered Pyrex window with anti-reflective coating to the Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens, there are no corners cut in the manufacture of these rugged flashlights. The SureFire U2 Ultra flashlight is a small six output LED flashlight for backpacking and general use. It uses a virtually indestructible and vibration proof, power-regulated light-emitting diode (LED) light source plus a tail cap switch for instant selection of desired output level. Choose from a long-runtime low beam for close-up work or a long runtime high beam with almost five times the light of a big 2-D cell flashlight. You get a long runtime, small size, high light output, and 10-year battery shelf life, which make it perfect for an everyday-carry light as well as for extreme locations and conditions.
The SureFire U2 flashlights will fit in the palm of your hands and maintain their brightness very well through the life of the battery. They come with a convenient belt clip to hook on to a helmet or other hat for hands-free use. The clip also works well on a belt to in a pocket. It is about five inches long and it weighs roughly 3 ounces. The small size allows it to easily store in your tackle box, pocket, tool box, utility drawer, or desk. The U2 Ultra uses (2) 123A Lithium batteries; two are included with the flashlight. The run time on average is 40 hours on low power. The bulb is made with a pre-focus high-output tactical level beam so bright that it can temporarily blind and disorient a person or animal. The bulbs will last for thousands of hours which ensure more useable time and less down-time switching burned out bulbs.
There are several reasons that LED lights, like the SureFire U2 Ultra, are preferable to conventional incandescent lamps. For one, SureFire LED lights will last thousands of hours versus less than fifty hours for even the top-of-the-line incandescent lamps. Another benefit would be that LED lights produce almost no invisible infrared radiation, as opposed to most incandescent lamps, which emit over 85% of their output as infrared. Because of this, LED lights are much more efficient in producing light than incandescent lamps; very important for battery operated flashlights. Third, because LED lights are very sturdy in construction, and have no mechanically sensitive parts such as filaments or glass bulbs. They are resistant to harsh shock making them perfect for mounting on firearms or for use in intense environments.
