SureFire Mega Lumens Lights

Share:

SureFire has been updating their line of lights. They are calling it Mega Lumens Monday.

 

SureFire XC1

First up is their XC1-B Ultra Compact. It is their normal XC1 but on steroids. The XC1 is their smallest weapon light.

It is powered by just a mere AAA battery and is now cranking out a 300 lumens. This is actually similar to their Titan Plus keychain light which is also powered by a AAA battery and pushes 300 lumens out the front.

SureFire has also updated the switches on the XC1-B Ultra so now you can activate constant on with the toggles. Before constant on was achieved by a shuttle switch in the middle of the light.

The updated XC1-B Ultra will retail for $299.

SureFire XH35

300 lumens is too anemic for you? Well SureFire has updated their X300UH. It is the XH35 and it has a potent 1,000 lumens.

XH35

It is based on the same X300UH so it is compatible with the SureFire Masterfire holster.  Take a close look at the bottom of the XH35 it has some interesting differences from the X400 and X300 weaponlights. According to the photo below, it is dual output and has a strobe feature. This is a first for SureFire pistol lights. They have never had a strobe or dual output before. The high is 1,000 lumens and low puts the XH35 down to 500 lumens.

The XH35 has a new LED and reflector design that SureFire is calling MaxVision

XH35 MV

At the moment pricing and availability hve not been determined just yet.

1,500 Lumen Scoutlight

Images have been leaked of a new Scoutlight that is screaming at 1,500 lumens.

Scoutlight DFT

There are some interesting things going on with this new light. It is rumored to be DFT (Dual Fuel Tactical). Meaning it will be powered by the standard 2xCR123 batteries but now they have increased the diameter of the body to accomodate 18650 rechargeable cells. The truly interesting feature is the 1,500 lumens. It supposedly only reaches that high level of lumens when using the 18650 battery, not the two CR123 batteries. When using two CR123s the Scoutlight puts out a respectable 1,200 lumens. This is odd since traditionally more voltage is how one gets more lumens. There is a reason a single cell light, like the XC1 can only output 300 lumens but dual cell lights can push more than double that. 

New Handheld Lights

SureFire has also been working on some of their handheld lights. They have updated the G2X and G2Z with MaxVision.

G2Z MV

G2Z-MV Features

  • High-performance LED and specially developed reflector create wide, smooth MaxVision Beam

  • CombatGrip provides secure hold in nearly all conditions

  • High-impact Nitrolon® polymer body for corrosion resistance and durability

  • Durable, optically coated, polycarbonate window resists impact and maximizes light transmission

  • Includes a lanyard to enable the use of both hands during manipulations/reloading when the lanyard is looped around the support hand palm. Also makes it easier to pull the G2Z out by the lanyard when stored in pant pocket

  • Backed by SureFire’s No-Hassle Guarantee

G2XMV

G2X-MV Features

  • High-performance LED and specially developed reflector create wide, smooth MaxVision Beam

  • Two output levels – low is activated first, then high for maximum light

  • Press the tailcap switch for momentary-on low, press further to click constant-on low, return to off and press or click on again within two seconds for high

  • High-impact Nitrolon® polymer body for corrosion resistance and durability

  • Durable, optically coated, polycarbonate window resists impact and maximizes light transmission

  • Backed by SureFire’s No-Hassle Guarantee

SureFire is also coming out with a new light called the EDCL2-T

EDCL-2

The Everyday Carry Light 2, an upgraded version of their popular EB2 Backup. It has a high-output LED delivering 1,200 lumens on high and a 5 lumens on low.

Features

  • Highly versatile light serves as an everyday carry light or an improvised weapon light

  • Virtually indestructible LED emitter regulated to maximize output and runtime

  • Fully press tailcap switch for high output, and slightly press tailcap switch for low. Twist for constant on.

  • High-strength aerospace aluminum body, Mil-Spec hard anodized for extreme durability

  • Body and tailcap are knurled for a secure grip

  • Two-way clip permits light to be carried bezel up or down

  • Includes two high-energy 123A batteries with 10-year shelf life

The tailcap is particular intriguing. From the description above it sounds like it works like their older lights like the LX2 and A2L Aviator. They had a dual output tail cap as well. Half press of the tail cap button gets you low, then push harder and the light switches to full brightness.

The EDCL2-T retails for just $179 on their website.
