Save Price SureFire E2D LED Defender Dual-Output LED (200 Lumens)
- Virtually indestructible, microprocessor-controlled, light emitting diode (LED) has no filament to burn out or break; two-stage light lasts for thousands of hours
- Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens produces tightly focused beam with enough secondary light to accommodate peripheral vision
- Crenellated Strike Bezel and scalloped tailcap provide enhanced self-defense capabilities
- Rugged aerospace-grade aluminum body, Mil-Spec Type III hard anodized in black
The E2DL Defender LED Flashlight performs double duty as both a high-quality, everyday flashlight and a reliable self-defense tool. The durable and compact flashlight provides dual-output LED lighting with a virtually indestructible power-regulated LED emitter. With a tactical high mode of 200 lumens, the E2DL Defender can overwhelm an aggressor's night adapted vision instantly. The Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens focuses the light into a powerful beam that will still cast a wide enough swath for peripheral vision. Meanwhile, the flashlight's scalloped tailcap and Crenellated Strike Bezel provide additional tools for your defense. The E2DL Defender is operated by a pushbutton tailcap that allows you to activate the light's high beam instantly or select between modes. The low, 5-lumen output offers runtimes of up to 76 hours for long-term, navigational use. Built to last, the E2DL Defender features a mil-spec type III build of hard, anodized aerospace aluminum. The handle is textured for a secure grip, and the flashlight is equipped with a belt clip for easy carrying.

Durable: The LED feature sold me. Far more durable than the regular bulbs. There is a great lens on this light. Very thick and does a great job focusing the light. Also, I don't know if this is a specified feature, but my light spent over a day wallowing in diesel fuel (almost completely submersed). I cleaned the light with non-corrosive oil and that was it...still lighting up the night.
Shock Proof: I have no idea how many times I dropped this with no negative effect to the light. This light was on me during a dismounted patrol when we were hit with an enemy fragmentation grenade. It blew out four of our tac-lights on our weapons, but I had my E2D as back up to assist in clearing the area. The light was clipped to my belt on the side of the blast, so it was even more exposed than my weapon light. Could we file this under 'lifesaver'?

Battery life: Dual output feature is great. I sort of overlooked this feature when I purchased it. Having a high output and low output is an excellent ability for the user. High output is great for outdoor use and temporary blinding. Low output is ideal for indoor use when you don't want to compromise your natural night vision.
Defender Bezel: Another feature I overlooked. I never used it in a 'defensive' manner, but it contributes to the durability. Dropping the light lens first, countless times, has done nothing to the light. Additionally, this bezel is great for breaking windows (non-ballistic of course). Occassionally breaking a window on a local national's vehicle/home is mission essential (extracting people from vehicle accidents, gaining access to the vic/house without using a known entry point, or many other reasons). Hot knife through butter.
So far my light has spent 10 months in Iraq, 13 months state-side in training areas, and 5 months (and going) in Afghanistan. Initially, I was apprehensive about paying $120 for a backup light. Knowing what I know now, I would have paid twice the asking price. This is one of those items that is an essential part of my kit and I will own one for the rest of my life. Should this one ever fail...doubtful...I will certainly purchase another one. I'm not sure why it is so much now, but look around the net for the same light. I know you can get it for less.

I don't know how else to say this. This illumination tool will completely change the way you do business. For the average person, a flashlight is sort of a novelty device that can come in handy once in a while. For campers, emergency workers, and disaster conscious folks, the usefulness that the E2D LED Defender brings to the table is a bargain at $150.
Not only is this thing ridiculously bright, but it's bright in a way that is completely next level. This is no less than a search light or spot light. It doesn't just make things more visible, it mimics sunlight. You can see vivid colors and depth and this thing casts it's light FAR.
I mean I-can-look-into-the-bushes-two-blocks-away-far.
And to top it all off, it's strong enough and shaped just right incase you ever need to take a chunk out of some idiot's head after you just blinded him. Seriously.

You will NEVER find me without my torch. I could be wearing a 3 piece suit and you can bet money that I'll have my E2D LED Defender and a pocket knife on my person. It's become THAT integral in my daily life.
Enter the E2D LED.
I was first impressed with the smallness of this flashlight. It fits very nicely into my hand, and equally so in a pocket. It feels very light. The double-tap activation switch works well, and I believe it to be a great bit of practical design. I do not miss the "twist" type of activation switch from my previous Surefire. Switching from High to Low power on the E2D LED does take a bit of practice, but once you get your timing down, it's not a consideration.
The full-power brightness of this light is awe-inspiring. I still feel almost blinded when initially firing this light up. I sometimes squint to overcome it. Seriously. The lower lumen setting is more than adequate for most night-work, but I can see the effect of shining the full-power light into someone's eyes. The light cast by this flashlight is smooth, even, and far-reaching.
