The high-performance SureFire LX2 LumaMax(R) LED flashlight produces 10 times the amount of light of a typical two-D-cell flashlight. Rugged aerospace-grade aluminum body withstands regular use in the outdoors and around the house; hard-anodized exterior enhances durability. Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens focuses light into a smooth beam with maximum output and virtually no rings, spots or other annoying imperfections. Coated Borofloat(R) window protects the TIR lens and LED from bumps, drops and other abuse; special coating maximizes light transmission. High and low settings let you choose the lighting level that works best for you. High setting has a maximum output of 200 lumens of blinding white light; low has an output of 15 lumens of low light for at-hand tasks. Solid-state LED is nearly indestructible and is power-regulated to maximize output and runtime. Tailcap on/off switch operates with a simple press and allows for momentary-on of both the low-output flood light and the high-output spot beam. Twist the tailcap for constant-on operation of the flood beam; twist a bit farther for constant-on of the spot beam. Knurled handle and on/off button provide a sure grip. O-rings seal out moisture, allowing the light to be submerged to 1m for up to 30 min. Integrated clip lets you attach the light to a hat brim, belt or pocket; 2-way clip allows light to be carried with the bezel up or down. Operates on two CR123 batteries (included); batteries provide up to 47 hrs. of operation on low and 2 hrs. on high. Includes an adjustable lanyard.


Capable of producing 200 lumens of bright white light, that's 10 times the typical output of a 2D-cell flashlight, the Surefire LX2 LumaMax LED is powered but a single LED and 2 123A lithium batteries. On low light settings, the LX2 LumaMax produces 15 lumens and can run for 47 hours on one set of batteries. With a versatile light beam shaped by a TIR lens, the bright LX2 LumaMax delivers a enough light for good peripheral vision. With a Mil-Spec hard-anodized aerospace aluminum body, the LX2 is lightweight, smooth, and waterproof (to one meter for up to 30 minutes) making it perfect for outdoor and everyday use.

The dual-output LX2 features a high-performance LED capable of producing 200 lumens of blinding white light at its high setting (ten times the output of a typical two-D-cell flashlight) and a useful 15 lumens of light on low. It continues producing useful light levels for 47 hours on a set of batteries. Its bright, versatile beam is shaped by a TIR lens that gathers nearly all of the LED's light and projects it forward, providing plenty of reach with enough surround light to accommodate peripheral vision. The LX2's ergonomic tailcap switch is programmed to deliver max output when pressed all the way down?making it an ideal choice for tactical professionals. Its Mil-Spec hard-anodized aerospace aluminum body is lightweight, smooth, and waterproof (to one meter for up to 30 minutes) making it perfect for outdoor use and everyday carry too.
