Surefire are the world leaders in torch technology, continually raising the standard of torch design and function. They produce the world's finest compact high-intensity flashlights for outdoors, self-defense, military, law enforcement, and general applications. The beams produced by Surefire torches do not suffer from bright spots or rings like many other torch brands do. With Surefire you get a flawless smooth beam.
As their name suggests, Executive Series illumination tools are powerful and efficient with impeccable styling. While the Executives may be understated when it comes to their size, they're big when it comes to performance.
The E1E Exective Elite is a bit over 3 inches (76mm) long, weighs a tad over two ounces fully loaded, runs for an incredible 90 minutes on a single 123A lithium battery and kicks out nearly as much light as a much bulkier heavy 2 x D-Cell flashlight. Its size and weight make it perfect for everyday carrying in your pocket, purse or briefcase, or for taking when travelling. Clip it to the brm or bill of a hat for quick, hands-free illumination.
The E2E Executive Elite is a bigger, brighter, two-battery version of the E1E. It throws out a 60 lumen tactical-level beam of light and runs for 75 minutes, making it an excellent choice for everyday use.
For a small, self-defence flashlight with added bite, look no further than the E2D Executive Defender, essentially an E2E with teeth. The E2E boasts the same performance figures as the E2E but comes equipped with a crenallated bezel and scalloped tailcap for enhanced self-defence capabilities.
What goes into a Surefire Xenon Torch
Although they may be old school technology, incandescant lamps are capable of generating high output beams that, when teamed with the right reflector and bezel, can reach far into the night. And of all the incandescant torches on the market, Surefire xenon incandescants are by far the best.
An incandescant lamp works by running electric current through a tungsten filament until it heats up enough to emit light. Off-the-shelf, run-of-the-mill filaments wont do for Surefire, they use custom designed, custom wound filaments in their lamps, In addition, to maximize the lamps output and operating life, while minimizing tungsten boil off (a process that can form a layer of light blocking tungsten on the inside wall of the bulb, Surefire bulbs are filled with expensive high pressure xenon gas and, in some models, a halogen addative.
Surefire's high performance xenon lamps are precision placed within perfectly shaped aluminium reflectors coated with light smoothing micro-texture. The result is a beam with no obvious hot spots, dark rings or imperfections. A protective window made from tempered Pyrex glass coated with a layer of anti-reflective materieal to minimize light loss covers the reflector and bulb assembly. Wrap it all up in a tough, aerospace grade aluminium or polymer body. Seal the body with O-rings. Power it with compact lithium batteries that carry a 10 year shelf life. Now you've got a world class illumination tool that performs at the highest level in virtually any conditions.
