    SOLD: Photographer's Ultimate Flashlight (torch) - Surefire U2

    This is a bit of an unusual listing, but I consider this to be the photographer's ultimate flashlight because you can dial the brightness of the LED from a night-vision-preserving 2 lumens all the way to a blinding 100 lumens.

    Surefire flashlights are the gold standard of flashlights, machined from solid aircraft grade aluminum and hard anodized to military standards. In fact, they're standard issue to US combat soldiers.

    Specifications

    Max Output 100 lumens
    Low Output / Runtime 2 lumens / 175 hours
    Tactical Runtime* 2 hours
    Length 6 inches
    Bezel Diameter 1.47 inches
    Weight w/Batteries 5.7 ounces
    Batteries 2, CR123A

    *Total runtime (at highest setting for multiple-output flashlights) until output drops below 50 lumens

    Description
    U2-BK-WH
    The U2 is a variable-output flashlight that provides six levels of light output. It uses a virtually indestructible power-regulated LED emitter and a precision micro-textured reflector to produce a consistently smooth beam at any level. A rotating selector ring just below the flashlight head provides no-look control of output levels: twist to change beam intensity from an ultra long-runtime 2-lumen low beam suitable for map reading, to intermediate-output beams, all the way to a brilliant 100-lumen high beam—five times the light of a big two-D-cell flashlight. Its pushbutton tailcap click switch provides secure, ergonomic activation control: press for momentary-on, press further to click constant-on.
    Features

    * Virtually indestructible LED emitter regulated to maximize output and runtime
    * Six output levels—highest for maximum light, lowest for longest runtime
    * Precision micro-textured reflector creates smooth, optimized beam
    * Coated tempered window resists impact, maximizes light
    * High-strength aerospace aluminum body, Mil-Spec hard-anodized for extreme durability
    * Selector ring provides no-look control of output level
    * Tailcap click switch—press for momentary-on, press further to click constant-on
    * Heavy-duty stainless steel clip provides multiple carry options
    * Weatherproof O-ring and gasket sealing
    Includes high-energy 123A batteries with 10-year shelf life

    My U2 is just like brand new, in the box. New price is $250. My GetDPI price $175 shipped in CONUS, with two brand new sets of batteries.

    I know - that sounds like an awful lot for a flashlight, but once you own a Surefire, you will never settle for less.

    That U2 would look good on my AR.

    That's the one. Need the quad rail and flip-up front BUI first... I picked the wrong hobbies from a "cheap" standpoint.
