RISKS  IN  USING  COUNTERFEIT  ILLUMINATION  TOOLS
SureFire illumination tool counterfeits replicate SureFire products on the outside, which may include SureFire branding and registered trademarks. However —

• Counterfeit illumination tools DO NOT offer any dependable, reliable or advantageous performance for any military, law enforcement or
   competitive applications
• Counterfeit illumination tools MAY NOT withstand firearm recoil or shock when used as weapon-mounted lights, nor maintain zero (X400
   laser)
• Counterfeit illumination tools used as weapon-mounted lights MAY CAUSE unintentional light activation during firearm discharge
• Counterfeit illumination tools ARE NOT covered by the SureFire No-Hassle Promise.


RISKS  IN  USING  COUNTERFEIT  BATTERIES
SureFire-brand batteries, and those rechargeable batteries sold directly by SureFire, are manufactured to strict quality standards specifically for use in high-performance, high-drain devices. SureFire battery counterfeits replicate SureFire products on the outside, including SureFire branding and registered trademark. However —

    • Counterfeit batteries MAY develop internal shorts, leading to fires and/or explosions, resulting in damage to illumination tool, property, or
       persons
    • Counterfeit batteries DO NOT offer any dependable, reliable or advantageous performance for any military, law enforcement or competitive
      applications
    • Counterfeit batteries MAY NOT have built-in fault and heat protection and may constitute a safety hazard
    • Counterfeit batteries MAY NOT withstand firearm recoil or shock when used in weapon-mounted lights
    • Counterfeit batteries MAY CAUSE unintentional light activation during firearm discharge when used in weapon-mounted lights
    • Counterfeit batteries ARE NOT covered by the SureFire No-Hassle Promise.


ACCEPTABLE  NON-SUREFIRE  BATTERY  BRANDS
You may also use batteries from well-known manufacturers such as Panasonic®, Energizer®, or Duracell® to ensure safe performance. These brands are registered trademarks of their respective companies.

There have been reported incidents of counterfeit and/or inferior-quality lithium batteries developing internal shorts that have led to fires and/or explosions. This has resulted in damage to the illumination tool and, in some rare cases, property damage and/or personal injury.

Customers are specifically WARNED against purchasing batteries from online-auction and other websites not authorized by SureFire, as these are known sources of counterfeit and/or inferior-quality batteries.

The use of counterfeit and/or inferior-quality batteries could greatly reduce runtime and output performance, damage your SureFire illumination tool, constitute a safety hazard, and may void SureFire’s No-Hassle Promise.

SureFire-brand batteries, and those rechargeable batteries sold directly by SureFire, are manufactured to strict quality standards specifically for use in high-performance, high-drain devices. All SureFire-brand batteries contain built-in fault and heat protection for added safety.

For these reasons, SureFire specifies that you purchase competitively priced replacement batteries from SureFire or an authorized SureFire dealer. Locate your nearest SureFire dealer here. That way, quality and safety are guaranteed while prices are kept low—typically far lower than the retail price of comparable or questionable-quality batteries—to accommodate the needs and safety of our valued customers.

SureFire performance claims are based on the use of SureFire batteries that initially ship with SureFire illumination tools.

You may also use batteries from well-known manufacturers such as Panasonic®, Energizer®, or Duracell® to ensure safe performance. These brands are registered trademarks of their respective companies.
