This light is pricey but I wanted a quality light I could depend on.
Talk about amazing, this small light is brighter than a huge search
light. It lights up the entire back yard on the highest setting.
It works as a normal flashlight on low setting. Great for mounting on my weapon.

Received my new E2D and it is a simple but powerful instrument that fits my needs very well. Got the V-91 holster for it and wish there was a better option but will make work best I can. The clip catches when taking the flashlight out of the holster and could be tricky in the heat of a moment. Love the light.

Awesome light. Bought the second one to give to a friend who just completed rookie police training. He will have the best tool to light he way and defend himself as needed

Say hello to my little friend
This is my second E2D. I run 5-10 miles per day in the dark to warm up before my morning workout and always take it with me. It works reliably and after years, am still astonished with its power. It stops traffic, dogs, and the occasional stranger when I have to. I'd like to say it saved my life, but no...it reality, it has helped me help many others. Will take it to my grave....with plenty of spare batts of course.

Extremely well-built! 500 lumens will fill a small room with enough light that you could read a book (point at the ceiling) - it's great it can be placed on a surface and be used as a lantern. My only issue is that once the batteries lose power (I guess after 2.25 hours), there is no dual output. It remains at single output of 50 lumens and below until the batteries die (the real tactical use is lost...). Anyway, it's a great product if you've got fresh batteries. I wish the dual output worked until the batteries drained 100%.

The E2D LED Defender® Ultra is a compact 500-lumen flashlight featuring dual-output capability and self-defense enhancements. Utilizing a virtually indestructible high-performance LED and a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens, the E2DL Ultra is activated with a pushbutton tailcap click switch that also selects output levels: press or click once for a high-intensity 500-lumen white-light beam—ten times the light needed to overwhelm the night-adapted vision of an aggressor. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds for a 5-lumen ultra-long runtime low beam that's suitable for navigating at night or performing close-up tasks for hours. The Defender's crenellated Strike Bezel® provides further defensive options should the need arise. Slender and powerful, the E2DL Ultra is an ideal everyday-carry light.
