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

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.

I am really liking this product. It works well at work.

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%.

This is the 5th Surefire light I've owned...starting with the 9P. Every one has been better than the last & the new Defender Ultra is no exception. Highly recommend any surefire light (& even give them away to employees for Safety Recognition at my jobsites...always makes a good impression).

I admit it. I'm a Surefire flashlight nut. I've had the 9N, 6P, G2 Nitrolon, M4 Devastator, E2 Executive, Executive E2e, L4 Lumamax, E1B Backup, 6PX Pro LED, P2X Fury Defender LED, X300 Ultra, DSF 590a1 shotgun forend, and now the E2D LED Defender Ultra, which now goes with me everywhere, along with one or two others.
Still have and use all but the old 9N, which I gave away as a present. Looking forward to more innovation and Surefirepower from the company.

I've owned several Surefire pocket lights in my life. The Defender Ultra is the best. It's light weight, easy to grip and use and the high beam is very bright with a impressive cone of light emitted. Incidentally the less intense light is excellent also. Glad I made the purchase.

I have purchased 2 of the defenders and 2 of the Furys by surefire. The reason for buying two of each? My first set of flashlights are so popular and of the highest quality, I have passed them on to children who desire their consistency. Leaving me in need of solid dependable tactical lights. I have owned other brands but none have the build and finish of Surefire.

I purchased this light to use as my EDC, and it works great. The light is very bright, and the flashlight body is very durable.
The clip did break on mine, but Surefire sent me a replacement clip within a week for free. They really do stand behind the quality of their products, and are willing to fix things when they break.

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.
