I couldn't be happier with Surefire finally getting into the 18650 rechargeable game. I haven't bought many Surefire products for a few years because of only being able to use 3v primary batteries or the low capacity LiFe cells.

Yup, another quality light from Surefire. Dual intensity, INTENSITY, light. Momentary and always on capability. Waiting to see on battery life. Rechargeable a spare when they come available would be nice. I also love the way they stand behind their products. Here's a no hesitation thumbs up.

Took me a couple of uses to get the pressure switch down between the two illumination settings, but once I did wow. I wouldn't want to have this light aimed at me without a welding shield on. And heaven forbid you need to use it at close-quarter because you could do some serious damage with the heavy bezel. Great product; highly recommend if you're looking for a dual-purpose light.

Perfect name for this light, as it should be recommended for duty for many. Surefire you have spent time developing this 18650 light and it shows!!. This is the first 18650 light that actually feels like it was built for combat on the streets or battlefield. This light and a E1D make a great combo. This light is great for search and rescue or security. It's beam reaches 3-4+ floors easily and can light a large area inside a building. The Peacekeeper does something a lot of lights can't do, it can do more than one job and do it well. Well suited for larger hands, It fits mine well with the Centurian series style 4 sided rounded flats and knurling. When Surefire posts the 18650 batteries is comes with for sale, I will be adding 2-3 to the order as my Peacekeeper will need backup. Those who are looking for a new light should be looking no further then the Peacekeeper to back you up

I have to say, I love my P2X Fury, but it was always lacking in one thing which is the 18650 battery option. Not anymore. I don't mean to say that this is just a Fury with an 18650 option because even though it's similar there are differences. At the same time, if you like the Fury models, you're going to want this one. The beam is similar and quality you expect from surefire. The body is much more grippy than the P2X which is very nice. The crenelated bezel isn't crazy aggressive, and is a nice addition. All in all, I'm very happy with the light. My only complaint is that while yes, they supply you with one 18650, the charging dock and two separate cords for the wall or the car, I really think they should have included an additional 18650 so one would always be ready. Yes, I know, you can use the cr123 batteries, but I specifically bought it for the recharging aspect. I'd be happy to buy an additional 18650 from Surefire, but when I asked customer service, they said they didn't have any, but would have them for sale soon. I don't know, seems like a small oversight, but it doesn't affect my opinion of this amazing light. Get one!

The P1R Peacekeeper is a powerful, dual-output LED flashlight developed for those who patrol our streets. This game-changing rechargeable boasts a virtually indestructible high-performance LED that’s focused by a precision reflector to produce a brilliant 600-lumen beam on high with significant reach and substantial peripheral illumination for situational awareness. And its compact, knurled body make the P1R ideal for use with a handgun. It also features a useful 15-lumen low-output setting that provides extended runtime for close-up tasks.
The first press or click of its click-type tailcap switch unleashes a stunning 600-lumen beam, which is perfect for threat identification and overwhelming the dark-adapted vision of an aggressor. Press or click a second time, within two seconds, to produce a 15-lumen low-output beam ideal for close- to medium-range tasks and greatly extended runtime. On either setting, the tailcap switch allows selection of momentary-on activation when pressed, or constant-on activation when clicked.
The Peacekeeper is powered by a readily available 18650 lithium-ion battery that’s easily recharged using either an AC wall charger or a DC vehicle charger, both included. It can also be powered by two disposable 123A lithium batteries, if necessary.
Constructed of aerospace aluminum with knurling for a secure grip, the body is Mil-Spec hard anodized for maximum durability. The body is also O-ring and gasket sealed for dirt and water resistance. Built for law enforcement, the rugged dual-output Peacekeeper delivers exceptional performance for both tactical and non-tactical applications.
NOTE: The P1R Peacekeeper Tactical, a single-output version, provides 600 max lumens of output every time the tactical tailcap switch is pressed.
