Have had a couple surefire lights over the years, valued for their brightness and durability. 500 lumens is plenty bright for pedestrian work. Best feature is the 15 lumen 2nd setting actually. I wish the self-defense Fury model had a 15 lumen option as well. Sometimes less light is more. But for seeing something or getting someone's attention immediately, 500 lumens is pretty kick-a**.

I've been using Surefire flashlights for over six years straight now, first with the 6PLED Defender model, and I love that light, but I was instantly intrigued by the P2X Fury, with its dual output (The Defender's single output 80 lumen is a bit bright for some applications and allows only two hours tactical run time) and its incredible 500 lumen output on the high setting. I've been using my Fury for one year straight now, and I'm not disappointed in the slightest. I nearly always employ the 15 lumen setting on the job, and I'm able to get over eight hours run time (mind you that I'm using Surefire rechargeable batteries with 40%-50% of the capacity of disposable CR123A batteries) in that mode. However, when I want to REALLY turn on the power, a quick double click produces a sun-like blast of light instantly.
As if that weren't enough, I accidentally dropped my Fury last month, cracking the window over the reflector. I e-mailed Surefire, explaining clearly that it was my fault and asking for a quote for repairs. They e-mailed back, asking for me to ship the light back to them (envelope and shipping together were less than $5) to repair. I received a package from Surefire just under three weeks later, and imagine my amazement when I saw that they hadn't repaired the flashlight, but had instead shipped a brand new P2X Fury, complete with brand new set of batteries. When they say lifetime warranty, Surefire means it!
I'm a lifelong customer now, and I make sure to tell everyone I know who wants a SERIOUS flashlight to check into a Surefire. Yeah, you pay a bit more than for the average flashlight, but you know it'll work every time, and that you can stake your life on it.

I like it very much! The only issue is to save battery life, you have to twist the end to the point where if you hit the button it will not turn on. I would like to see some kind of indicator to tell me when I got to that point rather than having to guess and test it by pushing the button. I highly recommend this product.

Great bright little light...I think I have sold at least 4 of these after showing them to friends. I would recommend that you buy the case of batteries as that is the only downside.

The most powerful handheld light I've ever owned for patrol. I like the option for the high/low beams on the light. Coupled with the rechargeable batteries, its a great combination.

The flashlight is excellent the only problem i have is with the batteries that came with it. I was only able to use the flashlight at its highest power for about 15 minutes before the batteries gave out. I've been trying to find replacements(surefire batteries 12 pack) at Gander Mount. but they do not carry them unless i order them through their catalog. The other supplier in my area, according to SureFire, is Walmart, but that is not true--they do not carry SureFire batteries, so my only other option when i can get to it, is to order them from SureFire. Hopefully the next batch (when i order them) are better then the first...

We use this light all the time on the farm. It is a great light that we depend on whenever we are out working at night, looking for livestock or walking on unfamiliar ground in the dark. When we need bright light we depend on SureFire. We own three of them! Best flashlight that money can buy!

500 lumens, dual output, what's not to like? Standard Surefire reliability. Always there when needed. Fifteen lumen mode makes this a much more useful light.

I bought the very first version of this light (yes early adopters are often suckers). The light was bright and well made. I did have some reservations about the low “level” being the first to come on (you double tap for the high level). I personally prefer to have the high/brightest available first and then I can “dim” if needed, but I want to have the bright/stun effect first thing. Unfortunately, this was not how the first version of the Fury came. Months later (and while my light sat in a desk), Surefire came out with several versions (different lighting modes/levels). I attempted to contact them via email/online for weeks…I never got a response. It wasn’t until I contacted the LE POC that anyone responded. They were sympathetic to my issue, but after months (yes months) of emails in the end Surefire was unwilling to do anything (of any significance) to address my issue. They offered me a 10% off “coupon”. I recommend anyone looking at this light (or any Surfire light), look at Streamlight’s LED flashlights. They are well made, very bright and significantly cheaper than most Surefire lights…AND (most of them) use/have Streamlight’s Ten Tap Programmable option (meaning you can choose how it operates).

The P2X Fury, is the best flashlight I have owned. I use it on low power mostly but the high power really reaches out in the night for the occasional night critter visit, which has upset our dogs.

|Output / Runtime -- White Light|
|High||500||.0||lumens / 1.5 hours**|
|Low||15||.0||lumens / 46.0 hours*|
** Runtime (at highest setting for multiple-output
lights) until output drops below 50 lumens.
The P2X Fury uses a high-efficiency, virtually failure-proof LED to deliver your choice of either 15 or 500 lumens of perfectly focused light, the latter qualifying the Fury as a pocket-sized searchlight. The 15-lumen level is excellent for general work at close-to-medium distances, and also lets you greatly extend the runtime per set of batteries, a valuable option when you're miles from civilization. At either setting the high-strength polymer micro-textured reflector delivers a smooth, comparatively wide beam with a brighter central area and generous peripheral light. The Fury is activated with a click-type tailcap switch: press for momentary-on low, press further to click constant-on low; return to off and press or click on again within two seconds for high. The high-strength aerospace aluminum body is smoothly sculpted for a comfortable, secure grip and is hard anodized to military specifications for extreme resistance to scratches, abrasion, and corrosion.
