  • adequate and cheaper LED upgrade forSurefire G2

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Priced at $10 dollars compared to the $50 dollar Surefire brand. Seams to provide a little more light than the original 80 lumen incandescent bulb. Should save me in battery costs.

    Cons:

    unit is a little larger and will not be a direct replacement. The larger spring needed to be removed to work. As stated before, the light is a little too blue. Gets warm very fast for an LED. Cheap looking quality

    OtherThoughts:

    The unit puts out two distinct areas of light. The first is a nice tight bring beam in the center, the second is a really big halo around it. Higher quality LED Surefires have no outer halo.

    Bottomline:

    If it can save me battery life then it's work the cash. I would have to see the $50 Surefire version before I can be too critical.
    This could be a good upgrade on a G2 if you ever burn out your original bulb.
