SureFire Titan-A

New SureFire Titan-A

Just a few months after debuting their largest LED flashlight, the UDR Dominator, SureFire is ready to make waves again with the introduction of their smallest, the Titan-A.  Designed as an ultra-compact keychain light, the upcoming Titan-A is the first SureFire flashlight powered by an included rechargeable AAA Eneloop NiMH battery or AAA alkaline (not included).

Simple counterclockwise twists of the head allow the user to activate the Titan-A and select one of its two operating modes – a maximum of 125 lumens (for 30 minutes) and a longer running 15 lumen level (2 hours).  A proprietary faceted reflector is used to create a wide and evenly dispersed beam suited for close-range use.

Elzetta on Amazon

Elzetta Sale on Amazon

Several months ago Amazon began carrying almost the entire line-up of Elzetta flashlights and accessories.  Up until that point Elzetta lights were only available from third party sellers on the Amazon site.  Recently they drastically lowered their prices on the original 235-lumen versions providing an excellent opportunity to pick up a high quality American made flashlight at a very affordable price.  The higher-output versions (see their review) are currently still at their regular prices.Continue reading

SureFire – Behind the Scenes

As I was preparing for an upcoming trip to San Diego, California I couldn’t help but notice that I would be a mere two hour drive from Fountain Valley, the birthplace of the many SureFire flashlights in my collection.  As a certifiable flashlight nut (flashaholic) I just couldn’t pass up this opportunity without attempting to visit their facilities while on the West Coast.  Hopefully I could learn more about the company, people, and processes that create such great products.Continue reading

SureFire M300B and M600U – New Options and Price

SureFire has released two new variations of their popular M300B and M600U Scout Lights which are available without the usual remote tape switch.  Equipped only with the Z68 click-type switch and designated as the M300B-Z68 and M600U-Z68, these new versions provide a sub-$300 alternative for those who prefer not to use a tape switch or who are looking to upgrade from a previous Scout Light and already have a compatible tape switch.

In addition, SureFire has dropped the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the M600 Ultra Scout Light to $369, which is the same as the M300B.  (Photos courtesy of SureFire, LLC)Continue reading

New SureFire Y300 Ultra

MDA Lockup Gene Malkoff

Help get Gene out of Jail and support MDA

If you’re familiar with the Muscular Dystrophy Association then you already know of their dedication to saving and improving lives of people fighting muscle disease.  Perhaps you also know how they provide health care, advocacy and education for those who are in need.  These good deeds require money and MDA relies heavily on donations from those who are able to help those that can’t.

As part of the fund raising activities each year numerous people volunteer to go to “jail” in support of this great cause in the hopes that their friends, co-workers, business associates and customers will raise enough bail money to set them free.  Of course they won’t really stay in jail if the money isn’t raised but they often make up the difference out of their own pockets.
