Surefire P2x Fury

I saw this nice review of the above light:

http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?414959-Review-Surefir...

What struck me was the atrocious runtime on high, about 30 minutes regulated at ~600 lumens and then a steep drop. An Olight S30 will spank that, and a Manker U11 will do even better than the Olight. Those who push Surefire always point to the superior build, reliability and efficiency. So how come this one has such a poor runtime?

Seems typical Surefire to me overpriced and underwhelming. Should sell well! :bigsmile:

Quote from the CPF link

Quote:
The Surefire Intellibeam uses a feedback control system to adjust the output. Though I describe it as a feedback system this is not strictly true as with the Intellibeam, as well as its own output being monitored, other sources of light that fall onto the sensor, ambient or directed, also affect the Intellibeam output.

Does this mean that if you want to look into a dark area while the flashlight is in daylight it will sense the light and only use low ???

I think the atrocious run-time would be down to the Intellibeam using power plus steel springs, with the driver spring attached with a metal screw, high resistance anyone Smile

Cheers David

Nothing to see here folks, move along...

If I want low, I select low. I don’t want any light to choose for me.

182$ what? A standard Convoy M2 destroys this.
