Whether you prefer the versatility of the E2D Defender® Ultra or the straightforward simplicity of the E2D Defender® Tactical, SureFire has developed the superlative everyday-carry tactical light. The Defender lives up to its name in more ways than one. Machined from aerospace aluminum, its crenellated Strike Bezel®and scalloped tail cap turn this robust illumination tool into a potential impact weapon, so it can take a beating or give one if necessary. The Defender body also features a Type III Mil-Spec hard-anodized coating for abrasion and corrosion resistance in foul weather or other adverse environments. A bolstered dual-function pocket clip makes bezel-up or bezel-down pocket storage easy too.
The dual-output E2D Defender Ultra (E2DLU-A) utilizes SureFires virtually indestructible high-performance LED. The very heart of these slender and powerful lights, it pumps out an intense, 1,000-lumen beam, precisely focused through our optimized Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens. Thats plenty of output to momentarily disorient virtually any adversary and gain a crucial tactical advantage.
With a simple click of the push-button tail cap, both Defender models deliver a continuous high-output beam for a minimum of 1.5 hours. The Ultra adds the extra value of dual-output capability. Clicking its tail cap twice yields a battery-saving 5 lumens, ideal for the most basic low-light tasks such as map reading and other close-range applications. And with a continuous low-output run time of 36 hours, you can trust the Ultra to keep you company from sunset to sunrise.

Wider spread and more 'spill' than my E2D Defender 500/5 lumen light BUT center spot is NOT AS BRIGHT. This facilitates my being able to light up my front sight with the spill more easily without misdirecting the beam too far left of my target. Light is NOT as white as my E2D and other Surefire lights. Renders better color while still maintaining fairly good detail resolution.
Tailcap is crenelated and protected against accidental actuation when stored. I like the momentary and click on in both modes.
:Surefire lights are the BEST in the business. Light is big and tough enough to use as a kubaton in fighting situations. WISH SUREFIRE LIGHTS STILL CAME WITH A Z50 LANYARD. Tactical lights are only about 50% effective without a retention device.
