Legacy Reviewer's Review of SureFire EB1 Backup Dual-Output LED Tactical Flashlight w/ Tactical Switch - 200 Lumens

This is great kit. I upgraded to this from the Streamlight ProTac 2L. The Streamlight is not even in the same class. The ProTac 2L has a tail switch problem that they will fix, but how many times will you do that until you realize you can't trust that it will work when you need it? I have full confidence in the EB1, it just feels like its better built. One more point, the EB1 has a great way of using its limited battery power; the light stays at near full brightness until the battery is too low and will simply just allow 5 lumens (the low setting). This is better than the Streamlight where it starts losing brightness after each minute it's used. I have a Surefire x-300 ultra as well, where I upgraded from a Streamlight TLR-1S; I have the exact same feeling from making the switch there as well. Surefire products are costly, but I believe they're worth it. Tip: keep an extra battery with you since you won't know when the battery is too low until it's too late.
Pros: EDC, Light, Small, Deep Carry Clip, Tactical Switch, low/high setting
Cons: Single battery design lasts 2 weeks under semi-heavy use, Surefire pricing, no strobe option.
