SureFire B1R Beast Rechargeable Ultra High-Output Flashlight is improved version of the original Beast Flashlight - and it one of the best flashlights available in the world!. The stunning 2,000-lumen HID lamp is now augmented with an LED array that provides a long-runtime general-use beam, and the power-supply handle now comes in rechargeable and disposable-battery versions.
Surefire Beast Rechargeable Flashlight B1R has taken over the title of its limited-edition progenitor, SureFire B1R-BK Rechargeable Beast Light BR1-BK w/ Case, as the most powerful flashlight-type illumination tool SureFire has ever produced.
Despite its name, SureFire Beast II Spotlight is only 15.5 inches long and weighs just 4.5 pounds - quite manageable with one hand. But Surefire Beast-Light B1R can crank out a 2,000-lumen beam of tightly-focused white light, which is roughly equivalent to 130 two D-cell flashlights.
SureFire BeastLight II's extraordinary light output comes from a High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamp. This is the same type of lamp found in streetlights and stadium lights, but Surefire Beast-II Flashlight's HID fits inside a reflector less than 4 inches in diameter. HID lamps of SureFire Beast-Flashlight are both extremely bright and extremely efficient, producing almost four times the lumen output of an incandescent lamp for an equal power input.
Originally designed for applications such as border patrol, maritime interdiction, search and rescue, and other situations requiring a super-rugged portable searchlight, Sure-Fire Beast Rechargeable Flash Light II w/ Case is also uniquely suited for a number of outdoor applications, such as boat navigation, landmark identification, wildlife identification or surveying, outdoor photography, and big-room caving. The utility of the original design has been increased by incorporating an array of 12 white light-emitting diodes into the Surefire Flashlight's reflector. The combined light output of these LEDs is about the same as a two D-cell flashlight, which allows Sure Fire Spotlight Beast 2 to function as a general-use light when the full blast of the Surefire HID lamp isn't needed.
SureFire Beast II Powerful Search-Light performs under all weather conditions and is brutally tough - Sure-Fire Flashlight's built from aerospace-grade aluminum with a hard-anodized finish, and is virtually immune to failure from mechanical shock because both the LEDs and the High-Intensity Discharge HID lamp have no filament to burn out or break.
Power is supplied to the SureFire Most Powerful Flashlight Beast II by twenty 123A lithium batteries held securely inside four cylindrical chambers machined into the SureFire flashlight body or by Surefire rechargeable handle. The energy-dense lithium batteries provide a remarkable runtime of 1.5 hours for the HID lamp and 20 hours for the LED array. Surefire Rechargeable Battery Handle provides a runtime of 2 hours for the HID lamp and 32 hours for the LED array.
SureFire B1R Beast Powerful Watertight HID / LED Flashlight features a unique rotary power ring switch located just below the head. To operate Surefire HID High Intensity Discharge Lamp, rotate the ring clockwise. To operate the LEDs, rotate counterclockwise. A lock-out tailcap of the SureFire B1R-BK Beast HID Searchlight prevents accidental activation during transport or storage.
