SureFire E1B Backup LED Dual Output Flashlight
SKU #: SF-E1B
Made for cops... by cops...
Law enforcement called for backup, and SureFire answered the call—with sirens blazing. The new E1B Backup, designed as an everyday-carry light for undercover police officers, or as a secondary light for uniformed officers, is a powerful, pocket-sized flashlight that’s always at the ready.
The Backup features a two-stage, virtually indestructible LED. On high, it generates a tightly focused, tactical-level 110-lumen beam that’s perfect for searching or overwhelming a bad guy’s night-adapted vision. On low, its five lumens are just the right amount of light for close-quarter work like checking IDs or writing citations. And because in high-stress situations, where seconds count, you don’t have time to fumble with a switch to get maximum power, the Backup’s twostage, click-on/off tailcap is programmed to deliver all 100 of its lumens when you fully depress it.
The tough but tiny Backup runs for 37 hours on a single lithium 123A battery; is built from aerospace-grade aluminum that’s hard anodized with a Mil-Spec Type III black finish; and is O-ring sealed to keep dust, dirt, and moisture out. And to make the Backup a near-perfect undercover flashlight, its sleek, “melted” body has no knurling or sharp edges to catch on or destroy clothing, and a sturdy, two-way pocket clip lets you carry the flashlight bezel up or bezel down, whichever you prefer.
Count on the E1B Backup to have your back no matter what the call—be it a crime scene, undercover work, or one last walk for your pooch before bedtime.
Surefire True Stories - Backup Foils Carjacking
I worked late one evening and was car-jacked in the parking lot. He forced me into the trunk of my car. I was scared and on the verge of panic. Luckily, my Surefire E1B Backup® was in my purse. I turned my flashlight on with no plan other than to not be in the dark in the trunk of a moving car anymore.
With the light of my Backup, I noticed that the taillights could be removed. I couldn't pull the taillight through, so I bashed a hole through the assembly, using the bezel of my E1B. Then I shined my light's tight beam through the hole and at the windshields of any cars driving behind us. Several drivers noticed the light and dialed 911.
Moments later, the police boxed the car in at a traffic light, while I screamed from inside of the trunk. The police took the carjacker into custody. I was very grateful to them and just as grateful that I'd had my SureFire flashlight with me that night.
