That’s pretty cool, and good to know!
The only thing I’d be wary of is the heat IF used on high for any length of time.
I’ve got a couple of the SureFire lens covers for my Lumamax LX2 and the lens cover I use about 90% of the time is the diffusor to “soften” and broaden the beam.

You'll really appreciate being able to add a filter to your bright while light if you ever do not want to destroy your night vision.
Once the human eye has acclimated to darkness you need very little light to easily perform tasks in the dark.
And...intense white light is a night vision destroyer!

Sure is, this is a big reason any time you get pulled over or talked to by an officer they make sure they shine their light in your eyes for a second.

That's true about the heat concern, but I don't think a lot of heat dissipates through the lens. I'm pretty sure Surefire has lens to go over some of their lights.

However, what I thought the filter would be good for is the low beam, 15 lumen for walking etc. This gets back to what QKShooter was talking about, you really don't need and you don't want much light for walking. When your eyes open up it just doesn't take much.
The filter cuts down on the intensity a good bit, and the red limits the bandwidth, both of which are good for maintaining night vision.
I find it quite interesting that the Maglite lens holder perfectly fits the Surefire. Outside of deliberately designing the LX2 that way, I wonder what the odds are that they just happened to get it just right?

NEVER point a gun at something you are not prepared to destroy!
AND for GODS sake, get your finger off the trigger until you are ready to squeeze the trigger!
