    * Made of aircraft grade aluminum

    * Batteries not included

    Price? Only $56.50. CANNOT BEAT IT!
    The light just arrived and I have some questions you can hopefully answer for me. When I press the tail cap switch the light goes on and is a steady light. If I press it again, it becomes a flashing light. Is this the way it should work? Is that what is meant by a strobe light? By the "bezel" do they mean the front part of the light that you turn completely to open to install the batteries? If I turn this should I get different levels of brightness?

    Thanks.

    Surefire E2E in the pocket.
    Surefire Z3 in the nightstand.
    Surefire Z2 in the end table.
    Surefire 9P in my truck.
    Surefire G2 in wife's car.
    Surefire 623FA on the Mossy.

    All except the G2 have the high output bulb in them.

    There are two settings for the head(bezel) of the flashlight. The first head setting is screwed down snug. With this setting you get the "turbo" and the "strobe" by pressing the tailcap. The second head setting is unscrewed maybe 1/16 of a turn. With this setting you get "low", "medium", "high", and "S.O.S.".

    I hope that makes sense. Try unscrewing the head a little while the light is on and you'll get the picture.

    It works like this,

    Head/bezel tightened down all the way.

    click on-max
    press alittle and let go-strobe
    press alittle and let go-max
    and so on.
    click off

    Head/Bezel loosened

    click on-low
    press alittle-med
    press alittle-high
    press alittle-S.O.S.
    press alittle-low (sequence above repeats itself)
    click off

    Its a great light. The user interface is simpler than I was expecting. :)

    Thanks, guys. I sat at my computor with the light, followed your instructions and there it was.
    Much appreciated. Just one more question: I assume the "strobe" is the blinking light, correct?

    With the fenix ld2, on turbo mode, the 135 lumen setting does it flash or hold a steady beam?

    Both.

    I carry a 6P most of time and have a G2 in the vehicle. I just bought a 120 lumen Cree LED assembly, for the 6P, for $12.50 and free shipping from this site. Should have it in about 4 or 5 days.

    When I carry a light it's a Surefire 6P. If I were to buy a new light it'd be one of the 6 volt LED lights from Pentagon Lights.

    Got the LED assembly yesterday and tried it out in my 6P(my carry light). Works great and is very bright and very white light. Tried it out with my G2 but doesn't fit the G2. But the G2 is my vehicle light so not a big deal, but would have been nice if it had worked. Anyways it was definitely worth the $12.50. Guess I'll have to get another 6P and another Cree LED!!!!!!
