    Thumbs up Cree upgrade for Surefire 6P

    Just got a Cree upgrade for my 6P today, so glad I shipped it to my work address!

    The new assembly dropped right in after removing the old standard one, screwed the bezel back on and it was ready to go. From what I could tell from the site I bought it at and others, it's quite a bit more powerful than the usual krypton bulbs and will allow the slightly expensive lithium batteries to last three times as long.

    From using it for the last few minutes, it's atleast as bright as the factory bulb and there's no fade on and off, snaps right on bright as can be. Only $36 with shipping from Lighthound.com.

    Has anyone else used these upgrades and can give me a long term review of it?

    Thanks!

    I've got one in my Surefire, but I've only had it for a month so I can't really give a "long term" review of it. It's worked great for me so far, and performed quite well at our recent night shoot. There I had a chance to compare it to some of the other folks' standard Surefires. It's definitely a bit brighter than the standard 65 lumen bulb (the P60), but it's not as bright as the Surefire 120 lumen replacement bulb (the P61). I'm quite happy with it.

    Here's a place to get them cheaper and it looks to be the same unit.

    A 45 may not expand but it will never be smaller than .45!!!

    I just bought this one. Very nice output. Brighter than the standard p60 bulb.
