The Maximus Rechargeable Variable-Output LED Headlamp from Surefire is a rechargeable variable-output LED headlamp with enough power to illuminate your entire campsite. Yet, if that's too much, you can dial it down for closer work to 1 lumen, or any level in between. This preserves your vision in the dark, and extends the battery's runtime.

Delivering an amazing 500 total lumens of light, the large knurled dial permits output control with one hand--even if it's gloved or numb from the cold. One hand can also aim the light right where you want it since the light assembly rotates up and down 90 degrees.

The SureFire Maximus utilizes a high-performance LED and a custom reflector to produce a wide and diffused beam, optimized for your natural field of vision, but which also provides impressive reach at its max 500 lumen setting. It is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can provide years of use, and chargers for both wall-type AC outlets and 12V DC vehicle accessory outlets are included. A fuel gauge on the headlamp gives battery charge status, and a long-running SOS beacon provides an extra margin of safety when needed.

Built from tough, lightweight magnesium, the SureFire Maximus thrives in harsh conditions. It's also comfortable to wear, thanks to its no-chafe fine-weave headband and moisture-wicking Breathe-O-Prene forehead pad. Maximus Rechargeable Headlamp, even during long stretches of continuous use, will not get worn out-nor wear you out.

      I like to hunt, camp and walk from my house to my barn as well as read a book in the dark while camping. This headlamp offers all that. The adjustable light dials in just what you need. The only con I have is that you can not replace the batteries. I have it a 5 star because after talking with sure fire they assured me that the batteries where lifetime warranty and that they would replace to original owner free of charge if they ever stopped taking a charge. Way to go sure fire! Thank you

          Comments about SureFire Maximus Rechargeable Variable-Output LED Headlamp:

          It is a nice headlight but it is too heavy for me.
          I use one for home security installation and the one I use is another brand and it is light weigh so when I got this one and Tried it, I didn't like it because of the weigh so I returned it and I'm geting the
          Surefire minimus instead.
          I don't want to walk around with marks on my forehead.
          I do not wear a helmet.

            Comments about SureFire Maximus Rechargeable Variable-Output LED Headlamp:

            I use the Maximus during nightly walks with hiking poles around areas of the neighborhood with no street lamps; to inspect house renovation progress; in other dimly lit areas around the house. I appreciate the ability to adjust the brightness quickly with one hand turning a knob. The charge seems to be lasting a long time as well. I wear a hat with a short brim because the Maximus is heavy and would otherwise slip down over my eyes. I called Surefire Customer Service, but they have no top strap available although the forehead piece can accommodate a top strap. There may be aftermarket or DIY options for the top strap.

            I would still buy the Maximus again for my application. The light quality and ease of use is fantastic, and Surefire produces and stands behind their quality light tools.

              This headlamp is perfect for what my needs are which are walking to and from my deer stand and around the house use. The light has a great flood to it and really lights up the path in front of you. One hand operation is a must for me and this light can do it. I highly recommend it.

              This light is just AWESOME. I love the ability this light gives me of turning night into day. It is so convenient to have a great flood of bright light everywhere I look, or anything in between. It is also very comfortable when worn however it does get hot if run at full power after a while. (nothing too bad) This is a very well built light, feels solid and comes with a nice carrying bag. I can't say enough about it!

                  Note the Maximus comes with a fitting for a top band that works perfect with one inch nylon.

                    I freakin love this light, and I'm ordering a second one when B and H opens up. My local army navy store had some non-stretch nylon (which I would recommend as the top band does not want to give).

                    In my pictures you will see how my local shoe store sewed an X-box to the flexy band.

                    This 500 lumen thing is really comfortable now. Now all the raccoons will run from me on my nightly walks with my blind Jack Russell.

                    Notice the picture taken with a 5D mk3 and 14mm lens also ordered from B and H. Yes I am addicted to B and H, they've mesmerized me with their easy listening music when I'm on hold.

                    Surefire: would buy it all DAY LONG!

                        I bought this headlamp to use for work as a home/building inspector. I use it primarily in attics and crawlspaces, and it really is amazily bright. The light ouput is pure white, and can be throttled up or down as necessary.

                        So far, so good. Seems to hold a charge well, powerful light.

                          Took this hiking up Stairway to Heaven in Honolulu. This is the perfect headlamp with the adjstable light output. Lit up the trail perfectly and was easily the brigest light on that trail.

                          My only complaint is that there isn't a option to swap in disposable batteries....treking in the woods, there aren't many places to recharge your headlamp.

                            Amazing, the best ACCESSORY for wedding photography and photography in critical light conditions.

                            I use one day with the head support is not very practical, apart from looking like a Martian the camera makes shadow.

                            Mounted on a belt (black rapid) is perhaps the best help for video and autofocus in low light conditions.

                            It's awesome, is a portable reflector.

                              Good light output and battery run time. Unit is a little too heavy. I'm using this on a construction hard hat and the added weight is giving me neck aches.

                              Good light for short term use
