The UNR Commander Rechargeable Variable-Output LED Flashlight from SureFire is an 1000-lumen maximum output rechargeable light designed for law enforcement, military, first responders, and others. SureFire's Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens produces a large pre-focused beam that has a tight center cone of bright light, with a dimmer ring on the periphery to help maintain situational awareness. For emergency signaling, the SOS mode will constantly cycle through the Morse code sequence. Its strobe mode is designed to disorientate and temporarily blind.
The Commander features the Max-Blast 4-function tailcap pushbutton switch and an output selector-ring forward of the handle. Rotate the selector ring to choose off, strobe, SOS or one of four beam intensity levels from 30 to 1000 lumens. The Max-Blast switch works by pressing straight down for momentary activation or pressing the button to the side for constant-on. What sets the Max-Blast apart is that no matter what output the flashlight is set to, fully pushing down or pressing to the side instantly activates the 1000-lumen output. In tactical situations, the benefit of this is obvious. The light also has two lock-out features, on the tailcap and selector-ring, to prevent accidental activation during transport or when strict light discipline must be maintained.
Designed for durability, the light features a weatherproof O-ring and gasket sealed Mil-Spec anodized aluminum body with a tempered and anti-reflection coated lens window. A battery-level indicator on the selector ring enables confident power management of the included rechargeable battery. For further versatility, the Commander is dual-cell capable. If the battery charge runs out, the light can be powered by three 123 disposable batteries. When using disposable batteries, maximum output drops approximately 30%.
