    How did that happen?

    I just posed a reply and it made it post number ONE of this thread?

    Default SureFire E-Series Addicts Unite!

    KDOG3 started a very nice Surefire C2-HA thread, and I thought I'd follow up with an E* thread.

    I bought an E1E HA Olive and even with the standard incan MN01 lamp, I love the thing. The other day, I just bought an E1E HA BK, and an E2E in Satin Gray, and I'm ordering some Lumens Factory HO lamps. Then it'll be on to some rechargeable cells, and the E0 series lamps.

    I believe I am an E-series addict, and I'm just getting started.

    So for all you lovers of the E-series lights, let's see what you've got!

    Hey, cool thread. Count me in as an E series fan!

    Here's a picture I recently took and posted over on the "Post Your Surefire Collection" thread. I called it my "One's and Two's" collection. The majority of my Surefire collection is of the E series size.

    | L1 | E2L | E1B Z68 | E2DL | E2E-BK KX2C Z68 | L4 | A2 flats | E2E | E1E-BK KL1 Z68 | E1L |
    | Winelights E1W & E2W | Hurricane Light | 6PDL Z49 | K2 | U2 | 6PX-B-FRD |

    Really like that E1E Winelight and that tricked-out E1E HA Bk w/the KL1 head: the E1E goes "tacticool."

    Good luck, that thread is one of the best SF threads ever, with 360 posts and ~17500 views.

    Why not? It uses the same threads as the E-series.

    I've no idea. I just tell Scott what I need the light for, and he builds it. The beam is incredible. No hotspot, but what would be considered a "tight flood".

    Edit: Found it! It's a Ledil Boom-SS reflector.

    I have a E1e, clipless E1 w/Aussie Minitower, E2d, E2O, E2e, L4 I bought from Quickbeam and upgraded with a KX2C and E1B tailcap, and a KX2 (cat urine green single stage) + E2 tube + McClicky.

    My favorite is the E2O hands down.

    I had some...but gave them away as gifts
    a Black body to Sigman and an unopened E1e-HA to Carrot
    Other than maybe TW4 I'm somewhat underwhelmed about the E1 form factor.

    I prefer the E2e
    this was back in 2008


    now theres
    1 TW4 [E1e-KL4]
    1x E2e-BK waiting to be sold
    2x E2Ls
    1x E2D+[KL4-BK with MC-E]

    The evolution of my EDC E2e...


    E2e bought new (along with an E1e for my wife) in 2002.


    A KL1 head replaced the stock incan bezel and lamp immediately. I carried it this way for a year or so.


    A KL4 head replaced the KL1 and a Z57 clicky tailcap replaced the stock Z52 twisty. (Yeah, should have just got an L4 from the get-go.) I carried it this way for a couple years.


    A McTC/McClicky combo replaced the Z57. I've tried many other tailcaps on the E2e over the years, but nothing feels more comfortable to me than the McTC. The McClicky didn't last too long...


    A 22ohm McE2S switch replaced the McClicky and a long clip from an E2o replaced the stock short clip. I love the feel and functionality of the McClicky, but the 2-stage switch is ultimately more beneficial to me. I carried it this way for another couple years.


    An ARC mania-modded KL4 head (U-bin SSC P4, stock reflector, SDC1000) replaced the previous KL4 - the beam of which had turned into a funky mash of white, purple and yellow (Go Vikes!) - and a 60ohm McE2S switch replaced the previous 22ohm McE2S. I've been carrying it this way for the last two years.

    The E2e's taken a lot more abuse than the pics show, but it's also been remarkably durable. Up until about a year ago, it was carried in a large pocket of my gym bag and bounced around with lots of other stuff (keys, knife, change, etc), but it's somehow almost unscathed.

    I haven't gotten the itch to upgrade the head again. For my EDC needs, this current set-up is almost perfect.

    7/2/09 Update (well, that didn't last long):
    A darkzero-modded KL4 head (MC-E M-bin, stock driver, extra stippled reflector) replaced the ARC mania-modded KL4. I love the old head, but I got a good deal on the new one, and I prefer the extra flood of the MC-E to the extra throw (relatively) of the SSC P4.

    Most of my modest collection (by CPF standards) of Surefire lights are E-series.

    E2D, E1E put together from spare parts, and a handful of E2Es (both modded and stock).

    What I don't have is a digital camera, or even a camera phone.

    My only E series SF light is an E2D. It still needs to be modded to improve output (too much ambient light where I live). I'd also like to replace the E2D bezel with an E2E bezel (or cut the scallops down on the E2D bezel).

    One idea is to get two AW IMR16340 rechargeable cells, and a Lumens factory IMR-E2 lamp.

    Runtime is only 15 minutes, but you get Surefire M3 output in a much more compact package.

    Both the cells and lamp are available at Lighthound.com

    These are all my E-series compatable lights.
    Most are Surefires, but there are a few Alephs, and customs. Not shown are the E-C adaptors and E-KT1/2 adaptor.

    I also just realized there are about 10 more E-series lights in my modding box waiting for mods..

    lol, things are getting out of hand here. I just had to mention I carry a E1e every day in my front pocket lens up next to my wallet. Never even know it's there. no pic required, it's stock. I am sure there is a pic of a stock one somewhere here...

    But will the stock E-series clicky tailcap handle the current, or do you need a different switch?
