    The 500 lumen mode is nice but it's a juice hog.

    Would a regular 6P cell extender fit this light? My friend wants to ad some length to the light by adding a one cell extender with a dummy cell. Would this work??
    If a standard 6P tailcap would fit the light, the extender would fit to?

    Thanks!

    No need for a dummy cell, 2x17500 (max 8.4V) and probably 3xCR123 (~9V) should work just fine based on the positive reports of using 2x16340 (max 8.4V).

    And I think I remember a tailcap lego pic so as you say if tailcaps fit an extender should fit, too.

    The reason he wants to ad an extender is because he wants "more" flashlight to hold on to. He don´t like two cells lights...He will be carrying the light at work, he are currently using the M3 which he thinks are a good length... But wants a little more output and a low and a high. My thought would be that a Fury would fit the bill perfectly if he could ad an extender to get some more length to it...

    Customer service is not always the most informed, so I would take that with a grain of salt. Since you also seem to take my word with a grain of salt, we can just wait a couple weeks and see what pops up on SureFire's website.

    We've sure been down this road a few times before. A lot of us are hoping the recent changes to pricing, suddenly introduced new models like the Fury and other signs of change mean that SF is not up to its old tricks of dangling tantalizing vaporware in front of the unwashed masses.

    All of the traditional excuses about how PK is a genius - he can't be rushed, we're not the target market, SF has bigger fish to fry, just because it's in the catalog doesn't mean they'll actually ship it etc., wear thin after a while. Can you imagine if Apple announced several new products these days and then failed to produce them? I realize SF is not Apple but if they are sincere about going after the consumer market, they need to be more responsible about what they advertise to the customer in my opinion.

    Like a lot of other folks here, I'll certainly continue to buy many of the new SF models when they come out. If they come out.

    OK Robin, hope you are right and SF delivers whether or not they put them on the website!

    I didn't take your word "with a grain of salt"; I just spoke to SureFire before you replied to my post.

    I don't have a Fury but I just tried it with my G2X. A cell extender fits and the tailcap works properly. The current draw on high with 9v. is a couple hundred mA less that it is with 6v., indicating that the light is OK for use with 9v.

    SF has had my Fury for a week now for repair/replacement...
    They're only 30mi away from me. I feel like going there and asking what's taking them so long.

    And yes an extender does fit. The tailcaps on the Fury and G2X are interchangeable with Z41 tailcaps.

    Your looking at about three weeks to a month. Or you may get yours quicker. That's how long mine took to get back to me, but it was worth the wait.

    Head-on collision with lens, SureFire becomes Surely-dead Fire, like all glassware.

    I just got my Fury thru Brightguy. Low price and rapid delivery.

    I also have an E1b Backup. I prefer the higher power coming on first. The on/off button on the Fury has a longer throw and more resistance that the Backup, making it less convenient to use.

    Powerful little devil, though.

    Hey FlashSpyJ, look at post #677, another confirmation that it will fit.

    If you're not confident get a solarforce extender, they are like 5 bucks, look cheap, work ok, not much lost if it wouldn't fit.

    Malkoff now offers stainless steel pocket clips that can fit Fury, among swarms of other P/C/M/D/MD/etc series...

    Surefire has factory lanyard for P-tailcapped light
    For the clip, you must seek a 3rd party manufacturer

    The Dark Sucks pocket clip works perfect on the Fury. I have one and you can also use a lanyard if you want to. I believe its what your looking for. PM sent.

I should have mine tomorrow and then I can post my thoughts on the light after I play with it.
    Anyone know if this light is available in Canada, or a seller who can ship it here at a reasonable cost?
