    I think I am just going to order one to play with. It would be nice of it worked with the Thyrm Switchback. I also wonder if it will work with the K2 LiFPo batteries that SF sells.

    A close friend & recognized SME on the use of force known as DB (confidante of Ken Goode also), mentored me long ago & thus for years I've carried in my non-shooting hand an EAG (RIP Pat) 1000 lmm. Fury or an R1 Lawman EVERY time I'm out in low/no light situations. My 3 cell Fury or R1 can always double as an impact weapon first if things go south, seems I may need to pass the R1 onto my son & replace it w/ an EDCL-2T, time will tell.
    Craig has been very good to me over the years and extremely generous with his time, as was Pat. I wish Pat could see the new scoutlight. 😕

    That's good to hear! I really like the direction Surefire is moving, keep up the good work.

    1200 lumens from 2xCR123 is WAY too power hungry. If it manages any sort of regulation the runtime will be 10 minutes. Chances are it will drop immediately to 600 something ish after 30 seconds. The whole thing seems silly.


    I do like the TIR lens though, wonder what the Lux at 1 meter is.

    I agree with that. Finally we also need an E1L-AA. The E2L-AA is such a great light. I was always hoping SF makes a 1xAA light...
    Still looking for Surefire G2 in Orange.
    If you have one you don't like please PM me.

    Can you spec an Aviator Classic? Head-twist to select low/floody, (Nichia 3mm?) or high/throwy, (the "big gun") and two-stage tailcap for two-stage brightness control? The thing that made the original Aviator __great__ was the fact that both modes illuminated the same breadth, at two different ranges. I'd also dearly love the return of the Surefire az2-s, which was a great concept, but laughable at 120 lumens - I couldn't even justify the price on clearance, when I had a 1000 lumen triple-Nichia 283 light. But with two modes - bright and dim; controlled by head tension - and the two-stage tailcap, I'd drop $250 on it with Ö okay, I'd have to do a little saving, but if you could do 1000-1500 lumens at full blastÖ

    I'm imagining 5/60 and 60/1200 modes for "camping" and "fighting", with the smaller being the diffuse low-power beam provided by the flood LEDs.

    Edit: I just looked up the E2T-MV, and I think I'll be buying three lights from you this season. My hypothetical "super AZ2-S" seems to be a combination of the E2T-MV and the EDCL-2T, and I'd buy that tooÖ but I want to own both of your two-cell lights of this season! . (The third one will be the Sidekick, which I'll get off my keister and finally buy)

    PK designs his new multi setting stuff around 15 lumens and it's a very, very useable output when the battery absolutely, positively has to last until help arrives.
    If we're putting it to the vote, I'd say run with a low of 15. It's adequate for moving about outdoors if you're not in a hurry, good for indoors. 5 is okay if you're in a familiar area, but not as useful for getting about in the vast unknown.

    Default SUREFIRE EDCL-2T

    While Iíve always thought 5 lumens wouldnít be enough, I use my current Surefire (EB1 & E1B-MV) with a 5 lumen low and they provide plenty of illumination for my needs.

    Iím looking forward to the EDCL-1T!

    Agreed w/ Sean above, using the same 2 for EDC & digging JJRG's last post as well.

    What makes you think people will pay to buy it? The UM2 is on clearance as it is(Which benefits us but not Surefire). Considering the UM2 was originally priced at 300, you want to pay 50 dollar LESS for more features that costs a lot more to integrate?

    I see the EDCL-2 on both Surefire website and another vendor is allowing me to add it to cart. Does that mean it is in stock and ready to sell?

    I just placed an order over the phone and the sales rep said it's on backorder. However, they should be back in stock at the end of the week.

    I put in an order with a vendor and the order went through, but who knows what will happen once it goes to processing.

    I'm sure there is a pent up demand for a E2D/EB2 format light with significantly more output than the 500 version that first came out in early 2013(?) as the E2DL Ultra, and the currently owners were not in a hurry to upgrade to the 600 lumen version.

    So, I just got my first production EDCL-2T in hand (the cobblerís children have no shoes). The low setting is brighter than 5 lumens. Iíll report back after I talk to engineering.

    I'm getting these new SF threads confused. Have I missed the release date for the new single cell EDCL?

    Considering both the one cell and the two cell models.

    I ordered one from the SF website. I am going to try the head on a single cell body and other lego experiments. Maybe I won't need to buy another light so soon.
