Thread: Amber vs Red choice

  1. #1

    Default Amber vs Red choice

    If this has been covered before, please let me know where - I looked at the thread titles and havenít seen this topic before

    I have the red filter for the Surefire E series so can see what to expect, how does it differ to the Amber? Is Amber brighter than the red? What is the use of Amber vs red? I think ina tent it would be brighter and nicer, but wonder whether I would just use dim mode instead.

    Any feedback greatfully received, the other day both options were available in black aluminium so not sure which to go for

    Thank you.

    I like amber just my preference. But I do own one Red secondary. Hope this helps

    Amber is a bit brighter and works better in city settings. The red is not as bright, but more stealthy. Both are great, just depends on taste. I have a mix of OR lights in red and amber.

    Thanks guys. I expect I would mainly use 4 levels of white light but nice to have a coloured option. Amber might be best as I already have red covered with my Haiku.

    Thanks again

    Additionally you can use the bounce feature for red or amber to make it a hidden 5th mode. Those secondary LED are very useful for EDC.
