    Except tailcap and marking, all the E1E are three-cambered body and lotus-like bezel while some E1e are the same, some earlier version E1e are three-flat bodies body or two-cambered body(with z57 tailcap) with flat bezel.

    RPM has tailcaps that are recommended.

    I've bought quite a few parts and lamps from the E series from lumens factory. Very happy with all purchases.

    Awesome thread and lights!! I'm just now getting in to E series. I have a Lumens Factory E2 with a Malkoff switch and M61WL in an MDE head and a Lumens Factory E1 with a Defender Head and Tail and a Tana SingLED. I keep checking LFs site every day for the E series heads they have coming out. I plan on putting together 2 more lights when they come out.

    Hey guys, looking for a little help on an old E2E that recently came into my possession. I need an incan bulb as the stock one is blown. I'm guessing these are just a stock MN-03 and I can source a replacement easily on eBay? Also, the stock plastic lens is cloudy and cracked. Are these easy to replace? Can I just stick a screwdriver through the bulb hole in the reflector, push it out and press in a new one. If so, anyone know where I can get a new one?

    Thanks guys!!

    That's a 3v MN-01 bulb. 6v are blue (MN-02) and white (MN-03) Either blue or white for that light. Don't overlook Lumensfactory bulbs if stock SF are hard to come by. I'll let others talk about the lens, I don't know how replaceable they are...

    The Original bulb leads are soldered to the metal disc. I found it tricky soldering a new bulb lead on to the disc but it can be done.

    Most difficult part for me was the metal disc attached to the plastic housing. The disc is pressed into a plastic holder that if youre not careful, disc wont stay secure on the plastic.

    Question is, where would you source 3v Incan bulb in the same size? If you find the source, please do share. Ive been looking for mn-01 bulbs myself.

    Thanks for the tip, unfortunately no luck. Looks like no one makes a replacement and even if they did it would be very difficult to replace. Looks like my little E2E is destined to be a shelf queen for a while longer.

    What's more popular? E1s or E2s? The E1E is a neat little light, but I'm really digging the E2E with an MN02 bulb.

    Popular ? ... tough to say.

    Market value ? ... I think E1 >> E2, especially in BK finish

    True, but the E2e is more practical as an EDC because of the longer runtime. However I use both.

    Just call Surefire! They will send you over whatever replacement stuff you need.

    Yep, one thing I've always noticed though.. The early MN02's are dark blue, the later MN02's are light blue. And the really early MN03's have a tan colored base.

    Ah crap. You'll be best off getting a lumens factory replacement head/lamp or trying to find an original on ebay. The pyrex hex heads are not easy to find these days either, and you'll lose the pocket clip. You can still find MN03's pretty easily. I think you can still even order them from Surefire along with the P60 and MN10/MN11.

    AFAIK Surefire never did make a lexan replacement kit for the E-series heads, only the P/Z/C series. Whenever the lexan SF heads were damaged, SF just replaced the entire head.
