    So far so good with this Hellfighter5. Great to take the dog out with early in the mornings but draws lots of attention when i aim it up in the air...Great light in my opinion..Anyone else snag one of these yet?

    Anyone else here yet besides me that stepped up to the plate and purchased the new Surefire Hellfighter5 yet..? I see lots of chatter about all the older models but yet to hear anything about the new self contained Hellfighter5?

    So early this am I thought I would try out the Hellfighter5 for the first time since i bought it and ran it for about 72 minutes before the battery ran out on me. All is fine but noticed that a small round mark about the size of a dime appears on the front lens. Looks to be almost frosted in color and wondering if there should be any discoloration on the front lens from use..? Hmmmmm

I also wonder about all the talk and interest in Hellfighter's that no one really has stepped up to the plate to add the NEWEST VERSION..?

    I'd love to get one... If only it didn't cost over 5x what I paid for my car...!

    I've always loved the hell fighters, super cool looking lights, and now that it's self contained even more appealing.

    Thanks for sharing, can't wait to see some pics outside!

    Yes that is exactly what it was as it vanished after about 20 minutes or so after i shut the light down. That is the first time i ever ran a light so long so had no idea..

    Bulbmogul, you can insert desiccant packs into the light and they'll pull the humidity from the light. Leave them inside for a day or two and store the light that way.

    If you've got access to a low temperature oven, remove the battery from the light and bake at 100-120f for a few hours and insert battery and close up the light. Do not bake with battery inside or exceed 120f.
    Those that can, do. Those that can't, teach.

    What NoNotAgain is describing is more like one of those fruit dehydrators where there is a small heating element just to raise the temp a little and lower the humidity, and a fan to move the air around. Never gets up to more than around 120°.

    Biggest reason is price and coming up with a good portable power supply. It also is a rather large light just to be carrying around. Not to many of us have large caliber guns that we need to mount a light on either. :-)

    I was just now on the SUREFIRE WEBSITE and noticed the absence of a Hellfighter5. Can this light like the Arc2-8C be out of production? I never heard of anyone else here or pretty much anywhere ever talk about or show their Surefire Hellfighter5. Must be short lived and quite happy i got my hands on a brand new one..

    From yer boastin' in yer postin'... Maybe you should get yourself a can or two of your 18K....no 24K Gold, redwood-tinted stain and a paintbrush and improve the appearance of your deck where the H5 has obviously done a grand job
    of stripping the paint! My, a USEFUL light and activity for you bm! I generally use my 2nd hand (They call him second-hand Karl....) Sears 22.65 watt "Basto-away" paint heat gun for such activities but then again, I'm not bm!

    Hey BM, some of the folks here, sledhead, scout24 and I (others to come?) are informally planning s field testing of some of our retina-burning lights. No doubt you'll need some insurance to drag your lights into the field but, give some consideration to showing up---be sure to bring the Hassey , Leicas and all the other goodies so we can record what we have both the "users" and, the "unobtainables"!! We'd all sure like ta meet ya!!

    I don't think its possible to buy a BNIB one anymore as they appear to have been removed from Surefire Website. Does not appear as they sold to many of these at all and best chance would be to search ebay for a used one..
