SFV1BK: V1 Vampire Dual-Output LED – White and IR Output
The V1 Vampire is an ultra-compact, combat-ready dual-output flashlight that provides both white light and infrared output without the need for an IR filter. This ground- breaking handheld illumination tool features virtually failure-proof power-regulated white and infrared LEDs and a precision Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens that optimally shapes both beams for reach and surround light. 

The V1’s click-type tailcap switch—shrouded to help prevent accidental activation—lets you quickly select an output level. In white light mode, partially press the tailcap pushbutton for a momentary-on 120-lumen high-output beam; press further to click constant-on high. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds for 10-lumen low-output beam with extended runtime. 

To switch between white light, disable, and infrared modes you simply pull then twist the front knurled portion of the bezel. The tailcap switch again lets you easily select output levels in IR mode—partially press for a momentary-on 100-milliwatt high-output beam, press further to click constant-on high. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds for a 5-milliwatt low IR beam. 

The V1 Vampire runs on a single 123A lithium battery, is constructed of aerospace aluminum that’s Mil-Spec hard anodized for extreme durability, and is 0-ring and gasket sealed to keep out moisture. The V1 also features a lockout tailcap, which prevents accidental activation during storage or transport. 

A somewhat larger two-battery version of this light, the V2 Vampire, provides slightly different operating controls, along with slightly increased output and runtimes in both white light and IR modes.

Pros: Durability, Brightness
Cons: None
Why so expensive you ask?
So it's been posited that this is an absurdly expensive light and cheaper, albeit brighter, alternatives were given. While there are certainly less expensive, brighter lights those arent the only two criteria when purchasing a light. There's a simple reason that this light is so expensive: IR capability. For those that haven't been in the military it's an invaluable function when using NVGs or needing a backup for covert illumination - whether for marking a target or for troop movements. There are other options out there like external filters, but that's just another piece of gear that will inevitably be lost or broken when needed most. The internal IR eliminates that possibility. Surefire are awesome lights and are all I use, particularly for weapon lights.

rip off
So why would you spend 250.00 on a light that puts out 120 lm? When you can get a better quality light like the Jet beam rrto that puts out 730 lm for 98.00 or a Zebra SC 600 light that puts out a blinding 1100 lm OTF for 130.00 that is samller and tougher then this joke of a light
