Product Description

Product Description

The ultra compact T1A Titan flashlight boasts impressive output from a single 123A lithium battery, but it also offers a near infinite range of lower output settings which allow you to conserve battery power or preserve your night vision when doing close work like map reading. A virtually indestructible power-regulated LED emitter and precision micro-textured reflector produce a smooth beam that's selectable, with just a twist of the bezel, from zero to 70 lumens—more than three times the output of a much larger two-D-cell flashlight. The stylish T1A Titan is small enough to attach to your keychain, wear around your neck on its included lanyard, or stay in your pocket for easy access.

About SureFire
The SureFire story begins in 1969, when Dr. John Matthews--an engineer with a Ph.D. from Cal Tech--founded the Newport Corporation in order to harness the power of the laser for industrial applications. Over time, Matthews turned his inventive mind toward shooting (his hobby and passion), hoping to adapt lasers as firearm sights. He eventually designed and patented a laser sight in 1979, and subsequently bought the laser sight business from the Newport board in order to focus exclusively on commercializing the product. The newly formed Laser Products debuted with a handgun sight for the Colt Trooper, following it up with a sight for a Ruger Mini-14.

In 1984, the business took a huge leap forward with a phone call from the Los Angeles Police Department's SWAT Team, which wanted to borrow a number of laser-sighted shotguns for security during the 1984 Olympic Games. In the years that followed, the technically superb, yet seriously expensive, laser-sighted firearms paved the way for future developments, including a weapon-mounted flashlight called the SureFire WeaponLight. Laser Products went on to establish itself as the leading manufacturer of rugged, powerful, and compact illumination tools for tactical applications--from weapon-mounted lights and laser sights to handheld lights powerful and bright enough to qualify as "force-option" tools that could temporarily blind, unbalance, and disorient a threat. Eventually, the SureFire moniker became so synonymous with excellence in handheld illumination tools that the company changed its name to SureFire LLC.

This is worth the money. Battery life is very good. Very bright when you want it to be, and not so much when you want a dimmer light. It flickers when the battery is getting low so you have to turn the power down to stop the flickering, or replace the battery. Kinda a cool way of letting you know it needs a new battery. All in all a very good product

Update:
I've had this light for almost 2 years now. I keep it on my keychain and take it with me everywhere. It has been dropped and beaten more times than I can count. Still works great!

I've been carrying this light around for a couple weeks now, and it's perfect for the job. I've carried around various small LED flashlights in my pocket daily for years because they come in handy so often. My previous favorite was the Gerber Tempo, a single AAA light that is well made, tough enough to survive in a pocket with keys and change, and works without fail. But I started looking for something a little brighter, and having been pleased with other Surefire lights, I searched for what was available and found the T1A.

Once I got over the shock of how much it cost, and read many reviews, I somehow justified the price and ordered one. And although I still feel a bit guilty at spending this much, I am not sorry or disappointed.
The light is bright for its size, but that alone doesn't justify the cost to me. I don't always need a bright light. A dimmer setting is often adequate. I could have settled for a light with two settings, but what sold me on this light is its continuously variable output. I can dial it up just as high as I need. Not many lights can do that.

The T1A is just slightly longer and noticeably fatter than the Gerber I used to carry, and it's twice as heavy, but at only 2.2 oz., that's not much of an issue. It's a very slight added burden for a great increase in utility.

I have several of the Gerber lights, and at around $10 each, I'm not afraid to knock them around, drop them, or even lose them occasionally. I've been much more careful with the T1A. I still carry it around in my pocket, but I'm afraid of damaging it (even if just cosmetically), and even more so of losing it, since the light is fairly small and has a tendency to slip out of some of my shallower pants pockets.

Even though I own several flashlights, this is my favorite EDC (every day carry). The User Interface (U.I.) is one of the best out there. While other EDCs have one or more light intensity levels and functions (strobe, beacon, etc.), they require you to do different procedures with the switch that some would find difficult to remember. With the T1A, you just turn the bezel one way for more light output, and the other way for less light in a gradual form, couldn't be easier.

Some users complain about the 5 min auto-off feature it has, but I like it. Frequently when somebody borrows mine, they leave it in the lowest setting thinking that they have turned it off (it has a click detent just before it turns off completely). This feature gives me peace of mind by not worrying about battery depletion by accident, besides, if you turn it on beyond 5% intensity level or so, this feature is disabled.

The beam is "floody", which means it's not too concentrated on the center, it gives the impression of less output than it really has but this has its advantages as it helps you to see where you are stepping while lighting the way further in front of you or looking inside drawers or suitcases. Some reviewers report that the max true output is 81 lumens out the front (OTF) instead of the specified 70 lumens, Surefire is known to be conservative on the specified output of their flashlights. The light output is very adecuate and when used at the lower settings it doesn't impair your night vision when you turn it off.

Extremely well built, very smooth operation and super-reliable. Some users have reported "angry blue" tint on their T1A's, but I think the newer lights have this problem resolved (mine is cool white which is OK for me). Some would consider it expensive but really well worth it IMHO. Get it, you won't regret it. If it's a present for someone special, he or she are going to LOVE it.

I can't remember how many times I've had this item in the shopping cart and then took it out. Yes, it was always about the cost despite its lower price of today. Even so, unless you're a politician with depraved indifference towards spending, then you may think twice before clicking the mouse. After all, it's a single cell flashlight so the rationale can be perplexing.

Anyway, I've been using a different SureFire flashlight (E1B Backup) for more than 2-years and I'm happy with it. Although it's very durable I wanted something better suited for travel. It's always been annoying with its instant on flame-throwing bright setting. Still, for around the house or in dark parking lots it's great!

The `TITAN T1A' is a completely different animal with a rheostat adjustment from off to full brightness. This is excellent for traveling on a plane or fiddling around in dark areas where you don't want to bother other people or trash your night vision. The variable brightness adjustment is the key. It's also smaller than the Back-Up so it will fit more comfortably in your ditty bag or pocket. It comes with a heavy-duty lanyard that is markedly overkill for the size of the flashlight so I don't use it. Instead, I clipped off a piece of heavy shoelace and attached a plastic tassel from 'Tom Bihn' and it works great with a more balanced appearance. It doesn't scratch the finish and provides easy access from my pocket or carry-on.

Overall, I like the T1A although it remains as an expensive luxury since I already have the BackUp. Despite its obvious quality I feel that for the price, the rheostat should be smoother and even more precise than it already is. This flashlight is best suited for the minimalist, discriminating traveler or quality geeks. I happen to be all three so its a keeper'.
