What I Like About This Product:

This flashlight is extremely bright and the light beam is very intense, thus as a self-defense flashlight it works perfect.  The brightness of this bulb will render a person momentarily blind when this light is shined directly into their eyes.  The push button tail-cap switch works great and very easy to operate.  I use this in combination with my firearm and it works very well.  Is it an inexpensive flashlight, NO, but it is worth the money and will last a very long time.

What I Would Change About This Product:

The only thing to remember is these lithium batteries do not last a long time so you always need to have some of these batteries on hand.  That means you must plan ahead and keep them ordered ahead of time.

Final Remarks:

The Surefire E2D Defender is an excellent self-defense flashlight and works extremely well.  Is it a drawback needing lithium batteries, absolutety not!  You just need to plan ahead and keep them on hand at home.  While flashlight that use AA, AAA, etc. batteries are easier to get batteries, they do not usually have as bright of a light beam.  I highly recommend this flashlight as your self-defense tactical light.
