SureFire EB2 – A 2-Cell Backup Light


The EB2 Backup is a higher-output, two-battery version of the EB1 Backup you are all familiar with. It is a dual-output flashlight (5 Lumens and 500 Lumens) designed as a backup light for patrol officers or as a primary light for plainclothes officers. SureFire also recommends it for outdoor, self-defense, and everyday-carry use.

Powered by two 123A lithium batteries, the EB2 Backup features a LED emitter and a precision Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens. The EB2 is constructed of high-strength aerospace aluminum that has been Mil-Spec Type III hard anodized and O-ring sealed to protect against the elements.

This useful dual-output light comes in two versions: a click-type tailcap switch or tactical tailcap switch. To activate the EB2 with a click-type switch, just press or click the tailcap pushbutton once for the tactical-level 500-lumen high beam that can reach deep into the night or overwhelm an aggressor’s dark-adapted vision. Return to off and press or click again within two seconds to activate the 5-lumen low beam, useful for navigating, loading gear, and other tasks that don’t require a lot of light. With the tactical tailcap version of the EB2, press for momentary-on low, press farther for momentary-on high, and twist the tailcap for constant-on activation at either level.


All EB2 models are available in Black or Tan.

Features and Benefits:
• Two output levels—high for maximum light, low for extended runtime
• Two tailcap switch options: click-on/off or press-for-momentary activation/twist-for-constant-on
• TIR lens produces tight beam with reach and enough surround light for peripheral vision
• Coated, tempered window resists impact and maximizes light output
• Two-way clip permits light to be carried head up or down, or clipped to a hat brim or bill

• Powered by two included 123A lithium batteries with 10-year shelf life
• Backed by SureFire’s No-Hassle Promise

    Be still me beating heart.

    Is that a…

    …pocket clip?

  2. Bill says:

    Equally importantly, is that a bezel without useless scraping teeth designed to wear out pockets and ensure fluid contamination, however slight, if used in self defense?

  3. Trajan says:

    What’s most important that I am seeing here is that, while slightly longer than the Fury, they seem to have focused on runtime more. Tactical runtime: 2.25 hours, vs the Furys (and most other SF lights) 1.5 hours.

    Won’t be replacing my Fury with RCS clip, but this is a step in the right direction.

      The Raven clip is awesome but it won’t fit the V70 holster, which is my favorite because of its versatility and reduced potential for light ND.

  4. Haji says:

    I love that clip design. I hate how frequently I break those clips. 500 lumens, though, is pretty sweet.

  5. fmfbest says:

    Am I right that the clip can be used lense up or down?

    Yawn…great work on re-inventing

    Sorry post AD….

    great work on re-inventing the wheel on another hand held, here’s a novel concept why don’t we stop wasting time on re-inventing your selection of 500 hand held lights as well as wasting time on retarded shit like wrist watch lights that don’t work and lets get the Mini scout vampire and X400 Vampire out of engineering purgatory where they have been trapped for the last 4 F***ing years!

    Really hoping they come out with a shrouded tailcap version like is available on the EB1.
