Sneak Peek – SureFire Sidekick

I’ve heard about development of the Sidekick for awhile and it’s cool to finally get a glimpse.


The 300lumen maxvision beam uncovers dark areas at night with a range well past 50 Meters. Its medium and low-output settings, 60 and 5 lumens respectively, offer much more runtime and more than enough light for reading, close-up work, or even navigating outdoors while preserving dark-adapted vision. Recharges via USB and its fob size will find it right at home with your keys.

    I’ve been using a nitecore Tube for a few months and the tech has been out there for awhile. What these bring is USB recharging instead of swapping rechargeables, which allows a lot more freedom in shape and design.

    Theres’ a lot of price competition in this category, lumen output x run time is where you need to look for you money’s worth.

    This is an exciting addition, will make for a great flashlight for some of my family who typically only carry a keychain light.

    But what’s really piqued my interest is the USB + 300 lumens + compact size. I think that combination could be adapted in the future to a more compact CCW pistol light.

      Not rechargeable, but they are producing a 200 lumen compact weapon light, the XC1. Takes a single AAA. Happy to see these products coming to market. Look forward to future SF innovations.

        I’m pretty sure it says rechargeable on the box. The second icon down under LED on the left hand side of the packaging.

    I wonder where it’s made. It would be great if they are able to keep production in the US.

    And for $129.00, you too can have a keychain light.

    Looks like perfect size to be helmet light. It would be cool if there’s helmet mount or headstrap accessaries.

    Not bad looking, Aside from being rechargeable seems the titan plus can do the same this does. Just put some recharge 3A batts. in it… and its only $99

  7. Fred says:

    Amazon has them for $69.99

    If you are a Surefire Dealer, you’d be wise to notice this “Amazon Only” release and start investing in other product lines.

    We’ve stuck with them through some real BS… Thanks for the memories.
