The new HellFighter 5 ARC light from SureFire will be shipping soon according to the staff I spoke with at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) in Tampa, FL. The HellFighter 5 is the latest member of the HellFighter portable searchlights from the company.
With 4,500 lumens and 1,000,000 candela, these lights throw a very long (and bright) beam – a minimum of 2,000 meters actually.
The HellFighter 5 has a lithium-ion battery pack that is good for 80 minutes on a single charge. The lights will run indefinitely when plugged in, as they would be when mounted to a vehicle. They do charge while running.
The weight is not bad: 5.1 pounds including the battery pack.
SureFire expects these will be shipping in the very near future. MSRP has not been set yet, but the rep told me to expect to see something around $3,900.
