PK FL2 LE 650 lumen light

PK aka Paul Kim, is the creator of many of SureFire’s flashlights when he was VP of Engineering at SureFire. Now he has a new light, the FL2 LE.  The FL2 LE is similar in size to the traditional SureFire 6P. It is a 2 cell light powered by 2x CR123 batteries.

SureFire has their 2 cell Fury lights that put out a whopping 500 lumens. However the PK FL2LE screams out 650 lumens in the same size package and running on the same batteries.

The knurling of the light is fantastic. It is grippy and yet not so aggressive that it hurts your naked hand. I saw the FL2LE at Shot Show 2014 when I caught PK in passing. I own one and I have to say it is a very potent light. Blows my other two cell lights out of the water. The smaller light below is his AAA EDC light, the PL2.

The light is powered by a CREE XML2 led. It has a high mode of 650 lumens and a low of 40 lumens. On high it will run for 1.4 hours.  On low it will run for 21.8 hours. The light body is made of 6061 Aircraft aluminum and has Mil Spec hard anodizing.

You press the tailcap for momentary on. Push harder and it clicks on. You switch to low by pressing or clicking off and on again. The light retails for $190 and is currently available in the US from Black Moon Ltd.

Lionheart Industries is a big supporter of PK’s work.

    $200 for a handheld? Hmmm running more than SureFire Furys…..

    • Nicholas C

      They are $190. A bit more than a Fury yes. But definitely brighter.

        I’ve run a Coleman T-24 240 lumen light ($25 at W**M***) on my AR for a year and 200 rounds. It turns a pitch dark room into day. I can’t imagine wanting a room brighter than day to do what you came there for!

    I don’t think you’re using brainchild correctly in that sentence. It would make sense if the flashlights were his brainchildren, but not the other way around.

    • Bp. David

      Actually–his brainlights we his flashchildren! (Not the other way around!)

  • Random FFL

    I understand there is a big following for Surefire lights, and they are among the highest quality lights available….

    With that said, the Fenix PD35 is brighter, more versatile, reliable, and just over 1/3 the cost at $69.99 on Amazon.

    That’s just one example of the many lights that are half the cost of Surefire while outperforming them. While I respect the Surefire brand, I would always recommend those interested in “bang for the buck” to look elsewhere.

      There’s a big difference in quality between those. A typical surefire flashlight has very high quality electronics in it and most of their models can be mounted to a long gun and no break apart from shock, you can’t do that with a Fenix light. The Fenix lights are also made in china. Not sure about these PK lights though.

      • FindYourInnerWoodsman

        Ill tell you right now thats wrong. Ive run three diff models of the fenix brand on my 870 for the last two years with all manner of loads and as long as there are frwsh batteries ive had nigh a problem.

      • David Fiorito

        I have carried a Fenix in my pocket for five years. It has been dropped countless times, run through the washer and dryer … twice, submerged in fresh and salt water, and it is still going strong. I would have bought a Surefire, but I was unemployed when my last light died and the price could not be beat. I figured it would last a year and by then I could upgrade, but it is still going strong.

    1.4 hours on high is not bad but I use my flashlight on duty all the time and I would rather sacrifice lumens for run time. I used to carry the Streamlight Protac HL but it ate batteries like crazy.

  • Whargl Bargl

    More info on the smaller flashlight please.

    • Nicholas C

      Don’t have much info to share. It is called the CL2. It runs on a AAA and I think it is 65 or 85 lumens. I dont have a sphere to test it. The bezel is Titanium.
