The newest Surefire 2211 Wristlight was announced at SHOW Show this past January, but like a lot of things, it was slow to hit the market. Well, it is finally on Surefire’s website and hopefully at your nearest dealer. Nicholas C 1st reported on this from SHOT Show, and now we have a little more information as well as photos to go off of.
This model is hands-free and rechargeable just like previous ones. The most noticeable difference is the large, central button for simplicity. You can click through 3 levels of intensity: 300, 60 and 15 lumens with run times of 1, 4 and 13 hours respectively. These 3 intensity settings can be set to go from low-to-high or high-to-low. Whatever the end user prefers. The multiple intensities are handy for an array of uses from the simple to extreme. Surefire orientated the beam to parallel the muzzle of your pistol when using a two-handed grip, or if you cannot see where you dropped your cellphone in your car. For those who have owned 2211 Wristlight models in the past, you will also notice the now polymer body; formerly aluminum. This gives it a lighter weight and a lower price point.
This revamped 2211 Wristlight uses an LED as its light source and has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Both of which are efficient in their battery usage. For added simplicity, there is a “fuel gauge” which easily indicates the remaining battery life of the 2211 Wristlight.
This wristlight can also be mated to a headlamp strap for added utility. This comes separately, of course. The strap for the wristlight itself is adjustable so whether you got wrists like Popeye, or that of a .410 Gauge shotgun barrel, it will fit you.
The one downside which seems to come with all Surefire products is the steep price tag. The quality is always there, but it may be too spendy for the weekend, range-warrior or tinkerer.
