Special Features and Benefits of SureFire Dominator:
High Performance LED System
As you’ll agree with me, it takes a great LED system to output 2,400 lumens of white light. SureFire, therefore, employs the Luminous CBT-90, an advanced LED technology to enable the light to output such a big number of lumens.
The ultra bright produced is great but not the end of the light’s high performance.
The real deal is struck when this light mirror-like, high precision, mirror-like reflector. Here, the beam undergoes a special treatment, converting it into an impressive, far reaching beam with an intensity of over 200,000 candelas.The beam has an extremely intense center spot and corona whose intensity is slightly less than that of the center spot.
While this corona can illuminate an area about 300 yards away, the center spot doubles this distance- allowing you to illuminate objects over 650 yards away.
Durable All-Round Construction
The body of this light is made from high strength aerospace grade aluminum metal. This makes the body strong and capable of withstanding regular abuses associated with the tactical flashlights.
The durability is reinforced by coating the body of this light with mil-spec hard, matte black finish that is immune to scratches, corrosions, and abrasiveness.
Dual Fuel Capable Flashlight
SureFire Dominator is primarily a rechargeable battery that uses a lithium-ion rechargeable battery as its power source. However, the light has been designed such that you can also install non-rechargeable CR123 lithium batteries. Both models of batteries works well, and it’s upon you to choose the ones to use.
SureFire packs the flashlight with a dozen of CR123 batteries and one Li-Ion nonrechargeable battery to make it ready for use the moment it arrives at your house.
NINE Power Output Levels Supported
The 11-selector ring that comes with this light allows you to utilize different modes of power from the same light other than the High Setting of 2,400 lumens. Note that if you opt for a lower power mode than this, the beam distance will decree but the runtime will be higher.
Here’s a chart of the different power modes:
- Level 9 (Max Blast): 2400 lumens
- Level 8: 1220 lumens
- Level 7: 640 lumens
- Level 6: 340 lumens
- Level 5 (Medium): 185 lumens
- Level 4: 96 lumens
- Level 3: 48 lumens
- Level 2: 24 lumens
- Level 1 (Low): 14 lumens
Battery Power Indicator
An integrated fuel gauge LED system in this light allows you to read the remaining battery power quickly.
Here’s how it works:
1. Green: indicates that the battery level is 90% or more and can thus sustain the current level output.
2. Amber: the battery charge is low. You need to either change the battery mode or recharge/replace the battery.
3. Red: the batter power is almost depleted and should be replaced or recharged ASAP. If the batter power level becomes critically low, the fuel gauge starts flashing red.
SureFire Dominator is gasket ad O-ring sealed. This acts as enough evidence that you can use the flashlight in any weather condition without fear of factors such as dust moisture, dirt, mist, fog, etc., interfering with its operation.
As we’ve already said earlier, the light is primarily designed to be rechargeable. It’s for this reason that the manufacturer included the lithium ion battery in the package. Other charging accessories that come with the battery package to make it easy to charge the light include AC wall charger (with international adapters) and 12DVC car charger.
A detailed user manual on how to charge the flashlight is also included.
SureFire Dominator Supports Multiple Switch Systems!
When the selector is OFF in any given position, there’s an alternative way of controlling the flashlight. And this option involves using the three head switches that area extremely easy to operate.
These switches are:
CONST (constant ON): use this to activate the flashlight in the mode selected by the ring. If you press this switch again, you’ll turn the light OFF. While the light is on, you can sue the selector ring to vary the output mode.
MOMENT (momentary): this one provides momentary output by the selected power level until you press the button. Again, you can sue the selector ring to switch between different output levels when the light is on.
MAX BLAST (Constant ON): this switch triggers the 2,400 lumens r maximum output level. It does this irrespective of the current level of the selector ring. Pressing this button again turns the light OFF.
