The SureFire M6 Guardian is a flashlight with a 250 or 500 lumen beam from a xenon incandescent light bulb. Surefire claims that this is bright enough to temporarily blind and disorient a person by impairing his/her night-adapted vision. Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has been noted as owning the M6 Guardian and for giving it plaudits.
The New York Times referred to the M6 as being of the “design school that might be called Modern Militant, the most familiar example of which is the Hummer.” This was later used in Surefire’s marketing brochure about the M6..
The grandly-named SureFire Hellfire Weaponlight uses uses a 35 watt HID (high intensity discharge) bulb. The bulb is shock isolated and is very bright. The light can be powered by a 12 volt car battery or by two 5595 military batteries. The output of the bulb is around 3000 lumens, bright enough to illuminate targets hundreds of yards away. It also has a wide beam which allows light to illuminate targets around the center of the beam. It is designed to be attached to a machine gun.
