The SureFire Minimus AA Variable-Output LED Headlamp is a high-efficiency tactical LED headlamp that provides brilliant white light for any situation. With an adjustable output from zero to 100 lumens, via the knurled no-slip right-hand control knob for a runtime of 50 minutes up to an hour and a half. It runs on either the two "AA" lithium batteries (included) or the more commonly found two "AA" alkaline batteries; the batteries are contained within the tilt-control knob. The tilt-control knob features a battery access cap with a short leash to prevent dropping or losing it.
The proprietary refractive optic produces a wide beam optimized for your natural field of view and an optional red filter is sold separately (HSZ-FM-SET01 filter kit) to provide adequate tactical lighting without ruining your dark-adapted vision. The inclusion of a long-running SOS beacon provides added safety features when needed most and the fine-weave headband is strong yet comfortable. It features a moisture-wicking Breathe-O-Prene forehead pad.
Built from tough polymer and aerospace aluminum, hard-anodized in Desert Tan, the Minimus Tactical is lightweight, yet like other Minimus headlamps it is tough enough for the rigors of combat, caving and mountaineering and is submersible to 3 feet for up to 30 minutes.
