First Impressions | SureFire TITAN

Blaster Bits at Brownells – build it better.

A few years ago SureFire came out with their version of a “compact keychain light”, the Titan T1A. It was a great little light, but the design team may have mistaken a Vodka bottle for a water bottle, as there was a critical fuck-up: the CR123 battery made this light huge.

Fast forward about four years. SF announced the new and updated Titan lights at the 2015 Shot Show – a great improvement from a design perspective, but also a great buy.

Price: $70 for Titan Plus, $40 for basic Titan (this is Mil, LEO and emergency responder pricing – add 30% for civilians)

Tiny size (true keychain light)

Output: 300/75/15 lumen for Titan plus(1hr/2hrs/7hrs), 125/15 lumen for Titian (1hr/8hrs)

Basic regulation: normalizing light output for the duration of battery life

No-bullshit best warranty in the business

The Titan is aluminum while the Titan Plus is brass and significantly heavier. The Titan Plus is also slightly longer (that’s what she said).

Build that blaster on a budget.

We’re a little ways into field testing, and so far so good. A full review will follow. Probably. If I have time. One thing I can’t help but wonder, though…what fucktard decided to anodize this light in silver? WTAF bro? Black, tan or gray on version 2 pozhaluista.

    I have heard that batteries other than the included rechargeable get stuck and are ver hard to remove. Have you found this to be the case?

      Regular Titian with low serial # – yes – real bitch to remove the AAA – surefire will swap out a light for you. Easy DIY fix it to shave off a bit of material from the battery ring – Dremel. That’s what I did

      Titian plus – no issues at all.

    So basically Surefire designs a light without tactical features and you wonder why it comes in non-tactical color, yes?
