The Maximus features a one-handed output adjustment that ranges from from 1 to 500 lumens. When set at 1 lumen, the headlamp can run for up to 70 hours. At 500 lumens, the headlamp can run for up to one hour.
A large knurled dial permits output control with one hand, even if it’s gloved or numbed by cold.
One hand is also all it takes to aim the Maximus Headlamp right where you want it since the light assembly rotates up and down 90 degrees.
The Maximus utilizes a high-performance LED and a custom reflector to produce a wide, diffused beam optimized for your natural field of vision, but which also provides impressive reach at its max output setting.
Power on the Maximus Headlamp comes from an integral rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can provide years of use. Chargers for both wall-type AC outlets and 12-volt DC vehicle accessory outlets are included, as is one battery.
A fuel gauge on the headlamp gives battery charge status and a long-running SOS beacon provides an extra margin of safety for days if needed.
Built from tough, lightweight magnesium, the SureFire Maximus thrives in harsh conditions and is waterproof up to one meter depth.
Thanks to its no-chafe fine-weave headband and moisture-wicking Breathe-O-Prene forehead pad, the Maximus Headlamp is also comfortable to wear.
The Maximus Headlamp retails for $275.
