Under nine inches long and just over five pounds in weight, the HellFighter 5 is SureFire’s most compact, most powerful, and versatile searchlight suitable for crew-served / heavy gun weapon light applications. A precision mirror-finish reflector with a rugged high intensity discharge (HID) lamp generates a 4,500-lumen, 730,000 candela beam with a maximum range in excess of 1,600 meters, yet provides a wide cone of peripheral light for situational awareness and enhanced patrol or search efficacy. The filament-free HID lamp, virtually immune to failure from recoil, vibration, or impact, will last for thousands of hours.
The HellFighter 5 can be powered in four different ways:
An integral long-life lithium-ion rechargeable battery that can power the HF5 for 80 minutes. The battery not only provides a backup case of external power failure but also makes the HF5 compact and convenient when used as a handheld searchlight/spotlight. A 5-level LED indicator lets you instantly see the battery charge level; the lowest-level LED flashes when 10% or less power remains. A 90% discharged HF5 battery can typically be brought up to 80% capacity in one hour. The HellFigher 5’s light output remains constant until the battery is discharged; there is no gradual output decrease as battery charge decreases.
Any vehicle accessory outlet (“cigarette lighter” socket) that supplies from 11 to 32 volts DC. The included cable plugs into the accessory socket one end and the rear of the HF5 at the other end.
An AC-to-DC plug-in power supply/battery charger with integral cable (included); simultaneously powers the HellFighter 5 and recharges it’s integral battery.
BA-5590 and similar military batteries, via an optional power cable that clips to the battery/batteries at one end and plugs in the rear of the HF5 at the other end.
Power supply cables with remote switches are available. The HF5 also features an integral rear-located momentary/constant-on pushbutton switch, which also serves as a backup switch should a remote cable switch assembly be damaged or otherwise fail.
The HF5 has an integral heavy-duty rapid attach/detach T-rail clamp that permits it to be mounted to any weapon or vehicle fitted with a T-rail. SureFire offers several T-rail options for both. An available HFM-10 adapter permits attaching the HF5 to a MIL-STD-1913 (“Picatinny”) rail. Additionally, the HF5 can be attached to virtually any vehicle or vessel with a suitable flat surface via the M99A or M99B or M99C T-Rails, or via the M100 plate and stud mount combined with the M96 universal swivel/tilt mount (see Parts and Accessories on this page). All mounting systems are sold separately.
A low-profile folding carry handle provides a secure, convenient grip when using the HF5 as a spotlight/searchlight, and during mounting, dismounting, and maintenance. Handle locks in down position to prevent movement and rattling. Built to withstand intense recoil and combat conditions, the HellFighter 5 has a sealed body constructed from high-strength aerospace aluminum finished in Mil-Spec Type III hard anodizing, and it is waterproof to 1 meter depth. The lamp assembly is protected by a 3mm coated tempered glass window, and the window itself can be protected from dust, mud, and heavy particle impact by optional removable screw-on colored filters, or optional semi-permanent swing-open colored filters. All HellFighter power cables now feature a high-strength polymer sheathing that makes them thin, light, flexible, yet extremely durable. Reflector, lamp, and rechargeable battery unit are field-replaceable. A tough polymer carrying case is available as an option.
