With the improvements we made, you will be able to operate with our products much easier and hardly ever encounter problems with unwanted sliding.
How does it work?
When the torch is slid to Focus, simply turn the head a couple of degrees to the left to enable the lock-function. This will engage a brake-function which will prevent unwanted sliding from focus to flood beam.

Our Q7defend is designed for multiple tactical use in mind.
The front is carefully shaped so it can be used to:
- Breaking light surfaces
- When switched on and placed upside down, it shows a small area of light, enabling easy location of the torch
- Clip hanger
- Shaped for self-defense
- Breaking light surfaces
A colour of light for every operative situation.
Yellow, blue, green and red - choose your filter
Yellow = Will have an easier effect on the eyes, and display a less bright light
Blue = Adds a cooler light
Green = Improves your night vision and electronic night vision equipment is less sensitive to green light
Red = Will preserve your night vision better and is hard to see at a distance. If you use a red colour filter at night, on your torch, you can see what is around you, using your eye cones (registers red, blue and green light). The rods (registers grey light) in the eye can't see the red light and your night adapted vision is unaffected. Turn off the red light and you can go right back to looking at the forrest, piste or track in the same detail as before.
All colour filters are sold separately
The unique design of the Q7defend efficiently prevents unwanted rolling by utilizing the textured surface material. We kept the original round-shaped torch design, but still managed to keep it stable when placed on a flat surface.
Our iconic defend torches are made from High Strength Aluminium, coloured in tactical black and has a soft touch urethane coating surface providing maximum grip. Using aluminum has many advantages; it gives a sturdy and durable torch, that can withstand being used. Our aluminum body also works as a big heat-sink, ensuring that the LED is being cooled properly
The High quality of craftsmanship going in to our torches, ensures that our products always perform as they were intended to do. A smooth sliding focus, a solid silicone touch switch, highly efficient optics, ripped ergonomic handle ensuring you a firm grip. All of the things combined is what makes a Suprabeam.
The defend series come as a standard with two lenses. One is placed just above the LED to increase the effect of the optics and provide a powerful 5-degree spotlight. The other one is placed between the LED and top cap. This gives the torch an extra layer of protection, and is easy to exchange in case of wear and tear. Especially if used in dessert terrain, with possible occurrences of sandstorms, the lens can get frosted and give blurred beam over time. This way you can quickly replace the outer lens or add a colour filter just by unscrewing the head.
The switch inside a Suprabeam torch is first grade electronics, ensuring a long lifetime and correct functionality every time.
The switch is a metal button with Touch function at rear, allowing you to step through the light modes without activating the switch completely. The different light functions are controlled by ILC = Intelligent Light Control
Boost = Maximum output allowed by battery and LED
Strobe = Flashing strobe light at 10 Hz
High = Sustainable high light output
Medium = Medium light output, medium lifetime
Low = Long term low light output
A Suprabeam flashlight is a high drain device, which makes it ideal to use with rechargeable
batteries. You will have the same great Suprabeam light, be environmentally sound and save
money. Here is a quick example to illustrate the difference between rechargeable and alkaline.
In the chart you can see the difference between using Alkaline and rechargeable batteries in your torch / flashlight. We estimate that the 4XAAA batteries will be changed after 10 hours of use. The prices on batteries are market prices for high end Energizer Alkaline and high end rechargeable Eneloop batteries.
