What type of flashlights do law enforcement personnel use in the US and other countries as standard equipment?

How about military personnel?

Most of the deputies I work with carry either a Streamlight or a Pelican. Several have Surefire's, Fenix, etc. as a backup light. By far, most have the Streamlight rechargeable LED's.

I carry the Streamlight Stinger DS LED. I have a small Fenix on my belt as a backup. I have a Surefire G2 with and LED conversion and rechargeable batteries in my duty bag.

I like all three brands. I probably would not have bought the Streamlight if I had found the Fenix brand before I bought the Stinger. Fenix makes some great lights at an economical price.

You may want to post this in Coptalk to get additional feedback.

It has two modes. The first click is a steady super bright white beam, the second is a strobe. The attached photo was copied from the Streamlight website. A little pricey but what the heck, my department paid for it. A good thing about this is it has a car charger.

Here in Philippines, the issued flashlight of the Presidential Security Group is Fenix L2D Q5 CE but there are few who uses Surefire G2 and 6P/6P Defender.

I bought one from a member here. It is not the Surefire brand. However, it has different brightness levels, SOS, and a Strobe feature. I have not heard anything negative about this guy or his product from anyone that has purchased one.

I'm sure you can find them online and have them shipped there. Do a google search on LED Replacement for SureFire G2. I would bet there are some available for shipping to you.

I really like all 3 of my lights. You won't go wrong with any of the streamlight's, Fenix. or SureFires. Just be sure and get a lot of batteries if you do not get a rechargeable.
