ExtremeBeam's New M600 Fusion Gives Users Six Hours of Intense Far-Reaching Light

Today's tactical flashlights often ask users to sacrifice light-casting distance for long-lasting battery life or vice versa, but ExtremeBeam's new M600 Fusion answers the question of, "Why can't you have your cake and eat it too?"

Utilizing a 600 lumen high-output LED and a modified version of the company's SuperLumen reflector cone, the M600 Fusion is capable of projecting a wide-set beam to distances of 330 meters. The precision-engineered reflecting cone is machined from solid bar stock aluminum, which not only allows for optimum light-casting ability, but also heat dispersion that is unmatched by pressed-tin or molded-plastic reflecting cones often found in other flashlights.

Equally as impressive as the M600 Fusion's light casting-ability, is its runtime. The M600 Fusion has a runtime of 6 hours when used in its high setting, 12 hours in medium, 24 hours in low and 10 hours in strobe.

Like most full-size flashlights from ExtremeBeam, the M600 Fusion features a housingmachined from solid bar stock aluminum, double O-ring seals for waterproof protection to 30 feet, and ExtremeBeam's Anti-Recoil system making it weapons mountable up to .50 BMG. This proprietary system works by replacing conventional springs found in the tail cap with a piston that absorbs shock and impact, where as typical springs transfer recoil energy to the batteries – essentially turning them into a battering ram that can cause damage to the fragile circuitry.

The M600 Fusion weighs just 9 ounces with batteries and measures 6.38 inches in length. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty that even covers destruction and has an MSRP of $129.95.
