Modlite PLHv2 Light Head now in FDE!

This light head is a direct replacement for the Surefire M600DF head. It can be used with the Modlite 18650 body or the smaller Modlite 18350 body.

While lumen output with this light is similar to the Surefire M600DF, the throw is much better suited to allow PID (Positive ID) at greater distances at more than three times the amount throw than the M600DF. This light is a large step forward from the PLHv1 light. Lumen output is about the same but throw is greatly improved. It is the best balance of flood and throw available.

Dual Fuel Marked Heads: Can be powered by a 18350, 18650 or x2 CR123 We recommend the KeepPower 18650/18350 high drain cells which can be found here. Runtime is about 80 minutes with 18650 and about 40 minutes with the smaller 18350 cells.

Do not stack 18350 cells into an 18650 body this can cause the light to malfunction. Only use 18650 cells in 18650 bodies and 18350 cells in 18350 bodies.

  1. Ruben Ledesma (verified owner)

    Picked up both black and FDE head colors. Both lights are the newer dual fuel heads. I intentionally avoided the multi mode heads and went with the dual fuel version since these are going on rifles. If you’re looking for the multi mode heads you need to go back to search results.

    Gold standard in light heads – potted, robust, very bright. Use thse for both WML and also leveling scopes (projecting reticle out onto plumb line)

  3. Jason Campbell (verified owner)

    Love this for it’s compact size over my 640dft

  4. akintner98 (verified owner)

    Great upgrade over the non-turbo surefire heads.

    After I bought my first PLHv2, I was so impressed, I replaced all my surefire heads with modlite ones. I also highly recommend the okw, Its like having a light saber.
