Hi everyone, I just received mu first Gladius and I have a question about batteries. The instructions tell me only to use Night-Ops, Panasonic or Duracell batteries. Is there a problem using Surefire or the batteries from Pentagonlight? Thanks....Mike

The Gladius has a built in circuit that automatically makes the light shock you with 35,000 volts if you put SureFire batteries in it...

Seriously, the point is use high-quality batteries.

I am confident that SureFire batteries are up to speed. Pentagon, I have no idea.

Cheaper, off-shore chinese batteries will make your flashlight go boom...literally.
There can be fire and flying missile hazards as well.

Thanks. I love this light. I am a police officer in CA. This is going to be my main light for work. Ken, thanks again for being there when you are needed.... Mike

Anyone know who sells the brand name "Night-Ops" batteries for the Gladius? Thanks....Mike

You can buy better batteries than Surefire for less money. Read this thread.

We have not released batteries yet.

Mike, Thanx & let me know how the light works out for you.
If you feel so inclined, email me at ken@night-ops.com after you use the thing for a while.

Always looking for operation feedback from people doing the job.
