The SureFire ARC 2-BATT-8C rechargeable lithium ion battery handle fits the SureFire ARC2 head assembly; together they comprise the ARC2-8C handheld searchlight/spotlight.
The ARC2-BATT-8C battery handle can power the ARC2-8C handheld searchlight/spotlight for 80 minutes; an optional 120-minute version is available that adds only 3 inches to the ARC2-BATT-8C's overall length. A 90% discharged ARC2-BATT-8C battery handle can typically be brought up to 80% capacity in about 90 minutes. An LED indicator lets you instantly see the approximate battery charge level -- green for 100% to 70% charge, yellow for 70% to 30% charge, and red for 10% charge or less Due to advanced Lithium-ion technology, the ARC2-BATT-8C provides the ARC2-8C handheld light with constant light output until the battery handle is discharged; there is no gradual output decrease as battery charge decreases.
The ARC2-BATT-8C battery handle has a socket on the tail end that allows using an optional cable to plug it into a vehicle accessory outlet, (“cigarette lighter” socket) supplying from 11 to 32 VDC.
Also available is an AC-to-DC plug-in power supply/battery charger with integral cable; this unit simultaneously powers a complete ARC2-8C handheld light while simultaneously recharging the ARC2-BATT-8C battery handle. Works with international power systems.
Power supply cables with remote switches are available.
Built to withstand combat conditions, the ARC2-BATT-8C battery handle has a sealed body constructed from high-strength aerospace aluminum finished in Mil-Spec Type III hard anodizing, and it is waterproof to 1 meter depth when attached to the ARC2 head assembly.
