Hmm. How to keep this short. Yes, most of them have lower hour life, this is due to the fact that they are mostly tactical lights which are designed for short bursts of pure clean white light not yellow colored with dark spots mixed in. They aren't necessarily made to turn on high and left on but the light beam is so much better than say a Mag light that you don't need to turn it on high and leave it. Thats also why most of them have multiple output levels.

Not sure about a 6 cell Mag or most common in price range but I can find out pretty easy and let you know.

As a side note surefire has a new sister company called ICON that are fairly small and alot more affordable not nearly as bullet proof but.....

Right now the hot one is the LX2. It's 2 stage 200 lumens on high and 15 lumens low.

More info on the Titan: Another reason for it's price is it a true a variable output light 0 to 70 lumens and everything in between. Look on the bright side when the original Titan T1 not T1A came out it was $500.00. It had a true titanium casing and a real crystal lens.
