  • Brightess flashlight ever bought

    posted by emmanhello on 07/09/2012

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    *Extremely bright: almost use max potential of each xm-l t6 led
    *Small compared to a long 2x or 3x 18650 flashlight
    *Awesome quality build
    *I estimate 1800-2500 lumen output
    *look cool

    Cons:

    *Become hot after 1-2 min but doesn't go higher than 50C after 5 min
    *If battery doesn't have flat top, it will scratch driver. Inverting an unprotected battery could be extremely dangerous
    *No lube on the threads
    *Hard to disassembly

    OtherThoughts:

    I also tried a 7x xm-l t6 flashlight (SKU: 132489) but this one is a bit brighter.

    Bottomline:

    You want a powerful flashlight? Definitely, buy this one. I tried many, but this one is teh best. It burns skin! Maybe I could bake an egg with it? Ill try!!
