  • Very bright, useless strobe modes

    posted by thefezman on 09/09/2008

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

    Pros:

    This drop-in is very bright (even with 1x18650, although not as bright as you would expect for an R2).

    You get a lot of runtime using the low mode, and it is still very usable in almost all circumstances.

    Cons:

    - Really needs 2 x RCR123s for full brightness in high mode

    - Strobe modes are useless! Quit adding them!

    - Light sometimes comes on to strobe or SOS mode after being off for a while, which is quite annoying to say the least.

    OtherThoughts:

    Is it that hard to make a Hi-Med-Low light with no stupid strobe modes? I'd be Much happier with a 100%-80%-60%-40%-20% light than with Hi-Med-Lo-Strobe-SOS.

    Bottomline:

    If this didn't have strobes, it would be a 5 star drop in for sure.
