  • My best

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

    Pros:

    Very bright, low battery consumption. Very small and handy. Pleasant beam colour.

    Sehr hell, klein und handlich. Kein kaltes Licht. Geringer Stromverbrauch

    Cons:

    Build quality could be better. I had to clean and grease threads and o-rings but now it works fine. Strobe modes.

    Gewinde und O-Ringe mußten gereinigt und gefettet werden.

    OtherThoughts:

    My MTE torch with a P7 LED is not really brighter but has a much higher current consumption. To get rid of the idiotic Strobe modes I will finally replace the driver.

    Meine MTE mit P7 LED ist nicht wirklich heller, hat aber fast den 3-fachen Stromverbrauch. Um die blödsinnigen Strobe Modes los zu werden, werde ich noch die Elektronik tauschen.

    Bottomline:

    It is my favorite torch.

    Ganz klar meine Beste. Dagegen kann man alles von Maglite vergessen.
