  • Cheapest dropin with much output.

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

    Pros:

    One of the cheapes drop-in with high luminous output and good throw.
    No real heatproblems, uses te best Cree chip wich is reliable and has uniformity in color.
    Can be powerd with (only) one 18650.
    Reflector is effective and of good quality (massive aluminium and gives the led extra heat dissipation.

    Cons:

    The claimed output is exaggerated, my estimated guess should be 500-600 lumens

    OtherThoughts:

    By turning the reflector about one winding, the trow becomes better and the spot smaller.
    A drop of cyanoacrylateglue (10 second-glue)
    can fixate that situation and gives no troubles.

    That the drop in does not give full trottle can be an advantage, it saves runtime and probibits short life by overheating.

    Also with this power the efficiency is about optimal.
    The gap between full power and low is very big.
    Cover the flashlight with your hand if you want to turn low, otherwise the full power wll blind you for some time.

    Bottomline:

    cheap but best buy.
    value for money, high estimated lifetime.
    Very high efficiency, compared to other drop ins.
