  • Good throw and excellent heat management

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

    Pros:

    2400mA linear driver gives a good balance between output and battery consumption. Nice GITD O-ring and tail cap. Coffee color looks really nice and sets it apart from many other lights. Good price for a deep reflector XM-L light comparable to a C8 type.

    Cons:

    Driver has no mode memory which is annoying. Threads are rough but improved with lubrication. I used the dampeing grease (sku. 112202). Take care when assembling that the LED pill is threaded all the way in. Otherwise the O-ring at the front won't seal the glass lens.

    OtherThoughts:

    For some reason it doesn't fit the handlebar holder as well as my WF-501B lights.

    Bottomline:

    Upgrade the driver to an 8x7135 item with mode memory and this will be a fantastic light.
