Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
-Very useable beam. Much more so than my MTE SSC P7.
-Great spill...excellent hot spot for decent throw.
This light weighs nothing. It's nice and lightweight. It seems equally bright on 2x 16340's as it is on a single 18650. The 18650 has much better runtime though. As I mentioned, the beam is very useable. Bright as heck. It's got a tighter hotspot than my P7 light, but more actual volume of light than the Q5's I own.
For biking...it's a little too tight on singletrack. Decent for road riding b/c it has decent throw...but it's just a little too focused for trails.
It just may be the perfect pocket'able light.
I would buy one again...100%
Bottom line...get it. The R5 LED is the single most impressive emitter that I've owned. More impressive than the P7 IMO b/c it's a fraction of the size and puts out only "slightly" less actual light.
