  • Comparison review with UltraFire WF-501MC-E BIN M

    posted by Happyguy on 06/25/2010

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

    Pros:

    Welcome to my comparison review of this Flashlight against the DX UltraFire WF-501B MC-E (BIN M) (SKU: 39359)

    Pros:

    - Real P7

    - Cheap

    - Does not overheat quickly

    - Modes are fine

    Cons:

    Cons:

    - Real P7 but driver isn't good (resp. effective)

    - WF-501 flashlight body is cheap

    - Tailcap is hard to press - modes are difficult to use for new users

    OtherThoughts:

    Please refer to the pictures I have uploaded.

    Picture Comparison I: Flashlightbody of P7 is shiny and MC-E is beamless

    Picture Comparison II: Dropins (MC-E Dropin has no label sticker)

    Picture Comparison III: Emitters (P7 is cloudy, MC-E dies are larger)

    Picture Comparison IV: Hi-modes of both flashlights. P7 left with 1.04A and MC-E right with 1.87A

    Picture Comparison V: P7 left with Low and 0.2A and MC-E right with Mid and 0.67A

    Picture Comparison VI: P7 left with Low and 0.2A and MC-E right with Low and 0.08A

    All measurements with 2 identical unprotected 18650 with 2200mAh fully charged at 4.2V

    Bottomline:

    Well I would prefer the MC-E over the P7.

    The driver could surely give more Ampere to the P7 emitter but I guess for this flashlight body it's not recommended.
