  • Not 900 lumens

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

    Pros:

    - bright

    - usable Lo mode; I use the Lo mode indoors as it is bright enough for most things

    - standard WF-501B host (a bit thinner and lighter than WF-502B, but still quite okay)

    Cons:

    - definitely much much less than 900 lumens

    - no memory; it either stays on Hi or cycles through the next mode until Hi

    OtherThoughts:

    - big flooder

    - as there are four emitters cramped into one, there is actually a dark spot in the middle instead of a hot spot

    - similar light output to cheapest XM-LT6 flashlight, although with bigger flood and much larger power consumption

    - haven't really used it for long periods, but I haven't really felt it was overheating as others have reported

    Bottomline:

    - I got this in a 50% off promotion, so it was definitely worth it; however, for a full price, you can get a full XM-LT6 flashlight, which is at least as bright with a much lower (about 45%) current consumption
