  • Super-bright mid-sized light

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    + Sturdy construction - seems like it could handle a fall or 5

    + Water resistant - all o-rings in place; even at the lens

    + Extremely bright - lights up my already-lit office

    + All modes work properly - including SOS

    + Pre-lubricated - for your pleasure

    + Good flood - plus a hot-spot!

    Cons:

    - Can’t tail-stand - problem with all the 502b’s

    - LED not centered - doesn't seem to affect the beam pattern though

    - P60 drop-in is loose - needs aluminum foil heat-sinking to prevent LED damage

    - Heat-sink plaster used under star instead of grease - makes it harder to add heat-sink grease or even adjust the LED’s position

    OtherThoughts:

    Buy some 7135 chips and, after heat-sinking it properly, run this at 2,800ma (max for the LED)!

    Bottomline:

    Buy this if you need a hand-held flooder with a nice hot-spot!
