  • great, bright single 18650 10W

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

    Pros:

    *Good build quality
    *very bright (close to as much light as a D bin P7 driven to 2800mAh in a ultrafire wf1200)
    *medium setting out shines a 1000mAh R5
    *thermal conductivity of this light is very good, and you can leave it on high for 7 mins or so before even thinking about turning it off to keep from overheating.
    *low is low enough to be good camping, or in low light situations, maybe 50 lumens?
    *good flood, wider than a P60 light, and decent spot, almost as narrow as a P7 with a 52mm reflector

    Cons:

    *changing modes sucks. In order to change a mode, you have to turn the light on for no more than two seconds before turning it off again. the next time you turn the flashlight on, it will be in the following mode. so if you have it on for a while, then want to change modes, you have to press the clicky switch twice instead of once like most dx lights. this gives it a threefor ease of use
    *color temp is very high, maybe 7000k, border line purple ish.
    *due to the nature of the beast, with the size of this light, and power it's pushing, I wouldn't leave it on high for more than 10 minutes.

    OtherThoughts:

    good design, thermally, aesthetically,

    Bottomline:

    Good light, especially for the money. it is brighter than a P60 P7 by far, and brighter than many cheaper P7 lights.
