  • Very bright light, nicely built!

    Pros:

    This light has the build quality that I've come to expect from the WF-504B. I had already ordered several with either XRE-R2 and XPG-R5, this is the first XML-T6.

    Sturdy, nice finish, even lubricated O-rings.

    Very much impressed with the amount of light!

    Cons:

    This light appears to be direct-driven.

    When you have a battery that sags in voltage only a little, you may overdrive even the XML LED.

    With an older grey Trustfire battery, tail cap current is 2,5A, which is OK for the XM-L.

    If you know this, it is not much of a problem.

    OtherThoughts:

    It is wise to wrap the drop-in with extra copper or aluminum tape, so thermal contact between drop-in and body is improved. With an LED outputting so much power, you need all the cooling you can get!

    Bottomline:

    Unbeatable for the price!
