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

    Pros:

    + pulls 1A at tailcap with 3 freshly charged 18650

    + many possible combinations of different types of batteries and total lengths

    + good build quality for this price

    + nice throw

    + can tail stand

    Cons:

    - front lens could be thicker

    - to less thermal contact from led pill to housing

    - o rings to small, they are not effective

    OtherThoughts:

    Leds are connected in serial. It pulls 1A at tailcap with 3 fresh charged 18650, that is a input power of 12,6W and a output power of (assumed 80% efficiency) app. 10W and 2W/Led or app. 600-700mA/Led. Compared to Olight M30, this one pruduces more light output. I would gess ist about 900 lumen. Olight M30 is rated to 700 lumens.

    Bottomline:

    For that price go for it! Should be better than the old one and not much worse than 5xR2 module i gess.
