    Very Good Module

    posted by aekrusty on 05/24/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Rather cheap for a Q5, it works well and gives very good light. Good replacement for a P60 host. Accepts voltage from 3,7 to 18V. Very good build quality. Massive reflector, current driver is well designed. Beam temperature is as written, cold, I think it's...
    Cons:
    The one i got was blinking when I first turned it on, in a 1 sec on/off cycle. I left it on, and within one minute it suddenly ...

    Led q5 da 200 lumen luce bianca ,ordine di 4 bulbi regolari e funzionanti

    posted by Polstato on 02/23/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Sono dei bulbi che emanano un flusso di luce bianca da circa 200 lumen, molto buoni per creare torce assemblate nel mio caso 800 lumen,sarebbe stato maglio un bulbo da 250 lumen,ma erano già esauriti,comunque funzionano.
    Cons:
    Sono dei bulbi da 200 lumen sarebbero migliori se fossero da 250 lumen,comunque funzionano bene

    Cheap, bright, solid!

    posted by Kofko on 09/06/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good build quality. Massive reflector, current driver is well designed. Beam temperature is as written, cold, I think it's about 6000K? Very useful for my bike, I'll work on mounting during winter. Photos'll be available on spring :D
    Cons:
    Undefined poles on bottom side. Outter circle is the minus pole (-) and inner (smaller spring) is the plus pole (+). Beware, it...

    Excellent Replacement, No Stupid Modes

    posted by zerodgz on 04/01/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a mostly direct drop-in replacement for P60 type flashlight lamps. It fits much of the Surefire line including my Surefire G2 and also my Streamlight M3 pistol light. In both cases I had to remove the gold colored spring for proper fitment but the s...
    Cons:
    Removal of the outer spring is necessary to fit this lamp in any flashlight I've tried. Why is the outer spring there? I don't ...

    Excellent product with one important catch

    posted by JunkMeister on 10/04/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright with a colour temperature about the same as sunlight. No blue, just clean white light. Easy to use and easily adapted to 3 D cell Mag lights.
    Cons:
    CATCH: This is not an 18 volt product. It runs just fine on as low as 3.4 volts to about 6 volts. Go much higher than that and ...

    posted by GordyTheCook on 09/24/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    easy drop in I cut the spring down and it fits my g2 great. build quality is good and if I get board with it I can always convert it to a different led.
    Cons:
    over heats after 15 to 20 minuets. I guess that's why S##@fire converted to aluminum heads on there g2LEDs On the flip I foun...

    An economical improvement to the Surefire 6x line

    posted by zhangrongbin on 05/26/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Extremely bright LED light. Much less fragile than the incandescent bulb. The entire assembly drops right in (after removing the outer spring, which pulls right off) and directly replaces the P60 bulb assembly in my Surefire 6p and 6z lights. Light remai...
    Cons:
    Pretty hard to find something to complain about. Surefire wants $40 for an LED upgrade bulb, and I doubt it could be worth it ...
