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

Pros:
*Extremely bright: almost use max potential of each xm-l t6 led *Small compared to a long 2x or 3x 18650 flashlight *Awesome quality build *I estimate 1800-2500 lumen output *look cool
Cons:
*Become hot after 1-2 min but doesn't go higher than 50C after 5 min *If battery doesn't have flat top, it will scratch driver. Inverting an unprotected battery could be extremely dangerous *No lube on the threads *Hard to disassembly
Other:
I also tried a 7x xm-l t6 flashlight (SKU: 132489) but this one is a bit brighter.
Bottomline:
You want a powerful flashlight? Definitely, buy this one. I tried many, but this one is teh best. It burns skin! Maybe I could bake an egg with it? Ill try!!
