Attractive flashlight – TrustFire TR-801 Cree Q5-WC 230-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*18650) Reviews

Pros:
Nice single 18650 cell light. Good fit and finish, looks great, fairly bright but not 230lm I would say.
Cons:
Not 230lm, the coating/finish was a bit over enhusiastic and coated the threads so the torch didn't actually work to start with due to lack of electrical conduction. Had to sand the finish on the threads back to show the metal then all was good.
Other:
Light is a little purple, not overly white, but its a nice torch for the money and apparently you can put one of the new P7 900lumen emitters in it and direct drive it so thats got to be worth it as a host right there if you have some good cooling solution (I plan it as a bike light)
Bottomline:
Definitely get one and see what you think. I'm glad I did.
