Nice but expensive.... – TrustFire SSC P7 C-BIN 900-Lumen 5-Mode LED Flashlight (1*18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
Nice build quality...threads and anodizing are smooth, o-rings present where needed, clicky was responsive, and threads were lubed.
Bright...not 900 lumens bright but definitely brighter than my R2 or Q5 lights for sure.
Like all SSC's, smooth transition from spot to spill..both are huge.
Fits protected Trustfires with no issues.
Has memory!
Cons:
Contact issues....light will sometimes not turn on, even with a good cleaning.
No real battery rattle but light will change modes when flashlight is moved around...contact issues.
Not much difference between hi, mid, low settings.
Annoying and noticeable flicker on mid and low modes.
Top heavy...the head on this thing is huge!
Other:
Bottomline:
Bright but it really didn't shock me like I was expecting. I was hoping to be stunned by the light but no such luck...it's just nice to have in the collection.
There are way cheaper SSC P7 lights here on DX...this one was pricy. I only got it because I liked the fact that it started on High mode, which is a necessity for my application.
