SMO Thrower, Superbright Brand – Cree R2-WC 250-Lumen 5-Mode Memory Drop-in LED Module for Flashlights (3.6V~8.4V) Reviews

Pros:
Mine comes with an almost SMO reflector that throws a lot further than sku 11074. A good thrower but comes with the price of artifacts AKA ringy. But hey, I love tight spots than floody beams. Also, this drop-in is now a Superbright brand, and not Solarforce anymore. However, I am still okay with it. Fits perfectly with my Surefire 6P, of course with the outer springs removed. Price used to be $12.90. Measures a little over 1A over a freshly charged 18650 batteries. Compared to sku 11074, the beam is whiter and I think, brighter whick made me decide that from now on, I will prefer R2 than Q5.
Cons:
Ringy beam.
Other:
I like it eventhough with ringy a beam.
Bottomline:
If you have a P60 host, this is one drop-in to consider.
