Marvelous flashlight – X2000 Flood-to-Throw Zooming Glass Optics Cree P4-WC LED Flashlight (1*18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
If you're into mountain biking - this is ideal. On its flood setting you get a huge gorgeous artifactless pool of uniform light, no annoying hotspot at all. When you need a bit more throw you simply zoom it out slightly. On full zoom its a proper retina scorcher for terrifying motorists or woodland stalkers. No spill whatsoever
Cons:
Sure the head wobbles very slightly but it doesn't affect it's performance at all. And there were a few grubby finger print marks on the inside of the lens, but its easily taken apart for cleaning.
Other:
With an 2500 mah 18650 this light will retain full power for 2 hours, then at least another 1 hour on about half power.
Bottomline:
I haven't found another light that produces such a perfect pool of light for mountain biking. The zoom function really is a good laugh - espically for Star Wars style light sabre effects in fog!
