Best Bike Light on DX – TrustFire TR-801 Cree Q5-WC 5-Mode Memory 230-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*18650) Reviews

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

Double springs for both ends of battery (prevents flicker).
Bright with plenty of spill for use as a bike light, but the throw seems pretty decent on high (still a mid-range light though).
Runtime on high is almost 2 hrs (then it drops smoothly to medium brightness after it can't maintain regulation and keeps on going)
Build quality seems excellent.
Strobe is really too fast to use as a bike strobe.
Do we really need SOS on every single light that has more than two modes?
The lanyard is pretty cheap, but I don't use it on the bike anyway.
Medium mode is roughly the brightness of SKU 13095 (the single mode version of this), but build quality is better.
This is the best bike light that DX has. Runtime on the P7s is too short for my rides, but this is bright enough for a good long ride.
