My best – TrustFire TR-801 Cree Q5-WC 5-Mode Memory 230-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*18650) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Very bright, low battery consumption. Very small and handy. Pleasant beam colour.
Sehr hell, klein und handlich. Kein kaltes Licht. Geringer Stromverbrauch
Cons:
Build quality could be better. I had to clean and grease threads and o-rings but now it works fine. Strobe modes.
Gewinde und O-Ringe mußten gereinigt und gefettet werden.
Other:
My MTE torch with a P7 LED is not really brighter but has a much higher current consumption. To get rid of the idiotic Strobe modes I will finally replace the driver.
Meine MTE mit P7 LED ist nicht wirklich heller, hat aber fast den 3-fachen Stromverbrauch. Um die blödsinnigen Strobe Modes los zu werden, werde ich noch die Elektronik tauschen.
Bottomline:
It is my favorite torch.
Ganz klar meine Beste. Dagegen kann man alles von Maglite vergessen.
