My Favorite Torch – C6 DIY Cree LED Flashlight Full Casing/Shell with Driver Pill (2*CR123A/1*18650) Reviews

Pros:
Smallest host I know for a 18650 battery. It fits better in my hand than its' brother Aurora DIY host Sku#15687. It has nice knurling that will secure it firmly in your hand. Q5 emitter Sku#11023 and Driver Sku#7612 are perfect for this host. It was shipped to me without defects or blemish. I also replaced the rubber tail cap with a green GITD available here in DX. Semi-smooth reflector provides a balanced flood and throw. It is the perfect size for me.
Cons:
None
Other:
My family loves to go camping. It gives me the opportunity to play with my torch collection in the woods at night, especially when it is pitch black. I just can't take my finger off the trigger. My wife thinks I am crazy having so much of them.
Bottomline:
If DX sells an R2 emitter that will fit this host, it will give me a reason to assemble one torch using this host again. I really like it very much it has now become my favorite. It is the perfect size for me.
