Bang for the Buck – UltraFire WF-502B Cree R2-WC 5-Mode Memory 250-Lumen LED Flashlight with Clip (1*18650/2*CR123A) Reviews

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

Pros:
This is definitely a thrower - light is somewhat narrow, enabling it to throw further, but also useable up close. Machining quality is top notch. Clip is pretty sturdy. Pure white light from the R2.
Cons:
The clicky tailswitch rattles. Build quality on the switch is somewhat flimsy. The rubber coating on the switch is also flimsy. There are bits and pieces probably left from the machining, found in the module itself which could cause a short.
Other:
They should probably offer a sturdier replacement tailcap switch for this. Also get rid of the SOS mode, it's useless - too slow. The strobe is nice though.
Bottomline:
For me, this is the best bang for the buck flashlight from DX. I intend to purchase more and highly recommend this.
