Great flashlight for throw and flood – UltraFire WF-1000L Cree MC-E (BIN K-WC) 2-Mode LED Flashlight (2*18650/4*CR123A) Reviews

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

Pros:
- good quality - strong throw, 100-150m - strong flood in the same time - 2 perfect modes - fits nicely in hand
Cons:
- LED is too yellow for my taste - clicker must cycle 100%-50%-OFF every time - spot could/should be smaller, on 50m it is like 4m in diameter and that is why this lamp cannot throw over 100m
Other:
I have bought it to replace my convex lens flashlight with Q5 on 3xAAA batteries. This one shines on 50% like that Q5 on max, 100% on this one is not even comparable. But I love smaller spot because when I mount it on a rifle then I need smaller and stronger spot.
Bottomline:
It is a great flashlight, it makes a day from night. Only thing that bothers me is the LED color, it is yellowish and I prefer blueish color because those look stronger when pointed on an object. I dont know if there is a stronger one for this price. If there is I want to know because around 30$ is my max that I want to spend on a flashlight. Also I dont know if I can change emitter and clicker if needed and which one to use from DX.
