Good throw and excellent heat management – UltraFire C7 Cree XM-L T6 800lm 5-Mode Crown Head White Flashlight - Deep Coffee (1 x 18650) Reviews

Pros:
2400mA linear driver gives a good balance between output and battery consumption. Nice GITD O-ring and tail cap. Coffee color looks really nice and sets it apart from many other lights. Good price for a deep reflector XM-L light comparable to a C8 type.
Cons:
Driver has no mode memory which is annoying. Threads are rough but improved with lubrication. I used the dampeing grease (sku. 112202). Take care when assembling that the LED pill is threaded all the way in. Otherwise the O-ring at the front won't seal the glass lens.
Other:
For some reason it doesn't fit the handlebar holder as well as my WF-501B lights.
Bottomline:
Upgrade the driver to an 8x7135 item with mode memory and this will be a fantastic light.
