Good light, great value – Ultrafire WF-501B Philips Luxeon K2 Red LED Flashlight (1*18650/2*CR123A) Reviews

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

Pros:
Pretty bright with no visible artifacts (which a lot of the non-white K2s seem to suffer from in my experience). Build quality is good, except for a few minor scratches on the body and some imperfections in the OP reflector (oh well). Came well lubricated. Solid P60 host which makes this really good value in my book.
Cons:
Slightly protruding clicky.
Other:
Probably too bright to be really useful if preserving your natural night vision is a concern.
Bottomline:
Unless you need a cheap P60 host, this will be a bit of a novelty light for most people. At less than $10, it's hard to find anything wrong with this light.
