BRIGHT RED – Ultrafire WF-501B Philips Luxeon K2 Red LED Flashlight (1*18650/2*CR123A) Reviews

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

Pros:
This light is very well made for under $10 USD.
Its a great host for all the drop-in modules DX carries.
The Red K2 LED is very bright! good enough to walk the dog at midnight.
Cons:
When your batteries get low you get two artifacts in the beam but its not enough to take a star away from the rating.
Could be too bright to maintain your vision at night depending on your surroundings.
When shining on the side of my white truck its almost blinding.
Avoid shining onto white objects if you don't want to be seeing spots before your eyes.
Other:
The beam looks very nice to the unaided eye, but under infrared night vision it has a strange doughnut thing happening.
(Beam Shots coming soon.)
Bottomline:
DX never seems to amaze me with their Extreme Deals. If you are looking for a well made, but cheap host this WF-501 is it.
You can get this light in blue, green, red, & White. so if your replacing the drop-in like I am get a color you like.
