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

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Nice & Bright RED, mine definitely takes protected 18650 and cr123a's.
Is quite a flooder, but still shows up animals eyes @ 50 metres, but you have to have the torch near your eye level to really get eyeshine.
Cons:
Gets warm and loses brightness within 1 minute. Sometimes turning the head is needed to get light to go.
Wish it was more of a thrower, I have since added a smooth reflector & aspherical lens and It's good for outlining cats/rabbits @ 50 metres but still gets hot.
Other:
Its great for walking tracks at night, many animals simply cant see the colour and if you stick to shadows & keep quiet it's easy to get within a couple of metres of some animals!
Also great to be able to see the sky above at night..
Bottomline:
It's not a spotlight, but still a good torch to add to the collection.
