    Impressive Thrower

    posted by ariesarietis on 10/04/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very tight Beam! I also had the oportunity to compare it with the SKU 18844 UltraFire UF-007 and I would say they are absolutly the SAME bright and tight beamed. (I'll post pictures) Good construction and light for a 18650 powered.
    Cons:
    The 3-Mode! If you take less than 20sec in on-off-on it will change mode. Very anoing if you are using it as a tactical light....

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

    Pros:
    Update to previous review- The light output was pretty low when I wrote my previous review, since then I bought some new batteries from DX (sku.20392) to replace the very cheap UltraFire ones I had and found that with the new batteries the torch is quite a...
    Cons:
    Same as before, except it is a better thrower and light with the new batteries. Still not near 230 lumens though.
