    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Price to lumens upgrade for p60 units is amazing esp with cost of savings for cr123 cells . Just a wonderful vaule. My unit is in my beater host and has been dropped countless times with no issues. Very simple to use no issues there
    Cons:
    At the time this was one of the few lower price solutions for upgrades however now there are some other good quaility drop ins ...

    Bright Beast

    posted by fffuuu on 09/03/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very bright, natural cool color of light. I checked the module with 3V to 12 V, quite precisely at 3.6V the output stabilizes - before it is flickering a little. I measured 500mA @ 3,6V Good wide beam - I like that for working in dark places. This is caus...
    Cons:
    I use it in exchange for a xenon module in a "police" lamp, in comparison the aluminum reflector is much thinner - i ...

    Bright cheap drop in

    posted by jhanratt on 01/03/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright for a small drop in module. Fits my surefire 9P like a glove. Much brighter than the expensive LED I ordered from Surefire. Plus Free shipping from DX.
    Cons:
    The first one I received was a dud it ran only a few minutes then quit. The led was soldered on crooked. DX Replaced it free...

    Good product

    posted by platonas on 09/27/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It has a little wider light beam that makes it more useful than the majority of other lights. Compared to my other torches with R2 this is much brighter, more then twice the light output. The beam is wider and give a more useful coverage of bright light ...
    Cons:
    It gets too hot. The current drawn from a single Lithium cell is 2A. That will decrease the autonomy dramatically. On mine I ...

    None I can think of, really.

    Great Product

    posted by Zirges2000 on 05/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent product. Like others have said, its a has more of a flood in its beam. But, I found that exactly what I was looking for. The R2 has just a little too small of a beam for me. This light easily lights us the area out to 75 yards in front of you. ......
    Cons:
    None

    posted by hyperloop on 04/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very well constructed, the reflector is made of metal and can unscrew off the LED pill, the LED is securely epoxied to the heatsink/pill and the entire drop in feels very substantial and heavier than i expected. Dropin comes with 2 springs, had to remove t...
    Cons:
    None that i can see

    Pretty good, but does not beat the R2

    posted by rcoville on 02/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a good, solid drop-in module. I bought it for a 4-cell Ultrafire WF-501D. With 4 - Trustfire 16340 batteries (the protected grey-jacket units) it is bright, like others have reported. There were no length or size issues dropping it in.
    Cons:
    In the past, I have run this torch with a R2 module (11836) and twin Trustfire TR18650 2500 mAh (blue case) batteries. It is br...

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

    Pros:
    great emitter with a good driver. so far. mine is fairly neutral tint for being a high powered cree cool white led. only a small amount of blue tint. very bright, rivals my mce. more throw, obviously
    Cons:
    the taper of the pill is wider than other p60 drop ins and subsequently the lens cap of my g2 nitralon will not screw down comp...
