    Decent module with limitations

    posted by account1234 on 09/28/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good price. Cree XP-G emitter. The three modules I own have a very good tint. The low mode is quite low and should provide very good battery life, but I've not tested that.
    Cons:
    These are advertised as 18V modules, but appear to be 6V max. The three I have do not function properly at 9V, but work fine a...

    Not so good

    posted by account1234 on 09/04/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good price for a five mode, XP-G, P60 module. The medium and low modes are very useful for extended battery life. This module uses an efficient driver since it is 18V rated.
    Cons:
    Mine only does three modes: high, strobe and SOS. High mode is very bright and generates a lot of heat. It seems like the dri...

    bright!!!

    posted by despista2 on 05/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is BRIGHT. The spot is as bright (but bigger) than the XR-E R2 drop-in module that comes inside the single mode UltraFire WF-501B, and the spill is a bit brighter. This one does have mode memory. The mid mode is pretty low and the low mode is REALLY lo...
    Cons:
    The fast strobe mode is anything but fast. Just 4.9Hz. The SOS mode is waaaaaay too slow. The whole word lasts 21 seconds!!! Th...

    Nice, bright drop-in

    posted by Hupplehop on 01/03/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a great little upgrade for my standard Wf-501b flashlight, along with other flashlights that take p60 drop-ins. The pros are: 1. It is bright. 2. It's easy to use. 3. It's aluminum. In a world of plastic reflectors, this one's a godsend. 4. It's got...
    Cons:
    The cons are: 1. I expected the strobe mode to be faster. It's acceptable, but certainly not the attention-catching flash that ...

    bright with flaws

    posted by moregothic on 12/18/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - very bright. Can't judge if really 320lm but it outlights even my P7/MC-E lights - memory actually works - decent build quality
    Cons:
    - SOS mode does not work. it blinks 3 times then shines permanently - low mode flickers when driven with 2x 18650 or CR123

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

    Pros:
    Very Bright, brighter than 3xp4's i have. Inbuilt driver circuit does it's job. Good run-times on 4xAA's.
    Cons:
    Does get really hot on High mode, uncomfortable to touch. LED was not soldered to board properly and became extremely dim afte...

    Not bed for it's price

    posted by Leoric2007 on 11/06/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    1) R5 LED means good light power 2) Memory option is very useful when you need this on you bike for example 3) Price is reasonable for complete drop-in module (LED + integrated circuit board + reflector) 4) low heating
    Cons:
    Overall quality. Maybe I was unlucky and my particular copy was of such quality, but poor soldering and dead components in one ...

    Let there be light

    posted by lasermanathome on 08/18/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright lightsource, the brightest small one for sunfirehousing. That it emits about the same as the R2, I have to disagree strongly.That de thow is less in NOT correct, the emitter needs to be turned back for about a half turn and than the throw is as ...
    Cons:
    Have bought 3 in one time, one emitter is out of center but slightly, no real problem.

    Money well spent on this drop in

    posted by warauea on 07/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Standard drop in for P60 host. I have many lights from DX. The main reason I get all these lights just because they are very affordable! I read and did so much research on lights lately just want to find out how far LED technology has gone. After extensive...
    Cons:
    Currently R5 is the most efficient LED available for drop in. That may be the reason this light doesn't heat up or may be the r...

    Best Choice for Bike Lights

    posted by chris2002rock2 on 06/03/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    If you are browsing this drop-in, you know it's the brightest available in its class. After comparing to P7 C and D-bins, this drop-in matches performance at 1A what the P7s throw at 2A. With both lights operating (at the above rates), the area one expects...
    Cons:
    There really are no pitfalls to this SKU. The light pulls 1A at any voltage up to 8.2 (where I ended my tests), and starts to d...
