Notch above an R2 emitter, and a good quality host – UniqueFire L2 Cree XPG-R5 320-Lumen LED Flashlight - Black (2*16340/1*18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
*10-20% more light output than R2.
*larger spot, more of a "general use" beam
*good threads and overall quality.
*one mode: bright!
*white light, not blue
Cons:
*O-ring on tail cap is undersized and is probably not waterproof as appose to the head o-ring and lens o-ring
*Plastic lens!
*less throw than an R2 (typical with a larger die surface area)
Other:
has a whiter light than each of my R2's. The R2's are more blue/purple ish.
Bottomline:
we got rid of all our maglites on my farm and use these instead. seems to be one of the best values for an 18650 powered 3 watt LED on dealextreme.
