Bright, lots of modes, but no memory. – UltraFire WF-501B MC-E (BIN M) 5-Mode 800-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*18650) Reviews

Pros:
Well the number if modes being a pro or con varies from person to person. The SOS is pretty dumb but could come in handy when I'm out on a hunting trip or something. Its got a fast strobe. Seems about as bright as my WF-501B SSC-P7-CSXO 3-Mode 900-Lumen (sku.36356), although that one had a slower strobe.
Cons:
No Memory. Maybe too many modes. All I want is high, low, and a reasonably fast strobe.
Other:
All together its a decent flashlight. Take away the medium or low, and the SOS mode and maybe give it memory and I'd love it.
Bottomline:
Take away the SOS and Low mode, give it memory and you have a great flashlight. As it stands this is still a great light for the money. Very bright and the strobe is debilitating in a low-zero light environment.
