Disappointed – UltraFire WF-501B MC-E (BIN M) 800-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
- cheap
- emmiter assigned well with termal glue
- no problems with broken wires as emmiter is really well attached
- works
Cons:
- emmiter bin seems to be different as I have another mc-e bin M and this is a bit greenish
- draws ONLY 500-600mA at tailcup (failed driver?)
- not so bright without driver change
- a lot of sharp edges and swarfs
Other:
I am disappointed as I have another mc-e with linear driver and that is really bright. Unfortunately this SKU 39360 with current less than 600mA is nothing more that just home torch. You need to change driver to some linear 1.4A to get good output.
Bottomline:
There are much better SKUs for this price, but I guess that this is a lottery. Some gets this SKU with good driver. Anyway I cannot recommend this product.
