Good light, but has some issues with driver – Eastward YJ J01 CREE XM-L T6 3-Mode 900-Lumen White LED Flashlight with Strap (1*18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
Sturdy metal casing Glass lens Has all the rubber seal Very good thrower, but still floods pretty well
Cons:
Couldn't get the "head" unscrewed from the middle piece of pipe. Probably should try using some tool, as seen photos of disassembled torch. Also strobe and mid don't work on fully charged battery, only start working when you use light for about 5-8 minutes.
Other:
As it is my first torch of this class, I'm pretty impressed with the intensity of light, much brighter then anything I had before. Was ready to encounter problems with driver, will have a look at the circuit once manage to unscrew everything.
Bottomline:
Cool torch, will be useful in day-to-day activities, also as a bike light.
