Pros:
I have never seen more light comming out a Ultrafire WF 501 b than with this emitter. The throw is a little less than with a 350lumen type 5 but that should not be considered as a cons. The beam is bigger but as powerfull as the type 5 When the beamdivergence would be the same as with r2 it ligthts should light out about a kilometer and would dazzle all people who look even at far distance in the beam of this flashlight.
Cons:
None
Other:
Should be handled with care, the emitter is in my opinion the same as the 1000 lumen 3 A emitter limited to a more or less safe 1500mA. That makes it possible to mod it to 3000mA but in that case you almost should have a weapenlicense to care this kind of flashlight with you because the brightness is comparable with a laser when you look at short distance right into te beam at full power.
Bottomline:
With 3000mA 18650 cells you have the full amount of light for about 2 hours. The flashlight istselve does not become very hot , the emitter has a lot of overcapacity. For flashlight adicted people this is a must have. For normal people this is a flashlight you should keep under close adult supervision.
