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.
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.
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.
