Pros:
Dropped it in my older R2 Ultafire host and it worked. Being that I don't yet have a charger for the protected ultafire batteries, I simply solar charged them with no idea of the state of charge, still very bright, the spot is quite a bit wider than the Eastward 900 lumen, But that means better for me, since it is so bright anyways. The spill is slightly wider too.
The bright and fast strobe is pretty cool! The med is, well med, and the low is really cool because it's low enough to be called dim, with no noticeable PWM flicker, even!
Cons:
Make sure the heatsink/pill deal is tightly screwed into the reflector, for obvious reasons. Oh and the annoying SOS, wish I could get rid of it! Should be just as it is high, med, low and strobe.
Other:
I plan on making a solar charger for the 18650's. That way ALL of these cool lights can be solar powered!
Bottomline:
Works...
