Bright and Hot – Brinyte XML-900 CREE XML-T6 5-Mode 6700K 900LM White LED Flashlight (2*18650) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- It flashlight is bright as hell. I am comparing it to a Fenix LD20 and it is really good
- Very sturdy casing.
- seems to be water-resistant. I dropped it into a creek without problems
- Strobe is good for riding a push-bike! You'll be seen.
Cons:
- It does overheat. After about 20 min in the brightest mode (Hi) it shuts down. After some time of cooling you can turn it on again. If you keep it to the 2nd brightest mode (Mid) it stays on (as far as I used it)
- No hole or anything to attach a lanyard
Other:
After dropping it into the creek I had some moisture inside the lens however I think that was condensing inside >> nothing to worry about.
Bottomline:
A very good lamp for that price! The overheating isn't very nice but there is no use in keeping it on Hi all the time anyway. I use it for nightcaching and it seems to be perfect for that one
