Great bright flashlight – UltraFire C1 XM-LT6 5-Mode 510-Lumen Memory White LED Flashlight with Clip/Strap (1*18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
+ nice C1 body; + nice black finish and true glass lens; + True XML; + black o-rings present, perfectly fitted and lubricated; + true 1400 mA driver NANJG 101-AK-A1, originally has 5 modes, but can be modded to 3-mode (Hi-Mid-Low) with only bulb of solder; + due to LED datasheet, seems like 510 lumens almost true(maybe 400-450 in real life); + almost perfectly aligned modes (~10-40-100%); + wide bright hotspot without artifacts;
Cons:
- bad heat transfer - typical P60 hosts problem; - not perfect tailcap thread; - SOS and strobe modes are useless for me.
Other:
This is very nice torch. Good for modding, and really good for instant use out-of-the-box. Apply some copper\aluminium foil to drop-in, lube threads and o-rings, maybe mod the driver and you will get nearly perfect torch.
Bottomline:
Buy it. For 20 bucks you can't go wrong. Quality\price ratio is very high.
