Small with nice beam – UltraFire WF-501B XM-LT6 5-Mode 510-Lumen Memory White LED Flashlight with Strap (1*18650) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Nice balance of flood and throw
No center hot spot - nice beam
Compact
Great output for size
O-rings everywhere they should be
Cons:
Threads on tailcap fussy
Heatsinking marginal
Memory doesn't always work
Strobe and SOS
Other:
A P-60 is a little short on heatsinking for an XM-L. I wrapped a strip of aluminum flashing with heatsink compound around the base of the reflector and pill, which caused the body to warm up faster. Better the body than the emitter. Sometimes the memory hasn't kicked in after 20 or 30 seconds. I would prefer a 3 mode, but some folks like the strobe. Never heard of anyone using the SOS.
Bottomline:
It is a great little all round light that fits easily in your jeans pockets. The beam is perfect for a general purpose light. And the light output is downright impressive for such a small light.
