Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-I think its very bright.
-Can tail stand.
-Good build quality look and feel soild
-Fit well with sku.31871 for bicycle mounting.
Cons:
sku.20392 that I bought with need to be squeezed in. And in fact it damaged the outside sticker of the batt that I need to removed the whole sticker. Now my batt is naked.
The head of the torch get hot very fast. I not sure its good anot.
Other:
Not sure of the batt life
Hope the torch can last my cycling trip without getting overheated.
I got this because I need a headlight for my bike. Did not chose a stronger light as I need longer life, 1400mA Current Output sound good to me to have longer batt life compare to higher one. 510 lumens sounds good enough for me as Singapore is well lighted mostly everywhere.
Bottomline:
Not sure of the heat issues, if not this might be a good buy for this price although can be lower. I chose this WF504B body as its suppose to be more soild as I dont mind it to be more heavy.
Also not sure if most batt will fit better rather than the sku.20392.
