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

Pros:
+ pulls 1A at tailcap with 3 freshly charged 18650
+ many possible combinations of different types of batteries and total lengths
+ good build quality for this price
+ nice throw
+ can tail stand
Cons:
- front lens could be thicker
- to less thermal contact from led pill to housing
- o rings to small, they are not effective
Other:
Leds are connected in serial. It pulls 1A at tailcap with 3 fresh charged 18650, that is a input power of 12,6W and a output power of (assumed 80% efficiency) app. 10W and 2W/Led or app. 600-700mA/Led. Compared to Olight M30, this one pruduces more light output. I would gess ist about 900 lumen. Olight M30 is rated to 700 lumens.
Bottomline:
For that price go for it! Should be better than the old one and not much worse than 5xR2 module i gess.
