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

Pros:
- build quality is decent;
- spill is brighter than with P7/XM-L and throw better than my uf-1500/sst-50, even without driver modding;
- current is close to optimum for XR-E, enough brightness but less heat and longer batteries life;
- it has memory as i prefer.
Cons:
- heat dissipation could be better, you have to add foil etc. for higher currents. at the same time it's enough with stock driver.
Other:
first impression - it's large, large than usual 2x18650 flashlights. tried to mount it on my bike, this is fun. :)
current on tailcap (hi/med/low):
2x18650 - 1.56A / 0.93A / 0.46A
3x18650 - 1.01A / 0.66A / 0.36A
LEDs are driven on ~2W, something close to 700mA so there is 9..10W of total power. enough for me, i have no plans to modify driver for higher current values.
Bottomline:
nice flashlight for my collection. price is adequate.
