Great budget incandescent light – Super Fire 14V Wf501D CR123A With Gun Mount Reviews

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

Pros:
-Good build quality
-Assault corona
-Comes with nice solid mount for 20mm rail
-Comes with pressure switch as well as with a tailcap for on/off action
-Takes 4 * 123A batteries for max power output.
-Really bright high pressure xenon bulb!
-Good reflector with nice spill vs throw combo.
-Good for blinding fellow airsofters in night skirmishes!
Cons:
-The o rings get damaged after few times of screwing tailcap on and off because they tend to get caught between the threads.
-A piece of isolation was missing from the pressure switch cable. So I could see few millimeters of exposed cables. Nothing little tape wouldnt fix.
-Unprotected batteries tend to jump around the flashlight if you shake it violently.. not really a tight fit sideways.
Other:
Light is really bright and quite compact for the light output it produces. At least with 4 * 123a batteries. Its cheap, fits nicely on your guns rail and you can use it while camping by changing the end cap.
Bottomline:
Overall I am very pleased with the light, and if I get frustrated from it draining power too quickly (bout 0.5h continuous runtime) I can simply order a drop-in cree module and swap em for longer runtime!
