UltraFire HD2010: 26650 Powerhouse

 

After swimming in one too many threads of heated debate having little or nothing to do about flashlights, talking about the pure performance of this 26650 cannon is a pleasure.  The HD2010 is a powerful flashlight.  It is the brightest single emitter torch in my (comparatively) modest collection.  An odd thing I do; as I come near pulling the trigger, I try to avoid other reviews on the light I plan to purchase.  It was a complete surprise then, when it measured over five amps at the tail cap.  I honestly had no idea.  Output alone does not a great flashlight make however and my HD2010 is not perfect.  Even so, it is still . . . .

Foyapproved

Bottom line:  The UltraFire HD2010 has easily defined strengths and weaknesses.  It has blinding output and spectacular throw.  Robust construction and effective thermal management means the HD2010 can be used on high until the battery needs a recharge, with no worries.  I turned it on high for one hour and twenty minutes and the exterior never got above 118º.  Except during testing, the HD2010 worked perfectly with no hicups or odd UI behavior  I must also report that my particular HD2010 was not front-line ready, as delivered from Tmart.  Not a single o-ring on the light was thick enough to make significant contact.  The reflector has several small chips/scratches and the light has the overall appearance of having rolled around in someone's RV for a year or so.  I would expect this condition from a used flashlight, purchased from a forum member at a discount.  Not a brand new product costing $42.  When I spend that much (or even less) at Int'l Outdoor or Solarforce, with rare exception, I receive a flawless flashlight.  The other side of it is; your $42 (now $38) gets you one hell of a bright torch.  Its shortcomings are of the easy-to-fix variety and the HD2010's performance is so good, I'm quickly making peace with its few flaws.

 

What I like:

- (very) bright

- throw

- heat management

- pill o-ring

- works with 18650 and 26650 batteries

- straightforward design/aesthetics

What I do not like:

- rubbed off/scratched anodization, not a new light  (looks like it was sold, returned and sold again)

- reflector scratches/imperfections

- inadequate o-rings, throughout

- emitter slightly off-center

Please forgive these less than ideal pictures.  It's been 105º to 109º every day for the last few weeks and Foy's mood sours at the prospect of a 90 minute heat soak/photography session.

The HD2010 is a familiar UltraFire design with low-cut knurling on the body and tail cap.  The head is quite thick with two smaller cooling rings cut at the bottom and two larger fins further up, the lower one of these being smaller . . . .

With the screw-in pill, this good chunk of aluminum seems to wick away five amps of heat quite well . . . .

Like every o-ring supplied with the light, I had to replace this one because it made almost no contact with the head.  Not all lights have an o-ring around the pill so, I do like that.

The pill screws in from the top and with mine at least, I had to snug it down all the way then back it off about a quarter turn to get the centering ring completely against the reflector bottom.  Even with the centering ring by the way, the emitter on mine is slightly off.

Speaking of reflectors; I would certainly expect a few less defects on a brand new flashlight.  That said, using eyes instead of a macro lens, it doesn't look too bad and seems to effect performance not at all.

Turtle is still there.

I doubled up the o-rings on the tube and it feels nice and tight now.  The threads on this torch are just okay.  Nothing special.

The tube can be installed either way . . . .

I replaced the GITD faux pas with a super hip n' trendy blue boot.  The worn off anodization you see is exactly how I received the light.

Beginer Foy: tail cap spring plungers = quality.

Apprentice Foy: tail cap spring plungers reduce spring pressure/current = unnecessary and stupid.

Except on this guy, the cap is actually attached to the spring so, the collar had to go.  The collar held the spring probably about a half inch lower.  I guess a plunger might be a good idea if they were longer and/or installed so that spring travel is not affected.  Until then, Foyprotocol demands their dismissal.

Some quality issues that bother me . . . .

It's hard for me to believe this light was not previously owned.  If those aren't tweezer/tool marks, Foy has a slim stomach . . . .

What bothers me most is this too-much-like-paint flaking around the edge.  A brand new $42 flashlight . . . .

 . . . . otherwise, machine work is pretty good . . . .

All the parts apart.

Okay; I'm done dissing this light.  He's actually a handsome fellow . . . .

Whitewall with the HD2010 on the left and M8 on the right.  The M8's "hybrid" reflector is evident and both lights have a greenish corona.

Here's what Foy loves about the HD2010; it redeems itself when you turn it on.

All shots were taken with a 1/4 second shutter speed @f2.7, the damn street lamp was on and there was a full moon.

Solarforce M8 with 2 x unprotected Panasonic 18650.

Ultrafire HD2010 with one unprotected King Kong 26650. (XSL)

I love comparisons like this.  No debating over "does that twig have less of a shadow . . .?" even with my bad aim.  A respected, high performance thrower (the M8) that costs $75 gets its booty bounced by a $42 UltraFire.  They throw almost the same, the difference is; the HD2010 has more to throw.

It's hard not to like a torch this bright that throws like a wing light on a 747.  I also can't imagine anyone buying an HD2010 and not liking it.  A lot.

Damn, Foy! Another light where my example was flawless and yours looks ridden hard before sold to you. Sad

Glad you still like it though. Smile

Nicereviewfoy Too bad all

Nicereviewfoy Laughing out loud
Too bad all those scratches, mate Sad Ask kreisler to speak with Tmart, I’m sure he will manage a good gift card for you Big smile
A few questions for you tho:
- PWM?
- Current/throw with 18650? (i.e. 18650<26650 or same brightness)
- DD on high? What driver does it use?
- Tint?

Thanks Smile

Nice review. I have the

Nice review.
I have the FandyFire version.
Mine too came with a off centered emitter.
Perhaps what I did can help you out.
When I took off the bezel I noticed the reflector had some side to side play.
I put it back together and tightened it loosely.
Turned the light to it’s side and tapped it from the top which made the reflector slowly vibrate down until it was centered.
Then I fully tightened the bezel and it’s been good ever since.
Hope this helps

Sashi - I really need to make

Sashi -

I really need to make a list so I don't forget this stuff.  I had it all in my notes . . . . will add to review.

Okay, PWM seems nearly non-existent; only on low can I see any interuptions on my camera.  To the eye, mine has no PWM.

Current draw with a protected Solarforce 18650/2400 on high was 4.25 to 4.60 amps and there was no discernible difference in output.

I'm almost certain it is direct drive on high, based on how it floats when testing current.

Not sure about the driver but here's a whitewall with the M8 . . . .

HD2010 on the left and M8 on the right.

You can see the effects of the M8's hybrid reflector.  Both lights exibit a slightly green corona.  Everything about the beam profile on the HD2010 is well defined.  It has a center spot with a sharp transition to corona that fades quickly to spill.

Foy – Thanks for this review.

Foy – Thanks for this review. This one is in my cart and im about to put it on DHL. Wasn’t sure about the numbers and performance has gotta be impressive. With all the multi-emitters o/p ridiculousness lumens this must be a special light

Nice review Foy… Watch out

Nice review Foy… Watch out for further dings and scratches. The anodize finish is fragile on this light and the cast aluminum surfaces are soft and ding/dent easily.

Mine behaved the same way when I tried to measure tailcap currents. It would only cycle back and forth between HI and disco.

Nicest hidden feature about this light is that it comes on HI every time after being left off for 3-4 econds. So you can bypass SOS and disco, go straight from LO to HI with a 3-4 second soft press.

Another top notch review from

Another top notch review from Foy. Thanks. Have I sucked up enough to ask questions now? I have the Tangsfire so am interested in any differences between the two.

The driver possibly for a start. I had the same issue doing tailcap measurements but the non flashy mode that I could measure was 2.7 amps also with a King Kong. I dont know if this is high or medium.

All orings were to small as were yours.

The finish was near perfect on all parts except the thread where the bezel scews on was missing anodising in places.

The tailcap switch on the Tangsfire in my book is horrible. It is very heavy in action and feels like it is very harsh when pushing it in if that makes any sense. It feels like it needs a bit of grease in it but then that would not solve the problem of the heavy spring. How does yours compare to the switch in the JM05?

Nice review and pics, Foy.

Nice review and pics, Foy. Nice to see the comparison to the M8. I have both and agree the HD2010 is the winner by a bit. Have you had any issues with the reflector shorting on the LED wires? Mine also can have the LED off center but as mentioned above, careful placement of the somewhat loose reflector cures that. Bottom line, this light has flaws but it really performs.

Could you please take a tailcap reading again after a couple weeks of general use? I am curious if after a while your tailcap reading will inexplicably drop below 4A no matter what you try, like it did to some of us here...

Hey taz… I just thought of it this morning, I wonder if your springs have annealed and softened from the current flow? So perhaps now they have compressed to the 650 battery length and you are loosing contact force between the springs and battery??

I had this happen to my TR-J12 only it was very obvious… the smell and cell rattle gave it away immediately after a ~20 minute (HOT) run.

The TR-J12 draws upwards of 5-7A at its peak, when Vin drops. Thats not too far off from the peak ~5.5A I was getting from my HD2010 when I had the stock driver in there, and the springs were pressed completely flat.

Whereas when I took a reading the first time, I was afraid to press down because reading started at 4,2A and when it went to 5,2A I stopped,thinking I would damage the emitter somehow, now I start at 2,6A and pressing on the battery until it compresses the spring to the max possible, I get about 3,9A... could this be caused by the spring? Can somehow a driver stop performing to the max? If it was a driver that had multi AMCs I would think that maybe one or more are not functioning, but this driver doesn't have many chips on it... and I really wish there was a compatible driver that would give 5A max to swap this one out... it's a really great light, and knowing that normally it easily goes to 5A, doing 3,5A now is a bit annoying...  The thing also is that in the other HD2010 related threads, there are other owners I think who cannot do over 3A...

Thanks for the info, Foy.

Thanks for the info, Foy. Much appreciated Wink
As for tint… cameras can actually adjust some things and tint could look different on pic. Does your pics are close to real life/your eye-meter? Smile
To make a good comparison of hotspots and such, I think a pic with lower exposure shows those differences better Smile
Hm, strange, but looking at those pic you’ve made, HD2010 has brighter spill to me outside, but inside, M8 has better spill Stare
Good to know that you can run it with 18650 without loosing much current/brightness Tongue

Very interesting. Have you bought yours @DD? They sells it for 34 without any coupons Tongue Add a 10%coupon, add some points and you will get best bung for the buck. Or not? Can you see PWM on yours? Thanks in advance Smile

MRsDNF - I haven't seen the

MRsDNF -

I haven't seen the Tangsfire so, not sure what the differences are but because you had the same thing happen during testing that I did, would seen the driver might be the same.  You are right about the switch, although I'm probably less bothered by it than you.  I didn't really notice until you asked but the switch on the JM05 is very crisp and feels positive.  The HD2010 is mushy by comparison but it might be because the JM05 uses a 14mm boot and the HD2010 is 16mm.  Honestly, though, I don't think it's the boot.

 

BetweenRides -

I see what you're talking about but mine hasn't done it.  (yet)

 

Taz -

I will do that but I must remind that I've had this light since 6-8-12.  I hesitate to say this but if anything, my HD2010 actually measures a few points higher now than it did 3 weeks ago.  I think it's because I removed the collar that held the spring cap down.  The spring now presses slightly harder on the battery.

When I first got the light, my Extech measured a high of 5.0 amps that settled to 4.40-4.50.  Today on my new Sinometer with a King Kong fresh off the charger, it begins at 5.40 and settles to 4.80-5.0 amps.  I have experienced no current drop at all.  If anything, it's higher now.

Sashi -

I had my camera on manual but the white balance was on auto.  Usually, the best anybody can do is put up something to compare to and not something someone could expect to see themselves.

I have had a half dozen of

I have had a half dozen of these come in for driver swaps and all of them had marks on the ano and also on the reflector. I finally got a perfect one it’s the first black one I have seen and my first order from Lightmalls for $38.90. I don’t know if the defects are limited to the gray ones or if Lightmalls has a different supplier. I can say I really like this light and finally getting one with no defects is nice.
