Well First off. Pictures.


Is this really Q5?


Compare size between AA cell, 3mode3watt and sipik 68 1 mode clone.

Is this LED real q5 cree?


On the brightest setting it is only about 50% of the one mode sipik68 clone. So it is very dim but still very useable as far as flash lights are but its not enough for me. I spent only about 6 us dollars on each light so no big lost. I have no way to test tail cap draw nor out put lumen. Only the Version 1 eye guestimate. sorry.

Nice review, newuser01!  I

Nice review, newuser01!  I like the bubbles in the pics.  The emitter is definitely not made by Cree and appears to be a generic chinese one.

I kinda like the zooming mechanism on this one though...bit different than normal.

Nice pics

Great review and nice pictures too.

Yeah, doesn’t look like any Cree emitters that I know of. The Focusing mechanism seems nice, but also seems to take a large amount of space and the thermal path might not be as nice.

^^^^ What he said. Very interesting implementation of a moving pill design.

Thanks for sharing !

Thank you!

Everyone, Thank you for the kind words.

I kind of felt that constipated feeling when I saw the LED was not what I hoped it should be. But you take your wins with your loses when buying crap on fleabay ? Right.

Any ways, Hopefully they don’t die a early death which I only plans to use Nimh cells.

If you have any questions about these please feel free to ask. I will try my best to answer them.

Regards.

  • A few observations.

  • Not water resistant. (not even close).
  • May be about 35 – 40 lumins (claimed 400?)
  • Mount this shit on a gun? No. You have better luck if you throw this at the intruder!!
  • Working Current: 100-200mA Operate Voltage: 3-9V (what ever dude!!)
  • Runtime: 2-3 hours (more like 30 mins if you are lucky)
  • it is ok use it in rainy days (Yes. You can . Inside that is….)
  • Tried a few minutes with 14500 cell. Is it briter ? no. about same to my version 1.0 eyes.!!
