Ultrafire

Some nice Ultrafire flashlights here:

Btw, I ordered RL-198 almost a month ago from eBay, should arrive in next few days. Looks very nice, obviously inspired with Jetbeam. Will post impression as soon as I got it.

I'd be surprised if the light output is true though - at a guess 160-180 is more probable going by my RL-118. If it were stainless steel, I'd be on it straight away. Thanks for the link to a store I'd not seen before.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

If I wouldn't be satisfied with Osram, there is always some R2 and R5 lying around Smile

But I'm very happy with the RL-118n the way it is. DX claim 160 lumens for it and I'm assuming the driver and LED are the same. The Ultrafire shop says 220 lumens for the RL-118 too. According to my lightbox, the RL-118 is putting out 1080 lux on high which is, very roughly, 240 lumens which I find hard to believe so will try recalibrating my lightbox against the Preon 2 which produces a measured 160 lumens on high.

 

So it may actually do 220 lumens...

I agree never seen that site before......They sure do look like Jetbeams, but without the pricetag.  Let us know when you get it and what your thoughts are.

Osram's are led's right?  If so, what's wrong with an 'Osram'?  Inquiring minds wanna know.

Yes it is an led......yes i know it is.....but for me i would rather have a Q5 or R2.  Osrams have a good beam profile but coupled with a smooth reflector is something that i would like to see first.
