Review: Solarforce L2T
The Solarforce L2T , the latest version in the L2 series offered by Solarforce . The L2 series has gained a following among-st flashaholics seeking value for money hosts , either for custom , self built or 3rd party P60 drop ins , allowing for semi custom lights to be assembled that better meet user requirements .
And the latest is the L2T , it is fully compatible with the other hosts in the L2 series and swapping parts should not be a problem , I was able to replace the bezel , tailcap , and head with those from a stock L2 , making the L2T fully LEGO compatible [ LEGO = Parts interchange allowing for customizing the host ]
Pictured L2T body with stock L2 head and tailcap .
L2T with stainless steel L2 bezel .
One of the greatest selling points of the L2 series has to be the LEGO-ability of the lights , allowing people to customize there lights to make them more personal , one should never under estimate the need of people to customize .
L2T as it arrived .. Perhaps a little lightly packaged , but came relatively quickly - not waiting to long is nice .
Very well machined threads .
Left to Right = Stock L2 with SS bezel , L2P and then the L2T
The finish on the L2T is very mat , and it feels almost dry to the touch , and that seems to offer just a little bit more of a secure feel , as the stock L2 and even the L2P are more slick [ slippery feeling - if I can say that ] , this mat finish just feels warm and secure . The knurling and surface finish are just great , and the anodizing is just so well done , and the internal machining is really good as are the threads . The O rings are nice and tight giving one confidence to get this light wet , and thanks to the O rings , the tailcap and head screw on ever so smoothly and the light locks up drum tight .
The L2T tailcap continues to impress , the clicky is very mechanical and firm [ I like it ] and is of the forward clicky configuration , which should help to endear the L2T with all those who demand tactical features in there lights . I did put in a older XR-E single mode drop in to just test the clicky , and it worked really well , there are no glitches of any kind as the switch is clicked on [ some forward clickies have a small glitch that cause mode changes as you go from momentary on to being clicked on ] .
Overall I was very impressed with the L2T , and I'm very much looking forward to building a U2 XM-L drop in for it , should make for a very nice flashlight . Bottom line , for the money paid , this is an excellent P60 host , offering serious value for your money , I can find nothing to fault with this one , and if anything , it has simply impressed me all to heck !
If your looking for a P60 host , I can highly recommend the L2T from Solarforce .
Surface finish is Type-11 - I wasnt sure - but Solarforce has confirmed it .
