Oxyled MD20 (1x14500) Quick Review

Hello

OxyLED contacted me about reviewing their MD50,18650 powered flashlight.
After checking their amazon store I found that they produce clones of clones flashlights.
But I thought,it's not good to judge it,without having it in hand.Mybe their products are of a higher quality.
Receiving the package gave me great surprise.I received a smaller, AA/14500 flashlight.
There is not much to write(at least good) about the MD20 model,but I really appreciate the effort of sending me this cheap flashlight by DHL from Oxyled's German amazon store,so I will post something quickly. I like to practice photography.Cool

Can you guess the model from the picture below?
Yes it is a clone of a flashlight,that almost every one here owns.

The model is OxyLED MD20. Comes in a really nice plastic case with a charger and 14500 battery included.

Price 14 USD.

 

 

Yes,it is a SK68 clone.

 

 

The overal quality of the flashlight,which I received is on low level.

The flashlight looks quite used. Actually,any of my most used flashlights look incomparably better.

There are multiple dents,scratches,etc.Frown

 

 

 

Old,Cree XP-E LED.

Lumen output,measured by me.

The head set to flood.

On 14500

~190Lm Hi, 49 Low

On AA NimH

~60Lm High, 16Lm Low

As expected,with a Cree XP-E led,convex lens and reflective retaining ring,the beam is bluish,full of artifacts...

Nothing much to discuss about. Still,in the dark,any light is better than no light.

1200 mAh battery ? Dreams...

Hollow pill design Undecided.Poor heat dissipation design.

Boost driver circuit. Works with AA and 14500 batteries.

0.390Ω sense resistor. Next mode memory...

More details...

Nice review, still cheaper than here which retail costs 30$ or the other online site here which costs 50$!? Shocked
