Review - GB UltraFire CREE XM-L2 U2 885LM tactical flashlight

Welcome everyone to my first review!

Sorry for my english, I never learned.

I want to introduce UltraFire tactical flashlight models available on the GearBest (external reflink).

Battery Type: 18650

Battery Quantity: 1 x 18650 battery (not included)

This light tactical view. Size slightly larger than s2 +. Battery uses a piece of 18650. It's got beautiful (zombie) green tail switch is GITD.

Water resistance promises ipx6, rubber sealing ring found everywhere.

The lamp uses P60 dropin. This is good because it is possible to swap.

 

Light slightly bluish.

High mode no pwm, middle and low PWM can be seen in the camera.

high    

Unfortunately, there is no mode memory. Always start the next mode.

Measurement results:

  • high - 1,97A
  • mid - 0,96A
  • low - 0,43A

Weight without battery: 106g

Body lenght: 136mm

Maximum diameter: 35mm

Use uncoated glass plate on the head.

The lamp heats up during use, so probably a good heat conductivity.

OP reflector is integrated, so there is no strong hotspot.

Anodizing seems good quality.

Simple EDC tactical lamp think a good choice.

P60 DROPIN because it is easy modding possibilities.

 

Pros:

  • Tactical look
  • P60 dropin
  • Good quality
  • Cheap
  • Looks waterproof
  • Usable without modification

 

Cons:

  • No mode memory
  • Mid and low mode pwm

Conclusion :

It is a good tactical lights! It also looks great, it seems quite good quality. Driver swapped it can be useful for edc flashlight.

Nice review, the light looks good. I reviewed the larger version of this light a few months ago. I think they are both great options on the more budget end of lights.

After unknown00101 wrote another tactical flashlight review, the driver trick I made this flashlight driver.
P60 dropin in it.
I wound reflector and tension spring.

It must be soldered down the driver. Then we have access to the necessary parts.

The two circled component along the line I drew with graphite pencil.

Then I soldered the driver back into p60 dropin pill and came to the test.
Well done! It always starts with the highest mode! Thumbs Up
