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

Emitter: Cree XM-L2 U2
Lumens Range: 500-1000Lumens
Luminous Flux: 885LM
Color Temperature: 6500-7500K
Switch Type: Clicky
Location: Tail Cap
Feature: Anti-Roll Rugged Design,Cooling Slot of High Efficiency,Lanyard

Battery Type: 18650
Battery Quantity: 1 × 18650 battery (not included)
Mode: 5(High-Middle-Low-Strobe-SOS)
Waterproof Standard: IPX-6 Standard Waterproof

This light like a tactical prototype. 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 flashlight 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.
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 on the head.
The flashlight heats up during use, so probably a good heat conductivity.
OP reflector is integrated, so there is no strong hotspot.
Anodizing seems good quality.

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.

A full review can be found on my blog. The site has a built-in google translator in the lower left corner of the page.

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
