I see you got a good MC-E - it seems to be putting out a lot of light

 

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

Heaps of light Laughing fixed the donut by getting rid off heaps of thermal glue and having the emitter less deep in the reflector.Still can see the cross abit but nowhere near as bad as it was.

Yes, it is often possible to get rid of the worst of it - only one of my quad die lights is bad enough to show up on my target tree trunk. And to be honest even it doesn't bother me in use.

Its there if I look but at any distance over a metre can't notice. Very impressive for a $20 torch. Will probably stick it in a different body though..

That R5 is weak ! [ at least looks it ]   you should see more than that out of one ...  

 

XR-E R2 [ Surefire 6P  above 

 

 

XP-G R5 [ Solarforce L2 ]  driven by Shinningbeam 1.4A 3 mode driver .. 

 

 

 

And for the heck of it , 2xXP-G R5 @ a little over 2A [ 500L OTF ] [ L2P host ] 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….
