Ultrafire MCU-C7 R5 $21

Yes I would buy it,  if it was $14.99.  Lets hope the other companies start stocking it.

 

Got the Q5 5Mode version it's great.

I got the Q5 but upgraded myself to XPG.

But this new "official" version has a specific reflector for XPG and the C7 (not C7s) version had user variable power regulation.

Sounds good!

i cant believe that going from a q5 to an r5 is a 10 dollar jump. hardly worth it in my eyes

 

besides the q5 from DX is already super bright for the size.  if that r5 was sold for about 13-15 bux, i would buy them and resell them instead of the q5 version.

 

i just dont think the price is justified.  the q5 led goes for 6 bux, and so does the r5.  the drivers are even the same price (1 amp vs 1.4)  soooooo where is the price differential justified???

 

you can get alot of other r5 flashlights for cheaper!!!!

Not worth it, but supposed the c7's are being made in crappy batches now, so maybe the newer model is still decent.

well the C7s ive been getting are a bit cheaper.

they now have a greener bin, and have a reflector that doesn't screw into the head (like before)

 

 

i have one of the older q5 c7s that is def brighter than the new ones.
