Hugsby XP-2 review

hey guys i done a video review of hugsby XP-2 it is a great flashlight you can not go wrong for the money.
I do the usual test and compare it with other flashlights around the same size and price.
if i compare this light to a LED lenser it smokes it!
beam shots
underwater test
drop test

feel free to leave feed back.

thank you!

thank you for the review. any chance you could let us know where you bought it? I saw a few neutral to concerning voices from purchases which originated on aliexpress. so I avoided the sellers on that platform.

thanks.

I bought 3 and gifted 2. You can’t be wrong for the money. You are right. I’ll watch the review later and if there is anything that you didnot cover, I’ll let you know but off the top of my head, there is not enought knurling and eneloops are a tight fit Smile
The light has excellent output for its price, the tint is a pleasant cool white and its remarcable thin Smile

edit: Forgot my manners Silly Thanks for the review and great to see new members contributing to reviews!

I guess I’ve been lucky with mine. I’ve probably ordered 55-65 Hugsby XP-1s and 2s from various Tomtop ebay stores. All were the original design with proper clip, OP reflector, tail standing tail cap. Arrived individually boxed. No failures in last 6 months and none reported by those I’ve gifted them to. Have compared them to the original batch as they arrived and the tint and beam pattern have been surprisingly consistent. None of the blue present in the fakes.
Last batch 12-10-15:

Thanks for the video review.
