Good Thrower - for $17.69

I ordered this light here:

http://www.manafont.com/product_info.php/lumapower-mrv-cree-q5-1mode-memory-led-flashlight-118650-p-5549

just for the heck of it. I thought I might like to fool around with the front-end and try to fit an aspherical lens which I had lying about. Nice surprise. This single-mode Lumapower Q5 is a jolly good thrower. It even out-throws my Jetbeam BC40 by quite a bit. True - the BC40 puts out a LOT more lumens, but in the throw department, the Lumapower wins. Of course I wouldn't compare it with my STL-V2 - that wouldn't be fair Tongue Out but for less than $18 I'm not complaining.

 

Lights out! That's when things get interesting...
