1000 lumen LED flashlight with beam focus $10?

Hi guys, my dad just bought a 300 lumen Cree Q5 flashlight from tomtop for $7, and the beam can be focused.

I am looking for a similar flashlight, around 1000 lumens (the inflated china specs, not a true 1000 lumens spec) with a beam focus feature.

I found the Ultrafire 501b, which has a T6 with 1000lumens (obviously is not a true 1000 lumens but its much brighter than a 300) but it doesn’t focus the beam.

Is there any flashlight with the above features and $10 and below (shipping included)?

I ordered a SZOBM Zy-603 recently because of the design and reasonable price – waiting to receive and test.

I’m happy with non-zooming MXDL SA-16 and this looked somewhat similar when I found it. It will probably not have an adequate heat sink like many inexpensive XMLs, but I’m hopeful the threading will transfer heat to the body quickly instead.

True thanks, since I’m new to this stuff, the only “brand” I know is ultrafire, I’m comfortable with them, is this brand a good one as well?

Can’t say since I have not received the light, but I was willing to take a chance based on the other light I think was made by the same supplier.

Ultrafire (like a lot of Chinese “brand”) lights seem to be made in a lot of different places, so the quality varies both by supplier and sometimes from light to light.

Here are some UF reviews that aren’t seller ads:

And here is a list of other FTT lights, but also with little info on most:

Usually that Cree Q5 300 lumen light is a 80 lumen sipiksk68, shown here http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006E0QAFY/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF....
