I would search around the forum for some reviews if i were you.

I don't personally know any of the suggested flashlights but there is a thread going on about the tr-j12 and one of us has recieved it and is goind to be doing a review about it soon.

 

That fandyfire l1 looks sick too! I do wonder if it's 3amps/cell however and i don't like the design very much.. But it could be well heatsinked by the looks of it!

 

First light looks like a beginners light to me. Cheap, simple affordable

Thank you. I alredy have Trustfire Th-t60 its single xml-t6 marked 975 lummen power (1,5 - 1,3 Amps). It's very good light, very good beam, but i need more power. The light will be used at camping, cycling, traveling and so on. size, design doesn't matter. need 3 or 2 18650 batterys power. price under 80 - 90 dollars.
