Solarforce l600

Hi guys just been looking at this light as it seems a very nice bit of kit and the price looks very tempting, but i don't really want an incan light unless its "VERY" bright.. 

So does anyone know if this light can be upgraded to led it looks as though it has a drop-in of some kind but not too sure.

 

Thanks

Charles

As i know the Solarforce L600 look alike the UltraFire WF-500 but use different bulb. I saw once Ultrafire WF-600 incan that use the same bulb as SF L600. And the G&P 500 is similar too.

I own only the WF-500. I like, that was my first flashlight.

In the WF-500, you can put in several "drop-in". Those 50-52mm dropins all fitt in WF-500.

WF-500 head diameter 55mm. But as i know the L600 head diameter are smaller... 43mm LINK

I read somewhere, that you can screw some P60 pill in the L600....

My WF-500 does 410 lumens dropping fast. The WF600 bulbs give a bit more brightness in the WF-500 but cost more. That figure is with a bulb intended for a WF-600, I think.

 

For comparison, here are some lights that I own that are brighter. The WF-600 might hit 600 lumens but I doubt it.
