Won a Cree 2500 on Ebay for $3.81 a couple weeks ago
And then bought a charger with a couple batteries to fit it
Installed a battery and played with it.
VERY bright for a single LED flashlight. I didnt charge the first
battery..simply stuck it in the flashlight, good charge though I didnt
measure it with a volt meter. The other battery is on the charger as I
2 powers, high and low..and a strobe as the third choice. Bright
enough strobe to disorient both of the roommates. A big plus
Construction is solid, has some heft to it and the ergonomics is very
good. ENough flat spots on it so it wont roll, though if its on a
sharply slanted surface..it will at least, slide.
Light button is almost flush with the body, yet very handy to operate.
There is a second "button" opposite the actual button..probably part
of the switch, a few seconds and I figured out by touch which is
which..no issues there whatsoever. They feel different in the dark so
you wont be hitting the wrong one over and over again..
Has a "clip" on the ass end..and it is "adequate"..but its not
something Id use to hook to gear in a serious high speed movement. It
may..may come off or bend. I may wind up adding a little JB Weld dabs
and glue the pocket clip on..though it is solid enough for most duty.
In fact...I may simply drill a diagnol hole through the end of the
flashlight and install a ring and hang it from a lanyard, or I may
take a bit of leather and make a flashlight holder to go on my belt.
I got it in a reddish maroon color, but there are others available.
It makes a decent pocket flashlight for utility duty..its about 4"
long and about 1 3/6 at the biggest with the body being about 1" in
diameter. Machined with longitudinal grooves in it for grip.
Nothing fancy, nothing spectacular...just a decent and very handy
flashlight for well under $10, and it includes 2 rechargable batteries
and a 110vt charger.
