WARNING!! NOT THE RIGHT MODEL!!
on July 23, 2012
First off, this IS a good light. HOWEVER, THE LIGHT YOU RECIEVE IS NOT, I REPEAT, NOT THE ONE THAT IS DESCRIBED!!
This is not a 3-mode, 900 lumen light. This is a 510 lumen, 5-mode light. After noting that I recieved a 5-mode light when I was expecting a 3-mode light, and although it was brighter than my 280 lumen 4Sevens light, it was nowhere near 900 lumens...I did some digging.
In the reviews, many noted the 5 modes, but made no mention that it was supposed to be 3. Several people correctly noted that it seemed to be 500 lumens. So I went to the Dealextreme website and browsed the Ultrafire models. There is no model that matches the descripton. But I DID find one that matched what I recieved from Amazon, even the price point:
Google "Dealextreme". When you find the site, the listing that matches what you recieve here is: "UltraFire WF-502B XM-LT6 5-Mode 510-Lumen Memory White LED Flashlight with Clip (1*18650)"
THIS is what you get. You WILL NOT get a 900-lumen light with 3 modes for $16. It is likely, Amazon is not aware and this is the fault of the source. I plan to contact Amazon next to make them aware.
THAT BEING SAID....A 500 lumen Ultrafire for $16 is not something to pass on. It's still a good light. And unlike many of the Fenix and 4Sevens lights I own, the strobe isn't too fast...its just the right frequency to REALLY screw somebody up who has ill-intent in the dark.
Just so you know what you are getting.....If it were labeled correctly, I would rate it five stars. But since it is not, I am giving it 2 stars.
