[Amazon Canada] Amazon Canada Thorfire 18650 900 lumens Flashlight $18.99

900 lumens is undoubtedly marketing bs, but it has the potential to be a decent light

Does not come with a battery!

lowest price ever according to the camels, probably dynamic pricing though

In a room of 100 people... 98 of them will think they are in the top 10% in that room. 2 are in the wrong room.

The product name says "ThorFire 18650 Flashlight, 900 Lumen XML2 Led Light with 5 Modes", just below that , description says "SUPER-BRIGHT:ThorFire C8S light utilize CREE XPG2 led and gives max 900 Lumens", XML2? or XPG2? However, according to the specs from CREE, "Max Light Output (lm) Standard: 586 lm / High Efficacy: 735 lm" ( https://www.cree.com/led-components/pro ... lamp-xp-g2 )
Lol...

Love my thorfire flashlights they are around 1100 lumens. Insane about of light coming out of them.

They are much smaller then this one.


Personally I'd save your money and wait for a better thorfire to go on sale.

Yeah, if it's advertising 900 lumens, it's probably not an XM-L2. There's a review that states that they replaced the emitter with an XP-L HI, which would confirm that it's an XP-G2 assuming you can say with any certainty. If a light doesn't state exactly what tint and efficiency bin you're getting on the emitter (in this case, it's not even clear what kind of emitter it is), do us all a favour and don't reward them with your business.

I have no 18650 batteries or lights. (I do have a charger)

Can someone pls recommend me a nice basic catch all light in 18650? Not this one. It's too big.

Thanks.

I have a Convoy C8 XP-L HI which is quite similar to the light in the OP so it's likely also too big for you. It is very bright though. :) I'm not sure if this one suits your needs but Convoy makes a smaller 18650 light called the Convoy S2+ which seems to get quite good reviews. It's on sale for less than $20 at Bang good where I got my Convoy C8 and you can choose from different light tints. I prefer the 5000-5200K tint myself since it's a bit warmer tint. Not sure if Bang good links are allowed here but search Bang good for the Convoy S2+ Black L2 and you should find it if interested. The BLF A6 light is similar and a nice 18650 light as well but it's more expensive there.

I just disassemble cordless tool battery packs that won't charge anymore. Then just look at each individual cell and find the bad/good ones
