Does anyone own one of these and how is it?
    That UF looks good but be aware...

    I'll probably get a couple of those for starter lights while I do more research


    Too heavy to clip on my ballcap?


    I usually wear a leather Stetson while hiking in the summer but it'll be too floppy for a torch.

    I just rubber banded an MVP to my Bruins cap.
    It's do-able for a minute but that weight would be annoying on the trail.

    The comments on this one say it's 1030 not 1080 as advertised so also V1 not V2

    Thread made me order one too. Just arrived today and I gotta say, I have no complaints. This thing is so far superior to all the AA and AAA "torches" (no comparison) I own. It makes sense that an 18650 would be brighter, but I had no idea of how much brighter.
    For the price, and the fact that I have up to 15 18650's charged at any given moment, this is a perfect light. I may have to get a couple more just for backups.
    I really hope I don't get curious about flashlights in the next price bracket above the Ultrafire. Then I would have to see what the next level was like and so on.
    I think you will be pleased with the performance, for the price.

    Looks like the "collecting bug" has struck!

    Oh boy, getting into flashlights is very dangerous territory if you have an addictive personality. I now have about 6 flashlights for different applications. One for every day carry, one for the car, one for the keychain, a headlamp for work... you get the idea. I almost regret looking into these 'cause I'm well and truly hooked. My only saving grace is they are very affordable at the budget end.
