    Default UltraFire CREE C2

    My orders just missed the release of the UF Cree lights!

    Dae just introduced a bunch of K2 stuff into QualityChinaGoods and Szwholesale and then today this release:
    http://www.qualitychinagoods.com/ult...ted-p-541.html

    Does anyone have any output information?

    It sure looks like a Cree with the apparent ring around the emitter. I have requested LUX readings from QCG, at least they will be comparable, principle of realativity, to the other models they have listed.

    EDIT:
    I got a reply before anyone else posted here>
    1800 LUX at 1 meter. Rather disappointing. I expected better from the Cree
    That idicates many of the other models, especially the one called 18w at 2000 LUX are brighter.
    I have tested the 18w and it beats the other models and our old friend the Golston.
    That tight beam of the Cree must be difficult to harness effectively?

    Hotspot in beamshot looks to be relatively wide, and it has a stippled reflector so maybe the extra Cree output is spread around the beam instead of all in the hotspot. Wouldn't be disappointed quite yet (also depends on run time)

Argh...too much stuff I like...I'm getting overwhelmed again. Uh oh...may just go back to knives for a while till lights settle down...I can't afford to buy everything!

    That looks like a Wolf Eyes body with the wider reflector, is it?

    If it is, it would be cool since we can then use Wolf Eyes incan modules.

    low lux just show that there is no thight spot, nothing else.
    From my (few) modding attempts with cree emitters, I got the feeling, that larger refelctors just dont work (while they are good with the Luxeons). No wonder to me, that such a large head does not give optimum results.

    Anyone has recieved or ordered this light yet?

    The site says it's regulated, can anyone confirm this? If it is indeed regulated, at what current is the Cree driven at?

    Also the head and tail seems similar to the 2x 18650 Xenon Ultrafire.
    Hope they will release the C2 with 2x 18650 body. The circuit probably can take it since the current C2 can run 2x RCR123 anyway.

    Its all to do with having a reflector of the correct depth to width
    ratio.

    The reflector in the Lumapower D-mini and M1 throws like crazy.
    (nearly 10,000 lux at 1 meter)
    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine

    do you happen to know the runtime on one 18650? is the light even regulated?

    beefy,

    according to the dealer it is in fact regulated, the led module looks very similar to one of the lumapower lights. wont be suprised if they even have the same circuit inside.

    I havent done runtime to verify this myself, will do once i recieve the equipment

    I've tried 2 x CR123, 2 x RCR123 and 1 x 18650 and all worked fine.
