    Medium thrower is exactly what I would call the G25C2. You'll not be disappointed! I have to say that although I prefer the Eagletac now, even the TN11 is an excellent flashlight, so going for that would have not been a mistake either.

    What do you mean more spill? Brighter or just wider? I still think G25C2 needs smooth reflector...

    Just got my G25C2 in the mail today. So far so good, I'm going to try it out tonight. It's got the cool white tint I really like that about it. I can take some pic of it in a place that is full of trees, so I can get a throw distance if any body wants me to. My opinion to really tell the brightness is an outdoor shot.

    Yes!
    BTW, could you comment on the UI. Does the head feel loose when you change the settings?
    Thanks.

    Maybe I missed it, but are we all talking about the XM-L U2 (Cool White)? or the Neutral?

    Just looking at these and thinking pulling the trigger, but not quite sure yet...

    By loose, are you saying the head has a bit of wobble to it?

    Only when you get to the hidden features like the strobe, it's not all that bad. More where the head threads on.

    By the way, did anybody figure out how to remove the clip? It should be possible according to the instructions but I can't see how. I feel stupid!

    Remove the tail cap. Then unscrew the knurled section right above the clip. The clip slips out.

    Thanks everyone. Have been looking at flashlights for the past few days too figure out which to get for my very first proper flashlight (The best one I owned before this is a generic Tesco 1W LED flashlight). I was just about to grab the Fenix TK35, I was always a little hesitant due to the plastic battery holder, green tint, and rattleing sounds, wasn't too sure on it's looks either. And then i found this thread Perhaps not quite as bright from the specs, but everything else seems better all for £10 cheaper.

    I picked it up with 2x AW 18650 2200mah cells, Pila IBC charger, and the Eagletec 4cell extension tube, and the G25C2 ofcourse.

    This thread definitely made my decision easier. Now heres hoping it's better than that tesco flashlight..

    You might want to consider the Eagletac (Panasonic) protected 18650, 3100mAh for $16 before CPF discount depending on which dealer you buy from vs. $20 for the AW protected 18650 3100mAh. I use both brands in my T20C2 MKII and they are both top quality, however the Eagletac are button tops, whereas the AWs are flat tops. When I order the G25C2, I'm going to get a couple of the ET 3100s. I believe I read that the Eagletac 3100 even fits the ZL SC600.

    Well, I have no problems fitting the AW2900 in both of my SC600 (older gen) and an SC600w (newer gen). But the Eagletac batteries does look promising. One day I might find some device or light that couldn't take flat top cells and the ET batteries could save the day. At least I have some AW2200 left to play with.

    I don't have flat top batteries to try it with, but I'm pretty sure that they won't work with it. The way the head is designed does not allow flat top batteries to make contact.
    The silver contact sits lower than the white ring. Perhaps a drop of soldering lead could solve, at the cost of losing the reverse polarity protection

    I have tried 2x18350, Protected Trustfire 2400mah and unprotected Panasonic 3100mah and they all work perfectly. I think that quality unprotected batteries such as the panasonic are ok in a single cell configuration. The flashlight does not overdischarge them anyway.

    Damn! That's bad news then. Looks like I am forced to get the Eagletac batteries if I still want to maintain 3100 capacity.
