I am looking to get a side by side 3X18650 light for hiking and biking and such. But so far I haven't really found a light that I like a lot, here is a list of what I have looked at so far and why they suck.
Jetbeam rrt-3: Holy crap expensive, stuff on the tail cap other than just a switch, holy crap expensive.
Ultrafire knock off of above light: Cost WAY to much for a knock off, like $180(I think, its been a bit and I don't remember its name to look it up)
cnqualitygoods 3X18650 XML light: Has no name, but that would fit nicely with my horse. Small OP reflector so not much throw, I have seen a test of it at about 20k lux . The switch is on the battery holder and looks to be a run of the mill junk that will not hold up under 2.8 amps for long. Also a T6/C1 binned led. I want T6/C3. It sure is cheap though.
Legon II: I have no idea what the back story is on this light be all I know is I can't find it for sell anymore. It sure sounded good though.
The 3X18650 Parallel version of the Megalennium http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...50-Megalennium : First holy crap expensive X2! With this I would need a head for it, so that means a M3 head and using D36 drop-ins(not much throw and icky heat transfer) or get a surefire turbo head and a nailbender tower unit( Holy $%!> expensive) with even crapper heat transfer. But It would be one hell of a nice light.
Olight SR51: WHY YOU NO HAVE BIGGER TUBE AN USE 3X18650!?!?
Sunwayman V60C: This is the light I am most likely going to get, but for some reason I can't get comfortable liking this light. It has an exposed positive and negative at the base for a gimmicky charger that goes with it, so I would be hesitant to just toss it into a pack with my gear. There is no warmer tent option. Its battery's are in serial. And my biggest gripe is its efficiency. In a test I seen done here on CPF its run time with 3.1AH battery's was 2:33. the battery's used had a capacity of 11.16WH and a XM-L on average uses 10 Watts when driven properly, so if the light was running perfectly efficient it would run for 3:20 if my math is right. So it seams that it is only running at %76 efficiency. I get that it has a lot of springs and such but with just a simple linear regulator you should be able to get around three hours...This light should do better
So are there anymore 3X18650 lights that I missed?
