I've got my 7G5-V2 since one week.
The Throw is very very good, even the LumaPower MRV SKIV with Turbo Force Head is not so good!
By the way, I heard that Crelant is developing a third flashlight with even more Throw … let's see!
V1 or V2....
I don't know which one to get!!
I want a 2x 18650 thrower for my collection.. the Crelant 7G5 (both) price is good... but why did they reduce output on V2? It makes it so much more difficult to decide. I wonder on average, how much less output there is on V2? I wish it was the same or higher on V2, not same or lower on average. Oh well.. The flat black on V1 is cooler too.
*EDIT* Just ordered the V2 from CPFMarketplace seller.. All the extras make V2 hard to pass up.
Found something labelled wrong maybe:
''From left to right: 4GREER 3100mAh 18650; Crelant 7G5-V2, 7G5-V1; Tiablo A60G; Niwalker 750; Thrunite Catapult V3, Sunwayman T40CS''
I think Tiablo and Niwalker are backwards..
Thanks, fixed.I think Tiablo and Niwalker are backwards..
Yes, exactly - it is hard to know what the variation in the V1 was like, as I only tested one sample. The reflector appears to be same, and the runtime on Hi on 2x18650 is the same (within normal variation limits), so I have no reason to expect the average throw/output to be all that different between V1 and V2. But you would need to have a good number of samples of each - tested under exactly the same conditions - to know for sure.So, normal variation means some are stronger, and some are weaker....and, so far, there is evidence that both stronger and weaker versions are out there. It was probably that way for V1 as well, but there was nothing to compare it to.
Its been rainy stormy here for days on end...I think Sunday is the next day projected to NOT be icky out....and, with any luck, I 'll ALSO have a chance Sunday night to go out and play.
I'll do a bunch of beam shots then if I can.
I have been holding off for a "hand held thrower" for a while. This one looks like it may be ideal.
Will it accept AW flat top cells?
Would TrustFire protected's be OK to use?
If so, how will performance be affected by using 3000mAh over 2400's?
I will probably primarily use in 2x18650 configuration.
Are Xtar WPII chargers any good? I have a Pila IBC, but want a low cost option to give as a gift with a 7G5.
