I would say it is. Although max output is not as high as the newer lights, you are not likely to be able to notice a difference (and it is still plenty bright). Efficiency is still great, at all levels.It looks like it should work well enough for my usage. Hoping it's still semi competitive.
I just ordered this light for myself, using early B-Day coin (13th).

With the exchange rate, it's all expensive but this was doable where higher end offerings were not. So with that said, I think I'll be pretty happy with throw on a single cell that still kind of fits in a pocket.
Multi fuel too, nice bonus with my other lights cells.
Thanks for another great review SB.
Nice, I'd like to do that mine, but is beyond my capability.Hi,
I dedomed the led (not me) its over my expectations ! Now the light is a little more warm, the beam is more concentrated, I would say that on medium almost reach the distance from high before dedom, there are no artifacts or defects in the light.
If was rated at 22-23000 cd, now in my eyes appear aprx 40-45000 cd.
Compared with my Nitecore MT40 (rated at 32-34000 cd) now M22 throws further with 40-50 meters!
I’m very happy and I recommend this modification if you have the possibility, is almost the perfect flashlight: small/compact, neutral light, throw is very nice.
PS: I run continuously with IMR 2×18350 (good runtime, full turbo to the end)
Kudos thank you.Hi,
Here is some pictures, before and after dedomed, comparison between M22 dedomed and Nitecore MT40, three meters of wall.
Sorry for the quality of the pictures, this is aprx what my eyes see, in last photo I reduce exposure to see better the difference between the beam (without question now is little more concentrated to M22 vs MT40).
There is no greenish, some white-yellow is in reality.
I'm glad you came back and mentioned that as I was eyeballing my M22 last night to DD.I noticed a detail after dedome, flashlight is getting warm earlier than before dedome.
Is my second flashlight dedomed and it has the same behavior (first was Crelant 7G2CS) .
Wow, colour me impressed.Is not a huge difference in heat, but certainly it is. The spill is the same.
Till now I didn't see a flashlight 1x18650 with high power led to stay on max more than few minutes without getting hot.
Anyway is a good upgrade ! ~23000 cd vs ~40-45000 cd.
You just about convinced me I've got to do this to mine as well.Yes, I believe so. I don't have devices to measure this, but I compare direct with Nitecore MT40 (which I have also) which in Selfbuilt review was rated at 32-33000 cd. Is clear that hot spot is tighter and go further at M22 after dd.
I will try in one night side by side to show the difference (also the colour is much nicer at M22 in the night ).
You not lose the initial spill, only hot spot is tighter. Is a little thrower in a very compact size (I love this).
The person which made the operation made a superb job, no defects in led or light.
