Just to share i just got a really good flashlight off ebay for less than $16. It uses the Cree T6 LED and is super bright. It has the option to run on 4-AAA, or one 18650, or one 26650 li-ion. Right now the 26650 is not a cheap option but I hope it will be in the future, the four AAA's are very cheap and will last me a while. The seller got it to me in about 2 weeks, which is real fast from china. The wide beam is very impressive, the narrow show's the LED's die, similar to what the OP posted.
I got this flashlight because of the T6 LED and the fact that it will take 4-AAA's, there are several T6 versions out there that only use 3-AAA's and that odd number is annoying IMO. I would also like to use 26650's when the price comes down.
Questions....hopefully someone here knows the answers!
1) Does the "green" tail-cap glow in the dark?
2) Any idea what the output of the T6 is specifically for this flashlight? I would bet money that it is not 1800 lumen as advertised.
3) Also, anyone know what kind of differences in lumen when you have flashlights which accepts multiple types of batteries like the one above? AA vs Lithium-ion?
