    LED torch - advise please

    Morning all - my trusty WF-501b finally gave up last night - I'm wanting to replace it.
    Want single 18650, single mode, and compact, prefer no zoom - this is my pocket torch - already have headlamps and a couple of Maxtoch

    Any suggestions?

    Have you had a look into the convoy models? I picked up one of those a whole back for work. Worked absolutely brilliant. I had the convoy s2+ model. Only thing it has that you've stipulated you don't want is, it has multiple brightness modes. I wonder whether you can order one that has been programmed for just one mode.

    haha - 6000lm out of a single T6. Chinese exaggeration at it's best.

    What stuffed out on your torch? It may be easier just to get another drop in LED / driver / reflector module. Something like this: 1-Mode 6700K 450-Lumen Smooth Aluminum Drop-in Module w/ CREE XML-T6 - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

    6000lm from a single chip is ridiculous

    Nitecore SRT6 fits the bill and a great little torch.
