Best carry flashlight EVER
November 22, 2014
Bought at BJ over a year ago. I have and use Olight's too, but I liked the 800 lumen capability. I have used that function many times. Workhorse at 500 lumens and very conservative on CR123A cr17345 Panasonics.
Wanted to upgrade to 18650 protected battery but then I read a review of battery types and observed that protected 18650 batteries are slightly larger and longer and might not fit all CR123A flashlights.
Never to worry, the MT26 is longer and larger diameter to accommodate the protected 18650 battery. Strobe feature should be enhanced with 18650. Good deterrent.
Pros:Outstanding performance, didn't have to switch flashlights to upgrade to 18650 protected cell, constant companion.
Cons:hot head on 800 lumens.....small diamond with 3 heat vapors rising and small engraved HOT beneath triangle.....BELIEVE IT. Super hot when light comes on in your pocket when twisted to turbo. Won't do that again.
