Under that search i came across SKU 9712358



I never heard of that brand and know nothing about Osram LEDs. Can't help you with that. Couldn't find any reviews on it either.

I just need one more flashlight. Just one. Honestly. :D

Just have someone stand behind you with a 1.000.000 candle power spot light...

That will teach them coyotes...

I couldnt either. Figure i take another small gamble.





Some of the newer Convoys like SKU 9649874 have 12 mode "groups" with various modes, but one of the "groups" has only 1 mode (100% brightness) if you want. These have different LEDs than the other one and won't be as bright or reach out as far, but they'd probably still get the job done. Unless you shoot at extreme distances in the dark.



Thats in the next cart, thanks for the info on its mode(s). Il probably end up buying it after this.

Alot of false specs about lumens of specific flashlights. Is there any, that someone here owns, that actualy is over 300lm really?

Trying to find a flashlight that fits these criteria, but i feel like im on a hunt for a mythical creature.

#1 - over real 300lm
#2 - 30mm or less thickness on the handle(this will be mounted)
#3 - uses a single 18650/20700/21700
#4 - hopefully single mode(on/off) otherwise i can deal with 2-3 modes, 4 or more modes is redundant and a headache.





Anyone willing to help?


This is my flashlight. It's hi-mid-lo modes, and will start at whatever setting you used last. I have no doubt about it being a thousand lumens on high it is brighter than any household lighting. It uses one 18650 battery to power it.

We had a Boxing Day Event here some years ago and items were featured that if you were lucky enough to be the first of a set number available you could get a good deal on that item. I kind of knew a lot of people would be going for a fancy mod they had up but I saw this flashlight and wanted it. I'd never had anything but cheap run-of-the-mill flashlights.

The site (either that or my computer) crashed when I clicked though I clicked the moment the event began. I believed I'd lost out on it but when FT tech guy geek published the names of the winners for the limited supply of products (for an extreme deal) my name was on it. I also had about $13+ in rebate points which were converted for me so iirc I ended up only having to pay a couple dollars for this between the deal and the rebate points.

Edit - whoa, I just now noticed my flashlight has been discontinued sadly. It is an awesome flashlight.

...or you could do what photographers have been doing for decades and just put a fresnel in front of whatever light you've got.

Just thought of another option.

You mentioned having a Fandyfire 501B and I found SKU 3731503. It's a complete drop-in module listed at 1000lm and has only 1 mode. Super easy to install too. Just unscrew the bezel on your light and the entire module will drop right out from the front, then drop the new one in and screw the bezel back on. If more brightness is all you need from your 501B, it should help, and isn't much money. Don't know why I didn't think of it sooner. Old age I guess. ;)

I checked the pics and it looks like a genuine Cree LED, but I can't be positive they haven't got clones now. You can ask Anniepan to confirm it if you're interested.

Peaked my interest until I noticed it had been discontinued.

Never needed a flashlight but heard what i thought was a coyote right near us, somewhere yesterday at 5am.
Pup was spooked and ran right back to the door.

I should buy one.
Might help.

I think you made a typo. Did you mean SKU 7557001?
