XP-E or XR-E?
The description said:
C3 Cree XP-E R2 248-Lumen 3-Mode White LED Flashlight

But, Picture 2 clearly shows a Cree XR-E emitter?


what about the claimed 248 lumens (if it's not XP-E R2)?


Difference between XR-E and XP-E:
XR-E

XP-E

Hi,

I don't know the answer to your question, but I have this one:

https://www.fasttech.com/p/1282200

and looking at the emitter on mine, it looks like the XR-E picture. Also the title of the one I have is:

Mini Cree Q5 3-Mode 240-Lumen Waterproof LED Flashlight

and when I search for "Cree Q5", it's coming up with links to XR-E information, e.g.:

http://www.cree.com/~/media/Files/Cree/LED%20Components%20and%20Modules/XLamp/Data%20and%20Binning/XLamp7090XRE.pdf

So, if I had to guess, I'd say mine is an XR-E emitter, and probably the one you're asking about also?

Also BTW, the light I got is quite bright. I have a Zebralight SC52, and comparing that (in turbo high) to my "Cree Q5", both using 14500 batteries, I'd say that this light may be brighter than the SC52, to my eyes.

The SC52's beam is more floody than this light, but the center spot from this light is brighter than the SC52's. Kind of surprising :)!

Thank you for your reply Jim.

From your comparison, I think its really XR-E emitter, because it's hotspot is brighter than SC52 (XM-L).
By the way, Could this flashlight use AA baterry?

Actually I have already had XR-E, XP-G, XP-G2 and XM-L LED flashlights (Sipik SK68 ~XR-E, Led Lenser P7 ~XR-E, Trustfire R5 ~XP-G, Thrunite Ti2 ~XP-G2 and Saber 1A ~XP-G2, Trustfire Z5 ~XM-L and Trustfire 3T6 ~XM-L, Nitecore EA4 ~XM-L). That's why I am looking for XP-E flashlight now :D
(I just realize the difference today, but I have paid this flashlight on March 28th, 2013) LOL

Hi,

Yes, the one I have works with 1xAA, as well as 14500. I couldn't remember if I had tried it earlier, so I just checked with an AA Alkaline I had around, and it worked fine.

Why did you ask? Does that tell you something about the emitter?

Later,
Jim

Hi,

BTW, I just realized that the ITP A3 EOS has an XP-E emitter. I have one of those, one of the 1st lights I got (it's a 1xAAA).

Because they both look very similar to each other. I think they are using the same drivers. May be an OEM flashlight.
About the emitter, smaller emitter produces more focus/throw beam than bigger ones.

XR-E < XP-E < XP-G < XM-L

ITP A3 is good flashlight and looks like Maratac or Olight 1xAAA too :D

You're probably right that it's OEM. It looks, physically, like the "Small Sun ZY-C1", with similar specs also.

Probably the one I have is the same as the one you're asking about, but the one I have has a small compass on a black strap. Strap is really short though :)...

Hi,

BTW, if you do find a "reasonably-priced" one with XP-E emitter, and especitally if it's a good thrower, please post back?

Thanks,
Jim

Yeah, thank you for your suggestion, but the smiling shark uses 18650 battery (I am looking for AA), while build quality of uniquefire flashlight does not look better than C3 Stainless steel :D
