Review: Zanflare F1 (Cree XP-L V6) powerful 1240 lumen, high quality flashlight


Pros:
- excellent fit and finish with a premium feel
- rugged construction (IPX-8, 2m wr, HAIII hard-anodized finish)
- nice gift box, good English manual
- plenty of accessories (pocket clip, lanyard loop, belt holster, 2 spare o-rings, USB cable)
- on/off tail switch prevents unwanted turning on, separate side switch for modes
- window breaker tip
- tail stands
- USB charging with indicator LED (red -> green)
- the micro USB port is well protected by the screw-on collar
- mode memory
- strobe modes can't be accessed accidentaly
- low voltage warning (by flashing)
- reverse polarity protection
- versatile output modes (from 1 lm moonlight to 1240 lm flare)
- pleasent neutral white color temperature (4500-5000K)

While taking the beam shots I knocked it down from the porch and it landed 4 meters below on the lawn. I washed it under the tap and it was like new. :)

Cons:
- the belt holster is not so convenient to use
- bigger sized than the average 18650 battery flashlights
