Default ultrafire 14500 stainless host question

Ive noticed that dx has 2 of these in stainless, one being single mode and the other a 5 mode. The price difference is pretty large and i was wondering are the tail clickys the same? Are the modes part of the driver circuit?(not used for the light when used as a host)

A link would help... Depends on the host... I have seen a torch with 3 click tail switch. I would take a educated guess and say it would most defiantly be a driver function, but I can't be 100% sure, with out it in my hand.

I personally have this cheapest option: DealExtreme: $13.95 Ultrafire C3 Stainless Steel Cree Q5-WC 5-Mode 190-Lumen Memory LED Flashlight (1*AA/1*14500)

It is just a regular tail clicky, would make a great laser. May I ask why?

I didnt know if the modes were a function of the driver or the switch, as long as its a function of the driver, it doesnt matter.

Thanks

Default Re: ultrafire 14500 stainless host question

I believe it is the driver in regards to the single-mode and 5-mode, the clicky switch should be the same. I think the main difference in price is because of the different emitters. Cree bins, from dimmest to brightest: P4, p5, q2,q3,q4,q5,r2,r3,r4,r5.

I you're just getting for the host I would go for the cheaper one.

Just get the least expensive one as you won't be using any of the driver you will be scraping it off the ckt board so you can use it for the positive battery terminal.
