Ultrafire C2 HA-III

Am looking at this light, I want it below 18 or $28 so I avoid UK import tax (which adds 13 to the price - "administration cost"), and this looks quite good.

Was wondering if anyone had any experience of it. I want a light that will show me potholes even under street lights at 15mph+ - my current light set up doesn't do this (fenix L2D on helmet and B&M cyo on fork crown). So I want a torh that will throw the light well - I don't care too much about flood.

I have that very light and can say it's well suited for cycling; tight beam with a large floody donut and the led color is more yellowish and soft than blue. This light works slightly better with cr123 batteries than an 18650. This light is not powerful enough to be of much use in the city imho but for darker rural riding it's good. A big plus with getting a C2 is that it's one of the best bodies for drop-ins which are cheap. The C2 is well suited to accept a higher efficiency led for greater throw (like an r2 or Q5 dropin) or even a P7 (floody walloflight) which would work better for city riding... not that the led that comes with this light is bad at all. You won't be disappointed with a C2!
