  • Multi 18650 flashlights

A few years back it all started for me with the famous SkyRay King and Supfire M6!
Budget multi-cell, multi-led flashlights.
Throwing about 2000 lumens out the front with CREE XML leds, which at that point was quite extraordinary.
These days, the multi-cell 18650 flashlights have become really really powerful.
Check out the reviews!
