    Witch P7 flashlight for Helmet mounting: TrustFire SSC P7 or MTE "P7-D" or xxx?

    I am going to buy HA-III SSC P7-C (SXO) 3-Mode 900-Lumen LED Bike Light Set

    and want another flashlight as backup/helmet light

    Witch of the two below would be best for night ride MTB on helmet?

    TrustFire SSC P7 C-BIN 900-Lumen 5-Mode LED Flashlight (1*18650)

    or

    MTE "P7-D" SSC P7-C 5-Mode Memory 900-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*18650)

    If they are as similar as it seems, it should be the one with the best spot I guess.

    MTE MCE M3-2, MCE pill is smaller than a P7 therefore produces a tighter spot, i had this light 9 months ago and nothing has beaten it yet, including the new P7 bike light and the MGRX1 which was twice the price!

    Is MTE MCE M3-2 the same as "MTE "P7-D" SSC P7-C 5-Mode Memory 900-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*18650)" ??

    I am having major challanges getting to www.dealextreme.com website from Denmark the last couple of days.

    Keep getting this:
    "
    Network Error (tcp_error)

    A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"

    No, P7-D is good, will keep my standard one on my bars next to my P7 bike light (the new one)

    MCE is good though (16501), slightly more powerful than the P7 (16092) about 10% doing lux tests and does penetrate much further. Better for your head, and dont let the 8 modes put you off as it goes on in med, then one tap for high, then off (full click) and back and to get back to med. PWM is more efficient than resisitor controlled modes too.

    Will hopefully get those beam shots on the other thread so you can look for yourself. The P7 light isn't as good as a torch though.

    Ooh you cheeky chappie, yes that one! Not too impresses with it, not even 500 lumen on full or is mine just a dodgy one!

    I don't think I see the MTE MCE M3-2 listed on MTE website? Also, which of these use PWM and which use resistor?

    Sku 16501, just search dealextreme and that no. in google and it will be the top result.

    As a rule anything that is 2 mode is reisitor and anything 3 or more is PWM, the M3-2 is PWM.
