Wuben E7 (5000K) Video Transcript:

General thoughts after a week of usage/size comparison/practicality/interesting things:
• So Wuben has launched the 5000K model of the E7 – this is a multi-purpose flashlight that has modular features. You can also use it as a headlamp. There are also accessories such as the 18650 extension tube, and AP40 gesture sensor. Wuben was kind enough to send me a free sample of their E7 in 5000K for me to review it in this video.
• What’s included: E7, instruction manual, headband, USB charging cable, 18350 cell.
• Comparison with wuben X0 – there are some differences in the design, LEDs, length, and anodizing. X0 has extra metal/finishing options.

Overall Construction, LED, lens, bezel and reflector
• Angular with lots of interesting cutouts. Thankfully there are no sharp edges. The anodizing is smooth and slightly glossy. It’s still grippy. Steel clip is screwed on the back, and allows you to deep carry the light. I like this clip better than the one on the X-O which was too rigid.
• Charging port on the top of the light, under a rubber gasket. The switch is also on the head and made of aluminum.
• 2x Osram P9 LEDs. 2X TIR lenses – slightly recessed with a rectangular bezel/retainer.
• The E7 comes with a 18350 cell that can be easily removed by unscrewing the tailcap. The extension tube is a great addition as it allows you to triple the battery life with an 18650 cell. The AP40 Inductor connects via the USB port on the top of the light. This light is only designed to be used with a protected 18350/18650 cell. Do not use it with an unprotected cell.
• Headband – I love how the light slots in perfectly and locks. No fiddling around with rubber rings. You can also swivel the light up and down in the mount. To release the light, you just pull a tab on the side.

UI – modes
• Press once to switch on – memory mode. Click and hold to cycle LMH.
• Double press for turbo, triple press for strobe.
• Quad press to lock/unlock.

Performance – total output, beam profile, longevity, practicality
• CCT, CRI, Ceiling bounce test
• Floody beam with a nice diffused hotspot – you get visibility into your peripherals. Throws a decent distance for a light of this size.

• If you want the other functions like the gesture sensor and extension tube, you’ll need to purchase the other accessories separately.
• Rubber gaskets are a bit annoying with too much play when open. It’s also a bit tricky to unscrew the light as there’s so little material to grasp onto – at least it’s easier than the X0!
• Smaller details like the quality of the anodizing and bare threads. But it doesn’t affect the performance of the light.

• One of the most versatile headlamp/flashlight combinations out there for a budget price. I like the dual LEDs, hot-swappable battery design, and sustained output on high. You can use it as an EDC, around the house, bike light, or headlamp, what more could you want?
