    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    -The machining and finish on this is almost perfect -Nicely balanced
    -O-ring and simple cord lanyard included
    -Hard anodized finish

    Cons:

    -The threads holding the two halves of the flashlight together are not lubed, so a thin coating of silicone grease should be applied to help prevent galling.
    - As the top is screwed down, the flat part rubs against the battery terminals and the plate gets scratched very quickly.
    - after about 5 minutes of us it can get up to 40 C (100 degrees F) or so.
    - presentation box inadequately protects the flashlight

    OtherThoughts:

    - I've been pleasantly suprised by the quality of the light.
    -It is a well made unit and definitely not a toy
    -13 days to Spain is pretty good too
    -With the four 18650 batteries installed, the UV-S5 weighs 512 grams (1 lb., 2 oz.) and it measures about 135 mm long by 65 mm wide at the head; too big for a pocket

    Bottomline:

    During the daylight inside the house, the FandyFire UV-S5 seems powerful when it's turned on, but it's not really super impressive until you fire it up at night. Go outside and turn it on and it's absolutely mind-blowingly amazing -- by far the most powerful flashlight I have ever seen. It almost feels like the thing kicks back in your hand when you press the button!
