  • bright with excellent flood

    Pros:

    I like the type of light it gives out. I have these torches strapped to my mountain bike helmet nowadays. I previously used Romisen RC-K4 (sku.5379), and found the spot too intense. The RC-K4's would reflect light off the dust, creating a fog effect that I could not see past. I have since switched to these. Whilst their spot is not as intense as the Romisen RC-K4, the amount of light these things put out lights up more of the night time trail, without the spot that reflects off the dust. They are also a very compact torch - which means they are smaller and less likely to get caught on branches.

    Cons:

    The switch. Tail cap has to be screwed in all the way, and the switch may sometimes not activate on 1st press.

    OtherThoughts:

    You need a combination of flood and spot when mountain biking through thick bushland at night. These guys are a very good blend of spot and excellent flood.

    Bottomline:

    Compact and bright. The brightness of a Q5 is definately worth the extra power consumption!
