  • Cheap 4x AA flashlight

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

    Pros:

    It's cheap and runs with 4 standard AA batteries (very long runtime, easy supply everywhere). It has just one mode, very simple. The switch uses a magnets contact, therefor the swicht is 100% water proof. Quality of the plastic and O-rings is ok.

    Cons:

    Build quality is below expectation:
    It takes just 3 turns to (un-)screw the lid. There is a plastic lens build into the lid, and it does press against the LED (to be more specific: it presses against the plastic lens in front of the LED. It fell off very soon, only after opening/closing the light a few times). I think the lid should press against the metal houding of the LED module.

    OtherThoughts:

    Quite nice housing, can be used for custom projects.

    Bottomline:

    Mine came Dead on Arrival
    Ordered 112889, maybe it's working better.
