    Good build quality, except for the switch. Bright. Very nice finish.


    This is not a Q5 flashlight! This flashlight uses the exact same diode as the SKU6117 (shape, size, leads, brightness). It is most definitely 230-lumen.

    The on/off switch is picky.

    the SOS mode is actually an SOO mode. :)

    The mode function is hard to figure out, sometimes it has "memory" other times it would allways start from the brightest mode.


    DX should probably check on some of these products... I tend to trust this site, and when something like this happens I get dissapointed.


    I've bought many flashlights from DX, and I can say this is not one of my favorites.

    I will look into a real Q5 or R2 to buy - this one I used as a gift.
