  • NOT A Q5!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

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

    Cons:

    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.

    OtherThoughts:

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

    Bottomline:

    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.
