  • Excellent for the price

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

    Pros:

    - Cree emitter
    - light is white and bright
    - barrel fits a 18650 battery or 2 CR123's
    - long runtime on a 18650
    - excellent machining and smooth threads

    - 2 modes (HI -> off -> LO -> off)

    - typical Romisen build quality

    - Price is right

    Cons:

    - No mode memory (but for this price, not a dealbreaker)

    - Reverse clicky (might be a plus for some)

    - Mine arrived with a cracked lens (replaced with my own parts)

    OtherThoughts:

    I have a couple of other Romisen single mode lights that use this same body and Luxeon emitters. This one with the Cree emitter is a little brighter on HI. I wish they offered this with a forward clicky.

    Bottomline:

    Excellent light for $16 and change. Be sure to get SKU 5776 (Trustfire Protected 18650) and a charger if you don't have them already.
