  • Powerful one mode flashlight

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

    Pros:

    + Powerful with RCR123 3.6v batteries

    + No problem taking protected 18650 batteries (sku 5776). They fit perfectly

    + Double quality o-ring at the tail thread

    + Sturdy construction

    + Very compact

    + Low price

    + Good hand grip, well balanced

    + Tight spot, though a bit weak spill

    Cons:

    - Lens not glued and no o-ring on it

    - CR123 batteries rattle a little (not with 18650)

    - Reverse tail cap clicky switch (I prefer forward)

    - Only one mode (DX should change this info)

    - Very thin o-ring at the head

    - Notches don´t avoid rolling

    OtherThoughts:

    The best performance I have tested is working with 2xRCR123 3.6v. The led is not as efficient as similar RC-K4 (sku 5379) but is powerful enough. Not too big not too small, not too heavy and not too light weight. It is just a "medium" flashlight in everything.

    Bottomline:

    For this price this is a good torch. Not a 2-mode as advertised but still useful as multi purpose help.
