  • Bright little Light

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    - Works on AA and 14500

    - Uses a Cree XP-G (can't say if it's really R5, but it comes pretty close to my other R5 Light (sku.32954 driven by 2x18650) when using a 14500)

    - Overall Build Quality is ok

    - Mode Memory works, the light needs to be switched off for like 3-4s though

    - Has a useful clip and a GITD-Tailbutton

    Cons:

    - The build quality of the Tailswitch is really cheap crap

    - when driven by an AA, there is nearly no difference between the two modes

    - useless Strobe-Mode. Hi-Mid-Low would be better

    - The Light kept switching from High to Low and/or from Strobe to High by itself. It seems to be the fault of the switch though, didn't do that when i just bridged it. It seems to be gone now, after i dis- and reassambled and cleaned the switch.

    - Produces really high annoying noises

    OtherThoughts:

    - protected 14500 (sku.26124) are a tight fight but work without problems

    - i wouldn't recommend running the Light on High for to long when using 14500's, it gets quite hot after a while. But thats normal for such a small light

    Bottomline:

    Overall, a really nice light for the price.
