- Just a toy in a comparision with UltraFire WF-501 flashlight with Cree R2 LED. Soviet flashlight with 3.6V 0.26A tungsten lamp (not halogen) is some more bright than this one. - Tail-cap button is not glow-in-the-dark and DX does not sell such small glow-in-the-dark buttons. So it is difficult to find this flashlight in darkness and you to know very well where it is. - The reflector is not textured so beam has some "rings" (these "rings" are not bright so they are not annoying but may be annoying for extreme flashaholics).
* Described cons are not so actual for the price of this flashlight. * Power consumption is 0.18 A (measured with M838 multimeter using Ni-MH battery). * This flashlight is good as an useful gift. * We would be glad if DX would sell small tail-cap buttons like SKU.5714 for tuning flashlights with small buttons like this.
Good as a small EDC flashlight which you can always carry in your pocket but not enoughly bright for special purposes. Good as an useful gift.
