  • Good but not great

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

    Pros:

    + Cheap.
    + Extremely compact.
    + Needs only one AAA battery.
    + Works with NiMH batteries well.
    + Has a clip for easy carrying in a pocket.
    + Bright enough for its size and common purposes.
    + Does not become hot even after 2 hrs runtime.

    Cons:

    - 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).

    OtherThoughts:

    * 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.

    Bottomline:

    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.
