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

    Pros:

    I like the flexibility of this light regarding which battery that it can use.
    Nice overall build quality.
    O-Ring pre-lubed.
    Clicky is easy to work with
    Clean thread on mine.
    Warn LED colour.
    Excellent Regulation with 2xAA Ni-mh battery.
    Smooth beam thanks to OP reflector.

    Cons:

    Dont much diference in brightess between 1xAA, 2xAA or 1x14500.
    Using 1x14500 is not as bright as other light that using lithium such as RCR123 or 18650 lights.
    Wont tail stand.

    OtherThoughts:

    Use 1xAA or 1x14500 for portable size and use 2xAA for excellent regulation and longer runtime.

    Bottomline:

    I owns two Ultrafire C3 the first one has purple colour to it the second one has a nice warm-white colour which is excellent. This light has less aggresive driver than my other light, using single AA is already at Max brightness not much difference going to 2xAA nor 14500.
    Should have been upgraded with much better driver that can take advantage of higher voltage thus higher current.
