  • Great versatile flashlight

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

    Pros:

    + Great versatility to be powered up (it really works with 1xAA 2xAA and 1xCR123A)

    + Pocket size with 1xCR123A (powerful) or 1xAA (a little dim with this)

    + Lubed quality threads

    + Well balanced

    + Nice spot, not too tight not too wide

    + Clip to attach it to a pocket and avoid rolling

    + Tail clicky switch (reverse)

    Cons:

    - Not aluminium anodized (scratches can be easily done)

    - O-rings very thin (not expected to last)

    - Not o-ring at the lens

    - Batteries rattle a little if you shake the torch

    OtherThoughts:

    Don´t remove the clip if you plan to mount it again later. It's very hard to do it and that's the way I got a lot of scratches and discovered the low quality aluminium it is made of.

    Bottomline:

    For the price this is one of the best torches you can get at DX. I got also the black model and it's the same quality/features.
