Good flashlight but has a few issues – Ultrafire C3 Cree Q5 5-Mode LED Flashlight with Extension (1.5V~4.2V) Reviews

Pros:
This light is very bright for its size. Has the option of using two different types of batteries. Has 5 modes that are fun to play with but maybe not very practical for most situations. Nice look and design. Feels solid when I'm holding it. Has a few issues that prevent it from being perfect (See below).
Cons:
Connection at the head is not very good. My light will turn off/on while I'm jogging with it at night which causes it to change modes (imgine running with a flashlight and having it all of sudden change to strobe mode). This is probably due to the battery not having a tight connection with the head. The lens that came with mine was loose and did not have an o-ring for waterproofing.
Other:
A few glitchy issues keep this light from being perfect. Other users have suggested fixes for these issues and I also suggest potential buyers to make some modifications to the unit.
Bottomline:
Even with the issues, I still think this light is a great value and am happy with my purchase.
