Great flashlight, but it gets warm soon – Ultrafire C3 Cree Q5 5-Mode LED Flashlight with Extension (1.5V~4.2V) Reviews

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

Pros:
-Uses AA batteries, both NiMh and alkaline.
-Great luminescence on 1xAAA and 2xAAA modes.
-Great construction with a lot of care on details.
-responsive switch, not like others that can cause flickering.
-Useful as a bikelight, due to good balance between flood and throw.
-Decent runtime with 2xAAA batt's
Cons:
-It gets warm very quick
-The box in which it cames is straight ugly
-Full black contruction (a bit of colours would be nice)
Other:
-Good light, amazing for the price, but i'm a bit concerned about the heat it produces. Even here there are almost 32ºC every day, i don't want to burn it, so i'm gonna try to open it to put some thermal compound on it. It's not a fatal error, but i like my stuff to work a long time! hehe
Bottomline:
Definitely a great buy. You can bought it even as a gift (funny thing, no one cares about flashlights until they need one, and when you use it they start asking about it)
Better construction than F20, for sure, and great
