Decent light – Ultrafire C3 Cree Q5 5-Mode LED Flashlight with Extension (1.5V~4.2V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Very bright, easy to use. Can accept two AA batteries. Can be made waterproof by putting an O-ring in front of lense glass. Small enough for EDC.
Cons:
Low build quality. The soldering whitch makes contact with the body will over time get worn as you unscrew the tube from the light unit. This will over time cause bad contact points, leading to failure. It is possible to add new solder in order to retain contact. Batteries have a loos fit (AA) but this can easily be adjusted for.
Other:
I found the fast blink and flash mode useless, same goes for the lowest setting. It has high spread.
Bottomline:
It is a good light for as long as it lasts. Mine lasted for about 2 months.
