Bright but poor build. – 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:
Very bright, reasonably long throw for an LED emmitter, nice length
Cons:
AAs rattle inside, switch on mine is AWFUL. The torch won't stay on, needs to be shaken to get it to work. The seal around the glass on the lens is non existent and the glass moves without force.
Other:
Bright but I'm disappointed by the quality. This is my 7th cree light and I only have 2 that haven't developed a fault... Yet... And I say yet because they probably will.
Bottomline:
Disappointing. Cree/Ultrafire have the ability to be a market-leading torch manufacturer for environments like law enforcement and fire & rescue but NOT if they continue to have problems like all mine have.
