Absolutely Awesome!! – FandyFire UV-S5 CREE XM-L T6 3-Mode 3000LM 3-LED White Flashlight w/ Strap - Yellow (4 x 18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
Insanely bright: This thing is even brighter than the Trustfire XML-3T6. Both utilise 3 x XM-L LEDs but this one easily outshines the other torch.
Comfortable: This torch fits nicely in the hand, has a nice weight to it without feeling overly heavy, and nicely balanced.
Compact: This thing is about the same length as a WF-502b though much thicker carries 4 x 18650s in parallel
The MODES!!!: Using an electronic switch on the side (which is very easy to use) you have 2 modes immediately available to you - High, and Low. There is a strobe mode too but you have to hold the button down for approx. 2 seconds to activate it. Pressing the button again will return you to High mode.
Cons:
No lube on the threads and o-rings
Only an o-ring included as spare. No glass lens or lube included
Could be a little fat for some people
Lanyard could be awkward to attach, if you decide to use it
You may not like the colour?
Other:
Bottomline:
This is definitely a good buy, if not for your everyday use then buy it for the bragging rights. You won't regret it.
