Great flashlight! Bright! Nice colour! – FandyFire UV-S5 CREE XM-L T6 3-Mode 3000LM 3-LED White Flashlight w/ Strap - Yellow (4 x 18650) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Item came in a padded box, good for protecting the flashlight for its shipping. Includes a lanyard, and extra O-ring. Put in the 4x18650s (purchased separately), and wow! Very bright! Has large enough spill for suitable usage. Easy to use, one click for high mode, next click goes to low mode, and next click would turn it off. To go into strobe mode, switch to either high mode or low mode first, then hold the button. This is good, won't get into the vomitting strobe accidentally.
Cons:
The screwing in and out makes squeaky noise I'm afraid that might damage the threads. Lanyard may be too long. The clicky is a little small and quite easy to press. It is also "loose"; shaking the flashlight would make the clicky to produce a shaking noise. Possible to make it larger and slightly less difficult to click (so that would not accidentally turn flashlight on in bag).
Other:
Needs a medium mode. High mode may be too bright, low mode may be too dim. I like the colour of the flashlight body. With 4x18650s, the weight is less than 500g. Still quite handy, considering it gives out good amount of light.
Bottomline:
Recommended. Quite worth it for the price.
