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

    Pros:
    It has a excellent quality, more even the other torchs i adquired. Nice duration of the batteries, much more than 14500. Nice brightness.
    Cons:
    None. The r5 led is a little brighter than the q5, but the q5 is still a good led and has the best combination Brightness-Durat...

    Best single mode 18650 light

    posted by djltoronto1 on 10/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Best size of any 18650 light. This one is the shortest and smallest diameter I found that uses 1 single 18650 battery. the quality is great, it's anodized, not painted, so it's much more durable. The tail switch clicky works very well, and instantaneousl...
    Cons:
    None found. I suppose I may like a metal clip on this lights, but that's not a con as it's not advertised to come with one.

    nice pocketable torch

    posted by ThomasR099 on 06/01/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very nice torch/flashlight for the money, surface finish is nice and uniform; the led is bright and machining tolerances seem quite reasonable. O-rings present to get some weather sealing
    Cons:
    At first, because of the anodizing, the light doesn't work well, you need to sand the threads a bit to get good contact between...

    nice little flashlight

    posted by santeri000 on 05/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright for it's size, I'm very impressed. Small size, it's a genuine pocket sized torch. Good sturdy build quality. Takes Protected 18650's. wrist strap. Doesn't get hot when using long times. One mode is enough for this size lamp. Nobony needs strobo ...
    Cons:
    Cannot really fault a 12.00 torch that pumps out this amount of light. No clip so you cannot stick it on your pocket edge.

    Nicely made and bright

    posted by fuzz2050 on 01/27/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This might be the nicest make flashlight I've bought from DX. It has a good, solid feel, and seems like it will stand the test of time well. Even my Fenix lights don't all have such a nice heft. It's also plenty bright and has a decent beam pattern.
    Cons:
    None really that I can think of, this flashlight is bright, durable and compact, all of which are positives.

    Cons:
    None I can think of.

    Very good quality

    posted by rcolom on 01/04/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a flashlight with a very good quality, no the usual DX quality. It's made with metal, not plastic, and it's very sturdy. Pieces are strong and fit perfectly. The on/off button is also made of quality materials. The light it emits is very strong, and...
    Cons:
    The flashlight heats up quite a little when functioning, and stays hot until turned off, but that is the normal operating behav...

    Perfect little have-around

    posted by GmanNL on 12/30/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Great little flashlight to always have it in your car, backpack or survival/emergency kit. It's light, it's slim, it fits perfectly in your hand. Battery lasts forever it seems. The glowing button is a nice extra.
    Cons:
    It's as basic as they come: Only 1 mode, on/off only, no low/high power setting. No focus possibility. It gets warm in like 5 ...

    High quality bright led lamp

    posted by mpsaren on 07/26/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Marvelous lamp for bicycle or other purposes. Robust metal chasing and water resistant seals for use it in rain. Quality of build is very very good and sealing fits well. Very long operation time with one charge. Extremely good lamp light!
    Cons:
    Requires special power cell and charger, but if you have these already there is no reason to buy this lamp.

    IT's a good portable flashlight, easy for any use even for women (purse).

    posted by achridian on 07/14/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a nice looking robust portable flashlight It has O-rings and actually is water resistant (haven't tried it in deep water though) Lighting is pretty good It's quite small It's very good if you compare portability/light output You can put it almost ...
    Cons:
    The lamp naturally uses 18650 batteries and in my case (SKU 121452) the delivered torch did not have contact on the + side of t...
