Really great value – TrustFire TR-801 Cree Q5-WC 230-Lumen LED Flashlight (1*18650) Reviews

Pros:
Five stars all round! I really love this flashlight. On a freshly charged battery it's very bright and lights up anything within 10 meters very nicely, but it's not what I'd call a thrower. That's one of it's best features in my opinion - the beam is nice and wide with plenty of spill which makes it much more useful for around the home and a great bike light. Build quality of mine is very good. Looks great. Nice finish. Switch has a good positive feel.
Cons:
Getting such a bright light for this price I guess you can't expect everything - I would love to have a low or medium mode. That's my only complaint.
Other:
Probably due to the smallish reflector, the beam is very SSC like with a nice transition from a wide spot to ample spill. Makes this light a pleasure to use in many varied situations.
Bottomline:
This would have to be one of the best value lights on DX!
