sweet torch – Ultrafire C1 Q5-WC 230-Lumen LED Flashlight with Clip (2*CR123A/1*18650) Reviews

Pros:
Very bright.
Unfortunately I'm new to high power LED torches but this thing is gruntier than all incandescent based torches I've used (Excluding spot lights of course). My 500,000 candle power spot light (really a 25W 6V halogen) is about 2-3x as bright.
Lasts forever. Haven't run it flat yet. I'd est 3 hours run time on my 18650s.
Excellent beam. A good clean spread for wide area lighting, plus a good spot for long distance. A torch for all occasions.
Compact. Smaller than most 2AA torches!
Cons:
Had a few issues getting it going out of the box. In the end I used a multimeter to confirm there was juice getting to the top, worked first pop. Might be a bit overgreased from factory. Same issue popped up later on and had to whack the torch against my hand a couple of times to get it going. But I use it heaps and that's only happened once since I originally got it going.
Other:
Bottomline:
Fantastic.
